Toyota 4Runner Performance Features

Performance Features

The 2022 Toyota Highlander is powered by a 3.5-liter engine block, rated at 295 horsepower. Capable of following the Atkinson cycle, the V-6 powertrain develops 263 pound-feet of torque. This normally aspirated, six-cylinder powerplant makes a great combination with the eight-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission. A 5,000-pound towing capacity surely highlights the impressive capabilities of this standard powerhouse. Displacing 4.0 L, the 2022 Toyota 4Runner’s V-6 engine whips out 270 hp. Utilizing the Dual VVT-i design, this naturally aspirated powertrain cranks out 278 lb-ft. You can tow up to 5,000 lb with this premium Toyota SUV. Featuring the Sequential Shift Mode, a five-speed automatic gearbox propels the 4Runner. You can select a part-time or full-time 4WD system for this versatile vehicle. A locking rear differential and Torsen limited-slip differential elevate the model’s off-road capabilities to a higher level. Clearing the ground by 9.6 inches, the 2022 4Runner is more than ready for rugged landscapes. You can also deploy the Crawl Control and Multi-Terrain Select technology on the trails. By contrast, the 2022 Highlander’s Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD is mainly tuned for handling pavement. Nevertheless, you can still access the M-TS technology for superb off-road performance on this model.
