Performance and Fuel Economy

When comparing the new Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner, we have to mention their capabilities and performance features. They both offer that incredible performance Toyota vehicles are known for, but each delivers different capabilities on the Bluffton roadways.

  • Highlander: When you opt for the 2019 Highlander, you get the choice of either a 2.7L four-cylinder engine or a 3.5L V6 engine. The four-cylinder engine delivers an EPA-estimated 20/24 city/highway mpg* while the V6 sports 21/city and 27/highway mpg*.
  • 4Runner: The 4Runnercomes equipped with 4.0L V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). Drivers will enjoy a reliable EPA-estimated 17/city and 20/highway mpg*.

Chatham County-area buyers who want a stronger fuel economy, more horsepower, and standard all-wheel drive will want to check out the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The new Toyota 4Runner doesn’t offer a hybrid option.

Interior Features

When you compare the Highlander vs. 4Runner, you will notice that a lot of the technology features overlap. Equipped in both SUVs are features like Toyota Entune™ Audio, a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen, and a backup camera with projected path. Even though there are similarities, they each offer their own standard features:

  • Highlander: Enjoy a 4.2-inch color LCD Multi-Information Display, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, 4-way adjustable front passenger seat, and 60/40-split, sliding, and reclining fold-flat second-row seats.
  • 4Runner: Inside the 4Runner enjoy a leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, 4-way adjustable front passenger seat, and a 40/20/40 split reclining and fold-flat second-row seat.

While every Toyota Highlander trim level offers three rows of seating, the new 4Runner is available with either two or three rows.
