Which 4Runner does Edmunds recommend?

Much of the 4Runner's value lies in its go-anywhere capability. As such, we think the TRD Off-Road Premium is the sweet spot in the lineup. It's not as hardcore (or expensive) as the TRD Pro, but its locking rear differential and available KDSS suspension help provide off-road capability that few SUVs can match. At the same time, the Premium part of its name indicates the many features that make this 4Runner trim a more livable vehicle.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

3.5 / 5

Rarely does a car get more popular with age, but that's exactly what's happening with the Toyota 4Runner. Despite entering its 10th year since it was completely redesigned — an eternity in car terms — the 4Runner sells exponentially better today than it did when minty fresh.

Perhaps that has to do with today's SUV-hungry buyers, but the 2019 4Runner is also a distinctive model. It is rugged and off-road capable, yet it's spacious and family-friendly. Sure, it's a bit rough around the edges and lacks many of the technology features you'll find in other SUVs, but there's an honesty to the 4Runner and a just-right goodness that keeps it relevant. It won't be for everyone, but it'll be exactly what a great many want.

So, if you think you might be in that "great many," here are the 4Runner's good bits. Its rugged trucklike construction, abundant ground clearance and legitimate off-road hardware give it go-anywhere credentials few SUVs (and especially crossovers) can match or surpass. At the same time, it has a large cabin with a big, boxy cargo area that'll make packing for a go-anywhere adventure (or just a trip to Grandma's for the holidays) that much easier. You also get a reputation for near bulletproof reliability and a driving experience that's not as cumbersome or trucklike as you'd expect for an off-road-oriented SUV.

However, there are significant drawbacks to consider. The 4Runner's advanced age means it lacks the accident-avoidance tech found on other Toyota vehicles. Its cabin design and materials are more utilitarian than those of similarly priced rivals, and infotainment features route through a tiny 6.1-inch touchscreen. Also, the 4Runner can't match the on-road refinement and fuel economy of more modern crossover SUVs.

These distinct highs and lows are part of that honesty we were talking about, though. The 4Runner is what it is. If you can live with the lows, or weigh them favorably against its distinct highs, the 4Runner should prove its popularity is no fad.

Trim levels & features

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV available in seven trim levels: SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, TRD Pro, Limited and Limited Nightshade. 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 trims are available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive and a two- or three-row seating configuration. 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 include 17-inch wheels, skid plates, foglights, a rearview camera, heated mirrors, roof rails, a windshield wiper de-icer, a power rear window, power front seats (eight-way driver, four-way passenger), 40/20/40-split reclining and folding second-row seats, cloth upholstery, 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, one USB port, and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, a media player interface, and HD and satellite radio.

Stepping up to TRD Off-Road adds a locking rear differential, slightly wider 17-inch wheels, Multi-Terrain Select off-road settings and a crawl control function. The interior wears additional TRD badging. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) feature is optional.

Premium variants of the SR5 and the TRD Off-Road get SofTex simulated leather upholstery, heated front seats, navigation, an upgraded 6.1-inch touchscreen and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A sunroof is optional.

Serious off-roaders should consider the TRD Pro, which starts with the TRD Off-Road Premium and adds revised front springs, Fox dampers with internal bypass rear remote reservoirs, matte black 17-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, a special front skid plate, a roof rack and special styling. It also gains automatic headlights, LED foglights, the sunroof and a 15-speaker JBL sound system.

The Limited model is more luxury-oriented and sacrifices off-road capability in the process. It gets a Torsen locking center differential (4WD models only), a full-time 4WD system, and a separate suspension system Toyota calls X-REAS that's designed to reduce body roll without hurting ride quality. The Limited also gains the TRD Pro's extra creature comfort features plus 20-inch wheels, special styling, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, keyless ignition and entry, heated and ventilated front seats, and leather seat upholstery. Power-deploying running boards are optional.

The new Limited Nightshade Edition just adds black exterior trim, replacing much of the Limited's standard silver and chrome accents.

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 Toyota 4Runner Limited (4.0L V6 | 5-speed automatic | 4WD).

Driving

3.5
The 4Runner accelerates with authority, with no ropey lag inherent in smaller engines with fuel-thrifty transmissions. This V6 is stout, and the five-speed keeps it in the power. The 4Runner is practically the last one standing for midsize 4x4 SUVs with real off-road capability and rugged sensibility.

