What To Expect

Toyota has officially introduced a fully redesigned 4Runner for the 2025 model year after 15 long years. For the first time in the 4Runner’s nameplate, the rugged SUV will be available with a hybrid powertrain that it’s borrowing from the Tacoma Hybrid. Here’s what we know about the upcoming 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid.

The 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid shares the same overall design as the 2025 Toyota 4Runner and the current Toyota Tacoma that’s on sale. The 4Runner Hybrid is offered in rugged and premium trim levels that give it a slightly different design compared to the non-hybrid model. The front end of the 4Runner Hybrid features triangular headlights, a small oval grille, a wide front air intake, and a rugged front bumper. Depending on the trim level, the 4Runner’s front end features oversized black fenders, a snorkel, and a ridged hood. At the back, the 4Runner Hybrid has a roll-down rear window, a small rear spoiler, an upright liftgate, and a rugged rear bumper.

The interior design of the 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid shares a lot of the same qualities as the Tacoma Hybrid. The SUV features a rugged interior design with rectangular air vents, a tiered dashboard, chunky controls, a thick steering wheel, and a sizeable gear shifter. The 4Runner Hybrid’s central touchscreen is positioned in front of the dash and sits to the right of the SUV’s push-button starter. While the gas-powered 4Runner is available with a third row, Toyota hasn’t confirmed if the Highlander Hybrid will be available with seating for up to seven.

When it comes to tech features, we believe the 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid will come with an eight-inch touchscreen as standard and be available with a 14-inch touchscreen. A seven-inch digital instrument cluster should be standard, while a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster will be available. Available features should include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, multiple USB-C ports, a Digital Key system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid Engine & Specs

Unlike the gas-powered 2025 Toyota 4Runner, the 4Runner Hybrid will come with a standard hybrid powertrain that consists of a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. Power is rated at up to 326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. A 1.87-kWh battery pack is included. The gas-powered 2025 Toyota 4Runner comes with the same turbo-four engine. With the hybrid engine, the 4Runner can tow up to 6,000 pounds.

The 4Runner’s most rugged trims, which include the TRD Pro, TRD Off-Road, and Trailhunter, come with a hybrid powertrain. These models will come with updated suspension, all-terrain tires, heavy-duty skid plates, special exterior lighting, a limited-slip differential, four-wheel drive, off-road cruise control, a stabilizer bar disconnect system, and a multi-terrain monitor system.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid Safety

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

2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid Price

Toyota hasn’t officially announced pricing for the 2025 4Runner Hybrid. We expect pricing to be higher than the gas-powered 4Runner Hybrid, which should be pricier than the current 4Runner's MSRP which starts at $41,600.

Competitors in the midsize SUV segment include the Ford Bronco, Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid Release Date

Toyota has confirmed that the 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid will arrive at dealerships this fall. More information on the electrified version of the midsize SUV should become available within the next few months.
