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

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. see full Toyota 4Runner review
2008 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6

Higher than average for this size and type of vehicle. see full Toyota 4Runner review
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. 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
2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6

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

less than 20 MPG in the city. 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
2004 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8

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
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. see full Toyota 4Runner review