Acceleration

3
The 4Runner exhibits surprisingly smooth, linear and powerful acceleration. Tall gearing and five speeds keep it in the powerband longer, unlike many of today's crossovers that shift to highest gears as quickly as possible. There's no insufferable lag, just ample thrust. It's not fast, but the V6 is surprisingly strong.

Braking

2.5
The brake pedal has a nebulous feel through two-thirds of the pedal travel, so drivers might need some time to achieve consistently smooth stops. Plenty of stopping power remains in the last third of the pedal travel. There's an abundance of nosedive in emergency stops.

Steering

3
Similar to the brakes, not a lot of real feel comes through the wheel, but the truck responds quickly and accurately. Steering effort is a bit heavy at higher speeds, but it's not fatiguing. At low speeds, it offers an appropriate amount of assist.

Handling

3
The 4Runner is surprisingly stable, even in tight, short turns. Body roll isn't excessive. Controlling it requires deliberate easing off of the throttle, braking, settling, then stabbing the throttle midcorner. The Limited-specific suspension system is at work here, trying its best to make the 4Runner feel somewhat luxurious.

Drivability

3.5
Smooth throttle delivery and seamless shifting make the 4Runner feel less like a truck and more like a crossover, but it's not quite either. The transmission's five available gears enable the driver to wring maximum thrust from the V6, but additional gears would improve fuel economy.

Off-road

5
The 4Runner excels off-road, but the Limited model is the least capable due to its 20-inch wheels and low-hanging front fascia. SR5 and TRD models have superior chin clearance and better-suited wheels and tires. The TRD Off-Road trim has a lockable rear differential, and it's the only one with available disconnecting stabilizer bars.

Comfort

3
The Toyota 4Runner offers a reasonable mix of comfort that's consistent with its overall mission and truck-based roots. It's not as cushy as today's typical crossovers, but few looking for this kind of rugged capability will take exception to that.

Seat comfort

3
The broad cushions and seatbacks offer a wide surface area for long-distance comfort, although lumbar support feels overly firm. With the optional third-row seating package, the second-row seats can slide and recline, but the third row is for kids only or short trips with average-size adults.

Ride comfort

3
The ride is not quite crossover-smooth, but it's not truck-brutish either. It bounces around on crummy pavement. But if you've driven trucks and can tolerate the kind of vibrations and jostling that can creep into a truck's ride, you'll find the 4Runner more than acceptable because it rides better than a pickup.

Noise & vibration

3
The isolation of road noise is good most of the time, but the squarish shape isn't particularly adept at quelling wind noise. It's not unreasonable or out of place in this type of vehicle, though.

Climate control

3
If you can get past controls that look as if they're from a Tonka set, they're large and easy to use. The climate system works swiftly and without delay. That's a big ask since the cabin is quite large, but front passengers get relief in two minutes or less. The Limited's seat-cooling fans are noisy.

Interior

3
The Limited's interior is a mishmash of materials. The dash has a piece of fake dark walnut capped by silver spray-painted plastic trim. The gauges look pulled from a mid-2000s Toyota Matrix. The design appears genuinely confused about whether it's a nice crossover or a rugged truck. But that sort of sums up the Limited.

Ease of use

3.5
The switch gear is big, logical and easy to use, but it looks ancient in 2019. It looked dated in 2009. The infotainment screen is laughably small, too.

Getting in/getting out

3
This off-road-biased 4x4 naturally comes with a higher step-up height relative to standard crossovers. Access to the front and rear is similar, but grab handles make it easier to gain leverage on entry. Shorter drivers will need to learn to spring up into the seats. The doors open nice and wide.

Driving position

3
The 4Runner offers an even higher, more commanding view than most crossovers. Drivers of all sizes will be able to find a good position, although adjustable pedals and more wheel telescoping would be appreciated.

Roominess

3
There's plenty of front head- and legroom for tall passengers, although the available sunroof consumes considerable headroom. The back has plenty of headroom but a bit less legroom. But the sliding and reclining rear seats should help even 6-foot-tall passengers find a comfy setting.

Visibility

3.5
It's surprisingly easy to see over the hood and toward the front corners, perhaps due to the simple and boxy design. There's good visibility out the back window, further enhanced by a backup camera. The rear quarters have the usual SUV blind spots, but a fairly level sightline out the sides offers good around-view visibility.

