Toyota Highlander: A Midsize SUV for the Masses

In an automotive world filled with SUVs and crossovers of all shapes and sizes, it's good to know that there's one in particular you can count on to check off all the boxes on your list of needs and wants. That would be the Toyota Highlander.

This midsize SUV stands out from the masses in many ways, not the least of which are its powerful performance, high-quality and spacious cabin, and impressive selection of standard and available features. The Highlander's quality and desirability are bolstered, of course, by the fact that it's made by Toyota - a brand with a long and well-earned reputation for excellence in engineering, safety, reliability, and longevity.

You can count on the Highlander not only to offer you everything you're looking for in a midsize SUV, but to do so with an eye toward strong and lasting value that make it a great buy, new or used.

But you don't just have to take our word for it. First, visit Mike Shaw Toyota's website to check out the Highlander models we currently have in stock. You'll love our selection and our prices, as well as the special offers we can apply to help make your Highlander even more affordable.

What's New in the 2018 Toyota Highlander?

The 2018 Toyota Highlander saw few changes following the mid-generation styling updates that occurred in 2017. However, that's not to suggest that it's anything but top-notch in every conceivable way. With the addition of standard Toyota Safety Sense in all Highlander trims, the Highlander upped the ante in terms of safety, a crucial consideration for many people shopping in the midsize SUV market. Toyota Safety Sense is the brand's package of advanced safety and driver-assistance features that includes such protective and warning elements as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, forward collision warning and braking, pedestrian detection, and hill start assist.

The base engine of the Highlander, a 2.7L 4-cylinder, offers sufficient pep, but by stepping it up to the available 3.5L V6 you'll see some real capability out on the road. It's clear from the jump in horsepower - 185 in the 4-cylinder versus 295 in the V6 - a difference you'll definitely appreciate if a strong powertrain is one of your priorities.

There's plenty of interior space for passengers and cargo alike, with room for up to eight (seven if you opt for the available second-row captain's chairs over the standard bench seat) and seats that recline for added comfort. Folding the rear seats down expands the cargo space, and the available power liftgate and flip-up rear window makes it easier to load and unload the cargo hold.

Among the six 2018 Highlander trims - LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited, and Limited Platinum - you can find standard and available features including:

  • Bluetooth technology*
  • Driver Easy Speak
  • Navigation
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • Surround-view camera
  • Heated seats

Words and pictures can only do so much to show you how amazing the Highlander is, so once you've found a model or two you're interested in, head over to Mike Shaw Toyota and check them out in person.

Highlander History

The Toyota Highlander was an instant hit when it came on the North American automotive scene in 2001. The car-based crossover was applauded for its spacious interior and its long list of standard and available equipment, and until the RAV4 came along, the Highlander was Toyota's top seller. Redesigns in 2008 and 2015, and a mid-generational refresh in 2017, kept the Highlander at the top of its game, with state-of-the-art features, a modern and stylish exterior, and an interior that continues to evolve to meet consumer expectations for comfort and convenience.
