Highlander Overview

Highlander Features

Highlander's New Exterior - Style that Makes you Smile

Athletic, yet sleek and stylish

The all-new Highlander was redesigned with excitement in mind. From the larger grille and dramatic front end to the aerodynamic roof rails, Highlander gets you there in style.

Chromtec® wheels

Even the wheels are redesigned. Highlander Limited gets a new look with 19-in. Chromtec® wheels, XLE and LE Plus have unique machined-face 5-spoke alloys, and LE gets a new 18-in. 5-spoke alloy wheel.

Highlander redesigned front grille

Redesigned front grille

Highlander gets a dramatic new look with a larger, aggressive grille that allows for more airflow, while the available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) give it added style and visibility.

Aerodynamic roof rails

These aren't your typical roof rails. Highlander's Chromtec® roof rails are integrated, which means when you aren't using them to carry your accessories, they still look sleek. And because they are integrated, they add to the aerodynamics and minimize the noise coming from overhead.

Highlander's Interior - Made to Multitask

Ergonomic dashboard

The dashboard gets touched a lot. That's why we made it with softer materials that are easier on your fingers. It also gets looked at a lot, so we added metallic accents and available wood-grain details to please the eyes.

Smart storage compartments

A spot for all your gadgets and accessories. This handy in-dash shelf gives you easy access to the power and USB ports, 9 keeping cables neatly stowed away.

Heated and ventilated front seats

Highlander offers available heated and ventilated front seats with heaters and fans right inside your seat, keeping you comfortable no matter the weather. You can also keep your hands warm on chilly days with the heated steering wheel available with the Platinum Package.

Accent-color seat stitching

When redesigning the Highlander interior, we didn't leave anything out. Take a closer look at the all-new seats, and you'll notice this distinctive seat stitching that adds visual contrast and unique style..

Oversize roll-top center console

Everything in its place. The roll-top center console is an armrest and a storage spot, with easy access to a massive compartment for large purses, bags, cameras and other items that may end up out of reach.

Toyota Highlander Crossover- Versatility Share the Adventure

Seating for up to 8

Let more people in on the adventure. Highlander's roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats.

Highlander interior - sunroof, 7-passenger seating

Panoramic moonroof

In-seat entertainment for everyone. Your passengers have the whole sky to entertain them, thanks to the available panoramic moonroof that is part of the Platinum Package.

7-passenger seating

With available second-row captain's chairs, Highlander comfortably seats seven. Walk between the captain's chairs, or use a lever that tilts and slides the second-row seats forward, to easily access the third row. You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the Limited grade with Platinum Package.

Leather power driver's seat

Settle right in. Highlander's available leather-trimmed, heated 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power thigh support and lumbar support gives you maximum comfort on all your journeys.

Highlander SUV - Interior Versatility - Fits your Life

Adjustable power liftgate

This available feature allows you to open the rear liftgate and adjust how high it opens with the press of a button. If you have a garage with low clearance or a covered parking spot, you know how much this matters..

Flip-up rear hatch window

No need to open the entire liftgate to quickly grab something small. Just use the available flip-up rear hatch window for easy access.

Third-row versatility

Every journey's different, and Highlander is there to adapt. Sometimes you've got lots of people, lots of gear, or a mix of both. The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.

Increased cargo space

Waste no space. We redesigned the rear suspension of Highlander, creating more space in the cargo area for your gears.

Highlander Utility - Detailed-oriented interior

Easy in/easy out

Busy days mean getting in and out of your vehicle a lot. Let's make it easier. We started by adjusting the cushion height, creating more room between the seat and the roofline of Highlander.

Rear-seat entertainment system

Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough. Let the available Blu-ray Disc™ rear-seat entertainment system help. The 9-in. display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones

Bluetooth connectivity

Every highlander display audio system comes with bluefooth connectivity, which allows you to tmake hands free calls. it also let you stream music from your protable mp3 player or compatible smartphone to your highlander's audio systems, wirelessly.

