2018 Toyota 4Runner at Kim's Toyota

The 4Runner has been around for over 30 years, and most of that was fighting the toughest terrain around! In fact, 90% of the 4Runners sold in the last decade are still kicking and kicking strong! In 2018, the Toyota 4Runner keeps its body-on-frame setup for 2018 and the option to fit up to seven people when outfitted with an available third row. It is powered by a robust V-6 engine, and it sweetens the deal by being either four- or rear-wheel drive. There is a new Wilderness Package for 2018 that adds any-weather floor liners, crossbars, and a cargo tray. Look into the TRD Enhancement Package as well, which is an option for the TRD-levels, and installs a TRD aluminum skid plate in the front and 17" TRD matte-gray alloy wheels with all-terrain tires. You will certainly stand out brazenly against the elements in this version!

What powers the 2018 Toyota 4Runner and are there options?

This vehicle only needs one powerful engine and it gets it in the 4.0L V6 (DOHC 24-Valve with VVT-i) that sees 270-hp @ 5600 rpm and churns up 278 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4400 rpm. That's found here together with a 5-speed automatic (ECT-i) rocking a sequential shift mode. Then there is the fact that depending on the model choice, there are 3 setups for drive configuration: Rear-Wheel Drive with Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD), Part-time 4WD with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), and a Full-time 4WD with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) and Torsen limited-slip center differential with locking feature. The TRD model can see Bilstein high-performance shocks with rear remote reservoirs, while others can have coil-spring 4-link with lateral rod rear suspension with stabilizer bar. On the front, a 4Runner will have Coil-spring independent double-wishbone front suspension with stabilizer bar, for the most part, although there are other suspension systems possible, like the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) and the X-REAS Sport Enhancement Suspension. This beast can tow up to 5,000-lbs when properly equipped, and payloads can range from 1,495 to 1,700-lbs.
