Optimizing fuel efficiency means making enhancements all over- like the trasmission and efficient engine that help to enhance EPA MPG estimates and earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle rating.
The efficient Stop and Start System is available on V6 gas-powered Highlanders. This technology shuts the engine off when Highlander is at rest- like when at a stoplight to help you save more fuel. When it's time to go, releasing the brake pedal seamlessly restarts the engine so you can effortlessly get on your way.
Some adventures are so big you have to tow them. No problem. Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000lbs.
The 2018 Highlander features an inspired front fascia with a dynamic front grille and expressive headlights, making for one bold first impression. With a unique grille tailored for each grade, there's a Highlander that perfectly matches your style.
Let's shine a light on style. Redesigned headlights now feature integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL), amplifying the 2017 Highlander's signature look. The all-new SE grade ups the excitement with its dark-black-accent headlights, while Highlander Limited Platinum has a powerful presence of its own with smoked-chrome headlight housings. Every Highlander gets all-new LED taillights for added visibility.
Highlander shows off its athletic side with a selection of available alloy wheels. The sporty Highlander SE has 19-in. multispoke alloy wheels with a machined finish.
WIth a total of five USB ports, it's easy to power up the family road trip. Three USB ports up front and two USB ports in the rear help everyone keep their favorite portable electronic devices plugged in.
Highlanders roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats. Available second-row captain's chairs help Highlander comfortably seat seven and offer the same great versatility. You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the limited grade with Platinum Package.
Waste no space. We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear. And since every journey's different, 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.
Part of enjoying the road is not to hear it. Highlander has silencing insulation materials along its floor to help keep things quiet, as well as Acoustic-type glass in the windshield to further reduce noise entering the cabin.
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.
Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough. Let the available rear-seat Blu-Ray DiscTM entertainment system help. The 9-in display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones.
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) helps to heighten your awareness on the road by alerting you when a vehicle enters a blind spot on either side. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) works similarly. When you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, it provides audible and visual indicators to warn you of approaching vehicles.
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).
Highlander’s available Bird’s Eye View Camera helps you see nearby objects and get in to and out of the smallest spaces with ease. The system includes Perimeter Scan - an innovative feature that displays live, rotating 360-degree views of your surroundings when you’re parked.
Designed to improve your drive. Highlander’s Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) works like conventional cruise control but can do even more. Using forward-facing radar technology, the system is designed to automatically adjust vehicle speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you.
