2024 4Runner Release Date, Redesign, Concept – This capable, mid-sized SUV has been around for quite some time. It always deals well, especially because most carmakers accomplish’t offer such a vehicle. While most of the automotive market is concentrated on crossovers, there is still a niche for genuine off-roaders that are built on a body-on-frame podium. Although the 4Runner is a rare bird at the moment, we will see changes to it in the future. The design of the 2024 4Runner could be completely revamped.
We stand convinced that the Japanese plant will not change the formula if this redesign appears. Both the body-on-frame design and rugged nature of the model will be retained. We also count on many new technologies and design options, including safety, powertrain and other aspects.
2024 4Runner Redesign
Exterior And Interior Design
We don’t think the exterior dimensions of the 2024 4Runner will be any larger than they were before. A longer wheelbase and more overhangs means less off-road potential. You can still count on the usual off-road features like high ground clearance and other off-road goodies. The TRD Pro model includes most of these features, including locking differentials, four-wheel drive, locking differentials and a two-speed transfer box.
This new design will likely adapt the 2024 4Runner’s styling to fit with the company’s new design language. The new Tundra will have a significant influence on the design of the 2024 4Runner, so it should feature a large grille and futuristic-designed headlights. The overall shape of the vehicle should not change, but the TRD Pro model will have some unique details.
Also, big things can be expected from the interior. The cabin is outdated in every way. It includes’t altered much since its initial takeoff in 2009. The dashboard design is a classic example of old-fashioned aesthetics, mostly made from hard plastics. The 2024 4Runner will have a more appealing look and use better materials. We expect a full range of tech features including an updated infotainment system and smartphone integration, wireless connectivity, and other advanced driver aids.
We don’t think the new model will have any larger dimensions. The interior will not be more spacious, therefore we can’t predict a bigger model. The base models will likely come with only two rows of seats. The third row will be an option and will probably be quite tight. The cargo area is the same.
2024 4Runner Engine
The current model has a 4.0-liter V6 engine. It is quite thirsty and feels slightly underpowered. We expect a completely new powertrain. It will most likely be a new V6 engine with a turbocharger. A turbo-four is also possible, according to some sources. It produces around 275 horsepower and 320 pounds-feet torque, like the one in the Lexus NX. Transmission will also be a major change. We expect the new Tundra to use the same 10-speed unit that is used in the current model. The 5-speed unit on the current model is outdated.
There is also a possibility of a hybrid version, but it’s too early to discuss details. We will be able to provide more details on this matter in due course.
2024 4Runner Release Date And Price
We believe the 2024 4Runner could be on the market by the second half next year, even though officials remain quiet. The new model is expected to be slightly more expensive than the current model in terms of price. Base models will likely cost around 40.000 dollars.
