Trim Levels of the 2021 Toyota Highlander

Does it seem that what your family really needs is a big, old-fashioned station wagon? Well, station wagons aren't around anymore but the new version is: today's three-row SUV. Problem is, there are a lot of SUVs to choose from, right? Well, yes, but according to many testing organizations, one is the best: the Toyota Highlander. For almost 20 years, Highlanders have been unequaled for transporting families around easily, comfortably, and safely.  Let's take a closer look at the 2021 Toyota Highlander.

What are the 2021 Highlander powertrain details?

The standard Highlander comes with a 295-hp 3.5-liter V-6, which pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either FWD or AWD.  For those who are interested in the hybrid, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors team up for a combined 243 horsepower. This model comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and a choice between either FWD or AWD.

What is it like inside the 2021 Highlander?

The L and mid-range LE models can seat eight passengers using bench seats in the second and third rows. A  seven-seat arrangement with second-row captain's chairs is available on higher trims. Materials throughout the cabin are plush and upscale. The Limited and Platinum trims provide the most creature comforts. The cargo area behind the third row is large enough to carry four carry-on suitcases.

An 8.0-inch infotainment system comes standard on most trims, but the Highlander Limited and Platinum get a large 12.3-inch display. An 11-speaker JBL audio system is available. Toyota provides SiriusXM satellite radio, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa integration for all models.
