Toyota has introduced the all-new '25 4Runner, the sixth generation of the off-road-focused SUV.

Built on the TNGA-F truck platform that is shared with the Tacoma, Land Cruiser, Tundra and Sequoia, the 4Runner benefits from a high-strength boxed, steel-ladder frame and a multi-link coil rear and double wishbone front suspension.

The Michigan-based CALTY design team designed the 4Runner alongside the Tacoma, and both share inspiration from the desert racing scene, according to the manufacturer.

The next-generation 4Runner will be available with two different turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder powertrains, including the i-FORCE engine with 278 hp and 317 lb.-ft. of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the i-FORCE MAX hybrid, which pairs the 2.4L engine with a 48hp electric motor, increasing total output to 326 hp. The i-FORCE MAX hybrid is available on TRD Off-Road and Limited models, while standard on the TRD Pro, Trailhunter and Platinum trim levels.

Designed for off-road capability, the new 4Runner will be offered with two-wheel drive, part-time four-wheel drive or full-time four-wheel drive. Four-wheel-drive models have an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case with high/low range along with active traction control and an automatic limited-slip differential. An electronic locking rear differential is standard on TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro and Trailhunter grades. The Limited is offered with an available a full-time four-wheel-drive system with a center locking differential on i-FORCE MAX models, while this setup is standard on Platinum grades.

The 4Runner is also equipped with Toyota's latest interior accessories and appointments. A new 8-in. or available 14-in. multimedia touchscreen displays Toyota's latest audio multimedia system. The system supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and pairs with an available Qi wireless charging pad with enhanced power output. A 7-inch gauge cluster is standard on lower grades and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is standard on higher grades.
