New 2016 Toyota Highlander at Fort Dodge Ford Toyota for Fort Dodge, IA

The Toyota Highlander was partially responsible for creating the SUV segment and it remains extremely popular after all of these years. Massive improvements have happened over years of development but the vehicle remain just as functional and reliable as the original lineups. For the 2016 model there has been a hybrid model thrown into the mix as well as a newer, bolder, sharper exterior. The Highlander can fit up to eight people and the V-6 option gets you a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. The Highlander gets great safety reviews and truly can be an awesome family car.

Under the Highlander's Hood

The base engine level for this year’s Highlander is an inline 4 cylinder which is a 2.7-liter with the ability to create 185 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine gets 20 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway. A different choice is the V-6 3.5-liter unleashing 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. For this setup there is a convenient choice of all-wheel drive available which really helps a lot for people living in the snow belt as well as negotiating whatever mother nature may throw at you. The front wheel drive has fuel efficiencies of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The all-wheel drive gets 18 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway. Toyota is more than happy to now start offering a hybrid engine in the top trim levels. This hybrid uses the same V-6 engine along with two electric motors with the ability to provide 280 horsepower. It certainly can run a bit higher in price but pays off because the fuel efficiency is 28 miles per gallon on the highway.

Design of Toyota Highlander

A drastically improved interior helps the Highlander be even more useful to its occupants by offering easy to use controls and features literally at your fingertips. The center console also is optimized for maximum storage and can hold many things useful to daily commutes or family travel. The exterior has a bold grille and a rugged look and takes the idea of a family “wagon” to unimaginable heights. It is definitely a fresh face in a crowd with a great deal more character than its competitors in segment. The base level Highlander LE has a day/night rear view mirror, tilting telescoping steering wheel, three auxiliary power outlets, a 6.1-inch touch display, Bluetooth, voice recognition and a ton more. If you are alright with losing the third row space you can upgrade to second row captain’s chairs, there is also upgrades to a moon roof, DVD entertainment center and zoned climate control.
