Built for Journeys, Both Near & Far

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner has the power to handle both city and highway traveling with ease, thanks to its 270-horsepower 4.0L V6 engine. However, it’s going off the beaten path where the 4Runner performance really shines.

This vehicle is available in part-time and full-time 4-wheel drive, which can provide extra traction when you need it and more efficiency when you don’t. Furthermore, the vehicle has optional off-roading features, like:

  • Multi-Terrain Select: Select from one of four terrain modes for an automatic engine throttle/traction control adjustment, so you can easily drive through any environment.
  • Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS): If your 4Runner is taking on some mini mountains, KDSS will automatically disconnect the sway bars to help improve wheel articulation. The moment your SUV hits flat land again, the sway bars will automatically reconnect.

Thanks to these features—and others, like Crawl Control—this SUV is up for just about any type of adventure.


Space for All Your Equipment

Any type of journey—be it picnicking at Bayview Park or just running errands—calls for a SUV that can carry all your belongings.

Luckily, the 2022 4Runner can handle this, thanks to its available maximum cargo room of 89.7 cubic feet. Plus, the second row has a 40/20/40-split fold-flat feature, while the available third row has a 50/50-split fold-flat feature. As a result, you can easily configure the entire cabin to fit as many people and items as needed.

Planning a trip to the beach or a weekend spent camping with the family? The 4Runner can be equipped to handle this as well. This SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly set up. Small boats, trailers, you name it—this Toyota model is ready for any fun getaway!
