Unveiling the Next Generation Adventure: The 2025 Toyota 4Runner

Finally! The 2025 4Runner will arrive at Toyota dealerships soon with a complete redesign and a new Trailhunter trim that’s more off-road ready than ever.

The Toyota 4Runner is joining the Tundra, Tacoma, and the Sequioa on the TNGA-F platform.

A New Look on the Outside

The latest Toyota 4Runner has a strong resemblance to the outgoing model but with a more commanding presence. A bisected grille has a body-colored bar to split it into two sections, and the headlights have a new look, complete with LED accent lighting. Some models get a hood scoop and air vents on the fenders to make it more aerodynamic.
Around the back, the tailgate sits upright just like before, and all trims have a rooftop spoiler. The roll-down rear window remains intact for easy access to the cargo area.

A Glow Up for the Interior

As soon as you take a seat in the new Toyota 4Runner, you’ll notice the changes. It’s modern and stylish. There are big grab handles that will come in handy if you go off-roading, and there are some unique colors and materials available. Take the new Trailhunter for example. It comes with green upholstery on the seats and stone-like trim elements. The TRD Pro is also fun, with a camouflage pattern on the seats and red accents.

New Tech Features for a New Toyota 4Runner

With all the changes for the 2025 4Runner, it’s no surprise that it has a host of new tech features. The base trim still has an 8-inch touchscreen, but it runs the newest version of Toyota’s infotainment system.

Where things get really good is the trims that offer the 14-inch touchscreen or make it standard. This screen is huge and brings you all your apps and contacts through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. A 12.3-inch digital display screen for the driver is also available, and with up to 5 USB ports and a wireless charging pad, everyone in the 4Runner can plug in and stay charged.

Improved Driver Assist Technology

It’s not unusual to have driver-assist features in new vehicles, but the technology just keeps getting better. The latest Toyota 4Runner takes advantage of improving technology and has safety features with even more functionality. The adaptive cruise control system now works at all speeds, and it works with a lane-keep assist system that makes highway driving less stressful. There are new systems, too. Toyota’s Proactive Driving Assist system will provide small steering corrections and braking assistance when needed, depending on the road conditions.

Smaller Engine, but Bigger Power

The new base engine for the 4Runner may be smaller than before, but it’s stronger. The 12.4-liter turbo four-cylinder pumps out 278 horsepower and gets 317 pound-feet of torque. This is great news, but the bigger news is the availability of the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain. It uses the turbo four-cylinder with the addition of an electric motor. This pumps horsepower up to 326 and increases torque to 464 pound-feet.
