A Buyer’s Guide to the New 2021 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander is the SUV to measure all others with for the 2021 model year. With its impressive array of drive-enhancing features, slick style, and ample space, the 2021 Highlander is prepared for any trip you and your favorite people can throw at it.

Stellar Space

The 2021 Toyota Highlander is a three-row SUV that offers you and your family enough space to take on your travels with style. The Highlander seats either eight passengers or seven if you choose a model with the second-row captain’s chairs. Behind the third row, you’ll find a large truck-sized cargo space of about 16 cubic feet. With the rear row folded, this increases to 48.4 cubic feet. If you need the maximum amount of cargo volume, the Highlander offers up to 84.3 cubic feet of space with both the rear rows folded.

Powerful Performance

Rather than make you work up through trim levels for muscle like other models might require of you, the 2021 Highlander gives it to you up front. Each gasoline-exclusive model comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that punches out 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. Even the hybridize Highlander offers 243 net horsepower with its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motors. Choose the all-new XSE trim for access to the sport-tuned suspension system. Opt for a model equipped with the dynamic torque vectoring all-wheel drive for a greater level of traction on rough and slick roads.

Next-Level Safety

To ensure you stay on the road safely in your Highlander, Toyota has made many of its advanced driver-assist technologies standard. These include the game-changing pre-collision assist system with low-light pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and a lane-departure alert with steering assist. If you want to make your Highlander even more of a co-pilot, choose a model outfitted with the available blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

Tech Appeal

The 2021 Highlander also gives you access to some connective and entertaining tech worth checking out. A touch-screen display comes standard on every model, as do Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Allow the whole cabin to stay connected on the go with the available Wi-Fi hot spot. Keep their devices charged with the five USB ports and two 12-volt outlets. Give your SUV a concert-hall quality sound with the 11-speaker JBL sound system.

Your SUV, Your Way

Toyota knows there’s no one-size-fits-all SUV. That’s why the 2021 Highlander is offered in an array of trim levels: L, LE, XLE, XSE, Limited, and Platinum. As you move up through these trim levels, you’ll outfit your SUV with the features you’re most excited about. Choose the XLE to get heated front seats with SofTex-trimmed upholstery that looks and feels good. Get the XSE for a sportier appearance with ambient interior lighting. The Limited adds ventilation to the front seats, as well as leather upholstery and a heated steering wheel. You get to build your Highlander to fit your style.

Come and get your test drive of the impressive new 2021 Toyota Highlander today. Once you experience the road from behind the wheel of this next-level SUV, you may not want to drive anything else.
