Does the 2018 Toyota 4Runner offer All-Wheel Drive?

Here at Salinas Toyota, we want to make sure that you get everything out of your Toyota car, truck, or SUV you can. For some drivers, it might be premium interior features or styling details, but for another kind of driver, it’s all about all-terrain capabilities. While a number of other automakers and models may focus their SUV lineups towards interior features and styling, the Toyota 4Runner remains a great option for drivers looking to expand capability and off-road ready options.

Four-Wheel Drive options

For the 2018 model year, the Toyota 4Runner offers rear-wheel drive (RWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) drivetrain configurations across its lineup. While there is no all-wheel-drive (AWD) option, Toyota’s Part-Time 4WD systems offer an efficient and capable solution for 4Runner drivers. The first of three drivetrain options is a RWD setup with Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (LSD). This configuration is available on the SR5, SR5 Premium, and Limited trim levels. The next option is a Part-Time 4WD configuration with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC). This is an option at the SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD, Off-Road Premium, and the TRD Pro trim levels. The 2018 Toyota 4Runner Limited also offers an available Full-Time 4WD configuration with A-Trac and Torsen® limited-slip center differential with locking feature. Whether you’re driving the kids to soccer practice after school or you want to hit the off-road trails for some high-intensity driving, there is a 2018 4Runner that can handle it!
