Which 4Runner does Edmunds recommend

Because the value of the 4Runner lies predominantly in its off-road capabilities, we recommend the TRD Off-Road Premium. This trim gives access to important hardware including the locking rear differential and KDSS, the latter of which improves all areas of the 4Runner's skill set. The Premium part of that name means it has comfort features, including heated front seats, easy-clean vinyl upholstery, heated power outside mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Edmunds' Expert Review

overall rating

3.5 / 5

The Toyota 4Runner is an SUV in the traditional sense, with a body-on-frame construction and a solid rear axle like a pickup truck. It is one of the last SUVs built this way, giving it the rugged capability that made this type of vehicle attractive in the first place.

While serviceable as a daily driver, the 4Runner is home on adverse terrain. Off-road prowess comes from its high ground clearance and available hardware such as a locking rear differential, low-range gearing and Toyota's trick Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS). The latter consists of special stabilizer bars that automatically adjust to allow for greater wheel travel (and therefore traction) in off-road driving situations.

An available third-row expands seating capacity to seven at the expense of some cargo space and versatility. But really, don't get a 4Runner if all you need is a mall crawler or family taxi. In that case, there are better choices, including Toyota's Highlander. But the 4Runner is one of the few vehicles left from the traditional SUV mold, and that's something to appreciate if you need a vehicle for frequent off-road weekend excursions.

Notably, we picked the 2018 Toyota 4Runner as one of Edmunds' Best Midsize SUVs for this year.

trim levels & features

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV available in six trim levels: SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, TRD Pro and Limited. All share the same 4.0-liter V6 (270 horsepower, 278 pound-feet of torque), five-speed automatic transmission and 5,000-pound tow rating. SR5 and Limited models are available in rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive configurations and two- or three-row seating configurations. The remaining trim levels are 4WD-only and seat five. A low-range transfer case comes on 4WD versions of the SR5, TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trim levels.

The SR5 is the base model but it's not bare-bones. Standard features includes skid plates, foglights, a rearview camera, a power liftgate (includes a power rear window), 17-inch wheels, keyless entry, power-adjustable front seats, 40/20/40-split reclining and folding second-row seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 120-volt power outlet in the rear cargo area. The standard infotainment system boasts a 6.1-inch touchscreen, eight speakers, a USB port and satellite radio.

Stepping up to TRD Off-Road adds a locking rear differential, 17-inch wheels that are 0.5 inch wider than the SR5's, and a crawl control function. The interior wears additional TRD badging, and the overhead console gains switches for controlling off-road settings. The KDSS feature is optional.

Premium variants of the SR5 and TRD Off-Road get power-adjustable and heated outside mirrors, simulated leather upholstery, heated front seats, navigation, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Serious off-roaders should consider the TRD Pro, which starts with the TRD Off-Road Premium and adds revised front springs, Bilstein dampers with rear remote reservoirs, special all-terrain tires and a front skid plate.

Limited models top the 4Runner range and are more luxury oriented. These models get a Torsen locking center differential (4x4 models only), a separate suspension system Toyota calls X-REAS that's designed to reduce roll without adversely affecting ride quality, plus a host of features to make it better suited to on-pavement use: 20-inch wheels, a sunroof, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, leather seat upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a 15-speaker JBL audio system. Power-deploying running boards are optional.

trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions, although trim levels share many aspects. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2014 Toyota 4Runner Trail (4.0L V6 | 5-speed automatic | 4WD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current 4Runner has received very few changes beyond minor adjustments to feature content and trim levels. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's 4Runner.

driving

3.5
The 4Runner Trail's off-road nature dominates the way it performs. The traditional body-on-frame construction gives it ruggedness and clearance but adds weight that results in modest cornering, braking and acceleration limits. The off-road performance that 4Runner buyers seek is excellent.

acceleration

3
The 4.0-liter V6 gets the 4Runner up to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds, which translates to easy freeway merging and decent climbing power up long grades. It's not the most powerful engine in the class, but it does the job.

