Toyota‘s Highlander crossover will debut in redesigned form at the State Fair of Texas, a year after Toyota used the event to launch their redesigned 4Runner. The Highlander was previously revealed in advance of the Moscow Auto Show.
Slated to compete against the new Ford Explorer and the Chevrolet/GMC/Buick Traverse/Acadia/Enclave crossovers, the Highlander will feature everything you’d expect from a big crossover; front or all-wheel drive, 5 or 7 passenger seating, and a couple V6 powertrains. The Highlander’s “killer app” will be the Hybrid model, which is expected to deliver better mileage than 27 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
