Further leveraging the marketing potential of its TRD performance brand, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner will add a pair of new model designations in the form of the TRD Off-Road and Off-Road Premium variants. This new duo will slot under the more hard-core 4Runner TRD Pro and replace the current 4Runner Trail and Trail Premium models.

Like the trim grades they supplant, the new 4Runner TRD Off-Road/Off-Road Premium come standard with power-assisted 4-wheel vented disc brakes that feature Multi-Terrain ABS, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist as well as a locking rear differential. They also get the Multi-Terrain Select system that allows a driver to match the level of wheel slip allowed to surface conditions as well as Crawl Control that maintains a constant vehicle speed to cope with low-speed off-road situations. All of the above also are shared with the 4Runner TRD Pro. The new 4Runner TRD Off-Road/Off-Road Premium models boast enhanced approach and departure angles and can be equipped with Toyota’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System.

Visually, the new 4Runner TRD Off-Road and Off-Road Premium are distinguished black-accented alloy wheels and a unique “TRD Off-Road” badge on the C-pillar. Inside, the center console is trimmed in faux carbon fiber and the floor mats carry a TRD Off-Road logo. The TRD Off-Road Premium 4Runner adds a tad more flash with “TRD” red lettering on the front headrests. The 2017 Toyota 4Runner lineup will consist of SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro models. Pricing for all will be released closer to their arrival in showrooms later this year.
