Redesigned for the latest model year, the newest installment of the Highlander retains its popularity amongst St. Albans and Colchester area drivers with its well-rounded design and practical nature.

What's New for the 2020 Toyota Highlander?

Major revisions have been made to the Highlander to better suit a wider variety of driver needs. Apple CarPlay and Android have been integrated into the model's infotainment system while the SUV now touts a roomier cargo area behind its third-row seats.

Performance and Capabilities

The Highlander rides with plenty of ponies under the hood as delivered via a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. With a robust 5,000-pound towing capacity, the Highlander can easily handle moving your small fishing boat out to the Shelburne Bay Boat Ramp near South Burlington for a day spent trying your luck with the family or some friends. If you're keener on using the Highlander as a regular daily driver, the model can easily reach a sensible 24 mpg with this gasoline-driven powertrain. Those St. Albans drivers who find themselves behind the wheel on I-89 more often than not will appreciate the impressive fuel-economy returns of the available Hybrid AWD powertrain that offers a Best-in-Class EPA-estimated 35 combined mpg. With an available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel-Drive system and Muti-Terrain Select capabilities, the Highlander can easily tackle any road surface with confidence.

Interior Features and Cargo-Carrying Capacity

The new Toyota Highlander sports a well thought out interior layout with simple infotainment controls, a driver-oriented center console, and range of convenient creature comfort niceties including the likes of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a total of five USB ports, a top-tier JBL sound system, and digital rearview mirror accessible through a 12.3-inch touch-screen center. Further useful are split-level in-dash storage trays that let you easily stow your cell phone, wallet, purse, and charging cables when on the move without cluttering the center console area. You can't cover the new Highlander without touching on its versatile interior layout. The model boasts third-row seating to seat up to eight passengers while also offering a grand total of 84.3 cubic feet of cargo space with all its seats folded flat.

Safety Features

Safety is a priority and prime concern on any roadway. Whether you're traveling the backroads on a lonely winter night or are trekking around Colchester and Essex Junction during bustling driving times, the Highlander can handle it all with a standard Toyota Safety Sense bundle. Included in this array are features like a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, and Road Sign Assist.
