New 2018 Toyota Highlander in Kirkland

2018 Toyota Highlander - Exterior

AVAILABLE DYNAMIC TORQUE-CONTROL ALL-WHEEL DRIVE

When the road gets adventurous, Highlander embraces it with available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD). It distributes engine power from front to rear and manages the vehicle's braking system from side to side, giving you better control.

FRONT FASCIA

The 2018 Highlander features an inspired front fascia with a dynamic front grille and expressive headlights, making for one bold first impression. With a unique grille tailored for each grade, there's a Highlander that perfectly matches your style.

SE GRADE

Turn up the attitude. The distinctive Highlander SE grade stands apart with its bold, gloss-black grille and headlights with unique black housings. Exclusive 19-in. multi-spoke alloy wheels help this SUV show off its sporty side. Inside, aggressively styled stripes on the seats remind all passengers that this SUV is always up for some fun.

2018 Toyota Highlander - Interior

QUIET INTERIOR

Part of enjoying the road is to not hear it. Highlander has silencing insulation materials along its floor to help keep things quiet, as well as acoustic-type glass in the windshield to further reduce noise entering the cabin.

SEATING FOR UP TO 8

Highlander's roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats. Available second-row captain's chairs help Highlander comfortably seat seven and offer the same great versatility. You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the Limited grade with Platinum Package.

USB PORTS

With a total of five USB ports, it's easy to power up the family road trip. Three USB ports up front and two USB ports in the rear help everyone keep their favorite portable electronic devices plugged in.

REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT

Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough. Let the available rear-seat Blu-ray Disc entertainment system help. The 9-in. display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones.

CARGO SPACE

Waste no space. We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear. And since every journey's different, Highlander is there to adapt. Sometimes you've got lots of people, lots of gear or a mix of both. The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.

PANORAMIC MOONROOF

In-seat entertainment for everyone. Your passengers have the whole sky to entertain them, thanks to the available panoramic moonroof that is part of the Platinum Package.

DRIVER EASY SPEAK

Highlander's available Driver Easy Speak feature has a built-in microphone up front that picks up your voice and transmits it to rear-seat passengers through the back speakers.

2018 Toyota Highlander - Performance

3.5-LITER V6 DIRECT-INJECTION ENGINE

The available 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine helps give Highlander the perfect blend of power and efficiency. Engineered using Toyota's next-generation technologies, this advanced engine is mated to a sophisticated Direct Shift-8AT (8-speed Automatic Transmission) to help give you more control. These components work brilliantly together to help give Highlander brisk acceleration off the line, and more mpg when cruising at speed.

STOP AND START ENGINE SYSTEM

The efficient Stop and Start Engine System (S S) is available on V6 gas-powered Highlanders. This technology shuts the engine off when Highlander is at rest-like when at a stoplight-to help you save more fuel. When it's time to go, releasing the brake pedal seamlessly restarts the engine so you can effortlessly get on your way.

MPG

Optimizing fuel efficiency means making enhancements all over-like the transmission and efficient engine that help to enhance EPA mpg estimates and earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV-II) rating.

AVAILABLE 5000-LB. TOWING CAPACITY

Some adventures are so big you have to tow them. No problem. Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000 lbs.

THREE-ZONE AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL

No matter where you go, the temperature's perfect inside. The three-zone climate control available on Highlander features individual temperature controls for the driver and front passenger, along with a separate control panel in the back for the second- and third-row vents.

2018 Toyota Highlander - Safety

PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION

Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, the Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it prompts you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS w/PD may apply additional force using Brake Assist. If you don't brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.

STAR SAFETY SYSTEM

Highlander features the Star Safety System, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).

BIRD'S EYE VIEW CAMERA

Highlander's available Bird's Eye View Camera helps you see nearby objects and get in to and out of the smallest spaces with ease. The system includes Perimeter Scan-an innovative feature that displays live, rotating 360-degree views of your surroundings when you're parked.

ADVANCED AIRBAG SYSTEM

An Advanced Airbag System helps protect you and your family with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat-cushion airbag and Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) for all rows.
