The last major update of the 4Runner crossover included TRD off-road package. Besides that, this SUV had no other significant update for the last couple of years. Now, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner will refresh the interest among the fans of the vehicle. Well, it will again offer TRD features and options at higher levels. This SUV is one of the most versatile one in the class, with great off-road capabilities. Extra options are making it even more interesting. Three standards and three TRD trim levels are probably coming back in 2019. Another option is a hybrid drivetrain. So, a lot of changes are making it worth of waiting for 4Runner 2019.
2019 Toyota 4Runner engines and hybrid
There are two drivetrain options for 2019 Toyota 4Runner SUV. One of them is a new 3.5-l V-6 engine. It will replace the aging 4.0-l V-6 present in current offer. Nevertheless, this unit is more fuel-friendly. It can also deliver 270 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The base mill is not capable of such output, so we believe that powertrain will come with a turbocharger. Also, the same unit can pair the conventional drivetrain with electric motors to create a hybrid. With a help of batteries, 4Runner will get improvements in hp and mpg outputs. This would be another plug-in model in SUV segment after the new Highlander.
