From the ground up. That’s just how different the all-new 2020 Toyota Highlander in Janesville WI is; it was redesigned from the ground up. The Highlander entered the scene at the turn of the century, in Y2K, a midsize crossover built on the same platform as the Toyota Camry. It was big, packed with great content and every bit as versatile as a minivan, but also stylish and sophisticated. All of this can describe the all-new, fourth-generation Highlander as well.
Although it isn’t the largest vehicle on the lineup, the Highlander is the biggest crossover – as the full-size Sequoia is a traditional sport utility vehicle. That means it has to offer a way to transport a bunch of passengers, a bunch of cargo, or a combination of both. The Highlander has always delivered on that front and continues to do so in its next-generation.
The newest iteration of the Toyota Highlander is even more sophisticated and sleek than previous models. Its imposing stance and bold presence promise to draw attention as you drive down any road, but the Toyota New Global Architecture K platform that it is now built upon makes sure that stance doesn’t affect refinement negatively. Performance is enhanced by a new available Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel drive system with Driveline Disconnect and Multi-Terrain Select.
Although the engine powering the Highlander is the same as last year’s, the excess engine options have been eliminated to make choosing your Highlander an easier process. You won’t have to decide between a number of convoluted engine options, you’ll just have to decide between the gas-powered V6 or the next-generation hybrid powertrain, which has enhanced its fuel economy ratings by 17%.
Other great upgrades include standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 and the largest-in-segment 12” multimedia display that comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, Waze and Amazon Alexa compatibilities.
