2024 Toyota 4Runner Changes
The 2024 Toyota 4Runner underwent a few small changes for the new model year, starting with a pair of new exterior colors, Terra and Underground. On top of this, the lineup gains a new trim level: TRD Sport. This new trim tuned the typically off-road-ready 4Runner for the street, with an upgraded chassis that includes the Cross-Linked Relative Absorber System (X-REAS) suspension system and sportier styling.
Choosing Your 2024 Toyota 4Runner
The 2024 4Runner is available in seven trim levels to meet a wide range of buyer wants and needs. These trims include the SR5, TRD Sport, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. Starting prices for the 4Runner range from $40,455 for the SR5 trim to $54,920 for the TRD Pro model.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Engine Options
The standard 2024 Toyota 4Runner continues with the time-tested 4.0-liter V6 engine that pumps 270 horsepower (hp) and 278 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque through an equally dated five-speed automatic transmission.
The Toyota 4Runner comes standard with rear-wheel drive but offers optional four-wheel drive for those planning to head off-road in it or handle not-so-ideal weather conditions. TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro models come standard with part-time four-wheel drive.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Fuel Economy
The 2024 Toyota 4Runner delivers fuel economy ratings of 16 miles per gallon (mpg) city, 19 highway, and 17 combined. The fuel economy ratings are the same in two- or four-wheel-drive models.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Towing Capacity
The 2024 Toyota 4Runner has a moderate towing capacity of 5,000 pounds across the entire lineup. Remain mindful that it also has a 500-pound tongue-weight capacity.
Payload—the total amount of weight you can carry inside the vehicle (passengers and cargo)--checks in at 1,495 pounds in the Limited trim with four-wheel drive to 1,700 pounds in the two-wheel-drive SR5 model.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Dimensions & Cargo Capacity
The 2024 4Runner is 190.2 to 191.3 inches long, depending on the trim level, 75.8 inches wide, and rides atop a 109.8-inch wheelbase. It offers 9 inches of ground clearance in two-wheel-drive models and an impressive 9.6 inches with four-wheel drive.
For those planning to take on serious off-road adventures, its approach angle is 30 degrees with two-wheel drive and 38 degrees with four-wheel drive, while its departure angle across the lineup is 26 degrees.
Inside, this midsize SUV is not the best family-hauling machine, as it offers only 32.9 inches of second-row legroom. If you opt for the available third row to haul up to seven passengers, that tiny seat has just 29.3 inches of legroom. So, teenagers and adults may feel the squeeze in either rear row.
In its five-passenger setup, the 4Runner has great cargo space for its size, offering up to 47.2 cubic feet with the second-row seats up and 88.8 with them folded. With the optional third-row seats up, the cargo room tumbles to just 9 cubic feet. The third row also gobbles up room with its folded, leaving just 46.3 cubes of room behind the second row.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Safety
All 2024 Toyota 4Runners are equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). This suite of advanced safety and driver-assist features includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and more. It also comes standard with blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2024 4Runner earns four stars from NHTSA. Its most alarming areas in NHTSA testing include just a three-star rating in the passenger-side frontal collision and rollover-resistance tests.
The IIHS has not yet tested the 2024 4Runner for safety, but the 2023 model missed receiving Top Safety Pick honors due to “Marginal” scores in the small-overlap front driver-side crash test, among other issues. With no big changes to the 2024 4Runner, we expect the same scores.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Technology
The SR5, TRD Sport, and TRD Off-Road models come standard with the base infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and an eight-speaker stereo.
The SR5 Premium and TRD Off-Road Premium trims add an eight-speaker premium audio system with Sirius XM and navigation.
Heading into the range-topping Limited and TRD Pro models, the 2024 Toyota 4Runner gains a JBL audio system with 15 speakers with a subwoofer.
