New for 2014

For 2014, the Toyota 4Runner introduced a new front grille and revised headlights, in addition to a new instrument panel that gets a touchscreen infotainment system with Toyota’s Entune system.

Vehicle Overview

The Toyota 4Runner is the automaker’s mid-size SUV that sits above the Venza and below the Land Cruiser and Sequoia. Now in its fifth generation the 4Runner stays true to its roots and is nearly as capable on the road as it is off-road.


The refreshed 2014 Toyota 4Runner comes with a 270-hp 4.0-liter V-6 that makes 278 lb-ft of torque, while getting at EPA-estimated 17/21-22 mpg city/highway. A five-speed automatic can be paired with rear- or four-wheel drive, with a one mpg penalty on the highway for 4WD. All 4WD models comes with low range, downhill assist, and an off-road traction program, while the Trail version adds a locking rear differential, crawl control, and a terrain-selection dial.
The 2014 4Runner can be equipped with a third row, with seating for up to seven. While off-road ready trims are part of the 4Runner's appeal, Toyota also makes available a Limited trim that includes chrome trim on the exterior and 20-inch wheels that now have black contrasting details.
The 2014 Toyota 4Runner received a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing received four ratings of good (the highest possible rating is good), and a rating of marginal in the new and more difficult small overlap front category.

What We Think

In a Driven review of a (pre-face-lift) 2010 Toyota 4Runner we said, “the ride is comfortable in most situations, although hitting the right string of roadway patches and bumps elicits a side-to-side toss that reveals the live-rear-axle suspension.” The V-6 is “unexpectedly smooth” and the 4Runner gets up to speed adequately. We summed up our review noting that, “the 4Runner’s biggest problem just might be Toyota’s expansive lineup, where the Highlander crossover and the full-size Sequoia SUV are compelling bookends to the typical buyer’s needs.”

2014 Toyota 4Runner Limited Epic Drive Main2
Thirty-two men died building the 4-foot-diameter, 800-mile-long steel tube winding like an impassive snake past my driver’s door window and into the horizon. Given where the serpent lives, though, it could’ve easily slayed more. This is Alaska, more than twice the size of Texas yet home to barely 725,000 hardy residents, most of whom consider winter temperatures of 20 degrees below zero a “thaw.” Yet despite a landscape often frequented by more bears than humans, one plagued by some of the harshest weather on the planet, in 1977 brilliant engineers and heroic contractors completed the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS), which defies Mother Nature and belief to transport mankind’s “other” lifeblood across the entirety of the state—from the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay, 300 miles above the Arctic Circle, to the ice-free southern seaport of Valdez.

2015 Toyota Tacoma And 4Runner
Aimed at the hardcore off-road enthusiast, Toyota will roll out a new line of purpose-built trucks under its Toyota Racing Development (TRD) banner in fall 2014. The TRD Pro series adds a special set of exclusive equipment to certain Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner models with 4x4 capability.
