Toyota SUVs rule the roads of Flower Mound and Coppell, but with so many excellent choices, it can be tricky to pick your favorite. Because so many customers wrestled with the decision of the Toyota Highlander vs. Toyota 4Runner, we’ve created this guide to two of the most popular SUVs in the lineup. Whether you want the spacious capacity and smooth performance of the Highlander or the adventure-ready spirit of the 4Runner, we’re here to steer you toward your dream vehicle!

Highlander vs. 4Runner: Price

Both Toyota SUVs offer great value at a great price. If you’re a budget-minded driver, you might prefer the savings of the Toyota Highlander – which is around $1,500 cheaper than the 4Runner. But if you want the off-road features that the 4Runner offers, that price difference is negligible when spread out over the duration of your loan or lease. Plus, you can take advantage of trade-in deals and special offers to level the playing field.

Highlander vs. 4Runner: Performance

Between the Highlander and 4Runner, you’ll find two distinctive personalities. The Highlander was designed for smooth and seamless driving, while the 4Runner has a bit of an edge. If you want a comfortable ride for Carrollton, the Highlander is perfect. But if you crave weekend off-road trips, you’ll adore the 4Runner’s capabilities and robust build. Either way, you’ll be treated to impressive power and a 5,000-pound towing capacity when properly equipped.

  • Highlander: The Highlander is equipped with a standard 3.5L V6 engine, which cranks out 295 hp and a solid 27 mpg highway**. The Highlander is also available as a hybrid for even greater fuel economy.
  • 4Runner: The 4Runner comes with a 4.0L V6 DOHC 24-Valve engine with 270 hp, along with rugged options like Crawl Control and Multi-terrain Select for tough off-road conditions.

Highlander vs. 4Runner: Space

Think about what you need out of your next Toyota SUV. The Highlander has three rows of seating for passengers, seating between 7 and 8 in total. So if you travel with family and friends, the Toyota Highlander will give you plenty of elbow room. But if you need a vehicle to store lots of cargo, the 4Runner has a slight edge. Though this SUV only holds between 5 to 7 passengers, it holds up to 88.8 cubic feet of cargo! That’s plenty of room for skis, camping gear, and more.
