  • 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.

Jack Fitzgerald’s love for cars stems from his as yet unshakable addiction to Formula 1.
After a brief stint as a detailer for a local dealership group in college, he knew he needed a more permanent way to drive all the new cars he couldn’t afford and decided to pursue a career in auto writing. By hounding his college professors at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, he was able to travel Wisconsin seeking out stories in the auto world before landing his dream job at Car and Driver. His new goal is to delay the inevitable demise of his 2010 Volkswagen Golf.
