Athletic design

Athletic design

The 2015 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 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.

Chromtec® wheels

Chromtec® wheels

Even the wheels were designed to turn heads. Highlander Limited looks sharp with 19-in. Chromtec® wheels, XLE and LE Plus have unique 18-in. machined-face 5-spoke alloys, and LE features a stylish 5-spoke alloy wheel.

Easy in/easy out

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.

Upscale seating

Upscale seating

Highlander's available leather-trimmed heated 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat gives you maximum comfort on all your journeys. Highlander Limited features perforated leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats for all-season comfort. The distinctive accent-color seat stitching adds visual contrast and unique style. You can also keep your hands warm on chilly days with the heated steering wheel available with the Platinum Package.

A smarter dash

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.

Highlander’s roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats. Available second-row captain’s chairs help Highlander comfortably seat seven and offer the same great versatility. You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the Limited grade with Platinum Package.

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.

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.
