Key highlights of the 2019 Toyota Highlander

The 2019 Toyota Highlander is a great large size SUV that redefines adventure driving. It has a stunning feature- rich interior design that beautifully complements the bold and tough exterior. The Highlander dominates the asphalt with an all-wheel drive and also handles uncertain roads and driving conditions.

Check out what more the Highlander has to offer both under the hood and inside the luxurious yet budget-friendly build.

Feature-rich interior
Stay plugged in with all your favorite electronic devices with all kinds of external ports made available on the central dash. Plus, the interior is layered with silencing materials for insulation along the floor to give you the quietest ride possible. There is a comfortable seating space for a total of 8 people with reclining third-row seats. When you plan to ride solo and haul some luggage, just fold down the extra seats to create a massive cargo space. Above all, one of the key highlights of the premium SUV is the panoramic moonroof that opens up to give you a spectacular view of the night sky.

Unmatched performance
Direct is the most apt reference when it comes to the engine configuration of the 2019 Toyota Highlander. We are talking about Direct-fuel injection and Direct Shift 8AT automatic transmission. Both components are built to handle the massive torque and power generated by the 3.5L V6 engine. But even with all power under the hood, the Highlander maintains a 21/27 mileage estimated for city/highway driving all day long. And if you are worried about emissions, the Highlander’s MPG meets EPA standards to earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) rating.

Automatic stop and start feature
The engines can start and switch off on their own depending on when the vehicle is stationary and needs to move. For example, while stopping at a red light, the automatic feature cuts power and saves fuel, especially at longer intersections. And simply releasing the brake pedal will trigger the engine to start on its own. This is one of the reasons for the Highlander being extremely fuel efficient.

Dynamic control torque
The main advantage of an all-wheel drive is superior control in multiple driving modes and road conditions. The Toyota Highlander features a Dynamic Torque Control system that uniformly distributes the engine’s power across all four wheels. If the ride gets too bumpy, the onboard sensors adjust the power to ensure the vehicle maintains a proper driving line and control. The dynamic control also adjusts braking accordingly to ensure a smooth ride on rough and uncertain terrain.

Towing capacity
If you thought the Highlander is just another large size SUV off the block, think again. With a maximum load of nearly 5000 lbs, the 2019 Toyota Highlander is also built for towing. So the next time you plan a nice weekend getaway out in the woods, hook up your camper van to the back of the car, and off you go!
