TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota 4Runner

Toyota 4Runner Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
2007 The 4Runner's dated powertrain--its automatic transmission is down three gear ratios compared to the Jeep's--and brick-like aerodynamics aren't good for fuel economy. EPA ratings are just 17 city, 21 highway. The Jeep with its V6 engine does the same in city driving, but 3 mpg better on the highway. Plus you can get a diesel engine in the Jeep, and it rates 21/28. In real-world suburban driving, I managed to coax the 4Runner's trip computer average as high as 24.6, but high teens and low 20s were more typical. On the highway the trip computer reported 20.5, close to the EPA rating. see full Toyota 4Runner review

Mid size and large SUVs are not good on fuel economy. While shopping this market fuel economy was a consideration. Fuel economy is projected at 17 mpg in the city and 22-23 mpg on the highway. This is one of the leaders for vehicles in this class. see full Toyota 4Runner review

The dash readout is optimistic. I often though I was getting over 25mpg only to calculate as low as 14--on the highway! Ultimately, this was the 4Runners undoing. I traded it for a much more efficient Camry. see full Toyota 4Runner review

If fuel cost is a concern, then this is definitely not the vehicle to have. Manages 18mpg combined if driven carefully. Does what it does extremely well so nothing unexpected. see full Toyota 4Runner review

2004 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic AWD w/low range
It uses quite a bit of gas, I average 16 l/ 100km, or roughly about 15 mpg, and I do fair bit of highway driving. see full Toyota 4Runner review

Not that I dislike the 4runners fuel economy, actually for a large sport utility it does pretty good, just done buy a suv if your looking to get good gas mileage. see full Toyota 4Runner review

I knew going in that it would use a lot, but it still makes me grimace. Still, when we had a foot of new snow and I was driving around stalled and tire-spinning vehicles with absolutely no difficulty (on Michelin all-seasons), you figure that it balances. see full Toyota 4Runner review

Toyota RAV4 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The area I live in always yields the city MPG rating, or less. It is suburbia, USA and that means you hit lots of stop lights and have to get up to 45, just to stop for another stop light. Rarely is there ever any real highway driving, in which you go for 5+ miles at highway speed. So all in all, a 23-25mpg in this situation is great. At higher highway speeds, for long periods, I say 28mpg (acutal measured using miles and gallons calcs) vs. trusting the car computer. For the size and weight of the car, I'd say that is great! And I leave it in the ECO mode, to save more MPGs though there is a normal mode, and sport mode. The car has plenty of power, even in ECO mode, so don't be fooled by fancy ads, the mpg's are great! see full Toyota RAV4 review

2011 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
My wife and I both drive with a lead foot (80 mph average on highway or more) and this car still averaged 24 mpg the whole time under our ownership (38,000 miles) according to the computer. Real world mpg readings by myself supported that figure as well. see full Toyota RAV4 review

Good for a vehicle its size. Similar to my 4cyl Acura in actual driving. see full Toyota RAV4 review

For an AWD V6 SUV fuel economy is very good and only uses 1 mpg more than the 4cyl model, while providing considerably more power. see full Toyota RAV4 review

Amazing for an SUV - First 2 weeks we had it, went on 2 trips over 200 miles each mostly highway. Got over 27 MPG. There are some 4 cyl CARS that do not get that, let alone an SUV. We are saving $50/month just on gas compared to the minivan we traded in see full Toyota RAV4 review

I've only been driving in heavy traffic and urban cycle, but so far the computer calculates that the car is a complete pig - 16 MPG average with the auto temp on (so AC running). My FR-S easily handles the same in the mid-20s. Maybe less idling / crawling / jackrabbit starting and I'll get the average up. After 3 days and more "normal" driving (some highway in there), I hit low 20s (if the calculator was right - it could be 2 MPG optimistic like the one in my FR-S). see full Toyota RAV4 review
