2025 4Runner, Everything We Know So Far

A Stampede Toyota Blog By: Alec Lautermilch. 

Announced on the 9th of April, 2024. The all-new 4Runner has instantly been surrounded with excitement. We will have more details as time goes on and we welcome the 4Runner to our store but for now, let’s break down all we know so far. 

Body on Frame:

The 4Runner has lost a lot of its body on frame peers in the last several decades. We are pleased to see that the 4Runner is still body on frame and has made the switch over to the TNGA-F platform, shared with the Tacoma, Land Cruiser, Tundra, and Sequoia. This modular frame architecture allows for a frame suitable for a ½ ton to be scaled to the 4Runner size. 

New Powerplant:

Love it or hate it, the outgoing 4Runner was no speed demon. For 2025, the 4Runner will be available with two, turbocharged I4 engine options just like the Tacoma. The standard engine will make 278hp and 317lb/ft of torque, up from 270hp (+8) and 278lb/ft (+39). There will also be an iForce Max power system providing 326hp and 465lb/ft of torque (up 56hp and 187lb/ft vs 2024). The iForce Max will be optional on the TRD Off-Road and standard on the TRD Pro, Trail Hunter, and Platinum models. 

Standard 4×4:

Much like the outgoing 4Runner, the 2025 4Runner will be offered with either part-time 4×4 or full-time 4×4. Both are great options for the Calgary driver in need of maximum winter capability. Both these systems will be mated with a high and low-range transfer case. There will also be an available multi-terrain select system allowing the 2025 4Runner to cater its characteristics to the specific terrains upon which it is driving. 

Iconic Design Elements:

Since its first release in 1984, the 4Runner has built quite a name for itself as one of the best SUVs on the market. The 2025 model takes this legacy into account in its design while adhering to the modern Toyota Truck brand language. One of our favourite features are the rear-quarter windows which wrap into the roof much like the second-gen. 4Runner purists will be pleased to hear that the power rear window has returned, allowing for a breeze or easy loading of smaller cargo. 


Much like the rest of the Toyota truck lineup, the interior of the 2025 4Runner has been completely redesigned with new technology, comfort features, and ruggedly designed interior elements. In the centre of the dash, there will be a standard 8-inch Toyota Multimedia touchscreen, this can be upgraded on certain models to a 14-inch for ultimate connectivity. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on this vehicle. There will also be a standard 7-inch cluster screen in the gauges with the option on select models to take this up to a 12.3-inch display on higher trim levels. 

Stampede Toyota knows 4Runners like no one else and we are so excited to see this fresh model in the Toyota Trucks lineup. Stay tuned for further updates and visit Stampede Toyota just off Barlow North in NE Calgary AB for all your automotive needs
