This is the most hardcore TRD 4Runner of them all.
For the 2020 model year, the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro may look exactly like last year’s version. It’s still big, it’s still bad, and it’s still covered in skid plates. You still get bespoke 17-inch TRD Pro wheels wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler tires. But what has Toyota actually updated for this latest 4Runner TRD Pro? In this video, Tommy takes it out on the trails near Moab, Utah to find out. Specifically, he takes the 4Runner up Hell’s Revenge.
Underneath, little has changed in the 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro. As a change from the TRD Off-Road trim, you get Fox 2.5-inch piggyback shocks, as well as those new wheels and tires. Under the hood, you still get the tried and true 4.0-liter V6 engine with 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. That power is routed through an archaic, but dependable five-speed automatic transmission.
Unfortunately, we can’t share how the 4Runner drives compared to previous versions. We’re restricted from talking about driving impressions, but the video above will show you how it handles the trails. Hell’s Revenge is one of Moab’s classic slick rock trails, so it is certainly a good test of just how capable the 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is.
What else has changed?
One of the exterior changes is in the grille. Up front, Toyota added a sensor for automatic emergency braking as part of Toyota Safety Sense-P, which includes pedestrian detection. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro also brings an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa support.
Check out the video above to see how the 4Runner handles itself in Moab. Of course, we have the updated 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro over on TFLtruck, as well.
