Toyota 4Runner Safety Features

December 2nd, 2015 by

Safety features help to make the 2016 Toyota 4Runner so popular, as it comes equipped with antilock disk brakes, stability and traction control, air bags on the front seats, side curtain airbags and active front head restraint. All four-wheel 4Runners have an off-road traction control system known as A-Trac that keeps you in control on slippery roads by redirecting engine torque to the wheels that have traction.

A rearview camera is standard, and front and rear parking sensors are available on the Toyota 4Runner Limited, which also comes with Safety Connect, a system provides automatic collision notification, stolen-vehicle locator and emergency assistance.

In government crash tests, the 4Runner earned four out of a possible five stars overall, including four stars for total frontal-impact safety and five stars for total side-impact safety. The 4Runner’s seat/head restraint design was rated “Good” for whiplash protection in rear-impact crashes.

According to the Toyota Motor Company, the 4Runner stands above the rest partly due to its body-on-frame construction—not many SUV’s are built this way. This type of construction allows the 4Runner to handle the most rugged terrain while providing a comfortable, smooth road on city roadways. Toyota asserts, “Even after thousands of miles of treacherous, weather-beaten, harsh trails, 90% of 4Runners sold in the last ten years are still on the road.”
