Toyota Highlander Receives Upgrade for 2014

The 2014 Highlander was announced to the public this week in a Toyota press conference.

Online PR News – 30-March-2013 – Moline, IL – The 2014 Toyota Highlander SUV was revealed worldwide in a press conference on Wednesday, March 27th at the New York International Auto Show.
The new Highlander has been completely redesigned, both inside and out. The mid-size SUV’s structure has been expanded and redefined, allowing for room for up to 8 passengers inside. The Highlander’s exterior has been given a sleek new look, complete with an updated grille, hood and headlamps, and the SUV’s interior had been redesigned for better access to the third seating row.
The 2014 Highlander also comes with an option of three different engines: a basic 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine, a 3.5-liter V6 engine with the option of front- or all-wheel drive, and a 3.5-liter V6 hybrid engine, allowing for better fuel economy and fewer emissions.
In addition to the traditional Toyota safety features like Stability and Traction Control, Brake-force Distribution, Smart Stop Technology and eight standard airbags, the 2014 Highlander will also feature new safety additions, including Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic and Lane Departure Alerts and rear parking sonar technology.
The updated Highlander continues Toyota’s campaign to enhance its SUV models, which began with recent improvements to the RAV4 and Venza.
“The all-new Highlander will continue a rebirth of our SUV line up,” said Bill Fay, General Manager of Toyota Sales U.S.A., at Wednesday’s press conference. “With an amazing new design, premium interior, advanced technologies, and a fun-to-drive spirit, [the] Highlander will give families the perfect balance of comfort and utility they want to ‘go places’ and ‘make memories.’”
