What's New for the 2019 Toyota Highlander?

While other automakers have opted to downsize their vehicles, and sometimes reduce the number of features in them to cut costs, Toyota has actually expanded the Highlander. While you might think this logic would deter customers, the opposite is true. This year, you can choose from a seating configuration of seven to eight passengers depending on the model in the flagship full-size SUV.

In addition to providing a flexible seating layout, the Highlander in this model year is safer and more tech-savvy than ever before thanks to an abundance of new standard and optional amenities that can enhance your ride. In addition to a luxurious interior, Toyota provided the Highlander with plenty of power. This year, it has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds to meet all your hauling needs.
