Toyota Highlander Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Senior Automotive Editor -

Introduced in 2001, the Toyota Highlander is a crossover SUV that shares its platform with a host of Toyota (Camry, Avalon) and Lexus (RX, ES) models. The first generation featured boxy styling that reflected its practical capabilities.

A significant 2008 redesign took the Highlander in a new direction with more rounded lines, larger dimensions and a plusher feel. Available in front- or all-wheel-drive, and with 4- or 6-cylinder engines, the Highlander can accommodate a driver and six passengers in three rows of seats.
