Robust Performance Capabilities

Make no mistake – the 2017 Toyota Highlander is capable of more than just a jaunt around town. Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine and an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission, this SUV has a total output of 295 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power for this model to handle a max towing load of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, allowing you to haul even a small boat behind you when you’re headed out on a family trip. In terms of efficiency, the Highlander utilizes an automatic Stop and Start Engine System along with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) in order to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway and 21 mpg city. You can also take your pick between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

State-of-the-Art Technology

With the 2017 Toyota Highlander, you’ll be able to enjoy a commanding range of in-vehicle technologies that are easy to use and will help keep you connected while on the road:

  • Surround View Camera – Navigating a large SUV around tight city streets can sometimes prove tough, but it’s made a lot easier with the help of the Bird’s Eye View Camera, which lets you see 360 degrees around the vehicle and includes a Perimeter Scan feature.
  • Entune Infotainment – You’ll have access to all your favorite media when you get the Entune™ Multimedia Bundle, which includes satellite radio, smartphone app integration, integrated navigation, and more, all on a high-resolution 8-inch color touchscreen.
  • Driver Easy Speak – Communicating in a large vehicle with three rows of seats can sometimes be difficult, but the innovative Driver Easy Speak features allows drivers to clearly communicate with those in the third row by transmitting their voice through the rear speakers.
  • Rear Seat Entertainment System – When you want to keep rear seat passengers entertained, the Highlander is offered with an available rear seat entertainment system that comes with a 9-inch display screen integrated into the ceiling, along with RCA jacks, a Blu-Ray disc player, and two sets of wireless headphones.


Premium Cabin and Spacious Cargo Area

The 2017 Toyota Highlander is a spacious three-row crossover SUV with a total interior volume of 158.7 cubic feet. This cavernous interior allows you to seat up to eight passengers comfortably on most models, while the higher trims levels are also offered with standard or available second-row captain’s chairs, in which case seating caps at seven. In terms of storage, you can look forward to 13.8 cubic feet behind the rear seat and a max cargo area measuring 83.7 cubic feet.

With driver and passenger comfort in mind, the cabin of the Highlander has been insulated for a quiet, peaceful riding experience for everyone; other comfort-centered amenities such as tri-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof are included as well. You’ll also have access to leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a premium JBL® sound system, as well as the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) package of advanced driver assist and collision mitigation features.
