2025 Toyota 4-Runner.
There is also talk about a compact more rugged new SUV model, inspired by the new 2024 Land Cruiser. (Also arriving at dealers in early spring). But of course, there will also be a new generation Toyota 4-Runner.
No info is available yet but it’s not hard to guess it could be related to the new 2024 Tacoma. And that will mean a new look, but nothing too modern. And nothing too retro either since that’s the job of the new Land Cruiser. It also means, no more V6. It will be replaced by the new 2.4 Liter i-Force Max Hybrid powertrain we see in the 2024 Tacoma. With a 2.4 Liter Turbo standard.
The current generation came out in 2009, almost 15 years ago. And yet over 121,000 of them were sold last year. It is so popular and hard to get that some slightly used models are sold for more than new ones.
I can see why Toyota is in no hurry to replace it. But 15 years is 15 years… Plus, they will soon not manufacture any V6 engines anymore and everything must at least have a Hybrid option these days.
As I said, this will be a very busy year for Toyota. And that’s without including their upcoming EV models…
