Buying a Toyota 4Runner New vs Used

If you purchase a used Toyota 4Runner that is 2 years old, then you could save $12,593 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $5,029. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used 4Runner models become available.

What About Toyota 4Runner Insurance Costs?

The average cost to insure a Toyota 4Runner is about $1,448 per year. This adds up to around $7,240 after 5 years of vehicle ownership.