braking

2.5
The 4Runner's brakes have plenty of stopping power, especially in terms of initial bite. But this brings with it a notable amount of nosedive. Panic stops require a few extra feet compared to more modern crossovers.

steering

3
The steering is a bit slow to respond but predictable, and it offers reasonable feel in corners. Straight-ahead driving, on the other hand, feels murky, and we sometimes found it necessary to make sizable corrections in response to road imperfections and side winds.

handling

3
It's stable in corners but doesn't like to be rushed due to its weight and high center of gravity. The optional KDSS auto-disconnect stabilizer bars are larger and repel body lean better than the standard setup.

drivability

3.5
Throttle response is smooth and progressive, and the five-speed automatic transmission shifts seamlessly. It would be better with another gear to choose from.

comfort

3
A 4Runner provides a reasonable mix of comfort that isn't out of line with its overall mission or its truck-based roots. Not as comfy as the typical crossover, but no one looking for this kind of rugged capability should be surprised by that.

seat comfort

3
The seats have a decent shape and range of adjustment, but the padding could stand to be more generous and the seat bottoms are short. Overall comfort is good but stops well short of what we'd call excellent.

ride comfort

2.5
The ride isn't firm, but there is a fair bit of trucklike shake and body movement. Instead of crashing over bumps, our 4Runner tended to jostle about lazily in response to road imperfections.

noise & vibration

3
There's good isolation of road noise most of the time, but the squarish shape isn't particularly adept at quelling wind noise.

interior

3.5
Nicely laid-out dash and instrument panel. The large cargo hold is quite functional, and the seating area is sufficiently roomy. Easy to climb in and out if you can deal with the step-up height.

ease of use

3.5
Switchgear is logical and easy to use, but the Entune navigation screen is small. The overhead off-road controls are a good use of space.

getting in/getting out

3
An extra 3 inches of step-up height relative to crossovers goes with the territory with an off-road-biased SUV such as this. Front and rear access are similar; the optional side step covers both. The doors open nice and wide.

roominess

3
There's plenty of front head- and legroom for tall folks, though we should note the Trail does not have a sunroof. The rear seats offer similar headroom. There a bit less legroom back there, but 6-footers still fit.

visibility

3
Easy to see over the hood and find the front corners. Rear visibility is surprisingly good straight out the back and is further enhanced by a backup camera, but the rear quarters have the usual SUV blind spots.

quality

4.5
The new 4Runner has tight gaps outside and an attractive interior. The fabric seats are grippy, easy to clean and good-looking.

utility

4
Great cargo area versatility especially with the optional sliding cargo tray, plus a variety of storage options in the cabin.

small-item storage

4
Plenty of little nooks in dash plus a decent console bin, glovebox and door pockets.

cargo space

4
The rear seatbacks fold flat, and it's easy to pack the sizable cargo hold because of its squarish shape. One staffer actually tossed a sleeping bag back there and spent the night.

