Solid Foundation, Superior Ride

Starting with its foundational elements, the 2025 4Runner is built on Toyota’s new TNGA-F global truck platform, which it shares with siblings like the Tacoma and Tundra. This platform features a high-strength, boxed steel-ladder frame, multi-link coil rear, and double-wishbone front suspension.

This robust base enhances the vehicle’s structural integrity and improves ride comfort, making it a smooth operator on highways and a beast on rugged terrains. The 4Runner now boasts a towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds, thanks to the powerful i-FORCE MAX powertrain, making it an ideal choice for towing boats or campers on family trips.

Power and Efficiency: i-FORCE MAX Hybrid Powertrain

The 2025 model introduces two turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines. The standard i-FORCE engine offers 278 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque.

For those seeking more power, the i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain, available or standard on higher trims, produces a hefty 326 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, promising the most potent combination ever seen in a 4Runner.

Designed for the Trail and the Family

Toyota has significantly upgraded the 4Runner’s off-road capabilities. A notable addition is the Stabilizer Bar Disconnect Mechanism, which increases suspension articulation at the push of a button, enhancing the vehicle’s ability to maintain tire contact on uneven trails.

The 4Runner offers up to 32-degree approach and 24-degree departure angles, along with an array of off-road aids like the Multi-Terrain Select system and CRAWL Control for navigating challenging landscapes.

For families, the 4Runner does not skimp on comfort and convenience. The interior design has been thoughtfully crafted to include second-row tumble seats that maximize cargo space and a new 14-inch touchscreen that displays Toyota’s latest Audio Multimedia system.

Families will appreciate the available third-row seating and the ease of access provided by the power rear window and liftgate, making it simple to load gear, groceries, or even a couple of tired kids.

What do you think of the rear wraparound window that Toyota kept?
