Overview
Get your family adventures going in a Toyota Highlander. Its do-anything attitude means your next favorite memory starts as soon as you get inside—and its comfortable interior means everybody stays happy. Choose from six models starting with the L and moving through the top-of-the-line Platinum. Wherever you’re headed you’ll have the power to get there—your Highlander’s 3.5-liter V-6 makes sure of that. And its 5 000-pound towing capacity makes sure everybody’s toys can come too. With three rows of seats that feel like they came from a Lexus up to eleven speakers Wi-Fi Connect and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto the journey might be more fun than the destination. And wherever you go you’ll travel with confidence—Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 sees to that. It’s standard equipment on all Highlanders. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Toyota Accessories and build a Highlander that’s all yours. The Toyota Highlander. It’s ready to go places.
Technology
The Toyota Highlander is designed to keep you connected. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility brings your smartphone to a touchscreen display. Bluetooth adds advanced voice control and audio streaming. Available Dynamic Navigation tells you the best way to get where you’re going—and shows you points of interest along the way. Available Remote Connect4 lets your smartwatch find your Highlander in a crowded parking lot. Enable the Alexa function and you can start your Highlander from your living room by saying “Alexa start my car.” The Toyota Highlander. Stay in touch with the world.
Safety
Every Toyota Highlander comes with a comprehensive set of safety features. Standard equipment includes Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 a group of driver-assist systems that use cameras and radar to scan the road ahead and to the side. If there’s a car—or pedestrian—in front of you your Highlander will slow and even come to a stop if necessary. If you start to drift out of your lane your Highlander will let you know—and take corrective action if you don’t. The Toyota Highlander. It’s safety on four wheels.
Performance
Wherever the day takes you your Toyota Highlander has the guts to get there. Its 3.5-liter V-6 generates plenty of horsepower and torque so go ahead and flex your Highlander’s muscle— it’s capable of towing up to 5 000 lbs.