Dont think about it....just buy it
Nate 4Runner, 11/28/2017
I am the type of consumer that over researches everything and then agonizes for weeks over what to do. Even after I purchase something I then end up researching even more to confirm that my decision was a good one. My lease was coming to an end of what I called my "rental car". That lease was a 2016 Malibu. No complaints about that car...I needed a cheap lease for two years and it did the job. I have had my eyes on trucks throughout the whole lease. So I have been researching mid-size and full size trucks along with some SUV's. If it is on the market, I test drove it. I fell in love with the stance and ride height of the Dodge Ram, of all things. However, I have absolutely no need for a pickup truck of that size. I have a family of 5 and we bring a bunch of stuff with us. I want it weather protected. The crossover three rows are practical but none of them gave me the feeling that Ram gave me. Out of curiosity, I went to look at Tundras. I knew they were out of my price range and again, I didn't need a truck. That is when I stumbled upon the 4Runners. I have always liked these SUV's but never drove one. Grabbed a salesman and off we went. Then all the stars aligned! This was it! That feeling of the stance of a Dodge Ram, way more spacious than a Tacoma or Canyon, the reliability of a Toyota, room for family, a closed rear that can haul everything protected, and that super hard to resist rear window!!!! Me being me, I had to sleep on this and do more research. So the endless Youtubing began. There is no competition for this vehicle unless you go super high end off road or Wrangler. After a bad Mopar experience I will never go Wrangler....plus to get one with 4 doors and a hard top you are getting up there in price. When you youtube 4runners all you see for the most part is 4x4 off roading with lots of mods. This is cool and all but not something that was selling me. I live in Florida. I am not going up any hills, it does not snow and, even if I had a 4x4, I certainly wouldn't push a brand new 40k vehicle to its limits. Fact is 2x4 or 4x4 drive the same on the road, have the same stance and height and the 2x4 version gets 1mpg better gas. Not to mention the less stuff to break argument. So..... I purchased myself a 2018 SR5 Premium (fake leather, navigation and sunroof for premium). The truck had 18 miles on it and it was the perfect color combo that I wanted. The premium/non-premium was a last minute decision. The cloth feels great compared to the "softex" fake leather. However, I have kids. Kids spill stuff. So, I got the softex. On with the review..... I. love. this. truck! We took a road trip to Miami a day after I bought it. The wife and all three kids were super comfortable and loved riding up higher than usual. I dont know what it is but there is just something nice about the way this rides compared to a crossover. It feels like a tank...but like a really comfortable tank! One thing that I thought would bother me ended up not at all.... that is the dated technology. I had Carplay on my Malibu and was dissapointed this didn' come with. Let me tell you that I much prefer not having it. Here is the thing about carplay.... You have to be hardwired in and it completely takes over everything. All of the sudden the Apple Music station comes on every time you end a call or end a trip. It gets confused managing bluetooth and usb at the same time. The technology on carplay isnt worked out yet. Thats the beauty of the 4runners tech..... it is simple and has been boiled down to stuff that works. Bluetooth when you want it and only when you want it! A CD Player!!!!!! HD Radio! Knobs! BIG enormous knobs! The touch screen is small and old school but it processes instantly. No waiting for the latest and greatest of apps to load. I even like the lack of auto climate control...especially dual zone... I could never get any of my vehicles to dial in just right automatically. The big bonus of all this is that the lack of tech means there is so much that WILL NOT BREAK! And for Florida winters....open up all the windows including the sunroof and rear window and you basically have a open air vehicle. Such and amazing driving experience on the highway. Around town I love this thing even more. You tower over cars without have a super wide or long vehicle. You can see everything. The extent of my off roading will be dirt roads, grass or gravel. I took it down one dirt road and it felt great. I play on keeping this truck for a long time and hopefully the honeymoon never ends with this vehicle. It just feels amazing to drive and solidly built. Don't let the old technology prevent you from owning one of these. Half that stuff you will not use past the show room. And it will be buggy and it will break. 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, depending on your needs, this truck is magic.
LOVE MY 2018 4Runner TRD PRO
Sharon Machicek, 11/17/2017
