Toyota’s 4Runner Gets Upgraded With Yakima Gear For 4×4 Adventures

Sep 27, 2019

Category: Rides

It’s not abnormal to see an automotive manufacturer take one of its flagship models back to the drawing board, gifting it with enhanced abilities, an upgraded visual attribution, and a steepened price tag. The latest platform in a long line of off-road-ready examples to receive said special attention is none other than Toyota’s 2020 4Runner — a “do-anything SUV” that’s been at the helm of the company’s catalog since 1984.

If you’re a fan of the 4Runner, but looking for something a bit more capable, Toyota has announced an all-new off-road-oriented version dubbed the “Venture Edition.” With a focus on outdoor exploration, the Venture will feature a handful of high-end upgrades from the industry’s leading proprietors, including a Yakima Megawarrior roof rack, 17-inch Gunmetal TRD wheels, and enhanced visual upgrades throughout. Performance-wise, the specialized 4Runner boasts a four-link rear axle and coil-spring suspension, complementing its part-time 4WD system and 2-speed transfer case. To accent this, Toyota’s standard CRAWL control allows drivers to focus on the traversal of terrain by regulating the 4Runner’s engine speed and braking force via computer — similar to modern traction control — on a variety of surfaces.
