Innovative Hybrid Power: Toyota’s Next-Gen 4Runner Arrives

Toyota just revealed a new 4Runner SUV after almost 15 years. It looks similar to the new Tacoma pickup. The 2025 4Runner will have a hybrid engine for the first time. It will also have new high-end trims called “Platinum” and “Trailhunter.”

Dave Christ, a Toyota vice president, said the new 4Runner is versatile and capable. Toyota has sold over 3 million 4Runners in 40 years. This sixth-generation model has new features but keeps the rugged style customers love.

Toyota’s “truck family” includes the Tacoma, Tundra, 4Runner, Land Cruiser, and Sequoia. The 4Runner is the last to be redesigned on Toyota’s global truck platform, which started in 2021.

Toyota will announce the price of the 2025 4Runner later. The 2024 model starts at around $41,000 and goes up to over $55,000.

The 4Runner used to have poor fuel efficiency, around 17 miles per gallon, before updates.This product has been available for purchase since 2010.

The new 4Runner’s miles per gallon will be revealed when it arrives in the fall. Other Toyota trucks and SUVs now have better fuel economy.

He mentioned the importance of having the right mix of products to reduce carbon emissions quickly.
