Toyota has announced pricing on its facelifted 2014 4Runner. The rough-and-tumble SUV will be available in three grades: base SR5, upmarket Limited and off-road-ready Trail. Depending on the trim level, buyers will have the choice of rear-drive or one of two different four-wheel drive systems. The sole engine is Toyota's 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6.

Entry-level buyers can get an SR5 for $32,820. That includes 17-inch wheels, fabric seats and Toyota's Entune infotainment system. Adding four-wheel drive bumps the price by $2,920, while the Premium Package (SofTex faux leather seats, navigation, sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors and power passenger seat) adds $1,875. All model prices listed do not include $860 for destination and tax.

The Trail starts at $35,725, while the Trail Premium bumps the price to $38,645, adding the same suite of equipment found on the SR5. While it boasts the same standard equipment as the SR5, the Trail is better suited for going off road. A multi-terrain response system comes standard, as does hill-start assist and Toyota's Crawl Control. For an extra sum, buyers can opt for the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which automatically disconnects the sway bars for better articulation and trail holding.

Buyers of the Limited, which starts at $41,365, have the choice of a more capable full-time four-wheel-drive system with a locking center differential, in addition to the standard rear-drive model. Toyota's X-REAS suspension is the big item, as it promises a more refined ride on the Limited model. Toyota's SmartKey is standard, as is park distance control, a JBL stereo with Entune, Toyota's Safety Connect telematics system, dual-zone climate control and leather seats. Both the SR5 and Limited can be had with a fold-flat third row.

Toyota has also squeaked in some updated pricing on its 2014 Tacoma pickup, which starts at $17,875 for a base 4x2 Regular Cab four-cylinder model with manual transmission and ranges up to $28,285 for the 4x4 Double Cab Long Bed with V6 and a five-speed automatic.

Have a look at the official presser from Toyota shown below for the full run-down on both models.

Toyota Announces Pricing for 2014 4Runner Mid-Size SUV and Tacoma Compact Pickup Truck

TORRANCE, Calif., September 3, 2013 - - Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc. today announced 2014 manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the redesigned 4Runner mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV) and the Tacoma compact pickup truck. Both vehicles will begin arriving at Toyota dealerships this month.

4Runner
Currently In its fifth-generation, 4Runner continues as one of the few fully capable mid-size SUVs. The redesigned 2014 4Runner receives a rugged new exterior design, and interior refinements that add comfort and convenience without sacrificing its hallmark performance capability and excellent value.

The 4Runner combines rugged body-on-frame construction with comprehensive suspension technology that yields optimal off-road capability with a smooth ride and comfort more often associated with crossovers. The 2014 4Runner is available in three grades: a well-equipped, value-driven SR5; top-of-the-line Limited, and a Trail grade for those who want maximum off-road capability. Optional third-row seats on SR5 and Limited allow for up to seven-person capacity.

4Runner owners will have the choice of a rear wheel 4x2, part-time 4x4 or a full-time multi-mode 4x4 with a locking center differential. All models are equipped with a powerful 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6 teamed to a five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission and one of the few vehicles that continues offer a transfer case.

The refreshed 4Runner features a redesigned front fascia that conveys a more rugged and aggressive appearance. This includes a muscular front grille, and edgier smoked headlamps for a more forceful look. The headlights have also been changed from halogen to projector beam and the redesigned rear combination lamps now feature LED lights. The SR5 and Trail grades feature a color-keyed grille insert and front bumper that is surrounded by fog lamps set in sharply cut inlays that extend from the headlamps down to the bumper.

The Trail grade features new color-keyed bumpers and overfenders, and it continues to be distinguished by an aggressive hood scoop and silver painted front and rear bumper accents. All grades are now standard with a roof rack.

In addition to the distinctive new grille, the premium Limited's front design stands apart with a chrome-plated grille insert and chrome front bumper that extends to the fog-lamp bezels. The side molding, roof rack and rear bumper are also chrome trimmed.

