First Drive and Review: 2014 Toyota Highlander

Fallback Image

2014 Toyota Highlander on Everyman Driver with Dave EricksonThe all-new 2014 Toyota Highlander sport utility vehicle (SUV) is on dealer showrooms right now and I encourage you to sit behind the wheel because when you do, you’ll be very surprised at the new interior styling. The exterior styling is just as impressive.  For the more eco-friendly minded, the all-new fuel-efficient Highlander Hybrid will arrive at Toyota dealers in mid-February of this year (2014).

The all-new Highlander is a no-compromise mid-size three-row SUV that brings together the best in style, technology, comfort, capability, and safety. Its exterior design conveys both refinement and strength, which complements a totally redesigned interior that will raise the bar in its segment.

With three-rowseating for up to eight, an array of standard features, a host of available in-cabin technologies, and increased cargo capacity, the new Highlander offers a nuanced balance of style, comfort and utility. The total package is capped off with three powertrain choices: a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, a powerful V6 with a new six-speed transmission that will produce excellent all-around capability, and a V6-powered Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain that delivers fewer emissions and segment-leading miles-per-gallon for a three-row mid-size SUV.

Everyman Driver recently went ‘on assignment’ to Portland, Oregon for a first drive and review of the 2014 Toyota Highlander and below is what we learned.  Enjoy.
