Toyota has another speedy SUV for us. 2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro! The first drive of the car should begin where the pavement ends. That way you can get a real impression of the power and the possibilities of it. This new car is long awaited and we are sure that it will be popular. We will pay the most attention to the engine and performance, since they are the key at these kinds of cars. Let’s talk about Engine, specs and release date of this car!
2016 Toyota 4Runner Exterior
2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro looks like a business-car with black badging, black-hazel headlights and has a bold front grille. A 1/4-inch TRD stamped aluminum front skid plate will seem the hood look even tougher. The wheels are 17-inch lightweight matte black TRD alloy and they are wrapped in 31.5-inch Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires for maximum traction on road or off. This car has a 4.700-lb towing capacity with tow hitch, thanks to the powerful engine that can pull that off.
4Runner TRD Pro interior
As usual, the new model looks better and updated than the previous. This new Toyota 4Runner offers a next-level cabin with its red-stitched SofTex seats and advanced Entune Audio system. Apps like Bing, iHeartRadio and Pandora 13 plus navigation10 and Bluetooth 14 help keep you connected. As for some technical details, Available Multi-terrain Select allows you to choose from four modes that will regulate wheelspin by adjusting the engine throttle setting and braking pressure to provide you with maximum traction on various off-road situations.
To help you negotiate uncertain terrain, 4Runner Trail has an electronically controlled locking rear differential that distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels, so they move at the same speed, even if one is off the ground. It also ensures a predictable output to help you maintain a controlled pace over obstacles.
2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Engine and performance
The base model will still have the familiar 4.0 liter V6 engine VVTi that delivers 270 hp and the capacity of 271 lb-ft of torque. There are also some sources that claim that there will be a V8 engine instead of V6, although the V6 is still a great choice for this kind of vehicle. The 4Runner TRD Pro has a TRD-tuned suspension and can help you deal with the trail ahead. Up front sits a TRD-tuned 2.5-inch TRD Bilstein coil-over-shock setup matched to TRD-tuned springs.
The rear gets 2-inch TRD remote-reservoir Bilstein shocks to help give you the extra wheel travel and control you need to conquer almost any extreme surface. With this car, you should have no fear when it comes to the surfaces some other cars couldn’t handle. 2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is built to conquer the toughest terrains. Available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) allows each wheel to respond to the terrain separately. Crawl Control (CRAWL) 1 assists the driver in determining an optimal combination of low speed and traction. Hill Start and Downhill Assist Control (HAC/DAC) 2, 3 assist the driver with braking on uphill and rough downhill situations. Thanks to these, even the meanest obstacles are just another story to laugh over at the campfire.
