Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 23 highway (RWD); 17/22 (4WD)
U.S. EPA

A green “eco” light in the dash comes on when you’re being thrifty on the throttle, and we averaged 18 mpg over a mix of highway cruising and off-road slogging
Car and Driver




Compared to trucklike SUVs, as well as V-6 or V-8 crossovers, the Toyota 4Runner isn't all that bad, with its EPA ratings of up to 17 mpg city, 23 highway. The 4Runner's body-on-frame layout has some advantages off-road or when hauling heavy loads, but its added weight (compared to modern car-based crossovers) and boxier body altogether aren't good for gas mileage.

The 4Runner's EPA rating of 17 mpg in the city is 1 mpg better than that of the V-6 Grand Cherokee, and better than virtually all larger trucks.

You might say that the 4Runner needs a four-cylinder option, but Toyota has tried that--recently--and that model disappointed for mileage, at 18/23 with rear-wheel drive.

 

Conclusion

There's no green pick here in the Toyota 4Runner lineup; if family duty is the main game, you have many more fuel-efficient alternatives.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
