Despite the 4Runner’s incredible sales numbers, it’s now time to make some changes. The current generation is not new and feels tired in many ways. The interior is old, the transmission is lacking gears, and the engine is too thirsty. The 2024 Toyota 4Runner will be undergoing a major redesign. The new model will be available in the second quarter of next year.
The vehicle will feature many innovations. The new generation will feature a new platform as well as a completely new exterior design. We are confident that the new 4Runner will feature a better cabin, but we also know it will be more powerful. In all aspects, the new model will be more modern.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Redesign
After so many years, the 2024 Toyota 4Runner will undergo a complete redesign. We believe that the new generation will ride on the TNGAF platform. Details are still not available. This platform is already in use in new SUVs like the Sequoia and Land Cruiser 300. This new generation will feature many improvements, including a lower center of gravity and a revised suspension setup to make the vehicle more comfortable on roads.
The 4Runner will remain a versatile off-road vehicle, as we are confident. The new generation will have a rugged layout, a proper suspension setup, and lots of off-road features like a locking differential, a two-speed transmission, and a hill-descent controller. Expect big all-terrain tires, proper approach, and departure angles, and crawl control as well as a four-wheel-drive.
It is quite impressive in terms of exterior design. In 2024, we expect a modern Toyota 4Runner. The rugged exterior will remain. We expect a new design, drawing inspiration from its larger siblings. Expect exclusive styling details.
In terms of dimensions, the 2024 Toyota 4Runner will remain the same. Despite its small wheelbase, we don’t expect any significant changes to the Toyota 4Runner in 2024. The overhangs remain the same as they were before. The company does not want to make any compromises on the off-road potential to gain more interior space.
It is important to keep the passenger space in line with the current model. The front seats, like the second row, will be spacious and comfortable. However, the third row will be slightly smaller and more adult-friendly. Still, the cargo area should have respectable numbers.
We found a completely new cabin design. The current dashboard is out of date. The new dashboard will have a better aesthetic and use finer materials. The dash will also feature new tech and convenience features, including the new infotainment system and connectivity systems.
There will be major changes under the hood. The outgoing model had a 4.0-liter V6 which was bulletproof but low in efficiency. The new model will feature a smaller engine. Sources are speculative about the turbo-four’s 2.4-liter displacement. It produces 275 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. A hybrid powertrain, which is based on the turbo four and produces around 350 horsepower, has been proposed.
A new transmission will be available for the Toyota 4Runner 2024. Although the 5-speed automatic transmission is timeless, it does not have the best crawl mode. The new model will have an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive will be available on the base models. AWD systems with part-time or full-time capabilities will be offered.
Toyota has been updating its SUV and off-road truck lineups. The all-new Toyota Tundra 2022 was the first step in that process. The all-new 2023 Sequoia continued the process. The 4Runner is expected to follow. Toyota has yet to confirm a launch date. Toyota has announced updates for the model year 2023. The new 4Runner will arrive in 2023, as a vehicle with the 2024 model year.
According to reports, Toyota is preparing for an American launch of a new Land Cruiser based on Prado Land Cruisers. Toyota may postpone the 4Runner redesign until 2024 to make room for the 2025 model year.
2024 Toyota 4Runner Release Date and Price
