When it comes to picking your favorite car from a full lineup of outstanding Toyota models, the decision will be far from easy. However, when deciding on which Toyota dealership to turn to for an extensive selection, choosing Toyota of Rock Hill couldn’t be easier. That’s because we make finding vehicles quick and easy!

So, when it comes to deciding on whether the 2018 Toyota Highlander or the 2018 Toyota 4Runner is a better fit, we also know there’s a lot of things to consider. That’s why we’ve come up with a quick list of 4 different areas in which they have different features to help you decide.

Capability & Capacity

One of the top reasons to decide on one of these top models over the other, as with any large crossover or SUV, is cargo space, capability and capacity.

Both of these models have different seating capacities, and cargo space despite their apparent similar size.  For example, the 2018 4Runner, in its 3-row midsize SUV model, can only seat up to 7 passengers. While the 2018 Highlander, although it is classified as a 3-row mid-size crossover, can seat up to 8 passengers.

That’s because it all comes down to platform and construction for these vehicles. The Toyota Highlander shares a sedan-based body, which can be easier to maneuver, while the Toyota 4Runner is built on a more rugged truck body.

For those wanting to choose which one is better, it honestly comes down to preference. Some drivers prefer the comfort and space of the Highlander, while other prefer the 2018 4Runner’s legendary off-road capability. One of the best ways to know for sure is to test-drive the 2018 Toyota Highlander and the 2018 Toyota 4Runner for yourself now at Toyota of Rock Hill.


Performance is another very important factor in deciding on one Toyota model over the other. The 2018 Toyota Highlander comes equipped with your choice of a 185-horsepower 2.7-liter 4-cylinder or a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine!

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner comes standard with a 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 paired with a 5- speed automatic transmission on the SR5, SR5 Premium, Limited, TRD Off Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, and TRD Pro. All trims are also capable of a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds.

In terms of fuel economy, the 2018 Highlander can deliver up to an EPA-estimated 27 MPG highway, while the 2018 4Runner can deliver up to 20 MPG highway.

Head To Head On Safety

Although, we would like to say that there is a huge difference here, Toyota does a great job of equipping all of its models with award-winning safety features. Both the 2018 Toyota Highlander and the 2018 4Runner come standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense™ P, a suite of innovative features that are available at your fingertips when you need them most. This suite includes features like Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and Smart Stop Technology.

Other standard and available features include:

  • Backup camera
  • Blind spot monitor
  • Hill Start Assist Control
  • Downhill Assist Control
  • Safety Connect
  • Rear Parking Assist Sonar
