The online configurator for the 2019 Toyota 4Runner lineup is now live. This means we now know pricing and options on all trim levels, including the off-road mack-daddy TRD Pro. For those looking at a 2019 Toyota 4Runner, prices have gone up across the range. Here is how things look across the range.
The base model SR5 saw a price increase of just $100 to $34,910. The SR5 Premium starts at $38,615. The TRD Off-Road starts at $38,085. TRD Off-Road Premium starts at $39,995. Then there’s the big boy TRD Pro, the big boy, starts at $46,415. That makes it roughly $3,000 more expensive than the last TRD Pro. Finally, the top-spec, fully-loaded Limited model starts at $45,260.
You may be wondering how the TRD Pro managed to gain $3,000 in starting price. Really, there are two big changes from the previous model. The first is the new set of Fox Shocks, which now feature 7 bypass zones in the front and 11 in the rear. Of course, the Tacoma has had Fox Shocks for a while. However, the 4Runner, up until now, had Bilstein shocks.
What about options?
There aren’t a ton of options to choose from. You can pick your choice of paint color: Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, or Voodoo Blue – one of the best paint color names out there. You also have the option for silver-painted rims instead of the normal black ones. Plus you can get some side steps as a dealer-installed option. The other major change is the addition of a factory-mounted roof rack.
Are those changes worth it? It depends. A new set of shocks and a roof rack could easily cost you around $3,000. Plus the new shocks are larger and more robust.
Other than some other small trim changes, not much else has changed. The 4Runner still packs a 4.0-liter V6 that makes 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. That power is sent through a 5-speed automatic transmission. Sure, a five-speed is old-fashioned with the sorts of transmissions kicking around today, but it is tried and tested. Of course, the TRD Pro has a 1-inch lift compared to the other TRD models. The Pro model also features a locking rear differential and Nitto Terra Grappler tires.
