Enhanced Performance

The body-on-frame 2025 4Runner will be assembled on Toyota’s durable TNGA-F global truck platform, which is shared by the Tacoma, Land Cruiser, Tundra, and Sequoia. In place of the former V6 engine will be a new and more efficient turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 278 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque. To enjoy a little more pep, the optional i-FORCE MAX hybrid powerplant, which pairs the 2.4-liter turbo with an electric motor, produces 326 hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most robust powertrain ever offered for the 4Runner. Both will be joined to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds (lower for some configurations).

The ’25 4Runner will have either rear-wheel drive, part-time four-wheel drive, or full-time four-wheel drive. Both RWD and 4WD models will get an automatic limited-slip differential, but the 4WD versions will also integrate an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case with high-and-low ranges and active traction control. The TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro, and Trailhunter trims will receive an electronic locking rear differential, while the Limited with the i-FORCE MAX will be eligible for a full-time 4WD system featuring a center locking differential, which is standard on the Platinum. This redesigned 4Runner will also offer the new Stabilizer Disconnect Mechanism (SDM), which disengages the stabilizer bar at the push of a button to give the front suspension increased articulation. The ’25 4Runner will also flaunt 32-degree approach and 24-degree departure angles and feature a new Multi-Terrain Select system that functions in 4WD-high and 4WD-low.

Design and Amenities

The renowned CALTY design team based in Michigan gets credit for the 2025 4Runner’s stylishly aggressive new look. Inspired by hardcore Baja desert racers, the newest 4Runner cuts a commanding shape with large tires and chiseled character lines that emphasize its dynamic capabilities. The cabin is brimming with modern comfort and convenience features, like a newly standard 8-inch touchscreen or an optional 14-inch touchscreen, plus wireless phone charging, a digital rearview mirror, a 14-speaker JBL audio system, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The ’25 4Runner will also qualify for Digital Key, allowing drivers to lock, unlock, and start the vehicle directly from a smartphone.

Safety and Driver-Assistive Tech

Every 2025 4Runner trim will be set up with the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite, which groups several advanced driver-assistance technologies like a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, lane tracing assist, road sign assist, automatic high beams, and proactive driving assist. Aside from those, a blind-spot monitor will be available along with rear cross-traffic alert and hill start control.

New Trailhunter and Platinum Additions

Two new trims are joining the 4Runner lineup for model year 2025: Trailhunter and Platinum. The Trailhunter is a dedicated overlanding rig outfitted with an artillery of off-road components, including Old Man Emu 2.5-inch forged shocks with rear external piggyback remote reservoirs, an ARB roof rack, 33-inch Toyo Open Country all-terrain tires (which give the 4Runner an additional 2 inches in the front and 1.5 inches in the rear), a low-profile high-mount air intake, and a complete set of underbody skid plates. Plus, the Trailhunter will show off a heritage-inspired grille with unique bronze TOYOTA lettering, an exclusive Everest green paint color, and an integrated 20-inch LED light bar alongside color-selectable RIGID LED fog lights. The more upscale Platinum trim, which sits above the Limited in the 4Runner’s nine-trim lineup, will come with special black exterior styling elements, heated second-row seats, a standard towing package, a head-up display, and automatic rain-sensing windshield wipers.
