With 2014 models landing on dealership lots Toyota just announced pricing for two of its utility vehicles, the redesigned 4Runner and its versatile Tacoma compact pickup truck.
The fifth-generation 4Runner is a capable midsize sport utility vehicle. Like SUVs of years past it features an old-school body-on-frame architecture for maximum ruggedness and off-road capability. Drivers can choose between either rear- or four-wheel drive.
Base price for an entry-level 4×2 SR5 model is $32,820, while the 4×4 stickers for $34,695. Both figures represent a 4 percent increase ($1,330) compared to their respective outgoing versions.
The range-topping 4Runner Limited kicks off at $41,365 in two-wheel-drive format, while the off road-ready four-wheeler starts at $43,400. These models are 6 percent pricier ($2,370) than today’s offerings.
Splitting the difference between SR5 and Limited versions is the Trail model. Unlike its siblings prices have actually gone down by $1,430, or 4 percent. A 4×4 model starts at $35,725 while a premium version goes for $38,645.
All models are powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 270 horsepower. A five-speed automatic is the only transmission offered.
The 2014 Toyota Tacoma is priced to sell. A 4×2 regular-cab model starts at $17,875. That gets you a four-cylinder engine and a five-speed-manual transmission.
However, if you go whole hog and pick up a 4×4 V6 Double Cab long-bed version with an automatic plan on spending $28,285. Across-the-board price increases for the Tacoma average 100 bucks.
All figures listed above EXCLUDE destination and delivery fees, which are $860.
