Toyota showed off at the annual fair in Texas the special edition 4Runner Venture Edition. Differences from conventional mid-size SUVs boil down to a huge roof rack, special Dunlop tires in combination with 17-inch wheels from the TRD factory tuning unit and decorative elements.

Toyota engineers secured an expeditionary roof rack made of heavy-duty steel with an area of ​​1.6 square meters and a height of 16.5 centimeters on the roof. If you do not pay attention to it, the external differences of the Venture Edition come down to the touches: wheels, rear mirror housings, door handles, Toyota logos and a black spoiler. All-weather rubber mats, as well as TRD seats with electric and heated, are responsible for the comfort in the cabin.

Technically, the 4Runner Venture Edition will repeat the all-terrain vehicle of a decade ago – under the hood, a 4.0-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 270 horsepower. The gearbox has no alternative – a 5-speed automatic. The off-road arsenal consists of a part-time all-wheel drive with a rigidly connected front axle and a two-stage lowering row in the transmission. In addition, Venture Edition is equipped with a Crawl Control function that allows you to “crawl” over rough terrain at a given speed.

Venture Edition-specific 4Runner model year electronics updates include an 8-inch entertainment system that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa, while active safety features include a lane control assistant, collision avoidance system, adaptive headlights and cruise -the control.

Prices for the 4Runner Venture Edition start at $ 44,285. For comparison, the usual rear-wheel drive 4Runner is estimated at 36 thousand dollars.
