Toyota takes its commitment to off-roading very seriously. With three capable off-road vehicles in their lineup including the Tacoma, Tundra and the ever impressive 4Runner. When not one but three vehicles in a single brand are able to jump off the pavement and move along the less beaten path, you can count on engineering and innovation that you can trust. We could dedicate an entire series to these vehicles, each with its own strengths and style but the Toyota 4Runner is currently holding our hearts.