I've seen so many mixed reviews on this vehicle, so it was hard for me to finally bite the bullet and order the vehicle sight unseen or before test driving it. Four grueling months later it finally arrives and.........WOW....just WOW!! This truck is awesome, words just can't explain it. I love the simplicity of this vehicle. The big knobs and actual buttons to push is a breath of fresh air. I came from a 2013 Ford Edge Sport that had all the bells & whistles you could want, but most of the time it was a headache. I found myself not even utilizing half the stuff it was able to do. So believe me when I say, I love the simplicity of this truck. A lot of people complain about the 4 runners 6.1 inch screen being to small, but I say it's more than sufficient, and that's me coming from a 8 inch screen in my Edge. The screens picture clarity and response to touch is so much better than what I had in my Ford, which was sooooo slowwwww. The visibility out of this thing is great, love the huge back window. A lot of people bit*h about the headlights, but I think there great. Yeah....their not HIDs or LEDs, who cares. What I care about is the amount of light they put out and that I can see at night. The fog lights put out so much light and they reach way into the ditch so I can look out for deer. The ride is very plush & smooth and the seats are so comfortable & durable, love the soft-tex material. My Edge had 22's so I felt every little bump. The 4 runners back seat is very comfortable too, plus the back seats recline for even more comfort. Not a lot of wind/road noise in the cabin, which surprised me because of the all terrain tires and/or sheer size of the truck. I actually had more wind/road noise in my Edge. I even love the sound the doors make when you close them. It's a very soft, muffled sound if that makes any sense. It's the little thinks like that, that make me love this vehicle so much more than any other vehicle I have owned, which is six by the way. I love the sliding rear cargo deck, I've already used it several times. It really comes in handy and the hidden storage compartment is pretty cool too. This is my first Toyota and I'm definitely looking forward to the Toyota reliability. With that said, I do miss 1 thing that my Edge had that my 4 runner does not. And that is the keyless entry. I miss being able to just grab the door and have it unlock automatically. It will take me sometime to get use to pulling keys out of my purse again. Overall I love this vehicle, best quality vehicle I've ever driven hands down. You have to love it for what it is.....a truck.....and a good truck at that. :)
2018 4Runner Still Great After All These Years
Mark Brundage, 11/7/2017
I recently went SUV shopping for my wife and I, and she really surprised me. I had done some pre=shopping on my own as her work schedule isn't really car shopping friendly and had previewed many of the new crop of crossover cute utes (CRV, Rava4, Mazda CX-5) thinking that was what she's like. Car like handling, AWD and good gas mileage. What's not to like, so after we look at and test drive the above we are at the Toyota dealer and she's just not feeling any of the vehicles we've driven and says to the salesman and I , "I want something more substantial, tougher" and points to a 4Runner. So we take it for a ride and she loves it. Well, I guess after almost 32 years of marriage she can still surprise me occasionally. So we make a deal, and the dealer doesn't have one on the lot with the equipment we want (TRD Off Roar Premium) and they make a trade and get one from another dealer that is in transit from the port in NYC and have it shipped to them. We've had the truck for about three weeks now and have about 2000 mixed miles on it. The truck rides great on bumps, tracks and handles well even in a torrential downpour on the highway, has great visibility day or night. With the TRD Off Road options including terrain assist and electronic locking rear differential I know is going to make it awesome in the snow this winter, but I will provide an update to this review once I've substantiated that assumption. Now there are a few cons, it catches the wind a little bit going down the highway, and the fuel economy would be better with a 6 or 8 speed transmission, but overall Toyota has done an amazing job of tuning a body on frame SUV to ride and handle far better than it really should, have added a bunch of nice near luxury features such as Bluetooth phone integration, airbags galore, crawl control (look it up, it's pretty cool), computer controlled integration of the stability control, ABS and traction control systems to provide ridiculously strong off road capabilities, LED taillights and projector beam headlights that work really well without diluting all the things that made the 4Runner a super reliable, rugged go almost anywhere truck. If you live in NYC (I grew up there) is the 4Runner the best choice for you, well maybe not the TRD Off Road or PRO versions, but if you live in rural Maine (which I do now) and need to get through Maine winters or want to go camping, or hiking or boating where others can't, then it gives up little while offering a lot. Check it out.
4Runner XP Edition (off road tires)
Peter from Florida, 11/30/2017
I traded in a 2010 Ford FX2 F-150 for the 2018 4Runner and love the vehicle. Fit and finish are excellent. When I slam the door, I don't see the metal waver like I did with the F-150. I felt like the Ford, while being a great truck, was flimsy in many respects. This 4Runner feels solid as a rock. So far, I'm truly enjoying the vehicle, and even with the off road tires, it rides smoothly and road noise is hardly as bad as my old truck. For me, a great upgrade and a nice compromise between owning a pickup and an SUV. If the wife doesn't want you driving a truck anymore, get one of these. You'll still be up high and have the flexibly and covered cargo area of an SUV...