Conversation mirror

Keep the discussion going with the standard conversation mirror located above the rearview mirror. It allows you to quickly glance back to those in the rear seats, and as an added bonus, it also conceals a storage compartment for sunglasses.

Quiet Interior

Part of enjoying the road is to not hear it. That's why we increased the silencing insulation material along the floor of Highlander. We also used acoustic-type glass in the windshield to reduce noise entering the cabin.

Highlander Performance - Another Adventure Awaits

Fun to drive

There are many things that make Highlander fun to drive. But technically it's the redesigned double-wishbone rear suspension, enhanced handling and ride comfort.

Available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive

When the road gets adventurous, Highlander embraces it with available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD). It distributes engine power from front to rear and manages the vehicle's braking system from side to side, giving you better control. Highlander Hybrid Limited has Electronic On-Demand AWD with intelligence (AWD-i).

Available 5000-lb. towing capacity

Some adventures are so big you have to tow them. No problem. Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000 lbs

Engine Performance

4-cylinder engine

Highlander's 4-cylinder engine squeezes the most performance out of every mile and every gallon. It surprises with 185 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, yet still manages an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

V6 Engine

Wherever the day takes you, you have the power to get there. Highlander's available V6 engine generates 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, offering up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway for FWD models

6-speed transmission

Highlander's 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission (ECT) with intelligence is responsive, yet responsible. The transmission has been redesigned for a better overall drive with impressive acceleration and reduced fuel consumption.

Improved MPG

Improving fuel efficiency means making enhancements all over. Like the transmission and efficient engine that help to enhance EPA mpg estimates and earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV-II) rating.

Efficiency - Hybrid technology

Hybrid Synergy Drive®

The Hybrid Synergy Drive® system in Hybrid Limited combines an efficient 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor to produce 280 hybrid system net horsepower. At the same time, Hybrid Limited offers an impressive EPA-estimated 27 city and 28 highway mpg 2 and carries a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) rating.

Hybrid power meter

Hybrid Limited both generates and uses electric power-and you can see how much with the hybrid system power meter. It lets you know when the system is charging and also shows you electric power consumption.

ECO and EV Modes

In ECO Mode, Highlander Hybrid modifies throttle response to help with fuel economy and can also help when you're slowly accelerating on low-traction surfaces such as snow or ice. EV Mode 23 uses only the electric motor for situations where you're driving at low speeds for short distances, such as in a parking garage.

Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle

Green trees. Blue sky. We'd all like to help keep it that way-which is why Hybrid Limited's engine carries a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (SULEV-II) rating

Energy Monitor

Hybrid Synergy Drive® will seek the most efficient power source, be it electric motor, gasoline engine or a combination of both. With the energy monitor display, you'll be able to see the current operating mode.

Safety Protection to all

IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus

Exciting to drive and help keep you safe. Highlander and Highlander Hybrid have been recognized for their high levels of safety by being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus when equipped with an available pre-collision system. 24 Both vehicles not only are designed to help protect you in a crash, but also to help you avoid one. Because every adventure should be a safe one.

Highlander features the Star Safety System™, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).

Ventilated disc brakes

When brakes get too hot, they can become less effective. It's called brake fade, and it's a surprise no driver wants. To help prevent it, Highlander's front brakes use a ventilated disc design, which helps to dissipate heat and ensure confidence in the vehicle's stopping power.

8 Airbags - Advanced Airbag System

An Advanced Airbag System helps protect you and your family with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat-cushion airbag and Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) for all rows.

Tire Pressure Monitor System

A Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) 29 comes standard on every Highlander. Designed to monitor tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become critically underinflated and is one more way Highlander helps keep you safe.

ToyotaCare - Peace of mind

Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That's why we include ToyotaCare, a no cost maintenance plan and roadside assistance with the purchase or lease of every new Toyota. For two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, you and your new Highlander will be covered.
