The Toyota Highlander is a very well made crossover SUV. Its popularity is partly because of Toyota's good name, which promises top-notch quality, durability and reliability. The Highlander is available in base or Limited trim, each with front-wheel drive or full-time all-wheel drive. A choice of two powertrains is now available: A 2.4-liter inline-4, rated at 160 horsepower, comes standard. A 3.3-liter V6 that produces 230 horsepower is optional on the base Highlander and standard on the Limited. Four-cylinder models come with a four-speed automatic transmission; V6 models get a five-speed automatic. Seating for five comes standard, but the Highlander can carry up to seven passengers with the optional third-row seat. Safety features include front seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters, front airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for the first two rows of seats, Vehicle Stability Control and traction control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and Brake Assist. For 2007, the Toyota Highlander only receives minimal exterior and safety changes.
