Toyota has just released the pricing for the 2013 Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, Tundra and FJ Cruiser. Along with the prices are some nice updates.

The Toyota 4Runner is a body-on-frame SUV with three rows of seating. This is a serious truck with a very tough, powerful, heavy and hence fuel-thirsty four-wheel drive system. For 2013, the four-wheel dirve transfer-case on the SR5 model is now activated by a button instead of with a lever. This makes it more modern in feel. Drivers will likely appreciate this civilizing touch. The USB port is also now more accesible as it is relocated from the glove compartment to the center stack. Prices range from $31,340 for the SR5 4×2 to $40,880 for the Limited grade 4×4.

For 2013 the Highlander hybrid gets navigation as standard. Unfortunately, pricing for 2013 will jump significantly. The base model is $39,970 and prices can reach$46,170 for the Limited grade. The prices have gone up by an avergage of over $1,500. Considering how much automakers charge for built-in navigation, this is almost palatable.
Prices are also noticeably higher for the non-hybrid Highlanders. Starting at $28,870 for the front-wheel-drive, inline-four model and climb to $39,250 for the Highlander Limited all-wheel drive V6. Prices climb an average of more than $1,000.

The Sequoia is massive. This huge vehicle is based on the Tundra pickup and is a three-row SUV. Being aggressively styled it is perfect for families who abhor minivans which is probably why Toyota has chosen this vehicle to debut an industry-first Blue-ray rear seat video system.

All 2013 Sequoias now use the 381-hp 5.7-liter V8 since the the 310-hp 4.6-liter V8 has been discontinued. Upgrading the engine to the larger V8 cost $625 on the 2012 model. Prices across the line have increased by $580 on average. The 2013 Sequoia has prices starting at $41,955 for the SR5 4×2 to $62,570 for the Platinum 4×4.

Prices for the Sequoias’s sibling, the Tundra pickup, are slightly increasing since 2012. The 2013 MSRP is $25,355 for the Tundra 4×2 Regular Cab with a 4 liter V6 and climb to $43,795 for the Limited CrewMax 4×4 5.7-liter V8.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is designed to go off-road. It has been around since 2007 and since it competes with the Jeep Wrangler, which rarely updates itself, changes to the FJ are equally few and far between. For 2013 all FJ Cruisers now use daytime running lights as standard. They also feature power mirrors with integrated lights. This is essentially making an option that most people want, a piece of standard equipment. Prices have increased an average of $765 across the FJ Cruiser lineup. The 2013 MSRP starts at$26,880 for the 4×2 model with a $28,470 for the 4×4.
