First official image of the 2011 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander was first unveiled in 2000 and it wasn’t until 2008 that the second generation went on sale. Now, in apparent record time for the Highlander, the crossover will be receiving its first major facelift. The new 2011 Highlander will make its debut later this month at the Moscow Motor Show and will go on sale later this year.

The model will come with a redesigned front fascia that includes new headlights, a new grille with two horizontal lines instead of three, and the front bumper. While there are no details on the car’s specifications we expect to see a 273 HP 3.5 liter V6 engine under the hood and a 2.7 liter four-cylinder unit for the American market. A hybrid version will also be unveiled.

We have to inform you that even if you are looking at the European version, the exact same model will also be offered for the North American market. So what you see, is what you get!


Is it me or does this new Highlander look eerily like the Subaru Outback wagon? The lower air dam especially makes it look similar, including its long body and somewhat low stance.

I like the way these new 4x4’s come with a dual opening slots at the back where the glass bit can open on its own and the whole rear door can also lift if required
