The new Toyota Highlander Design Preview
Toyota is on a major roll with new SUVs, especially the next-generation three-row 2020 Highlander debuting at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
Arriving in Toyota dealerships in winter, the Highlander Gas model will arrive in December 2019 and the Highlander Hybrid will make its way to customers in February 2020.
Just as the first RAV4 launched the compact crossover SUV segment 22 years ago, the original Toyota Highlander redefined the midsize family SUV when it arrived in 2001.
At a time when most midsize SUVs were truck-based, the Highlander's unibody structure with four-wheel independent suspension quickly became the template for a new segment of more comfortable and family-friendly SUVs.
After adding a third row, the Highlander not only grew in size, but is also now the best-selling retail model in the segment since 2016.
Now, the fourth-generation of this benchmark SUV brings a new level of bold, distinctive design to a foundation built on safety, comfort, quality, durability and reliability set by predecessors.
The 2020 Highlander amplifies all qualities while taking on a dramatic new design direction that combines a powerful SUV presence with sophisticated detailing.
The 2020 Toyota Highlander's new sophisticated look, covers a new vehicle platform called Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA-K).
This robust new foundation, shared with other Toyota models, enables even greater capability, comfort and safety than before.
The fourth-generation Highlander offers the choice between a powerful V6 or new-generation hybrid powertrain, with the gas version offering a manufacturer-estimated 22 MPG combined fuel economy and the Hybrid offering an manufacturer-estimated 34 MPG combined fuel economy.
