What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota 4Runner

Toyota 4Runner Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range
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.
2008 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Higher than average for this size and type of vehicle.
2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Best mileage for a vehicle that can tow 5,000 pounds. 21mpg in the summer for my typical daily driving.
2003 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic AWD w/low range
Fuel economy is poor. I get 14.5 to 15.5 mpg in stop-and-go commuting. Maybe 18 mpg on the highway.

Not really bad, but how about a hybrid? A Prius 4runner?
2007 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic AWD w/low range
Getting an average of 16-17MPG with V8, but I expected that
2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
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.
2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
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.
2006 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
less than 20 MPG in the city.
2006 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Lousy mileage around town. ~ 18.
2005 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
This is obvious
2004 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic AWD w/low range
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.
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.
2004 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 4.0L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
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.
 

Toyota 4Runner Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Toyota 4Runner's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
