2014 Toyota 4Runner: 17 mpg city, 22 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined (RWD); 17/21/18 mpg (4WD)

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

The Toyota 4Runner's gas mileage doesn't fare too badly, for what could be a truly inefficient SUV.

The EPA has downgraded the 4Runner slightly, though, for the 2014 model year. Fuel economy is down to 17 miles per gallon city, 22 miles per gallon highway, a loss of 1 mpg on the highway cycle.

Keep in mind that those ratings hold true for the rear-wheel-drive edition; with four-wheel drive, the 4Runner's been rated at 17/21 mpg, another 1-mpg downer.

There are seven-passenger crossovers that match or exceed those numbers, though. 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 just aren't as good for gas mileage.



Gas mileage isn't the 4Runner's best feature; families and frugal drivers should steer toward a car-based crossover instead.

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.
