Toyota Highlander

Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese company that thinks big. It has good unique ideas to create exciting cars.  Today on the 27th, the New York Auto Show will host the debut of the mid-size SUV, 2014 Toyota Highlander. Just before the great reveal, the first official images have appeared.

An evolution in design is visible enough. Starting with the exterior, the new 2014 Toyota Highlander is equipped with sweptback headlights and wraparound taillights, a modified hood, roof-mounted rear spoiler and a prominent front grille. Around the wheel wells it has some plastic body cladding and below the fog lights it disposes of LED daytime running lights.

The inside of the car has also got some changes. Worth mentioning are the leather upholstery with red stitching, an elegant wood trim and certain metallic accents set on the dashboard, vents, gear shift knob and steering wheel. The 2014 Toyota Highlander possesses automatic transmission, start button, GPS navigation and dual climate control.

Engine options are plenty enough, so a future client has from where to choose. Power might come from a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine outputting 178 bhp (133 kW) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque, a larger V6 3.5-liter engine producing 268 bhp (200 kW) and 336 Nm (248 lb-ft) of torque. A hybrid version with a 141 hp (105 kW) electric motor and a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter offering 156 hp (116 kW) will probably also be available.

The 2014 Toyota Highlander mixes quality, dependability and reliability and it will certainly be one of the top selling car in America and not only.
