It’s hard to claim which Toyota utility vehicle might be the most popular of all, as each one shines brightly within its segment. Although it hasn’t been around as long as either the RAV4 or 4Runner, the Highlander might be one of the frontrunners, especially as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Having made its debut for the 2001 model year, the Highlander is now in the second year of its fourth generation. The 2021 Toyota Highlander makes an excellent option for any driver looking for a good blend of power and space, with plenty of style thrown in the mix. It’s available right now here in Lima OH!
Having just entered its fourth-generation last year, not much needed to change for the 2021 model year. Even still, Toyota made two pretty significant changes for the 2021 model year. The first is that it’s among the first models to upgrade to Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ being standard across the board.
The newest version of the suite of advanced driver-assistive safety technologies includes an enhanced version of the Pre-collision System with Pedestrian Detection. The technology is now able to detect oncoming vehicles or pedestrians when performing a left-hand turn, plus it adds emergency steering assist. TSS 2.5+ also includes Road Sign Assist, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Sway Warning System and Automatic High Beams.
The other major change is the introduction of a brand-new trim level, the Highlander XSE. This new trim is a sportier option, with specially tuned handling suspension and a few unique or exclusive design cues inside and out. The new trim is positioned right between the XLE and Limited trim levels.
