Arrow 6th Gen Released by Forbes - ope!

Copy of the article that was momentarily posted by Forbes and promptly taken down. If anyone wants to read up before the launch tonight!




The 4Runner has been a staple of the Toyota lineup for more than four decades and the new 2025 model completes the brand’s complete revamp of its body-on-frame lineup. Starting with the Tundra full-size pickup in 2022, Toyota has leveraged its TNGA-F architecture to launch redesigned versions of the Sequoia, Tacoma, Land Cruiser and Lexus GX and LX. The sixth-generation 2025 4Runner rounds out the family at least for North America.



The original 4Runner debuted in 1983 based off the HiLux pickup. Like most pickup-derived SUVs of the time it featured a removable rear top section allowing it to be used like a half-open pickup with no rear wall and an extra row of seats. That architecture disappeared with the second-generation and starting with the third-generation 4Runner, it began sharing its platform with the Land Cruiser Prado. That relationship continues to this day and expands to all of Toyota’s body-on-frame models. The latest Land Cruiser and Lexus GX are effectively the Prado that is sold in other markets.



Despite having debuted way back in 2009, the current fifth-generation 4Runner remains a surprisingly strong seller. Over the years most of the mainstream branded, midsize, off-road oriented two-row SUVs have fallen by the wayside such as the Nissan XTerra and Chevy S-10 Blazer, leaving the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco as the main competition to the 4Runner.



Like prior 4Runners, the new model also shares a lot with the latest Tacoma midsize pickup including the powertrains. Toyota’s increasingly ubiquitous 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will be under the hood of all sixth-generation 4Runners. The standard i-Force version delivers 278-hp and lb-ft of torque. The hybrid i-Force Max adds an electric motor and 1.87-kWh nickel-metal hydride battery for a total of 326-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Towing capability grows from 5,000-lbs to 6,000-lbs.





Both options come with the same eight-speed automatic transmission found in the Tacoma and Land Cruiser. As before, customers can choose a rear-wheel-drive, part-time four-wheel-drive or full-time four-wheel-drive system. Both 4WD systems have a two-speed transfer case and Toyota’s active traction control system to aid in sending torque to the wheels with the most grip. All variants get an automatic limited slip differential.



The TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro and the new Trailhunter version also get an electronic locking rear differential. The Platinum trim also gets a locking center differential that is optional on the Limited. New to the 4Runner is a front stabilizer bar disconnect that allows for improved articulation of the front wheels over rough terrain.



The wheelbase of the new model has grown by 2.4-inches and overall length has grown by 4.7-inches compared to the old model. The longer overhangs mean the approach and departure angles are slightly degraded for the new 4Runner at 32 and 24 degrees respectively compared to 33 and 26 degrees for the four-wheel-drive fifth-gen. However, the nearly 20-inch shorter wheelbase compared to the Tacoma should give the 4Runner a big advantage over the pickup in breakover angle.



Like Toyota’s other off-roaders and most competitors launched in recent years, the 4Runner gets a Multi-Terrain Select system that allows the driver to choose modes that are optimized for the type of surfaces being driven on. The modes which include Mud, Dirt and Sand adjust parameters like the slip thresholds for traction control and work in both 4WD-high and low ranges. The Crawl control manages speed on rough surfaces so the driver can focus on steering around obstacles on the trail.



The design shares a strong family resemblance to the new Tacoma but also has callbacks to early generations. The rear top may not be removable anymore, but the rear quarter windows do wrap into the roof again. The tailgate glass can also be lowered into the gate as has been the case in prior generations allowing for longer objects like surfboards to hang out the back.



The interior also shares a lot with the new Tacoma including the choice of a standard 8-inch infotainment screen or the optional 14-inch display. Both use Toyota’s latest infotainment software which is much improved from prior generations. Wireless support is included for both Apple Carplay and Android Auto and a Qi wireless charging pad is also available in addition to the standard USB-C ports. Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 driver assist package comes standard as it does on all other newly designed models. This includes blindspot monitoring, radar adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, road sign recognition, and proactive driving assist.



In addition to all of the usual trims found on Toyota trucks and SUVs, the 4Runner also offers the new Trailhunter trim. The Trailhunter includes ARB's Old Man Emu (OME) 2.5-inch forged shocks with remote reservoirs on the rear axle and a custom ARB roof rack. 33-inch Toyo Open Country all-terrain tires provide the grip along with two-inches of added front ground clearance and 1.5-inches in the rear.



Rock rails and high strength steel skid plates come standard on the Trailhunter along with a bronze grille and integrated 20-inch LED light bar. Toyota has also built in a 2400W inverter to power gear during overlanding adventures.

The 2025 4Runner goes on sale in fall 2024.

i'm sure this will sell really well, but i'm not in love with the styling or the fact that it got bigger. how can this compete in the same space as the new LC?

Thanks for sharing this.

I agree, it’ll surely sell well, but it’s definitely not for me. Makes me even more glad to have scored a 2022.

With the shared styling and platform, I imagine this will be built in Mexico. That alone is a deal breaker for me with any vehicle.

What are they thinking with a Sequoia and 4Runner being dangerously close to each other in size and style...

Well unless it grows on me which I doubt I can’t see myself ever buying this generation.
4.7 inches longer, the wheelbase has gone outside of Toyotas sweet spot for some reason. Most likely a couple of inches wider, overall too big for a 4Runner. I really like the looks of the LC250 but this looks like a 4th gen that AI modernized. Too futuristic looking for me.
Very disappointed

Agreed. If I were buying one or the other, it would be the new LC.

Gen 5 T4R > LC250 > Gen 6 T4R

Between the Sequoia, 4Runner, and the Land Cruiser (not to mention the GX) it feels like Toyota is crowding the market with similar-ish vehicles.

The exterior looks better than I was expecting, but I was shocked to see that they increased the dimensions. The interior is what I was expecting...except for what appears to be some atrocious leg room in the second row. I can't imagine having my two teenagers sit back there for an extended amount of time.

Oh well...makes me even happier I picked up my TRD Pro last month.

The front seats are pushed all the way back. Look at where the console stops... like 6" ahead of the seatback. The legroom will very likely be comparable to the current model.

Goodness this thing is ugly. Looks like a cross between a 4th gen and a 2nd gen.



Been waiting (forever) for the sixth gen but doubtful I would buy one of these.

Thanks for the photos of the new 6th gen!

Size is a certainly a surprise however I think the overall styling beats out LC and GX and I really like the looks. I like the new beefier stance and most important for me, it still looks like a 4runner! Lots more masculine than 5th gen -not sure if that is good or bad.

6th gen could have been horrible and embarrassing to all the prior T4R owners and I am so glad it looks this good. It will be interesting to follow on the forum how the quality holds up and wishing the 6th gen the best!

Not a fan at all of the styling. It looks super generic...almost like a 4th gen model.

I think overall the appearance is an improvement to the too boxy 5th gen. It looks much more aerodynamic. The only thing I don't like is the black fender flares. Looks like the Limited comes with color keyed fender flares. That looks much nicer. I can see the other trims going that way in later model years.

I like the boxy style of Toyota BOF SUVs. If I can't have a land cruiser I want the 4R to resemble one. One narrow trails and tight Central American streets/roads you don't want a wide vehicle. The 70 series is perfection for these places.
