    Athletic design

    The 2016 Highlander was designed with excitement in mind. A bold, aggressive grille aids airflow, while the available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) add style and visibility. And its available Chromtec® roof rails are integrated, which means when you aren’t using them to carry your accessories, their aerodynamic shape minimizes the noise coming from overhead.

    Adjustable power liftgate

    Adjustable power liftgate

    This available feature allows you to open the rear liftgate and adjust how high it opens with the press of a button. If you have a garage with low clearance or a covered parking spot, you know how much this matters. And there’s no need to open the entire liftgate to quickly grab something small. Just use the available flip-up rear hatch window for easy access.

    Easy in/easy out

    Busy days mean getting in and out of your vehicle a lot. Let’s make it easier. We started by adjusting the cushion height, creating more room between the seat and the roofline of Highlander.

    A smarter dash

    The dashboard gets touched a lot. That’s why we made it with softer materials that are easier on your fingers. It also gets looked at a lot, so we added metallic accents and available wood-grain details to please the eyes. Its handy in-dash shelf gives you easy access to the power and USB ports and keeps cables neatly stowed away.

    Increased cargo space

    Increased cargo space

    Waste no space. We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear. And since every journey’s different, Highlander is there to adapt. Sometimes you’ve got lots of people, lots of gear, or a mix of both. The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.

    • Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.

    Ventilated disc brakes

    Ventilated disc brakes

    When brakes get too hot, they can become less effective. It’s called brake fade, and it’s a surprise no driver wants. To help prevent it, Highlander’s front brakes use a ventilated disc design, which helps to dissipate heat and ensure confidence in the vehicle’s stopping power.
