This move is less likely to happen. The chances are bigger that Aichi-based company won’t change its off-roader all that much. Their plan will probably rely on 4Runners loyal customers sticking to 4Runner as they are accustomed. Staying on Toyota Prado platform rather than shifting to a TNGA means that they will, despite rumors claiming otherwise, stick to the body-on-frame chassis.
The changes will mostly be aimed at design upgrades rather than on improving the platform. Toyota will necessarily replace some of the parts on the outside where some of the steel parts are going to be substituted by an aluminum but will nonetheless be placed on a steel frame. There was no news about Japanese manufacturer developing an exclusive platform for this model, and putting it on one used by RAV4 or Highlander would make 4Runner lose its purpose. With making it lighter, Toyota would anyway succeed in making it more fuel-efficient, reduce the price and satisfy the market all at the same time.
2018 Toyota 4Runner Release Date and Price
With the changes on exterior and improvement on the inside, future 2018 Toyota 4Runner aims to be the best one ever made. It won’t be an all-new model as we all were expecting, but it will be improved just as much it was needed. At this moment it is hard to estimate whether it will be better in off-road handling than the previous model ( which would be a feat worth admiring), but Toyota will be working on that. In any case, the price will go up. This model is held in very high regard by Toyota’s head honchos, and they will look to cash in on its popularity. The current model starts at little under $33,000 while the most expensive 4Runner goes for $42,500. These numbers are just right for the quality this SUV offers but expects an increase in price in the region for $2,000. The increase is going to be justified by all the improvements that will 2018 4Runner undergo in not so distant future.
Moving onto the date of release, there is not even one substantial information regarding the exact time. The model will probably be thoroughly tested at first, so we should expect to see test mules any day now. Considering that for 2017 MY Toyota only introduced new trims for this model and the rest of the lineup was transferred unchanged from the previous year, this SUV deserves and improvement. Expect late 2017 presentation of a new Toyota 4Runner 2018 while the first models are going to be delivered in dealerships with the start of a new year.
When it comes to the exterior of 2018 4Runner, there won’t be too many changes. The thing is all of those who are in awe of this model love it for its square-like look and its rough appearance. The outgoing model was well accepted, and its design lasted for quite a while, and in that period Toyota decided to keep changes to a minimum. This time around they will also try to preserve 4Runners authentic look, but some improvements will be made. Expect that the upcoming model borrows some design cues from the current generation of Tacoma especially up front. The grille should be bulky and standout just like on Toyota’s popular pickup with a little longer hood. Some of the differences between current edition and 2018 Toyota 4Runner will be seen on the rear end. This part of the vehicle is by far the most outdated. The changes will be made by creating 4Runners back a little more rounder with wider taillights. There is a possibility that Toyota is going to try to make it a bit more sportier by lowering the rear part of the SUV compared to the flat line currently present.
