New 2016 Toyota Highlander at Peoria Toyota Scion for Peoria, IL

For 2016 the Toyota Highlander is bolder and more stylish.  The exterior has been changed a bit to reflect a modern, welcoming and pleasing take on the vehicle.  There is also an added hybrid edition that is becoming part of the lineup.  The Toyota Highlander was an original SUV and shares in the creation of the segment.  Today it remains a very popular vehicle that is known for reliability and efficiency even after all of these years.  The Highlander has vastly improved since those early days and is well positioned for the future.  The vehicle has the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds and can fit 8 people comfortably. The safety reviews are wonderful on this vehicle and it remains a truly great family option.

Under the Highlander's Hood

The base engine level for this year's Highlander is an inline 4 cylinder which is a 2.7-liter with the ability to create 185 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.  This engine gets 20 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway.  A different choice is the V-6 3.5-liter unleashing 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque.  For this setup there is a convenient choice of all-wheel drive available which really helps a lot for people living in the snow belt as well as negotiating whatever mother nature may throw at you.  The front wheel drive has fuel efficiencies of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The all-wheel drive gets 18 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway.  Toyota is more than happy to now start offering a hybrid engine in the top trim levels.  This hybrid uses the same V-6 engine along with two electric motors with the ability to provide 280 horsepower.  It certainly can run a bit higher in price but pays off because the fuel efficiency is 28 miles per gallon on the highway.

Design of Toyota Highlander

The entry level Highlander LE has a day/night rear view mirror, tilting telescoping steering wheel, three auxiliary power outlets, a 6.1-inch touch display, Bluetooth, voice recognition and lots more. You have the ability to upgrade to second row captain's chairs but you do lose the third row option, there is also upgrades to a moon roof, DVD entertainment center and zoned climate control.  The exterior has a stylish grille and a rugged look and completely reimagines the idea of a family station wagon. It is definitely a fresh face in a crowd with a great deal more character than its competitors in segment.  The Highlander interior has controls that are easy to understand and operate with many features and comforts literally within arm's reach. The center console is also spacious and can hold many different things for the family or for business.
