What is the best off-road Toyota?

I’m going to make some changes in the new year and I want to go off-roading more. I generally like Toyota. What’s the best Toyota to take off-road?

The best off-road Toyotas tend to come in the TRD trims—an upper-level option packed with features that give it an extra edge on and off the beaten path. Here is a breakdown of the best off-road Toyota TRD trims:
  • The
    2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road
    . The 4Runner already comes standard with off-road-ready features like 17-inch alloy wheels and underbody skid plates—but TRD trims add special driving modes and a locking rear differential to maximize traction on tough road surfaces. In the ultimate TRD Pro trim, you’ll also get a specially-tuned suspension, roof rack, and all-terrain tires.
  • The
    2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road
    . This mid-size pick-up gets an off-road makeover in its TRD trims, with features like a unique chrome bumper, lockable rear differential, shock absorbers, and multiple drive modes. The top-tier TRD Pro adds front skid plates, better breakover, approach, and departure angles, and an off-road camera system.
  • The
    2022 Toyota Rav4 TRD Off-Road
    . The RAV4 is already a worthy off-road vehicle in its own right; but upgrading to this specific trim level adds bonus features like a specially-tuned suspension and 18-inch all-terrain tires.
  • The 2022 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro. This massive SUV is available with skid plates, fox shocks, fog lights, and 18-inch alloy wheels—not to mention an optional power lift tailgate.
  • The
    2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
    . Toyota’s top truck takes you for the joyride of a lifetime with 33-inch all-terrain tires, skid plates and suspension dampers, a lockable rear differential, and multiple drive modes to increase off-road traction.
Toyota’s lineup of mid-size and full-size SUVs and trucks aren’t the only ones to come with off-road-ready TRD trim levels. The fuel-saving
and plucky Avalon also feature their own versions of the TRD trim.
