If you're searching for a capable SUV to take you on all types of adventures near Brunswick, Freehold, and Lawrence, you might want to consider the 2017 Toyota Highlander.

Our team at Dayton Toyota wrote this Toyota Highlander Review to help you learn more about it. We'll cover the SUV's iconic design, high-performance engine, neat features, life-saving safety systems, and state-of-the-art technology.

Exterior Design: Stylish & Bold

With a pyramid-shaped front grille, dangerously sleek front headlamps, and available 19-inch Dark Chromtec® alloy wheels (on certain trims), the 2017 Toyota Highlander seems like a vehicle that was boldly designed with style in mind.

However, it was engineered for much more than looks.

Performance: 3.5L V6 Direct-Injection Engine

The Highlander is an SUV that's meant to perform. That's why it offers an available 3.5L V6 Direct-Injection engine that delivers up to 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque.

When properly equipped, all this power allows the Toyota to tow up to 5,000 lb.*

Furthermore, you don't even have to sacrifice efficiency. The 2017 Highlander still has a maximum fuel economy rating of 27 mpg on the highway.

Interior Features: Spacious & Versatile

In the Toyota Highlander, you can bring your friends and family with you as well as all your stuff. That way, nobody-and nothing-gets left behind on the big trip.

Its cabin's three rows provide seating for up to 8 people. Its 60/40 split-folding seats allow you to carry 13.8 cubic feet, 42.3 cubic feet, or 83.7 cubic feet of cargo, depending on which rows you decide to stow.

Best of all, your passengers will be hard pressed to complain that they can't plug in their phone or other electronic device as the Highlander comes standard with five USB ports.

Safety: Toyota Safety Sense™ P and Star Safety System™

How will Toyota's top-of-the-line suite of safety tech protect you and everybody else in the SUV?

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.
  • Automatic High Beams.

Additionally, with Toyota's Star Safety System™, you'll get six more active safety features:

  • Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control.
  • Traction Control.
  • Anti-Lock Brake System.
  • Electronic Brake-Force Distribution.
  • Brake Assist.
  • Smart Stop Technology.

Technology: Entertainment & Convenience

You're probably wondering: how will the Toyota Highlander entertain everybody during those seemingly endless road trips?

Three words: Entune™ Multimedia Bundle.This available package puts an eight-inch high-resolution touch-screen display at your fingertips along with well-known applications and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio compatibility.

Finally, in terms of convenience, there's the Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan. This function will give you a 360° view of your surroundings, which makes parking the 2017 Toyota Highlander an absolute breeze.

*Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. "Added vehicle equipment" includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