Quality

4.5
The 4Runner has tight gaps outside and an attractive interior. The premium vinyl upholstery in most trims should be easy to clean, but it won't fool anyone into thinking it's leather. Only the Limited gets the real stuff, which looks good and should hold up over the long haul.

Utility

3.5
This is why you buy the 4Runner: loads of room and a clean, squared-off shape to enhance cargo capacity and cabin usefulness, along with off-road build quality and capability. Load up the 4Runner with outdoor gear, pets, clothes, duffel bags and go. That's part of this SUV's primary appeal.

Small-item storage

3
For such a roomy cabin, there aren't many places to stash personal items. The door pockets can hold a slim water bottle and some smaller flat items. The center console is deep and wide enough for a cluster of wallets, phones, keys, small items and maybe an iPad Mini. You'll be hunting for stash spaces.

Cargo space

4
The rear seatbacks fold flat, and it's easy to pack the sizable cargo hold (88.8 cubic feet with seats down; 46.3 cubic feet with seats up) because of its squarish shape. Car campers will love it since it's easy to stretch out a couple of sleeping bags in the back. Available slide-out tray is a unique feature that aids loading.

Child safety seat accommodation

4
A leather flap backed with Velcro covers the LATCH anchors, but it's easy to pull back and access them. Three tethers are located behind each rear seat. The roomy second row can accommodate car seats in any of the three positions, even bulkier rear-facing models. The square door openings make for easy access.

Towing

3
Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, a useful figure that covers most boats and many small camping trailers. But the 4Runner doesn't offer a factory electric trailer brake controller. You'll have to go aftermarket to add that capability.

Technology

2.5
This 4Runner generation is now a decade old and its limited technology offerings show it. There's no safety tech available (other Toyotas come standard with them). And although the infotainment system's functionality is OK, it looks, feels and is dated. That could be a real deal-breaker given its competitors.

Audio & navigation

3
The navigation system is basic. Most smartphone-based nav apps are more powerful and sophisticated. The 6-inch display is small and there's no upgrade available. The JBL audio system is decent but lacks power and volume.

Smartphone integration

2.5
There's no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, just Toyota's basic Entune app suite. But the USB and Bluetooth audio/phone connections offer a suitable workaround to the clunky Entune interface.

Driver aids

2.5
There's a surprising lack of common driver aids such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Many of these come standard on other Toyotas or are offered on competitors.

Voice control

2.5
The rudimentary controls require very specific syntax and speech patterns. Most drivers will have better luck using the voice assistants on their phones.

Toyota 4Runner vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you're looking for a family-friendly midsize SUV that can go places off-road no crossover would dare travel, the Grand Cherokee is really your only other option. It has immense capability, but it's also more luxurious and refined than the 4Runner. In the 4Runner's favor are its larger interior — including the available third-row seat — and Toyota's reputation for high reliability.

Compare Toyota 4Runner & Jeep Grand Cherokee features

Toyota 4Runner vs. Toyota Sequoia

One ladder rung up from the Toyota truck-based SUV ladder is the Sequoia. It is a substantially larger vehicle than the 4Runner and has legitimate three-row seating. It would be a better option if towing and cargo space are more important than off-roading potential. Expect a heftier fuel bill.

Compare Toyota 4Runner & Toyota Sequoia features

Toyota 4Runner vs. Toyota Tacoma

If the 4Runner is an off-roading all-star among midsize SUVs, then the Tacoma is its pickup truck counterpart. More rugged than its competitors, the Tacoma counters its rough edges with true go-anywhere potential thanks to stout underpinnings, capable hardware, and a handful of off-roading tech toys.

2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro First Look

byDan Edmunds, Director, Vehicle Testing February 8th, 2018

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro won't look much different than it does today and it's not getting fitted with a new engine, but the detail changes Toyota has announced at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show stand to make this popular off-road SUV even more capable. Many on the sidelines saw this upgrade coming because the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro received it two years ago. The two vehicles share many front suspension components, so it was just a matter of time.

