2018 Toyota Highlander. Ever since the New York International Motor Show in March, a little to see and driving the new Toyota Highlander 2018. 2018 Toyota Highlander gets its first major modifications since the current model arrives in 2014.
Of course, there is a new grille with different finishes for many different trim levels, but the bigger news is beyond that: new, direct injection V-6 powered by a transmission Eight-speed automatic. There will also be more heights that can be selected, with the arrival of the C model and two variants of the new 2018 Toyota Highlander hybrids, and less expensive.
While staying true to the 2018 Toyota Highlander, Toyota successfully updated 2018 models. Look for roof rails, a new dramatic grille, and dark-colored head lights. These mid-size SUVs will now be available in three new exterior colors – Metallic Silver Metallic, Roasted Pearl, and Red Cross.
The Red Salsa C will not be offered in a new trim level, which is designed to inject a little of sport into this three Row carrier family. Outside, the C will contain a darker dark silver grille and a headlamp surround, dark silver roof rails, and 19-inch wheels specific to this model. Red salsa pearl is the only outer c color. Inside, the black leather seats have a silver contrast stitching, and there are additional black accents.
The only big difference that has been achieved in C-ton is a more assertive comment. The package of safety equipment will be standard: front impact warning (with pedestrian detection), automatic pre-collision braking, lane departure warning, adaptive adjustment control, and high automatic beams. In addition, the blind alarm system filters to the Shell level for 2018, while Platinum Limited with the highest specifications wins a 360 degree display. Finally, and certainly less, the total number of USB ports jumps from one to five.
The 2018 Toyota Highlander will continue to offer a choice of three engines: a 2.7-liter four-cylinder (with front-wheel drive only), a V-6 (with front or four-wheel drive), and hybrid electric gas. Most of the highlanders are sold with the V-6, so it is noticeable that the Toyota trench the old 3.5-liter 2GR-unit in favor of a more efficient, direct injected 3.5-liter 2GR-VX V-6.
(Toyota has not released production numbers for the new engine, saying only that it will rally more than 270 current ponies engine, in 2017 Tacoma, where this engine appeared for the first time, it makes 278 horsepower. ) That V-new not four-cylinder – will benefit from Two additional gears in automatic transmission, as Toyota upgrades from six-speed to eight-speed. Finally, Toyota is also adding auto start-ups (on all but the LE base version) in an effort to save a little more fuel.
The net result should be the fuel economy that beats the current model, which was rated at 18 mpg city and 24 mpg with a fast four-wheel drive and 19/25 mpg with the front drive. (2018-model EPA numbers are not yet). As before, buyers who want even the best mileage have a hybrid option that gets as much as 28 mpg both in the city and on the highway, but previously, the hybrid (US $48,770) or Limited Platinum Limited was pricey. In 2018, Toyota makes hybrid more easily by introducing it at the base of Zellian decorations.
The 2018 Toyota Highlander will be exhibited at the next New York Motor Show and should roll in agents this fall. More details on the production of new power and fuel economy, as well as pricing for new trim levels, should be available sometime from time to time.
