What Makes the 2018 Toyota Highlander Special

February 16th, 2018 by

If you’re thinking about buying an SUV, it’s no surprise the 2018 Toyota Highlander is on your radar. It’s been completely redesigned for the 2017 model year, and that carries over. But more than just its looks set it apart from the competition. The Toyota Highlander has more power, more features, and more safety than ever.

What’s New for the Toyota Highlander

Higher Power Production

A 2.7-liter 4-cylinder model is available with the Highlander LE trim, but the real story is the new 3.5-liter 6-cylinder with direct injection. This incredible improvement boosts the Toyota Highlander’s power to 295 horsepower and 263 lb.-ft. of torque, making it more capable than ever. Properly equipped, the Highlander can tow up to 5,000 pounds thanks to its strong, effective 8-speed automatic transmission. A highly-efficient AWD system is optional also!

More Features

You get more for your money in the Highlander. Standard equipment includes Entune audio with a 6.1-inch screen, 18-inch alloy wheels, seating for up to eight people, heated mirrors, and an integrated backup camera.  Available options include leather seats, heated front seats, a moonroof, Entune Premium Audio, and a Blu-Ray DVD rear seat entertainment system. You’ll have everything you need and more.

Increased Safety

Safety is more important than ever in the vehicle you choose. That’s why every Toyota Highlander comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense – P as standard equipment. Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Automatic High Beams are features you’ll find in each and every Highlander trim level.

It goes further yet. On the XLE grade and higher, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross traffic Alert is standard equipment. Choose the Highlander Limited Platinum for Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, showing you anything that might be in your way around your Highlander.
