Expert's Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

  • 2020 4Runner arrives
  • Rebate: Up to $1,750 off (2019)
  • Finance: No APR deals
  • Lease: From $309/mo. (2019, NY)

2020 Toyota 4Runner arrives:

The 2020 4Runner is in showrooms now. Though technically a carryover, the 2020 4Runner gets a revamped TRD Pro model and Android Auto. Special offers are not available on the 2020 model, but there are plenty on the outgoing 2019 4Runner.

The 2019 4Runner is still in showrooms now with an upgraded TRD Pro model that includes new Fox shocks, a new skid plate, a new roof rack, and LED fog lights. Our analysis shows the TRD Pro's price tag will go up by $3,340. Be prepared to find plenty of SR5 models in stock when you head to the dealership, but the Trail models are rare.

Also new in the 2019 4Runner lineup is the Nightshade Edition. This special model is based on the Limited trim but boasts a black theme that includes 20-inch black wheels, black window moldings, and even a black exhaust tip. At over $48,000 for the four-wheel-drive model, it'll be the most expensive 4Runner.

Toyota's offers vary by region and will expire November 4, 2019. Unless otherwise noted, all examples listed here are for Southern California.

Double-dipping discounts:

The Keep It Wild Discount continues and shows no signs of slowing. Amounts vary: SR5 and Trail models get $500 off, Premium models get $750, and the 4Runner Limited gets $1,000.

On top of these discounts, Toyota offers a $750 customer rebate, bringing the potential combined discount to $1,750.

There are no cash offers on the 2020 4Runner.

No APR offers:

There are no financing incentives on the 2019 or 2020 4Runner.

Lease from $309/mo.:

In New York, the 2019 4Runner SR5's 36-month lease remains at $309 per month with $3,999 due at signing (10,000 miles per year).

With an effective monthly cost of $420, the 4Runner is a great deal relative to its MSRP.

There are no promotional lease offers on the 2020 Toyota 4Runner.

2020 Toyota 4Runner: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - February 9, 2019

Model Preview

In 2020, the fifth-generation Toyota 4Runner will enter its 11th model year, making it one of the oldest SUVs on the market today. It received a 2014 freshening to keep it up to date, but this last-of-a-dying-breed off-road-ready rig is still dated. Though the 2020 4Runner will be a carryover model, its even more rugged TRD Pro trim will get a handful of updates.

Visually, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner will arrive with the same upright, hard-angled look and feel it’s had since 2014. This look may turn off crossover buyers, but old-school SUV buyers will appreciate its nod to a simpler era of truck-based SUVs. TRD Pro models will gain a new grille design to accommodate a radar sensor for the new-for-2020 safety equipment.

Inside, we expect the same truck-based cabin to carry on unchanged in the 2020 Toyota 4Runner. Like the exterior, crossover buyers will likely turn their noses up at this, while traditionalists will appreciate the simplicity.

2020 Toyota 4Runner

Though the bulk of the 2020 4Runner lineup’s cabin will remain the same, the TRD Model will get a few small tweaks inside. This will include a new 8-inch touchscreen in place of the old 6.1-inch unit and an upgraded infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility, two additional rear USB ports, and keyless entry and ignition.

Under its hood, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner will remain unchanged with its standard 4.0-liter V6 engine cranking out 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through a standard five-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels. Buyers can also opt for four-wheel drive. This powertrain will help the 2020 4Runner maintain its 5,000-pound towing capacity.

The Toyota 4Runner has long been behind the times in advanced safety equipment, but that will change in 2020. Toyota will equip the entire 2020 4Runner lineup with standard Toyota Safety Sense P nannies, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warnings, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and more. Unfortunately, we expect its structural issues, which resulted in a “Marginal” score in the driver-side small-overlap crash test, will carry on unchanged into 2020.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no concrete release date for the 2020 Toyota 4Runner, but we expect production to launch in August 2019 for an October 2019 on-sale date.

Pricing also remains a question mark, but with no changes coming, we expect the 2020 4Runner’s pricing to run about the same as the current model’s $35,705 to $47,295 MSRP range.

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner will compete with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, and the Toyota Highlander.
