2019 Toyota 4Runner – A Major Upgrade

When the Toyota 4Runner was firstly debuted back in 1984, it was seen as just another pickup truck with a rear covered with fiberglass. After so many years, Toyota is still clearly betting on this model and we are about to see the new 2019 Toyota 4Runner.


We believe the 2019 Toyota 4Runner is going to continue with its amazing off-road ability. Even though there aren’t many details available yet about this amazing pickup, make sure to check out below what we think the 2019 Toyota 4Runner will bring.

2019 Toyota 4Runner Exterior


You can expect to see major changes on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner exterior. One of the things that will probably get more attention on the new 2019 Toyota 4Runner is the new and progressive front grille that we believe will be a bit bigger than the one present on the current version of the car. In order to fit this new grille, the headlights should also be slightly changed. We’re expecting to see some new LED jogging lights as well as LED tail-lamps, and even brand new have lights.


We are also expecting to some different bumpers to match both the grille and the headlights, as well as to give the 2019 Toyota 4Runner a more modern look.

One of the things that are being mentioned every time we hear about the 2019 Toyota 4Runner is the new set of wheels.

2019 Toyota 4Runner Interior


In what concerns with the 2019 Toyota 4Runner interior, we are also expecting to see a lot of changes and improvements. Even though the styling of the cabin should remain somewhat the same, there should be changes related to the upgrade of the materials used.

Most rumors are pointing to the existence of a new 6.1 HD touchscreen that should be included on all versions of the car.

In terms of the safety features, we already know that Toyota usually includes many, even on the standard models.


Under the hood, there are also going to be some changes. In our opinion, Toyota won’t be using the 4.0 V6 engine anymore on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner because it’s just not efficient enough for the market today. So, we are expecting this engine to be replaced by a 3.5-liter V6 engine which should be capable of producing 300 of horsepower and 290 of torque.

In what concerns the transmission, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner should come with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Release Date And Price

In what concerns with both the release date and price of the new 2019 Toyota 4Runner, there are no official dates or data yet.

In our opinion, as well as most all other opinions we have been hearing so far, are pointing to the 2019 Toyota 4Runner debut occur in the beginning of 2018 at one of the larger auto shows. It should then arrive at the dealerships near the end of 2018, maybe in September.

Toyota’s goal should be to maintain the 2019 Toyota 4Runner as a competitive alternative. So, in our opinion, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner starting price should be around the $36,000, and it can go up to $50,000 if you want your new 2019 Toyota 4Runner fully loaded.
