Spacious, Capable, and Versatile: The Toyota Highlander
The midsize Toyota Highlander has room to seat seven or eight passengers, making it a great choice for those with larger families or groups of friends. It gets better than average fuel economy and comes with a long list of standard features. With five models featuring traditional gas engines and three hybrid trims, there are plenty of ways to configure your Highlander, even before you look at options, packages, and accessories. The Highlander consistently receives high honors as well.
The most recent Highlander offers an all-new 3.5-liter V6 with direct injection to give you brisker acceleration and you can boost its efficiency with the Stop and Start Engine System. Unsurprisingly, this SUV offers all-wheel drive, but in the case of the Highlander, it is Dynamic Torque Control AWD, an improved system that distributes power and manages braking side to side. The Highlander is tough enough to take you camping or bring a boat along thanks to its 5,000-pound towing capacity. Don’t forget that the Highlander also comes standard with the latest driver assistive features courtesy of Toyota Safety Sense.

Toyota Highlander History
The 2001 Toyota Highlander was the first model and was only offered in two trims with two rows of seats. It combined the features people loved of minivans, SUVs, and station wagons and came standard with air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, and a CD player. Optional amenities included heated front seats, a moonroof, leather seats, keyless entry, and three-zone automatic climate control. This first-generation model had 155 horsepower or 220 horses depending on the engine. 2004 saw a mid-generation refresh with a new grille, redesigned headlights, an available third row, and a 5-speed automatic. The Highlander Hybrid arrived for the 2006 model year, as did a Sport trim. The second generation arrived in 2007 with a larger size and more power.
