Hi everyone,

I am reaching out to the owners of 2014 4Runners. Just trying to see what people are getting for mpg. Seems that the 2014 highlander and 2014 4runner could be very comparable?

thanks,

I have a 2014 Toyota 4 Runner SR5 - 2WD. The best I've seen is 21.65 mph. Mostly highway driving. Not sure what a 4WD would get.

We have a new 2014 4Runner Trail Edition (TE) with KDSS and new Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires in the stock size (aggressive tread pattern for off-road use).

So far, mileage has ranged from a low of 17 (lots of off-roading in low range) to a high of 19, almost 20 on the freeway at 70-80 mph. I anticipate that the mileage may get slightly better as the engine breaks in, but I don't expect much improvement--maybe 20-21.

4Runners are body-on-frame TRUCKS, while the highlander is more of a car-based station wagon with AWD.

MPG is not so great on these from what I've read. But, you have an SUV, so it seems that's to be expected. Full sized F150s are getting about the same now, 4 door Supercrew. I do like a full frame.

18 mpg

2015 4runner SR5 premium 4x4, stock tires @ 35 psi
18 - 19 mpg so far, dry roads driver only mostly.
I suspect the highlander may do a little better as it is not a "full frame" SUV

2014 sr5

We have 23,000 miles on our 2014 SR5 4x4 that averages at best 18.0 to 18.2. I do baby the thing. It is running stock all weather tires. I've actually never had the thing in 4X4 except for a bit in Oklahoma do some snow. Just got back from a trip from north of Louisville, KY to OKC which is about 1,680 out and back. The vehicle was on cruse the entire time with interstate speeds at 73, except in Oklahoma where speeds were 78. I tried to keep the tach less than 2,500 rpm most of the trip. This is highly disappointing. :frown:

its not that big but its heavy

per Motor trend:
2014 4runner
Weights: gross vehicle weight (lbs): 6,100, published curb weight (lbs): 4,400, gross trailer weight braked (lbs): 4,700, payload allowance (lbs): 1,700, Manufacturer’s own, 2,767 and 2,132

gross vehicle weight is with fuel and occupants, real world weight approaching six thousand pounds. this is a full frame SUV, fuel MPG expectations ? why ? can you imagine what a 5.7L sequoia is getting on MPG ???

Here are my mpgs, you may have to click on the fuelly link and convert to mpgs there from L/100 kms (Canada). BTW fuelly's a great site to keep track of your fuel related stats and miles driven etc. I'd guess the 3.5L Highlander would get 10% better FE.

I first posted on this thread over a year ago--May, 2014. Our 2014 T4R TE with KDSS now has over 10K miles on it, but the mileage hasn't improved noticeably. It still gets about 19 mpg, but has gotten up to 20 on a road trip (whoopee!). I've added sliders, an RCI front skid plate, and a 2.5" lift--none of which improved the mileage--no surprise. But, it's a MUCH more capable off-roader now, which is what we bought the thing for.


We've since added a 2015 Highlander LP to the garage. It gets somewhat better mileage: 21-23 mpg.
