Use of off-road systems for the Toyota 4Runner
One of the most capable vehicles in the highly diverse Toyota lineup is the 2014 Toyota 4Runner near Bolingbrook, IL that is available at Toyota of Naperville. Over that last few weeks, we have talked a lot about the Toyota 4Runner, especially the upcoming TRD Pro Series, that is factory-built to be one of the world’s best off-road vehicles without the need for aftermarket accessories. A major part of the appeal of this vehicles is easy use of off-road systems for the Toyota 4Runner. In every piece we’ve written about the 4Runner, we have made allusions to its outstanding off-road capability, but never really explained how it works.

If you have been keeping up with the posts on the Toyota of Naperville Blog this week, you would have noticed our post on Monday about the Toyota FT-1 concept vehicle and its inclusion in the Gran Turismo franchise video game franchise. As a quick aside, the Gran Turismo franchise is important to cars like the FT-1 because of its place as a highly accurate driving simulator. As far the Toyota FT-1 goes, we have only seen the car in is bright red paint job, that makes it look like it’s going 70 mph while standing still. This was impressive on several fronts. That is until we saw the graphite-colored FT-1 version that was placed on display at Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival in California. Read the rest of this entry »

2014 Toyota 4Runner near Bolingbrook, IL
The 2014 Toyota 4Runner near Bolingbrook, IL that is available at Toyota of Naperville is one of the last remaining SUVs on the market that still uses body-on-frame construction. This method of building an SUV was and is still used because it gives the vehicle an inherent heartier constitution and is better suited for tackling things like muddy trails and other such maladies that occur where the sidewalk ends. The 2014 4Runner is built for off-road use, but still retains enough composure on the pavement to serve as a faithful daily driver. There have been a few changes made to the 2014 Toyota 4Runner near Bolingbrook, IL that further blurs the lines between the truck’s two main methods of travel.
FT-1 in Gran Turismo 6
Looking back over some previous Toyota of Naperville Blog posts, we came across our love letter to the FT-1 Toyota Concept car. This led us to bouncing around the internet trying to find out if there was any new information about the vehicle. Then when we landed on one of our favorite stops, Autoblog.com, we saw they had posted a video of the FT-1 in Gran Turismo 6. This renewed our hopes of being able to drive the FT-1, albeit virtually. Seeing a useable version of the FT-1 in Gran Turismo 6 is particularly exciting because other automakers have used the game to tease releases of some of their high performance vehicles.
