2018 4Runner Durability and Capabilities

One of the reasons the 4Runner is capable of so much is because it is one of the only SUVs that still has a body-on-frame construction. This ruggedness is powered by a V6 engine that provides 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque and did we mention it could tow up to 5,000 pounds?

While traveling on the rough terrain, it is likely that there are also going to be some hills to climb. Luckily the standard Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) is in place to keep the SUV from rolling backward as the driver switches from brake to accelerator. What goes up must come down, right? While traveling down any hill, the 2018 4Runner offers the available Downhill Assist Control (DAC) that selectively applies the brake to keep a controlled speed on a steep or slippery descent.

As if you weren’t convinced already that the 2018 4Runner is the outdoor SUV for you, a few more of its features include the ventilated disc brake system, the full-size spare and the underbody skid plates.
