About Texas Toyota of Grapevine Highlander Reviews
Three-row utility and smart technologies are only a couple of the Highlander's best qualities. On top of this, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped and offers good fuel economy without forfeiting performance. If you're interested in buying or leasing a 2016 Toyota Highlander in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, or if you're curious about taking a ride in the Highlander Hybrid, visit Texas Toyota of Grapevine to go for a spin!
Trim levels include the Highlander LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited and Limited Platinum. Eight-passenger seating is standard on the LE, LE Plus and XLE, but if you opt for the available second-row captain's chairs on the XLE you'll get seating for seven. Limited and Limited Platinum trim levels are standard with the captain's chairs.
On top of ample seating, 2016 Toyota Highlander reviews agree that the SUV shines in the features department. Base models offer premium appointments such as a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone, heated exterior mirrors, a rearview camera and a six-way adjustable driver's seat. Above this, even more upscale features join the equipment list, like the XLE's auto-dimming rearview mirror and Driver Easy Speak voice projection system, as well as the top-tier Limited Platinum's heated steering wheel and panoramic sunroof.
When you test drive a 2016 Toyota Highlander in the Dallas area, you can try out three different powertrain combinations. The FWD Highlander LE's standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine produces 185 horsepower and is married to a six-speed automatic. Optional on the base model and standard on all other trim levels is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 270 horsepower. It's also paired with a six-speed automatic, but there's a choice between FWD or AWD.
Lastly, 2016 Toyota Highlander reviews say green SUV shoppers will be pleased with the hybrid model's combination of the V6, electric motors, battery pack, all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission. It's an incredibly efficient setup that, again, doesn't sacrifice performance. With the Highlander Hybrid you can expect 280 horsepower combined and an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/28 mpg highway.
