The new Toyota Highlander is an adventure-ready SUV that really does it all. It has a classy cabin and enough power underneath the hood to satisfy drivers in Pittsfield. There are also more standard and available safety features than ever before, making this a great time for families to explore the Highlander further.


First, let's talk about what is underneath the hood. All five trim levels available have the same 3.5-liter V6 engine underneath the hood. It gives the Highlander the ability to make 295-horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive come standard. All-wheel-drive is also available if you plan on leaving the beaten path around Latham.

Sticking with the entry-level L trim will give you plenty to love in your Highlander. It has comfort features such as tri-zone automatic climate control as well as advanced tech features, including an eight-inch touchscreen. You can use this screen to access the features given to you by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which are also standard.

Safety & Technoloy

At Haddad Toyota, we love that all variations of the Highlander come with the Safety Sense 2.0 bundle. Included are helpful driver assistance features such as automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, road sign recognition, a pre-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane trace assist. Also included is the advanced pedestrian and cyclist detection feature that is growing in popularity.

As you move up to higher trim levels, even more tech and safety features are available. The LE, for example, adds a blind-spot monitor to its list of standard equipment. Going with the Limited trim level or higher will mean getting navigation as well as a premium audio system. At the top of the trim ladder is the luxurious and sophisticated Platinum trim level. It has a beautiful 12.3-inch touchscreen as well as a digital rearview mirror. Other exciting upgrades found here include a head-up display, surround-view camera system, and a panoramic sunroof.
