Xplore Puts Hair on Toyota 4Runner’s Chest
text size: A- A+
"The new Toyota 4Runner is an absolutely amazing vehicle," states Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs. "On a recent trip to Ouray, Colorado, I witnessed firsthand how impressive it's capabilities are as it scrambled up a rocky shale trail I didn't even think was possible to climb."
As is the case with these custom creations, the 4Runner can be equipped in stages. Three stages are available, and they range from an upgraded interior and a few shiny bits to the full expedition-grade 4Runner with all the bells and whistles you need to go there and stay for a while that you see in the image.
Xplore Stage 1 Vehicle Packages feature Katzkin leather interiors as a builder level for a wide variety of options including dealer installed genuine Toyota and TRD Performance Parts and Accessories.
Stage 2 adds aluminum wheels, BF Goodrich off-road tires, Bilstein 5100 Series shocks, a polished stainless-steel cat-back exhaust and Xplore aluminum badges and floormats. Move to Stage 3, this adds quality ARB roof racks, roof-top tents, bumpers, Warn winches and IPF lighting; all available as mix-and-match accessories.
The hardcore version comes with a winch and front brush guard, a set of Method aluminum wheels, upgraded suspension components and tough-looking BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires.
"Our Xplore Toyotas are the real deal, not showroom pretenders," quotes Ron Flint, XPLORE Program Director. "These are incredibly capable vehicles that can transport you and your family to wonderful adventures in the great outdoors and get you home again".

I don't like this car. It doesn't feel that much of an offroader. Why don't they just stick to the Toyota Land Cruiser 100?
