2014 Toyota Highlander Video, First Look: 2013 NY Auto Show

Toyota rolled out a new Highlander at the 2013 New York Auto Show on Wednesday, fitted with new looks and some minor changes to the powertrains. 

Engine options remain the same, with a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder as standard equipment while the 3.5-liter V6 remains as an upgrade. A new six-speed automatic transmission is now linked up to the V6, while a new all-wheel drive system is also available on the Highlander, which allows the car to split the torque 50/50 front to rear, or run with 100 percent power to the front wheels.

    This is definitely a look that requires beer-goggles.  The current gen is no great beauty – but this got seriously beaten by the square ugly-stick.

    Video did not answer my main question- have they gotten rid of the stupid cup holder slide out middle seat combo and have a normal bench seat as the middle row?

  • Meh

    What’s up with the obscene fronts nowadays?
