The latest update to the 4Runner came in 2010, and that year’s model currently has a book value of between $14,000 and $15,000, depending on condition. A 2023 4Runner has a base MSRP of just over $40,000, making the newest generation unsurprisingly the most valuable.
The update in 2010 brought a more powerful 270 horsepower V-6 and an off-road-ready TRD Pro trim package that included beefier tires, shocks, skid plates, and springs. The 2020 model saw the addition of driver-assist technology like lane departure alert, collision avoidance and pedestrian detection systems, and radar-assisted dynamic cruise control.
The fifth generation also saw the 4Runner’s sales recover from the fourth generation’s nosedive, climbing from less than 50,000 in 2013 to more than 77,000 the following year and besting the 100,000 mark every year from 2016 through last year. It remains to be seen if the climbing sticker price for new 4Runners reverses that trend, but Toyota’s dedication to the model and commitment to the truck and SUV sector means the 4Runner is likely here to stay.
