Toyota 4Runner: Four-wheel drive system (part-time 4WD models)

Toyota 4Runner Owners Manual / When driving / Using other driving systems / Four-wheel drive system (part-time 4WD models)

Use the front-wheel drive control lever or switch to select the following transfer modes:

Type A


The four-wheel drive indicator comes on when H4, N or L4 mode is selected.

1. H2 (high speed position, two-wheel drive)

Use this for normal driving on dry hard-surfaced roads. This position gives greater economy, quietest ride and least wear.

2. H4 (high speed position, four-wheel drive)

Use this for driving only on tracks that permit the tires slide, like offroad, icy or snow-covered roads. This position provides greater traction than two-wheel drive.

3. N (neutral position)

No power is delivered to the wheels. The vehicle must be stopped.

4. L4 (low speed position, four-wheel drive)

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use “L4” for climbing or descending steep hills, off-road driving, and hard pulling in sand, mud or deep snow.

5. Four-wheel drive indicator

6. Low speed four-wheel drive indicator
