There have been rumors and updates about the upcoming 2019 Toyota 4Runner. The 4Runner has been around for quite a while – it has existed from the 80s – so refreshments and updates for the physical aspect is mostly important. But let’s not forget that the 4Runner is also known for its power and strength, and it is pretty understandable if a lot of auto enthusiasts are hoping for a combination of power, design, and art for the 2019 model.
2019 Toyota 4Runner Engine
There have been several updates stated for the 2019 model. But for the 2019 Toyota 4Runner engine, there will be some changes along the way. For instance, the current 4Runner is using V6 unit with 4.0 liter capacity but it is going to change as Toyota plans to use the V6 unit with 3.5 liter capacity instead. The latter one will be delivering 300 hp of power with 290 Nm of torque. The designed changes are meant to create lighter vehicle but with enough power – affecting the mileage as well as the speed. For this engine arrangement, there will be automatic six speed transmission with rear wheel driving system. Is it possible for this one to have four wheel driving system? Why not? There is always a chance for it.
2019 Toyota 4Runner Redesigned Plan
As it was mentioned before, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner will be coming with lighter construction to boost speed without compromising too much fuel. And Toyota is going to incorporate some elements, such as better materials and newer construction to achieve their goal.
Of course, the mechanical aspect isn’t the only one getting the updates. Physical sectors will definitely get some changes. There will be newer LED lights for the front and also the back with redesigned grille to create a refreshing effect for the 2019 model. The hood is said to be longer and with rounder back, including the new designed extensive taillights. In short, the new 4Runner will be somewhat more aggressive and sportier to get rid of the bland and plain design.
The updates will also extend to the interior cabin. More features and technologies will be incorporated within the new 2019 Toyota 4Runner, such as the LED screen along the tachometer and speedometer and the infotainment system with touchscreen technology. Some people, though, claim that the updates for the cabin aren’t as impressive as they have expected – but then again, everyone has different opinions, right?
2019 Toyota 4Runner Price and Release Date
Although there are images of the spy shots of 4Runner, the release date hasn’t been confirmed yet. But since this 4Runner is designed as the 2019 model, it is highly likely that it will be launched by the end of 2018 – the latest would be the beginning of 2019.
Hopefully, the new construction and design won’t cost too much for this new line. The price is expected to start from around $36,000 (the base variant) while the higher trim may reach $50,000. We should wait and see for further info about 2019 Toyota 4Runner.
