This is an inevitable comparison because both vehicles offer the features and performance Loveland drivers want. See how these two Toyota SUVs stack up in our head-to-head comparison at Beechmont Toyota.


Performance and Fuel Economy

You can’t compare the Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner without considering the performance. Both vehicles provide the head-turning, yet reliable performance Toyota vehicles are known for, but they deliver different performance capabilities on the Mason roads.

  • Highlander: When you opt for the Highlander, you will get the choice of the 2.7L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.5L V6 engine. The 4-cylinder engine delivers an EPA-estimated 20/24 city/highway mpg* while the V6 sports 21/city and 27/highway mpg*.
  • 4Runner: Drivers will find a 4.0-Liter V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) on the 4Runner with an EPA-estimated 17/city and 20/highway mpg*.
  • Hybrid Options: If you choose the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, you will enjoy improved fuel economy, additional horsepower, and standard all-wheel drive. The 4Runner does not have a hybrid option.

When doing a performance comparison, you can’t leave out comparing the maximum towing capacity. How does the 2019 Toyota Highlander towing capacity compare against the Toyota 4Runner? Both SUVs can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Interior Features

During your Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner research, you will see some technology features overlap within the cabins. For instance, both offer Entune™ Audio Plus, a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen, and a backup camera with projected path. Even with these similarities, both SUVs make each interior uniquely their own with:

  • Highlander: Enjoy a 4.2-in. 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 in the Highlander.
