The 2021 Toyota Highlander in Gaithersburg MD

The Toyota Highlander Moves Family, Friends, & Cargo Around Gaithersburg

The Toyota Highlander has commanded the three-row midsize-SUV segment for years. Now in its fourth generation, the Highlander rides with more cabin space, better technology, and the automaker's most recent rollout of driver-assistive aids and safety systems. In the field of transporting friends, family, day-to-day items, and recreational gear, few do it better than the ever-capable Toyota Highlander. Check out a few of this year's highlighted features and learn why drivers from Baltimore and Arlington continue to choose this Toyota SUV over its competitors year after year.

A Diverse Menu of Color & Trim Configurations

The Highlander offers itself in a total of ten trim configurations. Whether you're interested in maximizing the value of your dollar with an entry level model or you're seeking top-tier refinement and a high-end feel with a range-topper, there's something for every shopper and budget in the Highlander trim model lineup. New for this year is a Highlander XSE trim which includes distinct features like 20-inch machine-face alloy wheels, a twin-tip exhaust setup, your choice of either SofTex-trimmed or leather-trimmed first- and second-row seats, heated first-row seats, and a suspension and steering system tuned for enhanced dynamics. Eight color schemes are offered throughout the model lineup as well as a range of wheel sizes and exterior options.

Two Powertrain Options & All-Wheel-Drive Ensure Optimal Performance

Your duties likely rotate throughout the weeks, months, and seasons. The Highlander rides with either a 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of producing 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque, or a 2.5-liter inline-four engine paired with an electric motor, exclusive with Highlander Hybrid models. The V6 engine is plenty strong and is wedded to a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. Power is delivered to the road via a standard Front-Wheel-Drive setup which is ideal for optimal fuel-economy returns while All-Wheel-Drive is available for those weekend warriors that enjoy trekking off the paved roads around Baltimore and Arlington.

User-Friendly Connectivity Features Provide Entertainment While on the Move

Communicate with passengers throughout the Toyota Highlander SUV with the Driver Easy Speak system and tune into your favorite radio shows, music, and catch up on podcasts with a standard eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa systems. Step up to the Highlander Limited model and you'll be provided an enhanced JBL premium sound system as well as in-cabin navigation.

Exceptional Safety Features to Protect What Matters Most

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, the automaker's bundle of driver aids and safety features is included throughout the Highlander trim ladder to ensure every shopper is provided an equal level of security, peace of mind, and maximum safety when navigating around the Alexandria area.

The Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 system builds upon prior driver-assistive suites with a total of six active features including:

  • Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, Daytime Bicycle Detection
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane-Tracing Assist

Amenities Provide Maximum Comfort Through the Changing Seasons

The Highlander blends day-to-day utility with a premium feel and comfortable amenities in its roomy cabin. Plenty of cabin space and folding second and third rows help better facilitate easy and simple item-moving ability while creature comforts come in the form of a standard tri-zone climate control system and ergonomic seating. A leather-trimmed steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, and leather upholstery are also available throughout the Highlander's trim litter. The Highlander also features available second-row captain's chairs which reduces seating from eight to seven but better promotes passenger comfort and gives the cabin a more refined aesthetic.
