Toyota has unveiled the 2025 Toyota 4Runner, marking its first major redesign in 15 years. This update brings modern technology and features while retaining the vehicle's rugged nature.

The 2025 model is built on the TNGA-F architecture. It comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 278 horsepower and 378 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission pairs with it. There are three drive options: two-wheel drive, part-time four-wheel drive, and full-time four-wheel drive. For off-road enthusiasts, Toyota offers multiple features including a limited-slip differential for 2WD models and an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case for 4WD models. Additionally, it boasts an Active Traction Control (A-Trac) system and Stabilizer Bar Disconnect Mechanism, enhancing its off-road capabilities.

Toyota introduces a hybrid version named I-Force Max with more power—326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle includes specialized modes like Mud, Dirt, Sand for various terrains and offers quieter Crawl Control for challenging conditions.

Various trim levels are available including SR5, TRD Sport versions, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and the all-new Trailhunter designed for extreme off-roading. The Trailhunter features include 33-inch off-road tires, increased ride height, Old Man Emu shocks, an ARB-designed roof rack, high-mounted air intake, a 20-inch light bar, and steel skid plates.

Technology upgrades in the new model include an 8.0-inch touchscreen and a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster. Higher grade trims get a 14.0-inch touchscreen and 12.3-inch digital cluster. Connectivity options cover wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto among others.

Safety is enhanced with Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 package which incorporates several advanced features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control.

The starting price of the current model is $42,100 but it is expected that the revamped version will be pricier when it goes on sale later this year.
