When you’re looking for the best off-road SUV, then you need to consider the Toyota 4Runner. However, you better wait for some time because the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner is about to be released. The 4Runner is not new on the market and you can expect a wider and bigger version of the current generation of the model.
With a powerful engine, a tough look, and behaving amazingly both on-road as well as off-road, the Toyota 4Runner is one of the best vehicles in its segment.
However, the 4Runner we used to know might be disappearing. According to some rumors, the 2018 Toyota 4Runner might not be that good in off-road as it used to be as well as it might go to a unibody design.
2018 Toyota 4Runner Release Date
The current generation of the 4Runner is very popular. So, many rumors are stating that Toyota won’t release the 2018 Toyota 4Runner anytime soon. So, according to our opinion, you may expect to see the 2018 Toyota 4Runner debut at the end of 2018 or in the beginning of 2019.
2018 Toyota 4Runner Price
We are expecting the prices to remain about the same as the ones of the current generation. SO, the base model of the 2018 Toyota 4Runner should start at about $36,000.

2018 Toyota 4Runner Redesign and Changes
Toyota isn’t famous for sporty or aggressive cars. So, the 4Runner really makes the difference.
There are many different rumors regarding the exterior of the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner. While some say the exterior changes won’t be much significant, other say that the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner should look similar to the new Fortuner. In case Toyota follows this last option, we should see 4Runner lose a part of its own personality and character. Since it will look pretty much like RAV4, only bigger, there wouldn’t be a lot of differences.
If there’s one thing we all love about the 2018 Toyota 4Runner is its rough appearance and square-like look. If Toyota does choose to make fewer changes to the exterior of the 2018 Toyota 4Runner, you should expect to see a front similar to the new Tacoma. The grille should stand out and look a bit bulky.
However, the main changes between the current generation and the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner will be on the back. There’s no question that this seems the worst part of the 4Runner. So, Toyota should aim to improve it making it with wider taillights and a little more rounder.

2018 Toyota 4Runner Specs
When it comes to what’s under the hood, Toyota doesn’t like big changes. It’s the kind of brand that prefers a decent power output and reliability. So, in our opinion, the current 4.0-liter V6 engine will be replaced by the 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is able to produce 300 of horsepower.
Despite Toyota is one of those brands who is always willing to go with a hybrid version, we aren’t expecting to see it on the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner. The fact is that costs are a bit higher but adding batteries to a car that is already heavy for its category would give you a bad driver experience. And this is what Toyota is preventing at all costs.
— 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Variant
The 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Variant is a unique model of the 4Runner and usually, it is only available in exclusive colors, which we don’t know yet. The 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Variant TRD Pro Variant should feature a 4.0-liter V6 engine that is capable of producing about 270 of horsepower, which is pretty much the same that is offered by the engine that will be used on the base model.
2018 Toyota 4Runner Interior
In what concerns the 2018 Toyota 4Runner interior, despite there wasn’t any announcement, we believe that there will be some major changes.
Thanks to the new platform, the 2018 Toyota 4Runner cabin should be more spacious. It should be able to feature 7 seats but, unlike the previous generation, it should have a lower floor. This factor, besides offering more space to the passengers, will also allow the driver to have a better driving position.
In terms of the technology that the 2018 Toyota 4Runner will include, you can expect to see the Entune Premium Audio System, an iHeartRadio, Pandora, an optional digital display dash, among many other features.
