The Toyota Highlander is a mid-size crossover SUV that was released by Toyota in 2000. It is also known as the Toyota Kluger in certain markets.
As a mid-size crossover SUV, the Highlander comes in a 5-door layout with either front-wheel or four-wheel drive. It is built on the GA-K platform, the same one used for the current Toyota RAV4.
It was Toyota’s best-selling SUV model before it was beaten out by the RAV4 in 2006.
There have been four generations of the Highlander in total, with the newest fourth generation being released in 2019. Each new iteration was released roughly six years after its predecessor, with the exception of the second generation being released seven years after the first generation.
Powertrains for the fourth generation Highlander include a 2.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 and 3.5-liter V6. There is also a 2.5-liter inline-4 hybrid variant.
Transmission for the Highlander includes an 8-speed Direct Shift gearbox, as well as an eCVT for hybrid models.
There have been five trim levels for the Highlander over the years. These have consisted of the base L, LE, XLE, and the premium Platinum. Some models also came with the Special Edition (SE) trim option, which gave the Highlander more of an offroad focus.
Typical engine options for older generations range from 2.4-liter inline-4s to 3.5-liter V6s. There has never been a diesel variant of the Highlander.
The fourth generation Highlander has received an update every year since its release in 2019. These have ranged from updated trim lines to new engine options.
