2020 Toyota Highlander Overview Baltimore, Maryland

January 13th, 2020 by

The 2020 Toyota Highlander is the initial model year of the fourth generation of the Highlander line. This being the first complete overhaul of the nameplate since 2014, this newly redesigned, 3-row crossover features all of the latest technologies and luxuries Toyota has to offer.

Just like the outgoing model, there will be both a standard gasoline Highlander, as well as a hybrid variant. Engine options have been streamlined, now with all non-hybrid Highlander models rolling off assembly with a standard 3.5L V6 engine, good for a healthy 295 horsepower (hp) and 263 pounds per foot of torque (lb./ft). The 4 cylinder may have been dropped from the standard Highlander, but a 2.5 liter four cylinder replaces the outgoing hybrid’s V6. The smaller displacement will certainly equate to improved fuel economy. The 2020 Highlander offers 5 trims: L, LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum. Hybrid powertrains are available in every trim level except the base L trim.

The 2020 Toyota Highlander L has a starting MSRP of $35,720, and comes equipped with plenty of premium standard features. The center console mounted touchscreen infotainment display grows to 8 inches, and comes loaded with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa as standard! 3-zone automatic climate control helps ensure all of your passengers are comfortable, as well as the 2.4 inch extended wheelbase, equating to improved rear passenger legroom and cargo volume!

Step up to higher trim levels, and options like second row captain’s chairs, a panoramic moonroof, heated/ventilated front seats, and an even larger 12.3 inch touchscreen become available. Also, for the first time ever, 20 inch rims are available of a Toyota Highlander straight from the factory! Regardless of which trim level you opt for, the new 2020 Toyota Highlander offers a more sculpted appearance, benefiting in both terms of style and fuel efficiency, thanks to the improved aerodynamics compared to the previous iteration.

Perhaps the one of the most unexpected yet useful additions to the 2020 Highlander is the optional tow package. If you plan on towing your boat to the Chesapeake, this is certainly the option to seek. This package allows the 2020 Highlander to tow up to 5,000 lbs. thanks to a heavier-duty radiator and engine oil cooler. On top of that, the All-Wheel drivetrain is specially configured to send more power to the rear wheels, as opposed to the 50/50 power distribution in standard Highlanders.

You can shop the 2020 Toyota Highlander with confidence knowing that you and your passengers will be secured by the latest safety technologies Toyota has to offer in its Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0) feature suite. All 2020 Toyota Highlanders come standard with Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Automatic High Beams, and a Rear-View Backup Camera! Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are optional in higher trim levels!
