Engine and performance of Toyota 4Runner TRD:
All TRD trims are powered by four liters V6 DOHC twenty four valve VVT-I engine generating 270 horsepower at 5600 rpm and torque of 278 pounds feet at 4400rpm. It provides an estimated mileage of eighteen miles in city and twenty miles on highways.
It delivers smooth and linear acceleration with five speed automatic transmission and there is no insufferable lag and it shifts to highest gears quickly because of its surprisingly strong V6 engine. Braking system is average with nebulous feeling through two thirds of pedal travel and it takes some time to apply smooth brakes while there is a lot of noise when we apply emergency brakes. Steering control of 4runner TRD is easy but it is a bit heavy at higher speeds and provides very less assistance at extremely low speeds. The handling of the car is stable and easy to control it with limited specific suspension especially when turning around corners and moving over bumps. The smooth throttle delivery makes 4runner TRD feels more like a luxurious SUV than a truck while the superior chin clearance and sporty high gripped tires excels the 4runner in off road capabilities and makes your drive easy and perfect in all type of weather conditions. The five gear automatic transmission improves the fuel economy by enabling the driver to wring maximum thrust from its V6 engine.
