Toyota SUVs come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but between the CR-V, RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner and Sequoia, the 4Runner is one of the best when it comes to off-roading. Designed for well-rounded capability, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner will go further with the choice of two drivetrains, adapt with terrain select and CRAWL control, and even tow more if necessary.
2020 Toyota 4Runner 4WD
AWD in the 2020 Toyota 4Runner comes in the form of two different drivetrain options. For starters, 4Runner models equipped with the SR5 4WD system get a combination of fuel efficiency and power for driving on uneven ground and other unpaved territories. The well-known Toyota TRD Pro trim on the 4Runner makes for an improved 4WD system that features A-TRAC (Active Traction Control) and Torsen® locking limited-slip differential.
2020 Toyota 4Runner Terrain Modes
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner has a Multi-Terrain Selector knob that allows you to adjust the amount of wheel slip the drivetrain allows before locking up, so it can deliver torque to the wheels that need it most. The settings, in decreasing levels of wheel slip, are:
- Mud & Sand
- Loose Rock
- Rock & Dirt
By selecting the optimal mode, the 4Runner can conquer troublesome terrain that might be difficult or impossible for other vehicles.
2020 Toyota 4Runner Driver Assist Technology
Lots of new vehicles come with driver-assist sensors for safety. Most of these deal with keeping vehicles centered in their lanes, or blind-spot monitoring, but the 2020 Toyota 4Runner gets even more. With Hill Start Assist Control (HAC), the 4Runner can prevent itself from rolling backward downhill when the driver switches from brake to accelerator while climbing. Downhill Assist Control (DAC) sort of handles the opposite situation, and selectively applies braking force to control the vehicle’s speed when driving on a steep or slippery decline.
