The New 2014 Toyota Highlander: Athletic, Sleek and Stylish
At first glance, the feature that most of our customers notice is the new exterior appearance. Through the last couple of years, Toyota has been more aggressive in their styling. The larger grille allows for more airflow and the roof rails are aerodynamic minimizing overhead noise. The newly redesigned Highlander is about three inches longer and a half-inch wider than its predecessors making its stance more aggressive.
New Features to Interior Include: Ergonomic Dashboard, Smart Storage Components, Heated/Ventilated Front Seats, Accent-Color Seat Stitching, Oversize Storage Console
At Peterson Toyota we find that the new 2014 Toyota Highlander offers a number of improvements to the interior. There is an increased spaciousness with a number of convenience features. Comfort also plays a role in that the surfaces are softer with only premium materials used. All Highlanders feature a new Multi-Information Display and each model comes with the Entune infotainment system which is now standard. One of our personal favorite features on the Highlander? The Driver Easy Speak. Driver Easy Speak allows the driver’s voice to project through the speakers ensuring every passenger hears what you are saying. Since the length of the Highlander has increased the head, shoulder and legroom are great! The second row can be ordered with a three person bench or two captain’s chairs. The third row has also been improved as well. The roomy interior of a Highlander gives you enough space to seat up to eight passengers.
The Toyota Highlander is available with a 4 cylinder engine that has 185 horsepower and 184 lb. -ft of torque allowing the EPA to estimate 20 mpg city and 25mpg highway. The V6 engine generates 270 horsepower and 248 lb. -ft of torque, offering up to 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway on the FWD models. Some of your adventures in your Highlander from Peterson Toyota will be so big you may have to tow them. No worries…the Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000 lbs.
