Toyota 4Runner Overview

Powertrain Performance Specs

Each trim level of the 2017 4Runner is powered by a 4.0L V6 that develops a capable 270 hp and 278 lb-ft, which it delivers via a five-speed automatic transmission. If you opt for the SR5 or Limited trim level, then you’ll have the option of rear-wheel drive (4×2) or four-wheel drive (4×4). Most 4×4 models also come with a low-range transfer case. Fuel economy estimates come in between an EPA-estimated 20 and 21 mpg highway, depending on which version you get, while all models get an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city. When properly equipped, the 4Runner can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
