Changes for the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
The Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro trucks, the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro were the stars at the Chicago Auto Show, and in all three cases, the manufacturer promises ultimate off-road performance.
The 4Runner is equipped with a 4.0-liter V6 producing 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque, along with a five-speed automatic transmission. The TRD Pro now receives 2.5-inch Fox shocks that, along with TRD-rated springs, provide an additional one-inch ground clearance as well as an extra inch of wheel travel.
Compared to other versions of the 4Runner, the TRD Pro has a wider track of almost one inch, front and rear, which should enhance the stability of the vehicle. It also sports 17-inch black matte rims and Nitto Terra Grappler P265 / 70R17 off-road tires.
The exterior design of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro has not changed, and a choice of three body colors is available – Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and Voodoo Blue – the latter being unique to the TRD Pro version. The roof rack of the 2019 model has been redesigned to store laundry and equipment after a day of venturing off-road. Other features include LED fog lights, TRD Pro black grille, TRD Pro mats, TRD shift knob and Softex seats with red stitching.
The price of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro has not yet been confirmed, but the 2018 edition is priced from $ 52,920 before transportation and preparation costs. It will go on sale in Canada this fall.
