Toyota 4Runner 2025: Concept, Specs, Photos. As the vehicle is poised for new improvements, the 2025 Toyota 4Runner is being readied for a redesign. After all, the car has been around for quite some time, so newer modifications and enhancements are only natural. Will the changes, though, make the 2018 4Runner better – or at least cooler – than past models?
Performance and Powertrain
Toyota has changed the engine size throughout the SUV and truck lineup. They are generally downsizing, such as moving from a V8 to a V6. The 4Runner is now powered by a V6 engine with a capacity of 4.0 liters, however it will most likely be replaced by a four-cylinder engine.
The base model would have an inline four turbocharged unit with a capacity of 2.4 liters, which is the preferred option. This unit would be taken from the all-new (Lexus) NX 350, which has 275 horsepower and 317 Newton-meters of torque. This is basically capable of producing more torque and punch than the existing V6.
A hybrid power source is always a possibility. After all, Toyota has stated that all vehicles would include a hybrid unit by 2025. The Hybrid Max unit, with a capacity of 2.4 liters, might be an upgrade option for the performance orientation pick. This unit can produce 340 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque and is already installed in the Crown. This would be an excellent choice if the 4Runner were to compete with the Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler.
Concerning the 4Runner
There are numerous reasons why people adore 4Runner. This is a gorgeous SUV with excellent ‘bulletproof’ qualities. It’s sturdy. It has the ability. It has a pretty cool appearance. However, its fifth generation, which debuted in 2009, has grown outmoded and ‘worn’. With an automatic 5-speed transmission and only 20 mpg on the interstate, the 4Runner no longer appears tempting. It’s a good thing Toyota has decided to improve the 4Runner, and they’re going to do it soon.
Design and building
For its new body-on-frame SUVs and trucks, the business has switched to the TNGA-F (truck) platform. The new Sequoia, Lexus LX 600, Tundra, and Land Cruiser J300 all share the same platform. The Tacoma truck and 4Runner can employ the smaller (and more compact) version.
According to the standard timeline, the 4Runner was built in Japan. However, Toyota’s transition to the new platform has raised the question: Is it possible that Toyota would shift production to the United States? If so, will they shift some or all of the production?
The Revised Strategy
The 2025 Toyota 4Runner would be the sixth generation vehicle, however Toyota has been preoccupied with their own production strategy. The corporation has been working hard on their SUV and offroad truck lineups. The entire process started with Tundra 2022 and ended with Sequoia 2023. In principle, the 4Runner should be next, but the firm hasn’t specified a release date.
Toyota disclosed their improvements for the 2023 model, therefore the new 4Runner could arrive in 2023 (no time frame has been mentioned) as the 2025 year model. According to sources, Toyota has been preparing the Land Cruiser launch in the United States based on the design of the Land Cruiser Prado. If this occurs, it is probable that the 4Runner refresh will be delayed until 2025, which implies it will be released as the 2025 model.
The information about the 2025 Toyota 4Runner is sparse and scant, so we’ll have to wait for the company’s official reveal and announcement.
