There is a lot more competition in the three-row crossover SUV class than there was just a few years ago. The 2021 Toyota Highlander in Milford, CT is just a year removed from a pretty intensive redesign. Most automakers wouldn’t expend a lot of resources to upgrade the next model year.
Toyota bucked conventional wisdom again by introducing the new XSE trim grade. Not only will the 2021 Highlander XSE offer its own exclusive interior appointment options, but the new trim is also exclusively equipped with the Toyota all-wheel-drive system for confidence while driving one less than ideal road conditions. Independent reviews have praised the 2021 Highlander for its quiet and comfortable ride quality, excellent outward visibility and strong performance scores.
Colonial Toyota customers can start the pre-ordering process for the 2021 Toyota Highlander today by calling, 203-403-6890.
Every 2021 Toyota Highlander coming to the Colonial Toyota showroom will use the same powertrain. A naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine will be under the hood and it will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All 2021 Highlander versions will be able to produce up to 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. The 2021 Toyota Highlander can be equipped with front- or all-wheel-drive and all models can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
Interior passenger and cargo space have always been a strong suit of the Highlander platform. That is going to continue for the 2021 model year. All models have three rows of seats with a passenger capacity of seven or eight people, depending on which trim grade they take home. When the 2021 Highlander is at full passenger capacity, there will still be 16 cubic-feet of cargo volume to use. Owners can also fold the third row down to make 48.4 cubic-feet available. The maximum cargo configuration in the 2021 Toyota Highlander will make up to 84.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume to use.
The 2021 Highlander makes a strong case for being one of the most advanced crossover SUVs in its class. All trim grades are equipped with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that will have access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications. Owners will also be able to connect their 2021 Toyota Highlander to the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant as well. If more connectivity is needed, a high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot can also be activated.
