The new 2016 Toyota Highlander has earned its stripes as one of--if not the--most all-around appealing three-row crossover utility vehicles on the market. Combining aggressive and rugged good looks with unsurpassed interior comfort, superb fuel economy with potent power, and confidence-inspiring safety features with an undeniably fun-to-drive feel, you will be hard-pressed to find an automotive realm in which the new Highlander doesn't excel.
Starting from an aesthetic standpoint, the 2016 Highlander is perhaps the most visually stunning to date. Form and function work in tandem with one another, so while every inch of its form may seem to have the primary role of appeasing the eye, there's also an underlying purpose. Take the striking front grille, for example. At face value, the bold grille looks like a conscious stylistic decision in an effort for the Highlander to exude a strong and confident road presence. While that is indeed true, the grille also aids with airflow to increase engine performance.
Speaking of performance, allow us to move on to the two smart engine options available in the new Highlander. Interested Annapolis, MD area drivers can choose from the 4-cylinder engine which produces 185-horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, while the available V6 engine generates a whopping 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque.
Neither no one, nor anything need be left behind when traveling with the mighty Highlander. With seating for up to eight occupants, the Highlander can even be equipped to tow up to 5,000 pounds--that's enough brawn for a boat, a pop-up camper, even two snowmobiles or jet skis. Whatever your weekend plans entail, the Highlander is the ideal crossover for the job.
