Many of the most practical drivers end up comparing Toyota SUVs when they’re searching for a dependable family vehicle. It’s not hard to see why! With options like the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Toyota 4Runner in the lineup, there’s something for everyone to get excited about at Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington near Morton. If you still haven’t settled on your pick, compare the Highlander vs. 4Runner in depth to find out which model is right for you!


Engine Options and Fuel Economy: Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner

SUVs are made for hauling passengers and cargo, but their capacities aren’t the only things that set them apart. More and more manufacturers are building SUVs that are just as fun to drive as they are practical, and as usual, Toyota is ahead of the curve. Both the Highlander and the 4Runner deliver impressive performance:

  • Highlander: The baseline Highlander model includes a 185-hp 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine, but all other models offer a 295-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine, standard. With the latter option, you’ll enjoy up to 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
  • 4Runner: Every 4Runner includes a 4.0-liter V6 engine that generates 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. With this much power and available full-time four-wheel drive, you’ll have what it takes to conquer any Normal or Decatur challenge. Drivers who choose the 4Runner will enjoy 17 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

Drivers who choose the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will enjoy improved fuel economy, more horsepower, and standard all-wheel drive! The 4Runner does not currently offer a hybrid trim.

Standard Features: Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner

There’s a considerable amount of overlap between the cabins of the 2019 Highlander and the 2019 4Runner. With either choice, you’ll enjoy Entune™ Audio Plus, a standard 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen, and a backup camera with projected path. However, there are more than a few distinguishing features between them:

  • The Toyota 4Runner offers standard fog lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a standard power driver’s seat with lumbar support. To access any of these features in the Highlander, you’ll need to upgrade to a more expensive trim.
  • One of the most significant Highlander advantages is the inclusion of Toyota Safety Sense™ driver assistance tech in every trim. If you desire a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection or Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the Highlander is the SUV for you.

Drivers should also note that while every Toyota Highlander offers three rows of seating, the 4Runner is available with either two rows or three.