Both the SR5 and Trail grades will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels with a new and unique wheel-design to both, while the Limited continues to ride on 20-inch alloy wheels, which are now painted black prior to machining to add contrast. All grades continue to come standard with a full-size spare.

The 2014 4Runner adds four new exterior colors that include: Super White; Attitude Black Metallic; Barcelona Red Metallic; and Nautical Blue Metallic. Carryover colors include: Blizzard Pearl; Classic Silver Metallic; Magnetic Gray Metallic; and Black.

The 4Runner exterior updates are complemented by touches of refinement on the inside. Both the SR5 and Trail grade add standard Soft Touch door trim, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather shift knob provide a premium feel and atmosphere.

The SR5 receives a new bright and highly visible Optitron instrument panel that houses speedometer, tachometer, voltage, fuel and coolant temperature gauges, plus a multi-information display that offers multiple functions. An Eco-Driving feedback system allows the driver to monitor fuel consumption in real time. On 4Runner Trail, an overhead console within easy reach organizes the off-road control switches into one location. A compass indicator and outside temperature display add functionality. A manually controlled air conditioning system is standard on SR5 and Trail grades; the Limited features an automatic dual-zone climate-control system.

For second-row passengers, a sculpted front seat-back shape provides additional knee space. The second-row seats, which include a center armrest, individually recline up to 16 degrees in four steps for relaxing passenger comfort. The 40/20/40 second-row seat configuration also has a one-touch walk-in function, making access to the third row easier. Third-row seating is available on SR5 and Limited grades and features a roomy, supportive seating area.

The SR5 and Trail grade come standard with comfortable fabric-trimmed seating available in Sand Beige, Graphite or Black. Available SofTex seats offer a soft, rich feel. New for 2014, the SR5 adds a standard eight-way power driver seat.

The Limited comes standard with a leather-trimmed interior with new ventilated driver and front passenger seats in Sand Beige, Black and a new Redwood color. Front seats are also heated with eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory function and power lumbar support and four-way power-adjustable passenger seat.

New for 2014 on SR5 and Trail grade 4Runner models is Entune™ Audio Plus, which includes Toyota's Entune multimedia system, an AM/FM/MP3 CD player with eight speakers, integrated SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio (includes 90-day trial subscription), USB port with iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth® hands-free phone capability and music streaming.

Standard on the Limited grade is the new Entune Premium JBL Audio system, which incorporates today's most in-demand connectivity features. It includes the Entune multimedia system, a JBL® premium sound system with navigation, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (with a 90-day trial subscription), HD Radio with iTunes® tagging and 15 speakers.

Entune is a collection of popular mobile applications and data services, with three years of complimentary access. Once a smart phone is connected to the vehicle using Bluetooth wireless technology or a USB cable, Entune's features are operated using the vehicle's controls or, for some services, by voice recognition. Entune offers mobile apps for Bing™, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, Pandora®, Yelp, and Facebook Places. Entune data services include a fuel price guide, sports scores, stocks, traffic and weather.

New SR5 and Trail Premium grades are available with added standard equipment including SofTex seats, Entune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite, power tilt/slide moonroof, power passenger seats, electrochromatic mirror, Homelink® Garage Door Opener, and 120V AC in the cargo area.

With the addition of an array of additional standard equipment, including formerly optional equipment that is now standard, 4Runner maintains its excellent value.

The MSRP for the 4Runner Trail 4x4 is $35,725, reflecting a price decrease of $1,430, or 4.0 percent. The new Trail Premium grade is priced at $38,645.

The MSRP for the 2014 4Runner SR5 will be $32,820 for the 4x2 model and $34,695 for the 4x4, an increase of $1,330, or 4.0 percent. The new SR5 Premium grade will be priced at $35,740 for the 4x2 and $37,615 for the 4x4.

