Used Toyota Highlander Information
Since 2001, the Toyota Highlander has been the company's go-to crossover for families who need space but aren't interested in a minivan or full SUV. As the crossover counterpart to the more truck-like Toyota 4Runner, the Highlander is a large crossover respected for its versatility, family-friendly build, and premium style. Only the smaller RAV4 outsells the Highlander in Toyota's SUV lineup.
The first-generation Highlander entered the market as a front- or all-wheel drive crossover with looks very similar to the popular 4Runner SUV being sold in North America. It's focus on road comfort over offroad capability, however, made it a popular choice over rivals from Jeep and Chevrolet at the time. Having a third row of seating as an option was also a big selling point.
In 2007, the second-generation of the Toyota Highlander was introduced and included a hybrid variant. Both a four- and six-cylinder engine option were offered, though the four-cylinder was dropped briefly, which resulted in sales loss prompting its return. Still heralded as roomy and family-sized, the Highlander also scored an NHTSA Top Safety Pick award in the second-generation, boosting its popularity even further.
In 2013, Toyota introduced the third- and current generation of the Highlander. The new Highlander was more contemporary with an aggressive appeal and a host of family-friendly options and features. It has won several awards from the automotive press for its quality and ergonomics, though some have questioned its high price tag compared to many of its rivals. Nevertheless, the Highlander has proven to be a good seller for Toyota.
On the used car market, all of the Highlander generations enjoy a high value retention and generally have long ownership terms, making them competitive and somewhat scarce.
