2018 Toyota 4Runner Active Safety
When it comes to active safety features, the Toyota 4Runner is prepared—and that’s thanks to the Toyota Star Safety System™, a suite of six active safety features. These features keep you, your passengers, and the cars sharing the road a lot safer.
This active safety system includes:
- Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control: This prevents slippage when understeering occurs or when there’s a strong oversteer when sharply turning a corner.
- Traction Control: This prevents slipping of the wheels when the gas pedal has been depressed in an excessive manner, particularly when accelerating on slippery pavement or in poor weather conditions.
- Anti-lock Brake System: This system stops the wheels from locking when the brakes are applied in a forceful manner, or when pressing on the brakes while on a slippery surface.
- Electronic Brake-force Distribution: With help from the ABS system, brake force will be distributed evenly between the front and rear wheels with this technology.
2018 Toyota 4Runner Passive Safety Features
If you’re going to be doing a fair amount of off-roading in the Toyota 4Runner, it’s nice to know you’re backed by a set of passive safety features. This includes the Advanced Airbag System, which features driver and front passenger TAP (Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis) front seat-mounted side airbags. The Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags are an added safety benefit, as well.
If the Toyota 4Runner is struck from the side, the side-impact door beams located inside each door can absorb the impact and reduce the chances of another vehicle intruding into the cabin. The standard Tire Pressure Monitor System is another convenient feature, letting you know when the tire pressure may need an adjustment.
4Runner Driver Safety Tools
The available Safety Connect® system keeps you connected 24/7, no matter where you are. The Toyota call center is operated around the clock, so emergency roadside assistance is within reach if help is needed. This also includes the stolen vehicle locator system.
The standard integrated backup camera display, meanwhile, comes in handy. Displayed on the touchscreen in the center console, the backup camera lets you know how close the bumpers are from an object or other vehicle. The closer the object, the faster the beeping alert will be.
