2025 Toyota 4Runner Teased in New Instagram PostToyota
  • Toyota just gave us a sneak peek of the new 2025 4Runner for the first time, revealing a close-up of the redesigned SUV's rear bumper.

  • The 4Runner is expected to be completely redesigned for 2025, entering a new generation with the Tacoma pickup as its base.

  • The new photo comes a month after we spotted a fully covered prototype testing near Toyota's R&D facility in southeast Michigan.

Toyota has given us our first look at the all-new 4Runner, which is expected to arrive later this year as a 2025 model. The company teased the redesigned SUV in a new Instagram post that shows the evolution of the 4Runner through the ages, culminating in a close-up shot of the 4Runner's new rear bumper.

The written-out "4Runner" badge on the rear tailgate, which has lived directly under the Toyota badge for years, has migrated to sit directly above the bumper in a new blocky font. We can also spot redesigned taillights peaking out at the top of the image.

The teaser comes a month after we caught a heavily camouflaged 4Runner prototype testing near Toyota's R&D center (and Car and Driver HQ) near Ann Arbor, Michigan. That spotting indicated that the SUV will retain a similar size to the 2024 model, though the 2025 4Runner is expected to use the mid-size Tacoma pickup truck as its base.

We'll have to wait a bit longer for confirmation from Toyota, but, we expect the new version to be equipped with both the Tacoma and Land Cruiser's hybrid and nonhybrid four-cylinder engine options along with the truck's off-roading goodies.
