Chao stated that the release date of 2023 Toyota 4Runner will remain the same, which is at the end of 2022. The reason is that the pandemic is far from over, thus it affects the supply chains of all Toyota’s products especially related to the manufacture. You can see more of the render update on AutomotivePress youtube channel.

There are a lot of auto enthusiasts that expect better improvements for 2023 Toyota 4Runner, especially for the exterior and interior cabin. Many have thought that those both sectors look outdated and old, especially when compared to the new and modern SUV. Will there be a hybrid option? What about powertrain? Will Toyota be working on that factor too?

The Redesigned Plan

So, what does Toyota have in store related to their upcoming 4Runner for 2023 model? For a starter, they are going to update the exterior appearance. As it was mentioned before, 4Runner is considered a tough and stylish SUV with top-notch performance and quality, but Toyota can seriously improve the exterior visual appeal.

Aside from the improvements on the exterior and interior, be ready for the new engine arrangement too. Considering that it is one of the toughest and strongest midsize SUV in the market, it would be too shame to let exterior look affect future buyers’ judgment. Hopefully, Toyota is able to combine the tough offroad ability and sturdy body construction, along with stylish look and interior comfort that will boost 4Runner’s reputation. If the company is doing it right, it’s possible to make the 4Runner as a tough and solid vehicle with good-looking appearance and convenient interior vibe. That would just be awesome, wouldn’t it?

Hopefully, Toyota should be smart enough about refreshing and updating the interior cabin. They can combine premium material and plastic material, and probably top it off with leather. If it’s executed and applied, 4Runner can be a super popular SUV that no one can resist!

Engine Arrangement

It’s possible that the 2023 Toyota 4Runner will still be using the same V6 unit with 4.0 liter capacity that is paired up with auto five speed transmission. It should work well with all wheel, four wheel, and also rear wheel driving system.

For the 2023 model, though, the 4Runner SR5 will be coming with rear wheel driving system. Other trims (except the Limited) would be coming with four wheel driving system. The details about the powertrain is still vague, but considering that 2023 4Runner is set to compete against Dodge Durango, we can only expect that it would be as powerful as it can be.

Exterior Area

It’s highly likely that the new 4Runner will have new LED headlights as the standard with detailed specs and features based on the trims. For instance, the Trail Edition will be coming with black exterior badge and dark gray 17 inch TRD wheels, while the Pro will get Lunar Rock exterior hue and TRD wheels with tires from Nitto Terra Grappler.

Price and Release Date

Toyota hasn’t said anything about the release date and the price. What we have now is purely speculations and predictions. It’s predicted that the price may be set around $40,000 for the base trim, while availability may be set by the end of 2022, although, again, it is still unclear. We need to wait for official release from Toyota about their 2023 Toyota 4Runner.