Toyota 4Runner vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

You can have a reasonable amount of fun on dirt roads with even the affordable 4Runner TRD Off-Road. In contrast, you'll have to upgrade to the Grand Cherokee's Trailhawk trim if you plan to venture off the pavement. That said, the Grand Cherokee is more luxurious and comfortable on-road. You also get your choice of several V8s if the Grand Cherokee's standard V6 doesn't light your fire. We awarded the Grand Cherokee a rating of 3.5 in its most recent evaluation.

Toyota 4Runner vs. Honda Pilot

The Toyota 4Runner is all about braving the wild frontier. The Honda Pilot is more at home picking up the kids from school or traveling cross-country in supreme comfort. For most SUV buyers, that means the Pilot is going to be a more logical choice. We rated the Pilot at four stars out of five among other large three-row crossovers.

Compare Toyota 4Runner & Honda Pilot features

Toyota 4Runner vs. Toyota Highlander

The 4Runner trounces the Highlander in terms of off-road performance, but the Highlander has the edge in the realms of comfort and utility. The Highlander is also a newer vehicle, so its interior doesn't look quite as dated as the 4Runner's.

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner is stylish SUV that can suit any business venture or weekend excursion. On the road, the drivetrain on the 4Runner shines. The ruggedt 4Runner boasts a bigger grill, curves, and bold face that is ready for adventure. It keeps the standard brisk acceleration with a 4.0-Liter, 270 Horsepower V6 engine mated to a smooth-shifting 5-speed automatic transmission. 4Runner appears in several trims, including the new TRD Pro edition. Maximum towing capacity for the 4Runner is 4,700 pounds. Keeping true to its rugged heritage, it has an upright windshield, long roofline and nearly vertical liftgate, which contributes to a sturdy appearance. With bulging fenders and 9.6 inches of ground clearance in the 4-wheel-drive version, the 4Runner shows off its rugged personality. Access to the rear cargo is through a single-piece liftgate with a unique power rear window. For transporting your gear, it can hold an impressive 88.8 cubic feet of cargo when the rear seats are down. Once inside, you will find that the cabin of the 4Runner interior is both functional and inviting. Drivers will welcome the updated interior with clear instrumentation with large buttons, luxurious leathers, and rotary knobs for climate and audio controls. There's a soundtrack to every adventure. You won't miss a beat with 4Runner's standard Entune Audio Plus system: a 6.1-in high-resolution touch-screen display, AM/FM CD player with MP3/WMA playback capability, auxiliary audio jack and USB port with iPod connectivity.

FAQs

Is the Toyota 4Runner a good car?

The 2018 4Runner is one of the only midsize SUVs with serious off-road credentials. Indeed, models with the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) are some of the most capable SUVs you can buy for when the pavement ends. You'll like that Toyota offers it in a variety of configurations to suit your needs and budget, too. On the downside, the 4Runner has a somewhat rough ride quality, and the standard V6 engine isn't particularly fuel-efficient. Many of the latest driver safety aids aren't available on the 4Runner either.

How can I get a Toyota 4Runner deal?

Edmunds can help you find a great local price on a Toyota 4Runner. See 2018 Toyota 4Runner deals and incentives in your area.

Does the Toyota 4Runner have good MPG?

Just as there's only one engine available, the sole transmission for the 4Runner is a five-speed automatic. Rear-wheel-drive models earn an EPA rating of 18 mpg combined (17 city/21 highway), with the four-wheel-drive variants penalized 1 mpg on the highway rating. The overall rating is 2 mpg less than that of the 4WD Wrangler Unlimited with the eight-speed auto. It's also thirstier than comparable versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and other three-row SUVs, including the Toyota Highlander.

Does the Toyota 4Runner have good resale value?

If you're ready to buy, you're probably wondering about the Toyota 4Runner's resale value. How much will a 2018 Toyota 4Runner be worth in two or five years — or whenever you decide to sell? Check out the Edmunds True Cost to Own (TCO) calculator. It includes projected annual depreciation over the first five years of ownership based on Edmunds' robust market transaction data.
