2022 4Runner TRD Sport Features 

This is the first year that the Toyota 4Runner will be available with a TRD Sport trim grade, joining the Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup truck. For the upcoming model year, the 2022 4Runner TRD Sport will get an upgrade for on-road driving comfort by using the Cross-Linked Relative Absorber System. Also called X-REAS, helps to limit the vehicle’s movement on the pitch and yaw axes.  

The 4Runner has used the same powertrain for the last several years, which is not changing for the 2022 model year. A naturally aspirated 4.0-liter, V-6 engine will be under the hood that is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. It will make 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The TRD Sport model can be equipped with two- or four-wheel-drive drive trains. Versions using two-wheel-drive will have the Toyota Automatic Limited Slip Differential for better off-road traction; models using the part-time four-wheel-drive system will also be equipped with Active Traction Control and a two-speed transfer case. 

Available Technology 

Every 2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport will be equipped with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that will work with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications as well as being compatible with Amazon Alexa.
