Toyota has long been at the forefront of automotive ingenuity and development, and that cutting-edge approach can be seen throughout the brand’s catalog – from its work advancing hybrid capabilities to its work creating safer and more capable driver assistance features. That approach can also be seen by looking back to 2001, when Toyota put the midsize SUV segment on notice with the release of its all-new Toyota Highlander lineup.
That inaugural Highlander lineup was like nothing anyone had ever seen before thanks to its ability to handle anything and everything life threw at it – from daily commutes and errand runs to weekend adventures and off-road excursions. And now, the 2021 Toyota Highlander lineup – which is available now right here at Royal South Toyota in Bloomington, IN – is continuing that impressive legacy thanks to a full slate of updates, upgrades, enhancements and improvements, including a new Highlander XSE trim level.
We ended our introduction by pointing out that the 2021 Toyota Highlander lineup here at Royal South Toyota in Bloomington, IN, has been fully upgraded and updated for the new model year. Now, those improvements and enhancements can be found throughout the 2021 Highlander, but some of our favorites are found within the lineup’s next generation powertrain.
That’s because the 2021 Toyota Highlander boasts a next generation 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of pumping out up to 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. And that’s not all it can do, either.
In fact, thanks to the 2021 Toyota Highlander lineup’s available towing package, the lineup can now tow more than ever before. More specifically, the 2021 Highlander lineup can tow up to 5,000 pounds. And maneuvering that trailer attached to your 2021 Highlander is no longer a chore now that the lineup features a new Trailer Sway Control system and a new Vehicle Stability Control system.
In line with those towing enhancements, the 2021 Highlander can also haul more than ever, thanks to its upgraded 73.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume.
