"The 4Runner remains one of the last truck-based mid-size SUVs." - cars.com

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is majorly unchanged and continuing with its 270 hp 4.0L V-6 engine that can tow up to 5,000 lbs. Its production line begins with SR5 at $37,305 for standard RWD which gets more expensive at $52,120 for the off-road specialist TRD Pro. Furthermore, despite offering 17 MPG fuel efficiency, it can deliver acceleration from 0-60 MPH in less than 8 seconds. Moreover, it scores a J.D.Power rating of 82 that reinforces Toyota's reliability stature. 

Considering the destination fee, the expense is calculated to be $1,215. Also, its resale value reduces by $7,243 in 5 years while the maintenance charges cost $4,586 separately. Though it has got that heavy-lifting mark yet its repair charge does not exceed over $700 and fuel cost amounts to be nearly $13,000 for the starting 5 years. In addition to that, one has to pay around $4,015 for insurance for the same time period. And the RWD layout on offer can be switched to available 4X4 after spending $1,875 extra.

2022 Toyota 4Runner Buying Advice

The SR5 Premium with a 4X4 layout is the most balanced trim among all. It has a perfect blend of off-roading stability, interior comfort with heated front seats, and 8-speaker Audio for interior engagement. On top of that, it has a refined safety suite of Toyota Safety Sense P as standard, thereby, ensuring a safe drive as well. Along with that, it is advisable to opt for the Third Row Seating - SofTex Package at $2,315 that adds a power moonroof and SofTex seats in the third row that enhance the overall appeal and makes it a wrothy one.

2022 Toyota 4Runner Engine and Performance

7.0/10

"The outdated powertrain provides unremarkable acceleration." - Car And Driver

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner has been empowered with the same 4.0L V-6 that churns out 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is hooked up with a 5-Speed Automatic Transmission either in RWD or Full-Time 4X4 or Part-Time 4X4. Noting that, the TRD Pro, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Off-Road get 4x4 as the standalone drive layout to maneuver with.

The Toyota 4Runner is simply a class in off-roading in its TRD Off-Road, TRD Sport, and TRD Pro configurations. The X-REAS Sport Enhancement Suspension in the TRD Sport maintains the ground clearance irrespective of any terrain and the wheels don't lose ground while going over bumps. The Multi-Terrain Select and CRAWL Control further improve the vehicle sloping dynamics. 

The 2022 4Runner is capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH 7.7 seconds and covering a quarter-mile in 16 seconds with a top speed of 114 MPH. Alongside that, it has been armed with 13.3-inch front and 12.3-inch rear vented disc brakes that bring it to 70-0 MPH in a braking distance of 194 ft. The Brake Assist and 4-Wheel ABS have been integrated as well to round up the braking more efficiently.

Based on the comparison, the 4Runner has 5 hp less power than the Bronco, hence, lags behind it in 0-60 MPH by 1.4 seconds. However, it has 1,500 lbs more towing capacity than the Bronco, costing almost $5,000 at the same time. On the other hand, the Defender can tow 2,000 lbs extra over 4Runner but is $13,000 more expensive than it at the least. 

2022 Toyota 4Runner Fuel Economy

9.0/10

"The boxy 4Runner does not offer good fuel economy." - The Car Connection

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner returns a combined fuel economy of 17 MPG and 19 MPG while driving on the highways. The 23-gallon fuel tank capacity further helps it to achieve a range reach of up to 437 miles at the max and 391 miles on a daily basis.

As per data, the Toyota Runner offers 41 miles extra over Jeep Wrangler, all thanks to its 5.5-gallon bigger fuel tank. The Bronco, meanwhile, can be 4 MPG more efficient than the 4Runner yet falls short by 36 miles in range practicality due to its 6.1-gallon smaller fuel capacity.  

2022 Toyota 4Runner Interior

7.0/10

"The interior design looks pretty dated." - Kelley Blue Book

The unchanged interior of the 2022 Toyota 4Runner is practical and spacious yet outdated. The trim lineup has been majorly adorned with either fabric or SofTex trim, like Black & Graphite, for its seats except for the Limited configuration where it upgrades to perforated leather upholstery. These leatherette touches include accents such as Sand Beige and Redwood. The tilt/telescopic leather-wrapped steering also retains its presence in the upcoming model. 

The power-adjustable seats are constant all across the Toyota 4Runner production belt, however, it is those heating and ventilation functions that have been embedded in sync exclusively for the Limited trim only. Apart from this, this 5-seater SUV features flexible space management where its cargo capacity ranges from 47.4 cu-ft to 89.7 cu-ft depending on the rear row seat positioning.

The 2022 4Runner has got a better cargo capacity than Wrangler by some 35 cu-ft. But the latter offers 3-inch more headroom and legroom in the rear row as compared to the former. Even the Defender defends its rear row space quite conveniently against 4Runner with its 7-inch extra legroom and 2-inch more headroom. Considering the infotainment unit, the 8-inch touchscreen and 8-speaker Audio come as standard in the base trim. 

