Toyota 4Runner 2018: The Expected Changes

It is a definite thing which Toyota 4Runner 2018 will get a few changes — and not only the gentle one but a really serious one. How can it influence the upcoming 4Runner?

For a starter, besides focusing on the new unibody structure, they will also do some redesigned works on some parts of the main areas. Instead of using the all steel construction, there will be aluminum replacement that is said to be lighter and remain stronger — important for the construction and the effect on the performance. After all, Toyota is planning on improving the fuel efficiency system whilst keeping the production cost low. Who knows? Perhaps they will have the ability to do it, after all.

Price and Release Date

On the contrary to what folks have anticipated, the new Toyota 4Runner 2018 will not be coming in all new version expectation but don’t worry, it will be improved. Considering that 4Runner was known for its great excellent ride and also remarkable offroad capability, it is pretty safe to say that Toyota might want to retain the offroad performance when improving better handling, control, and stability for its onroad setting.

It is likely to find the introduction of the new 4Runner in the late 2017 followed by the official launch in the early 2018. For the price, it is possible that there will be a increase — ideally not too much — reaching around $2000, which means that the base will start from around $33,000 whereas the highest one will reach approximately $42,000.


While improvements and refreshments are made on the exterior area, expect the ride to retain its signature boxy style — even though it is possible that the back area will be rounder and the front hood will be longer. The grille may be bulkier with broader taillights. As for the interior, nothing to expect but some added space for the cabin and more space for the cargo.

For your engine, it will be smaller, considering the 4Runner is coming using a unibody construction. It will compromise the offroad ability though it’s going to also boost the onroad capacity. For your new engine, the Toyota 4Runner 2018 will likely use V6 naturally aspirated direct injection engine with 3.5 liter capacity that is delivering 300 hp of power — enough juice to accommodate the seven passenger crossover.
