Thanks to Toyota's expansive indoor off-roading course at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams got to see the 2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Series in action conquering steep inclines, fording water obstacles and crawling rock. The true test of the special-package SUV won't come until we get behind the wheel and off the road ourselves, but in the meantime, Williams was able to take note of its new FJ Cruiser-style grille, aluminum skid plating underneath, heavy-duty shocks, aggressive-tread tires and TRD Pro badging.
The otherwise basic interior adds a unique shifter, floormats and contrast stitching. Watch the video above to see the 4Runner tackle the indoor off-road track at the auto show.
