It seems that we should expect a lot of novelties in the market in two years time. Namely, another major redesign coming from the popular Japanese carmaker will be the new 2020 Toyota Highlander crossover that has been planned as a 2020 model. This huge updates has been keenly anticipated among the fans ever since the outgoing generation hit the market in 2014.
The 2020 Toyota Highlander will once again appear as a three-row midsize crossover that will apply a brand-new design language. When it comes to its exterior, the new Highlander should appear more modern and aggressive than its predecessor. It will show a kind of futuristic styling and some of its features will be truly upgraded and innovative. Most of that redesign should probably be expected in the front fascia where this SUV might get a brand-new grille and reworked LED lights. The whole vehicle will seem dynamic and powerful, always ready for your family trips or off-road adventures. The upcoming Toyota Highlander could also wear a new set of wheels and offer some new body paint choices. It will be available in more than one trim level, including the one with a hybrid system under the hood.
As we have already mentioned, the 2020 Toyota Highlander will provide a three-row seating configuration. Its spacious, functional and comfortable cabin will be able to accommodate for eight passengers and even the rear seat will provide enough space for your legs. The Japanese carmaker should use some high-quality materials on the seats and other parts. The cabin of this crossover should also be quieter due to those high-quality acoustic materials that reduce the noise and vibrations. Besides the overall comfort, the driver will enjoy some of the latest high-tech features such as navigation system, USB ports, Android Auto and Apple Car Play thanks to an 8.0-inch infotainment touch-screen. The new Highlander should also improve its standard safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, a rearview camera, lane-keep assist and others.
When it comes to engine choices that the 2020 Toyota Highlander will be offering under its hood, there will be more than one, including a hybrid. The base model has been rumored to come with the current 2.7-liter four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, a more powerful 3.5-liter V6 could be found in higher trims. Finally, a hybrid version might be using a combination of a powerful V6, an electric motor and a battery pack, but the exact numbers and other details have still been a mystery.
