2018 Toyota Highlander in Sinking Spring, PA

 As the Toyota Highlander nears its 20th anniversary, the mid-size crossover is a better option for prospective owners than ever before. The 2018 Toyota Highlander is capable of comfortably accommodating three rows of passengers and performing in both on-road and off-road conditions.

Trim Levels

The 2018 Highland comes in eight different trims. The base model, LE, can seat eight passengers and comes with an integrated backup camera. The second trim is the LE Plus. This trim improves upon the base LE by offering a height-adjustable power liftgate and flip-up rear hatch. The next available trim is the XLE that features a power-operated moonroof. Next is the SE trim. This model sports 19-inch alloy wheels and projector-beam halogen headlights.The Limited trim uses 19-inch alloy wheels to distinguish itself. The remaining three trims are hybrid versions of the preceding models: Hybrid LE, Hybrid XLE, and Hybrid Limited. These models are largely similar to the trims on which they're based, but feature significantly better fuel economy.

Engine

You will have three different engine choices with the 2018 Toyota Highlander. The first is a 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and delivers up to 185 horsepower. The second available choice is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that gives you 295 horsepower. This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Finally, the hybrid trims of the new Highlander combines the larger 3.5-liter engine with two electric motors. The combined output of this setup yields 306 horsepower, and this hybrid powertrain is controlled with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Performance

With its comfortable ride quality and exceptional passenger capacity, the 2018 Highlander is a great choice for your everyday driving needs. However, the vehicle is equally capable of performing off-road maneuvers. Equip your Highlander with the available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive system to automatically distribute engine power between the front and rear wheels. This system also manages the crossover's braking to deliver the highest possible level of performance. The Highlander is also built with fuel efficiency in mind, and the hybrid trims of the vehicle achieve significant gains in this field.

Interior

Including the driver, the 2018 Highlander is able to seat up to eight people. While this is impressive in its own right, what's even better is that each passenger will be more comfortable than ever before. The Highlander features available heated second-row captain's chairs, a panoramic moonroof, and a cabin design that minimizes wind and road noise. With rear-seat entertainment systems and five USB charging stations, passengers can also stay connected with their mobile devices.

Safety Features

The 2018 Highlander incorporates Toyota's Safety Sense-P package into its design. This is a suite of active driver assistance technologies that help to keep you safe at all times. Some of the included features are lane-departure alert with steering assistance, dynamic radar cruise control, pre-collision detection, and automatic high beams. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also awarded the Highlander with a five-star safety rating.
