Toyota has confirmed that it will be showing off the all-new 2014 Highlander at the New York Auto Show later this month. It's been a while since we've heard about the updated Highlander, but given just how long this thing has been on the market, we certainly hope that the list of changes will be more extensive than the new 2014 Toyota Tundra that debuted in Chicago last month.

Currently, the Highlander is offered in both naturally aspirated and hybrid versions, with front- and all-wheel drive. We don't expect the formula to change too much, since sales of the Japanese CUV are still steady – well in line with newer players in the segment like the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder and GM's Lambda triplets (Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave).

We'll have the full skinny on the new Highlander in the coming weeks. For now, scroll down to read Toyota's incredibly brief press blast.

      Toyota has to price the hybrid more intelligently. At the most 3-4k more than the gas model. And of course get the interior packaging done better to create a little more room in the third row.

        they cannot the system is rather expensive, because it uses two motor, and the split power very complex. it gone cost at least $7000 more than the gas version.

      Interesting, whether it is a 2011 or a 2013, what you see is just a nice, olde fashioned station wagon raised up slightly in the air. Slowly, we seem to be returning to that non chic bodystyle. Good. When manufacturers stop this nonsense about CUVs and SUVs and just build station wagons that are evolved from their sedan models, we shall have come full circle.

        Yes, it is funny how many suburbanites, especially women, go absolutely berserk if you suggest that they buy a station wagon, and then they go out and buy some oddly-named crossover that is a station wagon with puffed up suspension. But at least they fooled themselves.

      I actually liked the clean design of the first generation Highlander better than the bloated replacement.

        whats good is they seem to FINALLY have someone in the design department willing to push their styling. Up until now its been a yawn fest...the new Avalon ( asides from some oversight....as Ive stated before ) stylistically is a knockout IMO...best effort for a while....

        I thought the xB was being cancelled. Is there any info on what the replacement will be? Haven't seen anything on here that I know of.

      Every interior they create recently looks like it was crafted by elementary school child without a good pair of scissors - they are very cheap inside.

      "Toyota - We make boring mainstream!" *yawn* is this really that much different from the previous one?

      I am guessing it gets the retro-80's inspired dash with the wavy leather cutting across it. Which I have not been a fan of on any of the recent designs, but that's always a matter of personal taste. The mid-size CUV class is an area that Toyota really does not dominate. Unlike the Camry does in mid-size cars. The Highlander usually comes in around 4th or 5th. Last year both the Edge and Explorer outsold it - separately. And it almost got beat by the Kia Sorento. So they really need to up their game if they want to be number one.

        I thought Highlander outsells all except Explorer. Edge doesnt compete with Highlander which is a 7 seater.

          Just because a vehicle has 7 seats doesn't mean it doesn't compete with something with 5. The RAV4 used to offer a 7 seat version, so I guess it didn't compete with the CR-V??

      Used to love the looks of the highlander until they lined the bottom edges with cheap black plastic. Now it looks like a tonka toy. Too bad.

      Toyotas version of "All new" is what others would call a midcycle refresh. Its the same here, as its been with the Camry, Corolla, etc.

      Yawwwwnnnnnnn.....I am sure it will be boring, just as many of their models. Toyota has always lacked in design and is jealous of the true American Auto Industry, there just isnt any passion to be had with their models. Buy em, drive em, and throw em away...even their CEO states that!

      Okay, reading between the lines here... It has be long-rumored that the next-gen Subaru Tribeca (or whatever it will be called) will be co-developed with the next Highlander. So... We know that Subaru will introducing an XV Crosstrek hybrid at NY. Might they have something else in store as well?
