Toyota announces two new Highlander models
Last Friday Toyota quietly announced the availability of two new Highlander models. The first is the Highlander Sport available in either 2WD or 4WD trim with Toyota’s 215-horsepower V6 as the standard powerplant. Sounds sporty already. Exterior enhancements include a color-keyed grille, some chrome trim bandied about and 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels, while the interior benefits from an eight-way power driver’s seat, a leather wheel with audio controls and 3-in-1 AM/FM/Cassette/CD stereo. Curiously only the 4WD model will actually get a sport-tuned suspension. Prices start at $27,765 for the 2WD model and $29,235 for the 4WD version.
The other model is the decidedly non-exciting base V6 4WD two-row model that will go for $26,990 or about $850 less than a similar V6 4WD third-row model.
