10 Awesome Reasons To Buy The 2025 Toyota 4Runner

The 2025 Toyota 4Runner is a few months away from its official debut, we’re on the edge of our seats in anticipation. And why wouldn’t we be? The 4Runner has been a beloved SUV for ages. It’s hard to imagine a world without a mid-size crossover SUV that’s as good-looking, family-friendly, and fun to drive as the 4Runner. But, besides all the 4Runner’s accolades, the SUV hasn’t been redesigned since 2014. There’s a lot to expect from this Toyota legend. After a long and successful fifth-generation run, which came with its ups and downs, the 2025 entry marks the start of the sixth-generation 4Runner lineup. 

While we await the 2025 4Runner debut, we put together a top 10 list of the compelling reasons why the next-gen Toyota 4Runner is a must-have. As this is still a developing story, Toyota hasn’t yet opened up on the tech features, off-road capabilities, infotainment upgrades, or the powertrain. Other than the fact that the latest 4Runner will use the Tacoma as its base and that there is a possible hybrid 4Runner on the way (although this is largely speculative), we’re largely in the dark about its redesign details. Since this is a developing story, we will keep our list up-to-date with the 2025 4Runner updates. 

Read on to learn why you should buy the newest edition of the Toyota 4Runner 2025. Keep in mind that these are just some thoughts from the Flagship Drive team.

1. Cutting-Edge Redesign

Since Toyota hasn’t yet shared all the details on the new-gen 4Runner, everyone has their own opinion on what it will look like, and how it will drive and handle off-road driving. But one thing we all know for sure is that the 2025 Toyota 4Runner will redefine the SUV market with a modernized design. This new design marks a new chapter in the 4Runner’s timeline and the beginning of the sixth-generation lineup. Toyota enthusiasts should expect a fresh and contemporary look from the beloved 4Runner.

2. Toyota’s Best-Selling Legacy

As one of Toyota’s best-selling SUVs, the 4Runner has garnered a loyal following. With its last makeover in 2014, the 2025 model will continue this legacy by incorporating the latest technology and design elements. In other words, the new 4Runner will continue to be one of the brand’s best-selling SUVs, like the mid-size 2025 Toyota RAV4 sibling. 

3. Updated Cutting-Edge Technology

Along with a brand new face, the sixth-generation 4Runner will have a fresh set of some of the latest tech features, which should enhance the overall driving experience. It should follow the path of the Sequoia and the Tacoma when it comes to tech, which means getting ready for a bigger infotainment screen and more standard safety features across the lineup. From entertainment to safety, the 2025 model will keep you connected and secure on the road.

4. 2025 Toyota 4Runner Hybrid Powertrain Possibility

There’s excitement about the potential inclusion of a hybrid powertrain in the 2025 Toyota 4Runner, possibly drawing from the new Tacoma’s options. This move aligns with Toyota’s commitment to environmental sustainability while maintaining the 4Runner’s renowned performance. Gear Patrol is also on board with the hybrid idea. If the hybrid 4Runner materializes, expect better fuel economy and a decent electric-only range. We’re betting on anything between 30 and 50 miles. On the other hand, expect good 2WD and non-hybrid options too. 

5. New-for-2024 Tacoma Influence

Building on the success of the 2024 Tacoma pickup truck, the 2025 4Runner is expected to inherit its base. Having Tacoma as a base is a solid foundation is a great move. It should pave the way for a reliable and capable SUV. And come on folks, this is a Toyota we’re talking about.

6. The 2024 Toyota 4Runner Will Have A Baby Sequoia Styling

Enthusiasts can hope for a sleek design reminiscent of a smaller Sequoia. If the Tacoma is a “baby Tundra,” the 2025 4Runner might be the “baby Sequoia,” combining style and functionality. Combined with the Tacoma-inspired design, expect an SUV that offers the best of both small and large crossovers. 

7. Bronco and Wrangler Competition

Positioned to rival the Bronco and Wrangler, the 2025 4Runner might feature a removable roof, offering an open-air driving experience. This competition-driven design could appeal to those seeking adventure and versatility.

8. Lower Price Point Options

With options for 2WD and a non-hybrid version, the 2025 4Runner is expected to hit a lower price point, making it a more affordable alternative to the 2024 Land Cruiser. This strategic move aims to attract a wide range of buyers.

9. Tacoma-Inspired Styling and Options

Drawing inspiration from the 2024 Tacoma, the 2025 4Runner is likely to showcase similar styling cues and standard options. This connection with Tacoma ensures a fresh and cohesive design language across Toyota’s lineup.

10. Competitive Pricing

Toyota offers some of the best prices on the SUV market, particularly the RAV4, 4Runner, and the Vanguard. It won’t be so different with the latest 4Runner.  With a standard MSRP estimated at around $43,000, the 2025 Toyota 4Runner will offer competitive pricing. It should be an attractive option for SUV enthusiasts. With a price range of up to $59,000 depending on trim and options, there’s a 4Runner configuration to suit various preferences and budgets.

We’ll keep you updated on the 4Runner’s powertrain, fuel economy, and more.
