The 4th-generation Highlander has been rumored for quite some time and fans have been eager to see some action in terms of the new vehicle being released. It is already due time that the 4th-gen vehicle appears and people are fed up of being teased. The recently announced concept is very close to a production level vehicle as it shows us everything that you might expect from a car and gives us all the makings of a new vehicle.
What is going to be new for the Highlander now are some styling details that are going to make the car look more contemporary than it ever was. Besides shaping and refreshing its looks a bit, the car is also going to have a change in terms of the interior. Some quality materials are scheduled to be shown and an upgrade in the technology department. many people regard that the competition for this vehicle comes form the latest Honda Pilot and Dodge Durango vehicle but also from the upcoming 2017 Ford Explorer.
2017 Toyota Highlander Exterior
The car is going to be updated so we have a more contemporary look for the 2017 Toyota Highlander exterior. We expect to see a lot of things transferred from the look of the concept to the final production level car. The concept is already production ready and has all the makings of a wonderful new vehicle. With some advanced options and cues provided now the car is supposed to gain in its utility and usefulness. There are many things that are going to be very useful for the new Highlander as it will enable it much more use for various kinds of jobs that you want it for. The car is not only useful but looks good with the new added details and parts to it. We expect that the fans will appreciate the refreshed and updated look which we are going to get for the Highlander car.
For now the concept vehicle is equipped with some 18-inch wheels that come as a standard option for it. We assume that the production car is going to go a bit higher and make available some larger optional one that can be used. The car will most certainly remain the same in shape and size as there is no need of making things nor larger nor smaller. With the standard equipment you can expect to get heated exterior mirrors and privacy glass, while the headlights are going to have auto on/off ability. Take a look here on the Wiki page for more info about history of the model.
The inside of the 2017 Toyota Highlander is going to come with a standard setting that you have already been used to. If you have enjoyed the inside of the previous cars that bared the name Highlander, you will certainly enjoy the new one, but this time expect a lot more comfort than it was provided to you before. The car is going to have a standard two rows of seats with available spacing for 5 passengers. The legroom and headroom is very ample and is one of the qualities that the Highlander vehicles have. The interior is supposed to be very stylish and elegant. It does not only feel good but it will more than certainly look good. With the leather filling and some soft touch surfaces you will be able to enjoy a ride inside the Highlander on any kind of a terrain.
Additionally, the car will also have everything which comes out of the latest technology batch. The car sports a unique setup which adds a lot of details and contemporary equipment. With the standard ones expect some additional ones which may enhance your overall price but not in a significant way that you will not be able to handle it. The updated navigation system is a standard offer and also the eight spear audio system which is going to be positioned higher in the car making the sound much more appropriate. An 8.1 inch touch screen is going to help you with the control of the infotainment system and make it easier to use while there is going to be some added connectivity options as well. Besides the standard Bluetooth connectivity you can wire your phone or tablet with interface of the car and use the available apps for some intriguing usages.
In order to make the 2017 Toyota Highlander as useful as the brand vehicles that preceded it and provide that it has the strong performance and ability we expect it to have, the car is going to add a very good powertrain to make all of this possible. The car is going to sport a 3.5 liter V6 engine, which many say is the perfect type of an engine for the newest Highlander. Also it offers us an output of 270 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque which is more than enough for any type of a job you would expect from the Highlander. Also, it combines with a 6 speed automatic transmission for better performance and a bit enhanced fuel economy, but not in a considerable way.
Price and release date
The 2017 Toyota Highlander does not yet have a release date. But as it seems it is very close to happening. The car is going be available very soon as the concept model is already close to the production level so we assume that the car is already going to be available for purchase in mid-2017. The price tag will start from around $30,000 and may perhaps reach the $44,000 in total.
