Is the 2019 Toyota 4Runner the right SUV for me?

Pricing and Fuel Costs

With a starting price tag of $35,110 for base SR5 configurations, the 2019 4Runner isn’t the most affordable SUV in the Toyota lineup. While its fuel economy ratings are comparable with other off-road focused SUVs, it also uses more gas than other family-friendly SUVs like the Toyota Highlander or Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The price tag is more than worth it for drivers who want to take advantage of its off-road capability and power, but if you only plan to drive your SUV to and from work on smooth pavement a different Toyota SUV may be a better match.

Off-Road and Towing Needs

The off-road capability, construction, and specialized features in the 2019 Toyota 4Runner are what make it shine. With performance focused TRD grades, a durable body-on-frame construction, and features like skid plates, a full-size spare tire, Toyota Crawl Control, and Multi-Terrain Select, the 2019 4Runner lineup is poised to tackle the road ahead, no matter what’s standing in your way. For drivers who plan to utilize their SUV for outdoor adventuring, it’s our favorite pick in the Toyota SUV lineup.
