Release date for the 2016 Toyota Highlander

Someone could make the easy mistake that there have always been crossover SUVs dominating the road and showroom space at dealerships like Toyota of Naperville. It’s hard to say where the crossover SUV started, but what is well known is that the Toyota Highlander was one of the first to become hugely popular. Since the Toyota crossover SUV debuted, 15 years ago, it has only gotten better and attracted more customers. Before the release date for the 2016 Toyota Highlander arrives, Toyota of Naperville wants potential buyers to understand what they are in store for the upcoming model-year.

As one of the top models in its class, the overall changes to the 2016 Highlander are pretty subtle. The 2016 model-year is likely the last blast for the current third generation. There are rumblings that the crossover SUV is due for a pretty extensive redesign due out next year or the year after. However, all of the same elements that have made the Highlander successful are making a return visit for 2016. This include the incredibly spacious cabin that can seat up to eight passengers but still manages to offer sharp handling.

Flexibility is really where the 2016 Toyota Highlander succeeds with buyers. The same space that can accommodate two three-row bench seats can be quickly and easily be converted into a massive interior cargo space, offering up to 83.7 cubic-feet to work with. That amount of space accounts for more than half of the total cabin volume available within the 2016 Highlander. Additionally, some shoppers at Toyota of Naperville may opt for the option of replacing the second row bench and adding a pair of captain’s chairs.

From a performance aspect, the 2016 Toyota Highlander remains as capable as ever. Potential buyers will have to choose between a highly fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine or more power generated from the V-6 upgrade. The base engine can help drivers achieve up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway and the 270-horsepower V-6 can give owners the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