In addition to these, the Dynamic Navigation makes it to features list either as standard or optional right from the SR5 depending on the trim. There is a 15-JBL Speaker Premium Audio as well for a better musical experience that is standard in the Limited trim. The 4Runner can also be availed of with a Premium chrome-accent Multi-Information Display in pairing with the aforemetioned. A few of the features have been listed down:    

  • Heated front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Amazon Alexa compatibility
  • Bluetooth

"This legendary machine is built the old fashioned way." - Motor Trend

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner comes dimensionally unchanged as it is from the 2021 model year. But for the 2022 model year, it has received the newly added standard features namely HighBeam LED headlights and fog lights. Not just that, there are 10 exterior color options to choose from including the shades of the Nautical Blue Metallic and Magnetic Gray Metallic.

The Toyota 4Runner rides either on the 17-inch or 20-inch wheels depending on the trim level. The top receives an optional moonroof for $630 too as per trims such as the SR5 Premium. One can even invest an amount of $185 for the Roof Rack Cross Bars for enhancing the loading capacity and practicality. In the end, comes the Paint Protection Film costing $485 that adds value to its overall outlook.

From the data, it is pretty visible that the 4Runner is 500 lbs heavier and 23-inch longer than the Wrangler. This, on the whole, allows Wrangler to have a more compact body and better gradient handling on tough terrains. The Defender simultaneously is 6-inch taller, 4-inch wider, and 150 lbs heavier than 4Runner that disturbs its overall stability while going up the slope. Some of the other notable features are as follows: 

  • LED headlights
  • LED tail lights
  • 17-/20-inch wheels
  • Sunroof
  • Roof rails
  • Chrome exterior accents

2022 Toyota 4Runner Safety

9.0/10

"Despite its age, the 4Runner does well in this department." - CarsDirect

Since the 2022 Toyota 4Runner is mechanically the same as that of its predecessor, so it will have a safety rating of 4-star by NHTSA and overall "Good" by IIHS. In addition to that, it has been given Toyota Safety Sense P suite as standard along with mentioned features such as:

  • Daytime Radar Cruise Control

7.0/10

2022 Toyota 4Runner Vs. 2022 Land Rover Defender

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner has a slightly better performance but lacks the towing capacity by a huge margin against the 2022 Defender. The Defender also tends to have more seating roominess inside the cabin and fuel economy. However, it struggles when it comes to cargo volume and that too it comes at a much higher price. So, it has to be the Toyota 4Runner between the two.

   

2022 Toyota 4Runner Vs. 2022 Ford Bronco

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner might have an edge of towing prowess and cargo capacity over Bronco but it hardly manages to outclass it in any other segment. Be it spaciousness, fuel economy, or price tag, the Bronco is simply a better proposition to opt for.   

2022 Toyota 4Runner Vs. 2022 Jeep Wrangler

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner has lower cabin space for passengers as compared to Jeep Wrangler. But 4Runner has more power performance and cargo capacity along with better towing capacity at a relatively decent higher price. Hence, Toyota takes the lead here.  

 

2022 Toyota 4Runner Final Verdict

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is a fine 5-seater SUV that entails both safety and off-roading nudges. The interior accents and exterior could have been improved slightly to make it more appeal but its functionalities compensate for those. The handling and driving experience with its mechanical attachments are at par with all the other rugged ones. So, it is surely at the top of the wishlist.

good midsize SUV but less economical

Pros - Good off roading capability, versatile cargo area and solid,trucky feel.

Cons - Choppy ride, doesn’t handles quite well, poor fuel economy and limited safety features

a trusty tool for any kind of expedition I bought the 2018 4Runner after trading in a 2010 Ford FX2 F-150. The fit and quality are superb. I don't see the metal waver as I did with the F-150 when I bang the door. Although it's a reliable companion for every adventure, it's not so polite in town. So far, I'm really loving the truck; even with the off-road tyres, it rides nicely and the road noise isn't as awful as it was with my old truck. But Toyota should have made this vehicle a bit more safer.cmj= I'd want to poi...

Problematic Front Suspensions!!

Pros - Spacious cabins, Dominant V6 engine, Water wading capacity

Cons - Excess vibrations on cabins, Brittle suspensions, Expensive repair cost

Not smooth as expected Unexpectedly, its front suspensions became weak within just 70K miles and I felt excess vibrations on the steering wheel while driving on bumpy roads. When I asked the servicemen, they suggested replacing the dampers and bushings to get back the smoothness. I've spent $1,850 and they had the car for about a week but still, the ride quality didn't recover. I never expected these issues from Toyota, who praises themselves for their reliability. I had no issues with the purchasing process since t...

Feel like throwing it away but its massive and heavy I really hate my 4Runner and this is one of the worst purchases I’ve ever made. I really for the looks and the FOMO kicked in thinking somebody else might buy it before I do. The handling on this car is a complete trash and fails to respond well to my steering inputs. Ride gets bumpy real quick making everyone in the 4Runner wanting to get out. They boasted their vehicle like it’s the best in the world and they sounded so legit that I wanted the car.
