The 2017 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid in Edmonton AB
Toyota first introduced its popular midsize crossover back in 2000, where it quickly began turning heads for its utility and versatility. Now nearly 17 years later the crossover is still running strong and representing Toyota’s utility vehicle lineup to the best of its abilities. Which is precisely why we cannot wait for the upcoming 2017 Toyota Highlander in Edmonton AB, or the new 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, both featuring significant updates and enhancements to its specs, features and even designs.
What’s new in the 2017 Toyota Highlander?
There has always been plenty to be excited about in the Toyota Highlander, but who doesn’t like new things? And there are plenty of new things to go around in the newest model, including an all-new 3.5L V6 engine that delivers more power than ever before. Exact power ratings and similar specifications haven’t yet been released, but we know the more powerful engine tied to its new Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission will deliver better performance than previous models.
As for those design changes, style will be enhanced subtly around both the vehicle’s interior and exterior. A newly-designed front grille – both upper and lower – comes to each trim level, with unique finishes for every available grade. The headlamp housings and taillights will be sleeker than previous models, and you’ll even have three new exterior colors to choose from.
Finally, the brand-new Toyota Safety Sense package will be available in the updated 2017 Toyota Highlander. Toyota Safety Sense features tons of great advanced safety features like the Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and more. Each feature delivers an extra boost in confidence every time you get behind the wheel, making the roads safer one car at a time!
