2017 Toyota 4Runner Columbus IN
There was a time when all you needed was a vehicle that could take you from one place to another, but now you find yourself hauling firewood, planning long trips and taking the family to events. Maybe it’s a part of growing up, to need so much functionality from one vehicle, but it’s possibly the best part. You have things to do now, and the 2017 Toyota 4Runner is here in Columbus IN to help you do them. Here at Carver Toyota, we’re proud to offer this midsize SUV to families and outdoorsmen seeking utility.
What makes the 2017 Toyota 4Runner different? For this model year, it gains a TRD Off-Road trim to provide more stability and control when leaving the smooth, even terrain of roadways. You need more power, strength and endurance than most family-minded SUVs offer, and the 4Runner is here to deliver all its design elements seem to promise. The body-on-frame construction and 4-link rear axle and coil suspension provide a strong build and feeling of comfort for both on and off-road driving.
Just when you think things can’t get any better, Toyota adds a TRD Off-Road model to the lineup, but you don’t have to upgrade to enjoy this SUV. A 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine is standard in all trim levels, offering up a robust 278 pound-feet of torque and operated through a 5-speed transmission.
The Toyota 4Runner starts off with the SR5 trim, which offers amenities like A/C with rear seat vetns, a power-sliding liftgate window, a 6.1-inch touchscreen Entune system with Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, a navigation app, advanced voice recognition, HD radio, eight speakers and a rearview camera.
If a larger vehicle is what you’re looking for, there can be little doubt that space is a concern, the 4Runner seats up to seven passengers while still offering up 47.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row. Fold-flat seats open up the entire space behind the front seating for a maximum of 89.7 cubic feet.

Strong construction, plenty of power and a host of new technology features make the 2017 Toyota 4Runner a smart option for those looking for a capable model that's still fun to drive while running your regular errands. After all, you won't be towing the boat every day, right? Though with a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, it's almost a shame not to.
Aside from the new TRD Off-Road trim options, not much has changed for the 2017 Toyota 4Runner. The model continues to offer seating for up to seven, is available in two-wheel, part-time four-wheel or full-time, multi-mode four-wheel drive configurations and has a powerful 4.0-liter V6 under the hood.
