Overview

The Highlander is offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, each with three trim levels: Base, Sport and Limited. All models are powered by a 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine, coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission with sequential manual shift mode. Every Highlander is outfitted with alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control and a flat-fold third row seat. Sport trims add larger 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and front fog lights, while Limited trims get the luxury of leather upholstery and automatic climate control, along with a six-disc CD changer. Additionally, all but Base trims are equipped with a rearview camera monitor, as well as a flip-up rear glass window in the liftgate for quick access to the cargo area. Standard safety features include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, electronic vehicle stability and traction control systems, active anti-whiplash front head restraints, front side-impact airbags and overhead curtain airbags for all three rows. After an extensive redesign in 2008, the Toyota Highlander carries over unchanged for 2009.
