2017 Toyota Highlander Gets a Reskin and More Power

At the upcoming New York Auto Show, Toyota will show off the 2017 edition of their Highlander midsize SUV, which will benefit from quite a few changes and improvements.

The cosmetic reskin concentrates on the vehicle’s front end, which gets a more aggressive look, and the more upscale trim levels receive a unique grille design to set them apart. The taillights are redesigned, and some chrome trim are added to the more expensive variants. New paint colours are offered as well.

Inside, the Limited trim level currently seats seven with its two captain’s chairs in the second row. However, in 2017, a three-passenger bench will be available, just like in the Highlander’s more affordable grades.

A new version called the SE is added to the lineup, which features unique 19-alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and a dark treatment applied to the front grille, headlight clusters and roof rails.

Under the hood, the 2017 Toyota Highlander benefits from a new direct-injected, 3.5-litre V6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The manufacturer hasn’t yet announced output figures, but they will obviously be higher than the 270 horsepower in the current Highlander. Fuel economy should also be improved. Most versions of the SUV equipped with the gasoline V6 engine will get automatic start/stop as well. The same powertrain will find its way in the 2017 Toyota Sienna minivan, too.

The 2017 Toyota Highlander will be on sale this fall.
