What To Expect

After 15 long years, the Toyota 4Runner is finally getting a full redesign. The new model, unsurprisingly, shares a lot of design elements, trims, base powertrain, and features as the Tacoma. Here’s what we know about the 2025 Toyota 4Runner.

The exterior design of the 2025 Toyota 4Runner shares a lot of similar design elements as the new Tacoma. The design of the 4Runner varies wildly based on trim level, but the 4Runner has small triangular headlights, a small oval grille, a chunky front bumper, and a wide-open air intake. The side of the SUV has enormous fender flares, deep cutouts in the doors, and a window on the C-pillar that starts on the roof. At the back, the 4Runner retains its roll-down rear window, while the rest of the rear end includes circular taillights, a rugged rear bumper, and a small rear spoiler.

On the inside, the 2025 Toyota 4Runner enters the modern era with a far more present-day design. Unsurprisingly, the 4Runner’s cabin is similar in design to the Tacoma’s. The 4Runner features square air vents, a large central touchscreen that’s positioned at the front of the dash, chunky physical controls, a sturdy shift knob, and a thick steering wheel. Toyota will continue to offer the 2025 4Runner with an available third row, boosting seating capacity to seven people.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Engine & Specs

The 2025 Toyota 4Runner will come with a standard turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base turbo engine makes 278 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is available. Toyota will offer the 4Runner with a hybrid engine in the 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid, which is covered separately.

The SUV comes with all of the necessary equipment to tackle rugged terrain, including a locking rear differential, an off-road cruise control system, and an available system that disconnects the stabilizer bars. The 4Runner Hybrid is available in even more off-road-ready trims.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Safety

The 2025 Toyota 4Runner comes with the automaker’s Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite of advanced safety features as standard. Standard features with the suite include pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, automatic high-beam assist, and Proactive Driving Assist. Available safety features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and hill start assist control.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Price

Pricing for the 2025 Toyota 4Runner hasn’t been announced yet. We expect pricing for the SUV to increase compared to the current SUV that’s on sale which ranges from $41,600 to $56,565. With the Land Cruiser coming downstream to be priced at $57,345, we expect the 2025 4Runner to cost less than that model.

The 4Runner competes against other rugged SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler, Ford Bronco, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda Passport, Land Rover Defender, and Subaru Forester.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Release Date

The 2025 Toyota 4Runner will arrive at dealerships this fall. More information on the midsize SUV should become available within the next few months.
