The 2017 Toyota Highlander, in fact, presents a three row mid-size SUV. Although, the famous Japanese car manufacturer launched a fully redesigned variant of this vehicle the past year, we are pretty surprised by the fact that their designers opted to do the certain changes. So, the brand new variant, we’re just assuming, won’t suffer any major changes, only cosmetically ones. One fact is sure, this brand new variant will come along with a much more durable body, a stylish and highly attractive look and a powerful, much more efficient, durable and more reliable motor option. It is intended that Toyota Highlander 2017 comes in five trims, ranging from the basic to the highest trim-LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited, and Limited Platinum.
New Highlander engine and specs
The Toyota Highlander, edition for 2016 year, is planned to come along offering two engine choices. The first one is intended to be a four-cylinder engine with an overall input of approximately 185 horsepower, and the other one will, the most certain, be a V6 engine, which is considered to be just strong enough to pump up to 270 horsepower. Both of the powertrain options will be matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission and the drive will be available on all four wheels.
It is a widely known fact that the Toyota Company presents the leading company, when it comes to producing hybrid vehicles. So, according to the rumors, the new Toyota Highlander is going to have its hybrid version of a motor and we are assuming that it will be the bold combination between a mighty and utterly strong a V6 engine with an electric motor and a pack of the, pretty durable, lithium batteries.
2017 Toyota Highlander exterior and interior
Some kind of a trade mark for the 2017 Highlander is going to remain its outstanding performance. Although, this brand new variant will come with, slightly, increasing of its high-technology features, which will be, surely, of a huge help, when it comes to boosting its general appearance and performances (not to mention the Highlander’s safety and its passengers’ general entertainment).
When it comes to the core LE trim, for those you may have the certain memory issues, a quick reminder, of its standard gear: 18 inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, heated exterior mirrors, include auto on/off headlights, a cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, a rear spoiler, a 6.1 inch touchscreen combined with an iPod/USB interface with Auxiliary input and a CD player etc.
In order to avoid the further enumeration, which of the level trims possesses its own hi-tech features, overall said, there are numerous interior modifications that are characteristic for each of the five trims. Mostly, these changes include more sophisticated features, such as: a blind spot monitoring, an electric steering matched with a heated seats, a rear cross traffic, a pre-collision system and that’s alike.
