With a starting priced at $40,155, the 4Runner is powered by a 4.0L V6 engine delivering 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Its fuel efficiency sits at 16 city and 19 highway MPG. It offers a wheelbase of 109.8 inches, a length of 190.2 inches, a width of 75.8 inches, and a height of 73.2 inches. Ground clearance is ample at 9.6 inches, with an approach angle of 33 degrees and a departure angle of 26 degrees. Cargo volume stands at 46.3-47.2 cubic feet, and it can tow up to 5,000 lbs.
On the other hand, the 2024 Land Cruiser is projected to start at around $50,000. It boasts a 2.4L Turbo Inline-4 engine coupled with an electric motor, generating a robust 326 horsepower and a whopping 465 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic, and unlike the 4Runner, 4WD comes standard. It also offers improved fuel economy with an estimated 25 city and 27 highway MPG. The Land Cruiser is slightly larger with a wheelbase of 112.2 inches, a length of 193.7 inches, and a width of 84.2 inches, though the height and ground clearance match the 4Runner.
