2018 Toyota Highlander Exterior


In what concerns to the exterior of the 2018 Toyota Highlander, you will notice the new and improved grille on the front. There are no questions that it got bigger and it follows the trend that has already been stylish over the last couple of years.

2018 Toyota Highlander Interior


Inside the cabin of the 2018 Toyota Highlander, there aren’t many changes.

Some of the things that may catch your attention are the attractive seat upholstery that varies depending on the trim that you chose as well as the numerous USB ports available.

Even though there aren’t many changes, the truth is that the interior of the 2018 Toyota Highlander is still a strong sale point. In terms of the space in the different rows, the first two are extremely spacious and comfortable and all passengers will have plenty of room for both head and legs. In what concerns to the last row, it’s a bit tight but kids should travel there without any major concern.

And when you like to have space to hold your wallet, keys, smartphone, or anything else, you have a lot of space in the dash-width shelf as well as on the huge center console bin.

One of the things that you need to know about the 2018 Toyota Highlander is that there are many different options depending on the trim that you choose. For example, the LE Plus comes with an 8 inches touchscreen display, 3-zone automatic climate control, and faux leather seats. However, if you’re considering spending a bit more and choose the XLE, then you will get a better infotainment system that already includes navigation as well real leather seats. In the case of the Limited and Limited Platinum trims, the front seats are both ventilated and heated, the steering wheel is also heated, and there is an around-view camera.


Under the hood of the 2018 Toyota Highlander, you can find three different engines. The base 2018 Toyota Highlander LE model comes with a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 185 of horsepower and 184 pounds per feet of torque, and is powered by a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The second choice, and a better one in our opinion, is the V6 engine that is capable of producing 295 of horsepower and 263 pounds per feet of torque. Finally, you have the hybrid version of the 2018 Toyota Highlander that combines electric motors with the V6 engine and is capable of producing 306 of horsepower.

Release Date And Price

The base 2018 Toyota Highlander price should start around $32,000. However, if you’re looking at the higher trim levels, you can expect to pay at least $47,000.
