The Toyota Highlander debuted in 2001 as the fifth model in Toyota’s SUV lineup. The Highlander was an early example of a crossover vehicle -- an SUV based on a car rather than a truck platform. The design delivers carlike on-road handling, ride comfort and easy entry rather than off-road ability. Early Highlanders had two rows that would seat five, but by 2004 an available third row increased seating capacity to seven. When the third-generation Highlander arrived for 2014, maximum seating increased to eight thanks to a wider third row. Still, today’s Highlander trails key competitors in critical areas such as rear passenger and cargo room, as well as tech features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone interfaces.
Large Family vehicles seat six or more occupants in three rows.
Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
