Toyota 4Runner 2024 Changes, Release Date, Price – This capable, mid-sized SUV has been around for quite some time. It always sells well, especially because most carmakers accomplish’t offer such a vehicle. While most of the automotive demand is concentrated on crossovers, there is still a niche for genuine off-roaders that are built on a body-on-frame platform. Although the 4Runner is a rare bird at the moment, we will see changes to it in the future. Toyota 4Runner 2024 may already be completely redesigned.
We are confident that the Japanese manufacturer will not change the recipe if this redesign occurs. 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.
Toyota 4Runner 2024 Redesign
Exterior And Interior Design
All kinds of new features are expected from the Toyota 4Runner 2024 redesign. Although it is too early to discuss details, we know the basic design options. The platform is obviously the most obvious thing that comes to mind. The new model will be able to switch to the body-on-frame version TNGA platform. This platform is also known as TNGA F. We expect improvements to various aspects of the new model, including a significant weight reduction and new drivetrain options.
We don’t think the Toyota 4Runner 2024 will have a larger exterior design. 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 will include most of these features, including four-wheel drive standard, locking differentials and a two-speed transfer box. This SUV will be adapted to the new company design language with its new styling. The new Tundra will have a significant influence on the Toyota 4Runner 2024. This means that the Toyota 4Runner 2024 will 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 The cabin is outdated in every way.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 hasn’t changed much since its initial launch in 2009. The dashboard design is particularly outdated, with its old-fashioned aesthetics and a lot of hard plastics. The Toyota 4Runner 2024 will have a more appealing look and use better materials. We also 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 interior. 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.
Toyota 4Runner 2024 Engine
The current model has a 4.0-liter V6 engine. It is 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.
Toyota 4Runner 2024 Release Date And Price
We believe the Toyota 4Runner 2024 could be on the market by the second half next year, even though officials remain silent. The new model is expected to be slightly more costly than the current model in terms of price. Base models will likely cost around 40.000 dollars.
