2025 Toyota 4Runner Teased Again As Upcoming Ford Bronco Foe

Toyota has been a on a roll in terms of launching new products as of late, ranging from the next-generation Tundra to the all-new Tacoma and revamping the Land Cruiser for the U.S., too. That means that the Toyota 4Runner is easily one of the oldest models in its current lineup, as the current fifth-generation model debuted way back in 2009 for the 2010 model year. Regardless, the rugged SUV and Ford Bronco rival remains a hot seller for the Japanese automaker, and we’ve been expecting the arrival of an all-new model for some time now. That process officially began last week when the 2025 Toyota 4Runner was officially teased for the first time, giving us a sneak peek at its rear bumper. Now, the rugged SUV has been teased yet again, shedding light on a few more of its features.

This new teaser gives us a close-up look at the rear window of the 2025 Toyota 4Runner – which, like the current model – rolls up and down for more of an open-air experience. Perhaps more interestingly, we also get to peek inside the cabin, revealing a much larger infotainment screen – one that appears to be the same 14-inch unit that’s available in the redesigned 2024 Tacoma, with which the new 4Runner is expected to share many components. If true, that would make it larger than the Bronco’s now-standard 12-inch screen.

Aside from that, it’s clear that the 2025 Toyota 4Runner will sport an edgy, squared-off look previewed by the lines we saw in this and the previous teaser, and the video posted above confirms that the new SUV will officially debut in just a few days – on April 9th. It’s unclear what we can expect from the 2025 Toyota 4Runner otherwise – though the automaker is benchmarking the Ford Bronco Raptor, as Ford Authority recently reported – but it’s a safe bet that Toyota will release at least a couple more teasers between now and its official unveiling.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Not sure what good the transmission longevity is when the frames rust to catastrophic failure in 6 years – ref. Tacoma disaster.

    My 03 4runner frame looks like swiss chess yet my older 99 land cruiser doesnt even have surface rust.
