2014 TOYOTA HIGHLANDER: Active families will be checking into the all-new Toyota Highlander sport utility vehicle (SUV) while visiting the 106th Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 8-17, 2014. Toyota touts the 2014 Highlander as a no-compromise mid-size three-row SUV that combines the best in style, technology, comfort, capability and safety. Highlander is available in four well-equipped grades: LE, LE Plus, XLE and Limited. Fresh exterior design elements include a retouched trapezoidal grille, wraparound headlights, deeply chiseled fenders, sculptured wheel wells and rear panels. In addition, a newly designed height-adjustable rear liftgate is available with one-touch power open/close function. Highlanders comes equipped with a soft-touch instrument panel; and silver-painted, satin, and chrome-plated accents throughout the interior. Wood-grain pattern trim can be found on the front dash and door trim of Limited grade models for an added touch of elegance. With three-rowseating for up to eight passengers, the Highlander will haul up to 95.4 cu. ft. of the family cargo Highlander when middle and third row seating are folded down. There are three powertrain choices: a fuel-efficient 2.7 liter four-cylinder that produces 187 horsepower, a 270hp 3.5L V-6, and a gasoline powered V-6 Hybrid model that is paired with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator for total system output of 280hp. All of the powerplants are mated to a new six-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission with selectable manual sequential shifting. When equipped with the optional tow package, the V-6 models enables up to 5,000-pound towing capacity, while the four-cylinder tow parcel provides a maximum of 3,500 lbs. All ’14 Highlanders feature a newly designed LCD in-meter-cluster Multi-Information Display available in 3.5-inch black & white or 4.2-inch color display.
