2014 Toyota Highlander Priced Slightly Higher than Outgoing Model

By | November 20, 2013
Now in its third generation, the Toyota Highlander offers more standard features, updated technology, and seating for up to seven passengers with a starting just under $30,000. Toyota currently offers the new Highlander in four models, the LE, LE Plus, XLE, and Limited, but a hybrid model expected to follow in the near future. All models are powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, paired with a new six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission with selectable manual sequential shifting. If a V-6 engine is not what you're looking for, Toyota also offers a 2.7-liter four-cylinder as an alternative on the LE model. Standard features include an adjustable-height power liftgate with a flip-up rear hatch window, eight-way power driver seat with lumbar support, Entune Audio Plus with satellite and HD radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, as well as eight standard airbags. Available features include a panoramic moonroof, heated steering wheel, and heated perforated leather second-row captain's chairs. A driver technology package is also available. The 2014 Toyota Highlander is offered with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, with standard dynamic torque control on the all-wheel drive models. Pricing for the base LE model starts at $29,215 and tops out at $43,590 before the $860 destination charge. The all-new Toyota Highlander is expected to arrive in showrooms by January 2014.