We're talking about shock absorbers, specifically the switch from Bilstein to Fox 2.5-inch internal-bypass shocks. The Bilsteins served the 4Runner well, but they didn't have the ability to crank up the damping force as the suspension stroked closer and closer to its limits. The new Fox shocks can do this readily, thanks to seven bypass zones in front (four in compression, three in rebound) and 11 bypass zones in the rear (seven in compression, four in rebound). The bypass feature should make a big difference because it's easier to tune such shocks to deliver smooth on-road comfort and contain large wheel motions associated with off-road use, something that's hard to reconcile when your shocks lack bypass functionality. Beyond that, the rear shocks are mounted upside down to reduce unsprung mass, and they're fitted with piggyback-style remote reservoirs that increase oil volume and improve heat dissipation.

Other aspects of the suspension on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro are similar to before. TRD-tuned coil springs support all four corners, and the front ones provide an inch of lift that levels the stance. That stance is still an inch wider than a standard 4Runner's thanks to the unique offset of the carryover 17-inch TRD black alloy wheels that are shod with P265/70R17 Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires. Like the Bilsteins they replace, the Fox shocks are a bit longer than the standard 4Runner gear, increasing front-wheel travel by 1 inch.

Up top you'll find a new expedition-style TRD roof rack, while underneath the familiar quarter-inch-thick skid plate is now adorned with red TRD lettering. Inside, the JBL premium audio system with integrated navigation is now standard instead of optional, and the cabin itself is accented with the familiar TRD logo in numerous places.

You may be wondering what the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro gets this year since it received its Fox shock transplant two years ago. There are two notable items. The first is the same standard upgrade to JBL premium audio and navigation that's been applied to the 4Runner TRD Pro. The second is a snorkel, something that's sure to perk up the die-hard off-roaders. It's a full factory option, too, which means the necessary fender hole will be put in before that panel is painted at the factory. To avoid damage, the pipe itself will be affixed to the truck after shipping. Toyota doesn't make any water-fording depth claims one way or the other because the automaker's always mum on that subject. It'll surely do the job in water, but this policy is why all of its snorkel photos depict silty desert conditions, another environment in which a snorkel can be a huge asset.

At this point, all three of Toyota's TRD Pro products — Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner — share the same suspension philosophy based on Fox internal-bypass shock absorbers. And this year, all will be offered in the same three colors: Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and 2019's TRD-exclusive color of the year, Voodoo Blue. Like the Tundra, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro won't begin arriving in showrooms until this fall, and pricing will remain a mystery until that date approaches.


More about the 2019 Toyota 4Runner

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV whose hardware, ground clearance and cargo storage make it perfect for off-road adventures. Like many Toyotas, the 4Runner comes in just a handful of trim levels. These trim levels have few, if any, options, making the selection process a little easier.

The four primary trims are the SR5, TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro and Limited. Upgrades largely consist of creature comforts, such as seat heating or navigation, and features that improve the vehicle's off-road capabilities. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the SR5 and the Limited, while four-wheel drive is optional for these trims and standard everywhere else. All versions come with a 4.0-liter V6 engine, five-speed automatic transmission and 5,000-pound tow rating.

The SR5 is equipped much as you would expect for an entry-level model, but it still comes with a touchscreen, power-adjustable seats and five 12-volt power outlets. It's also available with a third row that increases seat capacity to seven. The TRD Off-Road is worth the small increase in the asking price for its locking differential and access it provides to off-road-specific features, including Toyota's trick Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS). It also uses wider wheels and gains a crawl control function for slippery surfaces. Both the SR5 and the TRD Off-Road are available in Premium subtrims that add comfort features such as heated front seats, upgraded upholstery, power outside mirrors with heating, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The TRD Pro boasts an off-road-specific suspension that includes remote reservoir shocks, all-terrain tires and a front skid plate. One step above is the top-of-the-line Limited, which focuses primarily on luxury. It has 20-inch wheels, a leather interior, heated and ventilated seats, and a 15-speaker JBL stereo. Like the SR5, it has an available third row. The Limited costs nearly the same as the TRD Pro but lacks its off-road capability. And, since it's still truck-based, the Limited also lacks the on-road refinement of crossovers. Since the 4Runner's strength is in how it tackles the unpaved stuff, it's worth looking at the TRD trims instead.

While the 4Runner is priced competitively versus other midsize SUVs, it doesn't match the commuting comfort and technology features offered elsewhere. But as one of the few truck-based SUVs left on the market, the 4Runner satisfies off-road desires in a way that most SUVs can't. If that sounds appealing, let Edmunds help find the perfect 2019 Toyota 4Runner for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Toyota 4Runner?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
