For those drivers who are looking for a sporty yet sophisticated SUV, the 2017 Toyota Highlander is an exceptional choice! The Toyota brand announced details and specifications earlier this month, and it is significantly enhanced over past model years due to its array of advanced safety tech, performance capabilities, and convenience and comfort features. At our Toyota dealership near San Diego, CA, our team is excited about everything that this fun and engaging SUV has to offer!

The third-generation 2017 Toyota Highlander offers three rows of seating for up to eight passengers. Drivers have the option of one of six trim levels: SE, LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited, and Limited Platinum. It comes powered by a new 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and the option of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The V6 engine gets a new feature for the 2017 model year with the addition of the Stop and Start Engine System that shuts the engine off when the vehicle comes to a complete stop and then restarts it when the brake is released.

The Toyota brand continues its commitment to providing safe and well-equipped vehicles to its drivers with the 2017 Toyota Highlander, which comes with the brand’s Toyota Safety Sense P driver-assist technology as standard. The TSS-P includes pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beams, to name a few systems. Drivers will also get a lot of use out of the Toyota brand’s Entune audio system with a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, backup camera, and more!
