2019 Toyota 4Runner: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

As we near the 2019 model year, all the new models are starting to come into focus. Today, we learn a bit more about the 2019 4Runner, which we expect to remain mostly a carryover model, save for an updated TRD Pro model.

Visually, the majority of the 4Runner lineup will remain unchanged inside and out. The TRD Pro model, however, will have a few changes here and there. The exterior changes will include a new roof rack, red “TRD Pro” lettering on the front skid plate, new 17-inch matte-black TRD alloy wheels, and a 1-inch-wider rear track.

Inside, the 4Runner TRD Pro will gain a few extra goodies. These include a new Toyota Entune JBL Audio system with integrated navigation and App Suite.

Toyota 4Runner

We expect the under-hood bits on the 4Runner to remain the same. This would mean the 2019 4Runner would come with a 4.0-liter V6 that produces 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. We expect the shifting duties to remain the responsibility of a five-speed automatic transmission.

Safety is a bit of a sore spot for the current 4Runner, as it only receives a “Marginal” rating in the small-overlap test. It also has “Poor” rated headlights. This results in it not even coming close to receiving an IIHS Top Safety Pick award. This should all remain the same in 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

Toyota expects the 2019 4Runner to arrive at dealers this fall.

Official pricing is due to be released sometime in July. For reference, the current model ranges from $35,605 to $45,955 (destination fees included).

Finding competitors to the 4Runner takes a little finesse, as there are no true direct rivals. That said, buyers may also consider the Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Toyota Highlander.