The 4Runner Limited will carry an MSRP of $41,365 for the 4x2 and $43,400 for the 4x4, an increase of $2,370, or 6.0 percent.

Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma, the best-selling compact pickup truck in the U.S. market, offers a sporty new SR appearance package for 2014, along with four levels of Entune® Audio. In conjunction with the Entune upgrade, the backup camera display has been moved from the rear-view mirror to the Entune head unit display. The Tacoma X-Runner sport truck is discontinued for 2014.

The new SR Package, available for the Tacoma PreRunner and 4x4 Access Cab base grade models, lends a sporty look with a color-keyed exterior appearance upgrade, including overfenders, door handles, bumpers, grille surround and mirrors, plus smoked headlight lenses. Models with the V6 engine also get fog lights with the SR package.

Tacoma offers two new exterior colors for 2014, Silver Sky Metallic and Blue Ribbon Metallic.
Tacoma maintains its excellent value as it adds the updated Entune Audio sytem with minimal price changes.

The MSRP for the 2014 Tacoma will range from $17,875 for the Regular Cab 4x2 with a four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission to $28,285 for the Double Cab 4x4 V6 Long Bed with a five-speed automatic. The new pricing reflects an average increase of $100, or 0.4 percent.

Toyota 4Runner and Tacoma MSRPs do not include a delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee of $860. The DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States Toyota (GST) may vary.

      To me, this design looks older than the one it replaces. And that starting price is just ridiculous.

          I agree with both points you guys are trying to make. Went to the fair the other day and checked out the Ford display. (I drove one back in the late 90\'s in high school that used to belong to my mother.) I was floored that the display model was over $42K. Maybe I\'ve have blinders on for the decade, but the starting prices for most of the \"affordable\" models is out of control!

        Not really a competitor to the 4-Runner.

          So is a CrossTour. BTW, the 4-runner can seat 7. Using your argument, the FIAT 500L Trekking edition would suit your needs.

        Why do you people keep comparing this to the unibody Grand Cherokee? It is NOT a competitor to a 4-runner. The Wranger Unlimited is the closest.

          Very true. On the other hand give a Toyota frame a few years to rust and then it comes close.

          That frame won't rot. I know people think they're adding lots of substance to Toyota truck articles saying they're going to rot because they had an issue with vehicles manufactured a decade ago, but you're not.

          The Grand Cherokee absolutely is a competitor to the 4Runner, particularly to the SR5 and Limited editions. Both are 4-door SUVs with some offroad capability. The Wrangler Unlimited is really in a different category. It is more capable offroad, due to better angles. But its solid front axle means it absolutely sucks on road.

          zoom: I currently drive an '03 4Runner with 135k miles on it. If I were to replace it tomorrow, I would be looking at the new 4Runner and at the Jeep Grand Cherokee. I absolutely would not be looking at the Grand Cherokee. If you head over to toyota-4runner.org, you will see threads comparing the 4Runner to the Grand Cherokee. You won't see threads comparing it to the Wrangler Unlimited.

        I just bought my first Chrysler, a Jeep GC. I love it! Man what a smooth ride. Drives well too. Excellent gas mileage, blew me away. I can go nearly two weeks on a tank of gas. I was nervous purchasing because I know Chrysler history, however, so far so good. Is it perfect? Nope. But it does a lot well.

        Then buy a Wrangler unlimited Rubicon, or maybe a Pro-4x Xterra. Only other 4 door options for a 4 door SUV with real off road capability.

      Why why why is Toyota so afraid of actually providing meaningful updates to their vehicles? Seriously, the same 4.0L that's been in use since the dinosaurs roamed the earth? Ridiculous. And just to prove that they weren't done uglying and plasticing up the 4Runner during the last time around, they added even more ugly. Ugh...death by a thousand cuts for Toyota it seems like.

        I don't either. To think everyone "hated" the current model when it came out, I still see plenty of those and I don't really hear much hate for that design anymore.
