The 2025 Toyota 4Runner SUV is the first new version in 15 years – and it’s had a glow-up, both inside and out.

It’s the final step in Toyota’s plan to redesign its trucks and SUV family.

Known as the ‘five brothers’, the family includes the Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks and the 4Runner, Land Cruiser, and Sequoia SUVs.

The overhaul debuted with the Land Cruiser and Tundra in 2021.

Toyota’s other redesigned trucks and SUVs have improved fuel economy, bringing Toyota’s larger SUVs up to speed with its fuel-efficient vehicles, like the Prius.

However, the miles-per-gallon ratings for the new 2025 Toyota4Runner will be released closer to its showroom arrival this fall.

On the surface, the 2025 Toyoya 4Runner SUV is reminiscent of the recently redesigned Toyota Tacoma pickup.

Look under the hood and you’ll see that the 2025 model will be offered with a hybrid engine for the first time.

The hybrid engine is a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine with a 48-horsepower electric motor integrated into the eight-speed transmission.

It packs an incredible 326 horsepower and 465 foot-pounds of torque.

That compares to the standard turbocharged 2.4-liter engine’s output of 278 horsepower and 317 foot-pounds of torque.

Nine models of the 2025 Toyota 4Runner will be on offer.

These include the SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Sport Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off Road Premium, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and Trailhunter.

The high-end Platinum model is aimed at convenience and luxury features.

Meanwhile, the new Trailhunter model targets off-roading with its rock rails and high-strength steel skid plates.

And the Toyota Land Cruiser has proven just how capable it is, as it climbed a terrifyingly steep incline.

And Toyota SUVs are known for coming to the rescue.

“This all-new 4Runner has incredible versatility and capability that nicely rounds out our truck family,” Toyota group vice president and general manager, Dave Christ said in a company statement.

“We’ve sold over 3 million 4Runners over the past 40 years, and this sixth-generation model offers a cool new look and incredible features yet retains the rugged style and capability our customers love about this adventure icon.”

Per CNBC, Jack Hollis, executive vice president of Toyota Motor North America said that mixing hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric models will help “curb carbon emissions fastest”.

Last year Toyota revealed an awe-inspiring, all-electric Land Cruiser concept.

Pricing of the 2025 Toyota 4Runner will be released closer to its on-sale date as it leaves the production line at the Toyota Tahara plant in Japan.
