Judging by some spy shots which were found, the newest addition to the production line of this company, 2016 Toyota Highlander, will get a substantial facelift. New design of headlights, more aggressive-looking and lifted front fascia, new back structure, elegantly reshaped wings and overall body design will definitely make people on the street turn around to take another look at this mid-size SUV when you pass them by. Aerodynamics will also see significant improvements over the previous model, making it quicker and easier to go 0 to 60 as a start. Also, it will sport 18-inch alloy wheels with an option of selecting 19-inch alloy wheels.

Engine characteristics and options have been announced, though we can still see them change, almost certainly for the better. There are two options announced, the first one being a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine, and the second one a 3.5L V6 engine. For both of these options, there will be a selection of a 6-speed automatic transmission which will enable it to develop a bit more power than expected. Also, the 2016 Toyota Highlander will switch to an all-wheel drive system as opposed to the previous model.
