Larger Size

The 2014 Toyota Highlander will have a larger exterior and interior. The crossover will still include the vital three-row seating that can seat up to eight people, but Toyota is expanding legroom availability. In addition, the 2014 edition is said to have larger cargo space to allow enough room to meet the needs of even the busiest families.

Added Safety Features

The 2014 Highlander will include a rear cross traffic, blind spot monitoring, pre-collision system and lane departure warning. These are just the type of features that many families are looking for to provide added protection while they are on the road. In addition, the sterling system has been totally revamped to include better functionality for the driver. There is now an 8-inch touchscreen component to control all the special features of the Highlander. Driver’s seat memory will make changing drivers simple, and an automatic cruise control system will improve overall driving experience.

2014 Highlander to Be Introduced

Toyota revealed plans about the new 2014 Highlander during the Superbowl. It ran a 60-second commercial that highlights the vehicle’s features. The commercial features Terry Crews and the Muppets. Jack Hollis, Toyota’s Marketing Vice President, said “Toyota vehicles are built to last and can even endure the most boisterous Muppets, a former NFL player, as well as a center console full of chickens.” This short clip is the one of the first looks fans have had to see the new Toyota Highlander.

The new Highlander will give customers the option of a 2.7L with a four-cylinder engine or a 3.5L with a V6 engine that has a six-speed automatic transmission. There will also be a hybrid version of the Highlander released to offer an environmentally friendly version of the crossover vehicle. This vehicle is expected to be very popular, especially because more and more families are switching over from the larger SUVs to smaller, more stylish crossovers like the Highlander. Thus, the new Highlander represents a marked shift in demand in the car market.

Once this vehicle is released, you can take a look for yourself at your local Toyota dealership and see whether this crossover will be right for your family. A look at the larger passenger room and cargo space matched with the new safety features may be just what many families are looking for. You will need to test drive a vehicle like this to grasp everything it has to offer.
