2011 Toyota Highlander Review

(4 Stars)  Does a good job under the radar

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Toyota has expanded their SUV line and is now offering many different varieties to tend to all of their consumers needs. The Toyota Highlander has been a fan favorite for a long time and is the midsized member of the Toyota SUV family. Since its inception in 2001 the Highlander has offered a combination of high quality interior accommodations and a very rugged truck capable of any off road task given to it. The newest generation of Highlander is slightly longer and wider that the first gen, but still fits into the midsize class. The base model is setup to seat five passengers, but there is a 7 seat version in a higher trim level. The 2011 Highlander offers 3 different engines, but comes stock with a 2.7 liter 187 horsepower engine and a six speed automatic transmission.

For those who are power hungry the Highlander can be fitted with a 6 cylinder engine offering up to 270 horsepower and a 5 speed manual transmission is also available. The top trim level introduces the new continuously variable transmission that removes the need to shift altogether for a totally new driving experience.
