Official 6G 4Runner Reveal Date!

2025 6th Gen Toyota 4Runner

Mark Your Calendars! Toyota Drops This All New 4Runner Soon!

Toyota hit us with teaser number two for their new and upcoming 4Runner along with the announcement of the official reveal date, which is coming a lot sooner than many had anticipated.

They posted a short form vertical video on their social media pages with a caption that read:

“The power rear window is kind of our thing. The all-new #4Runner will be revealed April 9th.”

Now while many would think that the reveal date was the main focus of this post, the real gold was picked up by enthusiasts almost immediately.

Put away your pitchforks everyone, no need to riot, the rear roll-down window is here to stay!

In addition the the video shared, we were also given a high-resolution teaser photo that gives us a little more of an idea as to what it will look like both from behind and also inside.

Break Down

This second teaser picture expands on the rear-end photo we were given last week of the all-new 4Runner. That being said, I wanna point out what we can see with this new pic. As per usual, if you see anything else that I don’t mention, let us know in the comments down below.

Rear Roll-Down Window Confirmed!

This is a staple to the 4R nameplate and I am happy to see that it is officially confirmed that this new gen will retain this iconic feature for the 2025 model year. They seem to have moved the switch to roll down the rear window to the roof rather than having it in the center console as the 5th Gen does. This is the same area where my Tundra houses its switch, along with where the 4th Gen Tacoma has its as well for the rear sliding glass. The 4R will most likely have the same panel in the roof as well as its truck brothers, which includes a sunglasses holder since all of the multi-terrain functions of those trucks have been moved to the center console.

Massive 14″ Infotainment Screen

Holy tablet screen! Toyota is proud to have this massive display front and center in this teaser photo. It looks to be the same screen that we have on Sequoia, Tundra, and Tacoma. I have a feeling that there will be a smaller 8″ screen offered as well. So for those who don’t like massive screens in their vehicles, don’t freak out just yet. More information to come on this when I get full details on Tuesday the 9th.

Tacoma Inspired Interior

It appears that this new rig doesn’t just share the same massive 14″ screen that the Tacoma does, but rather the whole dash. Now I’m a little upset that it won’t have its own unique interior, however, the 4R and Taco have shared interiors before dating back to when the Tacoma was called the Toyota Pickup in the 1980s.

It wasn’t until the 4th Gen 4R and 2nd Gen Tacoma in 2003 that the interiors were distinguishable. I guess it is a double-edged sword. I love the new interior of the Tacoma, but at the same time, I just wish they weren’t an exact copy of each other. I’m interested to see what interior bits will allow these two to stand apart from one another.

Fold Flat Seats? 

In the photo provided, we only see the two front seats, which again look the same as the new Tacomas. The center seats fold down, but we aren’t sure just how yet. I will be sure to find out for everyone when I get my hands on this vehicle next week.

Final Thoughts

6th Gen 4Runner

Guys, we are just moments away from finally seeing the new 4Runner! This moment is 15 years in the making. I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I was a little nervous.

This vehicle has massive shoes to fill. Not only the shoes of the last generation that has been around since 2010 but the shoes of all generations before it. The 4Runner is iconic to Toyota, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.

I’ll catch you all next week for the grand reveal! Check out my teaser breakdown.

Yeah, we’re aware. We have had all the photos on the backend for a few days. We just can’t go live until TOYOTA says go live.
