    Approx cost in the Denver region with original equipment quality part (there is a difference) would be around $1000 for all 4 with an alignment. However, its quite rare for all 4 struts to be bad on one of these cars, Toyota makes very durable struts. It's common for chain stores to recommend all 4 based on mileage, when in fact if you don't have any symptoms of ride quality, handling or unusual tire wear, you may not need struts @ all. Many chain stores install lower quality components which will bring the price down, but you may end up replacing struts much more often with the cheaper parts.
