2021 Toyota Highlander: PREVIEW, PRICING, RELEASE DATE

Redesign Info

The Toyota Highlander is expected to be a carryover for 2021. In contrast, the 2020 Highlander benefits from a full redesign.

The current Highlander was introduced for 2014 and has undergone several updates. A more aggressive front end and standard auto emergency braking have helped keep the three-row SUV a top seller. For 2020, the Highlander will move to the automaker's global platform like the redesigned Camry and Avalon.

The next-generation Highlander takes an evolutionary step forward in terms of styling, rather than merely offering a larger version of the new RAV4. As before, the Highlander will continue to be offered with both a gas and hybrid engine option.

In terms of price, Toyota has spent the past several years adjusting prices for its hybrids, bringing them lower and closer in line with gas models. Although competitors have shifted to turbos, Toyota has held off on making any major changes, at least when it comes to other important models.

Toyota has not yet announced a release date for the 2021 Highlander. Meanwhile, the redesigned 2020 model is expected to arrive late this fall.

Check back for updates as they become available.
