 What's New for the 2017 Toyota Highlander?

The Toyota Highlander has been Toyota’s strong and reliable contender in the mid-size SUV segment since 2000, when it was first introduced. While in those early years, it saw regular yearly upgrades, the current generation of the Highlander has run since 2013 without major changes until now. Not that this has been necessary, as it has carved itself out a spot as one of the top three best-selling mid-size SUVs in America. Having hit on a winning formula, Toyota has been reluctant to make radical changes to the Highlander. Even after this year’s major update, the 2017 Toyota Highlander remains very similar to its 2016 predecessor, focusing on smaller tweaks designed to keep the Highlander ahead of its competitors. The 2017 Toyota Highlander brings small styling changes to the model to keep it modern and relevant, an upgraded V-6 engine, additional standard safety features and two new lower-priced trim lines for the Highlander Hybrid, expanding its market appeal.

The stylistic changes made to the exterior of the Highlander are fairly low-key. The headlights and taillights became a little more visually compact, while the gille grew wider and now reaches all the way down to the bottom bumper, for a more aggressive appearance. The color also changes depending on the trim line of the car, with the sportier models featuring a blacked-out grille, while the luxury ones get chrome plating. The interior also maintains the same general shape as in 2016, with a few small alterations. There are now four USB ports in the center console, making it easier to charge or connect all of your mobile devices, and the middle row bench is now available as an option on the luxury models of the 2017 Highlander, adding to their versatility, though the captain’s chairs remain the standard layout. The changes to the Highlander’s V-6 engine are more notable. It gains 25 horsepower over last year, bringing it up to 295 horsepower total, while at the same time gaining 2 miles per gallon in efficiency, for a new rating of 21 mpg in the city, 27 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. Making excellent use of the added power is the new sporty Highlander SE model, which gets its own distinctive interior and exterior styling as well as a tightened suspension for better performance. The Highlander Hybrid also gets two new models: the LE and XLE. Previously only available as a high end Limited or Limited Platinum model, it is now possible to get a Highlander Hybrid in roughly the same range as the gas-powered Highlander. Regardless of the model you choose however, all Highlanders are now equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense suite as standard equipment, which means you get access to forward collision warning, dynamic cruise control and emergency automated braking free of charge across the whole lineup.
