Highlander Highlights: Your Guide to Toyota’s New SUV

2017 Toyota Highlander

As convenient and comfortable as SUVs are, few associate them with beauty or power, but Toyota has never limited itself to common expectations. Its new Highlander offers maximum power and engine efficiency along with a sleek, sculpted exterior, all while providing the same passenger and cargo carrying capacity that sport utility vehicles are known for.

Now available at East Coast Toyota, this SUV lets you drive in style while still meeting all your family’s transit needs.

Exterior Enhancements to Bolster Beauty

One look at the Toyota Highlander makes its level of quality clear beyond any doubt. The vehicle is available in nine different colors, including Shoreline Blue Pearl, Toasted Walnut Pearl, Celestial Silver Metallic and Alumina Jade Metallic. Combined with its rounded, streamlined body and 18-inch machined alloy wheels, the Highlander immediately sends a message of power and sophistication. This impression is only further enhanced by the vehicle’s LED stop light, solar glass, halogen daytime running lights and smoked chrome headlight accents.

A Spacious Interior to Secure Passengers and Supplies

If beauty and power define the new Toyota Highlander’s exterior, comfort and convenience are key to the inside. The SUV holds up to eight, with standard fabric trim to enhance both the look and the feel of the seating. The driver’s seat offers six different adjustment options for maximum comfort, while the passengers’ seats are adjustable in four directions.

The vehicle has 13.8 cubic feet of standard cargo volume, which can be expanded to 42.3 cubic feet if you lower the seats in the third row and to 83.7 cubic feet with the second row down as well. You should have no trouble transporting any equipment for family activities.

Powerful, Efficient Performance from a Premium Powertrain

The new Toyota Highlander comes with a standard 2.7L engine, providing 185 horsepower and 184 pounds per foot of torque. This engine has an estimated fuel economy of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, respectable figures for an SUV.

The Highlander also can tow up to 1,500 pounds with rear towing installed. If this does not meet your performance or efficiency needs, consider upgrading to the available 3.5L V6 Direct Shift engine, which can tow up to 5,000 pounds, providing 21 miles per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, reducing both your fuel expenses and your ecological footprint.
