Ground Clearance

Ground clearance is the distance from the base of your vehicle (excluding tires) to the ground. Taller ground clearance makes it possible to traverse rough terrain without damaging the underside of your vehicle. The 2018 Toyota 4Runner has a ground clearance of 9.6 inches which is plenty high to adventure off the beaten path.

Max Towing Capacity

Adventuring can take all different forms – from a solo camping trip deep in the woods to a weekend at the lake with friends. The 2018 Toyota 4Runner can accommodate all kinds of adventure with a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. That should be enough to bring along a medium-sized boat or small RV.


*Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any weight ratings and follow all instructions in your owner’s manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle’s exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
