All About Toyota 4X4
The first US 4X4 vehicle was built by the Four Wheel Drive auto company (FWD) dated back to 1911. In later years, other global auto giants like, Ford, Nissan and Chevrolet came in picture and started producing 4X4 Trucks
and SUVs in large scale.
Toyota 4X4 was introduced much later and basically in the late seventies. Prior to this period, all of the Toyota Trucks
were 2 wheel drive. In 1979, the first 4X4 truck was launched in the Toyota lineup which was modeled after the legendary Land Cruiser. With new features like a solid front axel, leaf springs on all wheels and modified suspension and body lifts, the Toyota 4X4
trucks were a huge hit with off-roaders. The model was also awarded "Toughest Truck of the Year" by 4x4 and Off-Road Vehicles that year. These fourth generation Toyota trucks were developed with the objective to deliver more comfort to users and further to retain high horsepower. The debutant was the sport truck version of Toyota trucks known as the SR5 followed by more variants from the Toyota Trucks
and SUV family.
Over four decades, the Toyota 4X4
has created a ‘class of its own’ with gradual inclusion of new styles and features and by refining performance standards and driveability to stay in the competition. Years of experiments and technological innovations have helped the Toyota 4X4
lineups to get a complete makeover and a different product line as well.
Equipped with powerful features like IFS, turbochargers, Xtracab, V-6 engines, fuel injection system and latest transmission options, the Toyota 4X4 are now available in both pickup and compact Car Model
versions. The most recognized Car Models are Tundra, Tacoma, Rav4, SR5, FJ Cruiser, Sequoia Limited, etc. The line-ups, by and large, are regular cab, LB 5/6 AT, SR5 Double Cab, SR5 Crew Max and Limited Crew Max. Priced between $18225 and $26115, these 4X4 Variants
are packed with best-in-the-class features like adequate highway performance, stronger wheels and power steering, larger cargo space and other optional packages for interiors and exteriors.
