This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, please read our disclosure policy here

I’m a 4Runner girly all the way. I love the look, the drive and the reliability of the 4Runners.

And if I am being honest, I was not excited about the new redesign for the 4Runner because I’ve always loved the rigged look of the 5th gen (and I own a 5th gen).

Well, I have to say, after seeing the first look at the new 2025 Toyota 4Runner, I think I need to own one because I am loving the design.


Meet the 2025 Toyota 4Runner. The one above is the Trailhunter edition that was previously teased from Toyota.

I have to say, that teal color is the first thing that caught my eye – LOVE IT!

The full specs and design has been officially released from Toyota so if you’ve been waiting, now is the time!!

According to Toyota:

The all-new 2025 Toyota 4Runner stays true to its original concept, as an extremely capable, dynamic, and durable off-roader and will continue to provide owners a window to bigger worlds. The new generation introduces a bold new look and adds new technology, premium materials, options, and safety. In fact, this all-new sixth generation 4Runner raises the bar in terms of go-anywhere capability and high-end refinement.


While the initial images have some diehard 4Runner fans excited, others cannot fall in love with the design.

Some are comparing it to the Toyota Sequoia (which I totally see in the image below) and others are comparing it to the new Ford Explorer.


4Runner is all-new from the ground up and is built on Toyota’s tough TNGA-F global truck platform that is shared with Tacoma, Land Cruiser, Tundra and Sequoia. This platform utilizes a high-strength boxed, steel-ladder frame and features a multi-link coil rear and double wishbone front suspension
