2016 Toyota Highlander Design

The Highlander proves that family vehicles can have an athletic design. The aggressive grille is bold to boost style while improving airflow. Help with visibility with the eye-catching LED daytime running lights or integrate some Chromtec roof rails to make life easier. Families will truly appreciate the available power liftgate and the adjusted seat cushion height that makes it easier to get into or out of the Highlander.

Toyota Highlander Interior

The three rows of seats in the Highlander provide seating for up to eight passengers if you go with a bench seat instead of captain’s chairs in the second row. Depending on the trim level, you can enjoy a heated second row, panoramic moonroof, or rear-seat entertainment, perfect for long car rides. Regardless of the trim you select, the Highlander has a quiet interior with the ability to fold the 60/40 third-row seat flat for more cargo space.

Toyota Highlander Performance

Maximize fuel economy with the 4-cylinder engine that generates 185 horsepower and a torque of 184 pound-feet while maintaining 20 mpg in the city* and 25 on the highway*.

Don’t forget to consider Dynamic Torque-Control AWD for tough terrain or rainy days in Louisiana.
