2010 SR5?

Post by Ty on Tue Jul 09, 2013 1:28 am

I've got a buddy looking at a 2010 SR5 and it is listed as RWD. I know RWD stands for rear wheel drive, my question is would it be rear wheel drive as in 4wd just not awd or real wheel drive as in 2wd? This may be a stupid question but without seeing it I didn't have an answer for him.

SR5 is a base model these days, I'd believe a 2wd SR5.

It makes me cry and question the parentage of whoever bought that thing off the lot, but I believe it.

RWD as in 2WD. If it was 4WD it would say. And unless I'm mistaken, I think all runners starting in 2001 have full time 4WD (AWD) or they are 2WD (RWD).

I think the only 4runners with full-time 4wd are some select 4th gen models. I would be surprised if they made a 2wd 2010 model. You can find 2wd 3rd and 4th gens.

My 2001 has full time 4WD and my moms 2005 has it, and I don't think hers can even shift into 2WD, but I don't know about other later years. From looking on edmunds earlier you can get 2WD 2010/5th gens, which is weird.

She should be able to shift into 2wd.  Take a look and you should find a button on the t-case shifter (activates awd mode) and one left of the steering wheel (locks t-case diff).  I've got an 01 as well and they came with a multimode t-case.  It allows for awd and traditional 4wd through an actuated diff in the t-case.  It can be set into awd mode (t-case diff unlocked) and left there.  The beauty of this system is when the actuator breaks you can get stuck in awd and not be able to go to traditional 4wd (ask Kevin how I know).

I know on the 4th gens that the V8 Runners are AWD. If you get the V6, you get the traditional 2WD with the option of 4HI and 4LO.
