Reimagined and Redesigned: Meet the New 2020 Toyota Highlander


What’s New in the 2020 Toyota Highlander?

Wondering about the new features in the 2020 Toyota Highlander? This model has been redesigned for the 2020 model year, offering refreshing upgrades and the latest features. From powerful new engine options and off-road capability to your favorite features now standard, the new 2020 Toyota Highlander has some exciting upgrades we’re sure you’ll love. Keep on reading to learn more about what’s new, and then stop by Rivertown Toyota to experience the 2020 Toyota Highlander for yourself.

New: Innovative Features Now Standard

Keeping connected to all your favorite apps is easy, with standard Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Waze and more. That goes for your passengers, too. With four USB ports and two 12V outlets, everyone’s devices can stay charged for the ride. Plus, you’ll get advanced voice recognition and hands-free phone capability, so you can accomplish more while keeping your eyes on the road.

Speaking of voice commands, the new 2020 Toyota Highlander features standard Driver Easy Speak. This system uses a microphone in the overhead console to amplify your voice and broadcast it through the rear speakers, so being heard is no longer a strain.

New: Power Under the Hood

The 2020 Toyota Highlander features a standard 3.5L V6 engine, offering you 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque all while getting an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city and 29 highway MPG for the front-wheel drive model. So feel free to take the more adventurous way home.

While you’re out exploring, you’ll be able to bring your toys and trailers along with a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Standard Trailer Sway Control is there to help you monitor and maintain your cargo with ease, and the standard integrated backup camera makes maneuvers simple in the 2020 Toyota Highlander.

New: Cool Style Options

Along with a refreshed design for 2020, the new Toyota Highlander offers available 20-inch wheel options for the first time. Adding to the fresh, modern look are standard LED headlights, and available auto-leveling LED projector-beam headlights help to better illuminate your way.

Inside the 2020 Toyota Highlander, you’ll have more usable space with a soft-touch roll-top center console with a removable utility tray. Split-level storage compartments open up the interior, and available ambient lighting adds a cozy hue to every drive.

New: Off-Road Capability

Feeling daring? Go ahead and try that new route: the 2020 Toyota Highlander now offers enhanced all-wheel drive capability. Multi-Terrain Select detects slippage and regulates wheelspin to maximize driving performance. You can choose between MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL for improved traction no matter where your path takes you.

To upgrade that all-wheel drive performance further, available Dynamic Torque Vectoring boosts responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the power to the rear and distributing more power to the wheel that most needs it.
