Toyota Highlander For sale – This mid-size crossover SUV is not only tall in height, but it also stands tall among any other mid-size SUV in its category. As a matter of fact, it is one of the best selling SUVs in the Nigerian auto market. Based on the platform of the Toyota Camry (now called the Toyota K platform), the Highlander became one of the first mid-size SUVs to be based on the platform of a car when it was manufactured in 2000.

Since it was manufactured, it has gone through three complete generations of production and is currently in its fourth generation of production. And from the first model to be produced down to the latest of the models, the Toyota Highlander has been characterized by power, ruggedness, and versatility.
Toyota Highlander 2001 – 2007
Toyota quickly hit it off excellently with the first generation of the Toyota highlander. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, however, as Toyota already knew what customers wanted from their vast car manufacturing experience and most especially, the Lexus RX series which was already in production two years before the HIghlander.

When compared to the Lexus RX series, however, it was more spacious by a bit and it was significantly less costly. The Highlander came with a V6 or a four-cylinder engine and was also available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options.
Later in 2004, the engine was upgraded to a more powerful V6 engine. The 2004 model also came with some major improvements, such as an optional third-row seat, improved stability, and better handling. The controls on the dashboard were easy to figure out and reach. The 2006 model came with some improved features as well but the most notable of them was the improved engine: a more powerful V6 engine.
Toyota Highlander 2008 – 2013
This generation sported a more compact design than what we had in the first generation, and it was appreciated by many for this. Toyota really went all out with this generation as a lot of new and improved features were added to the SUV. the 3.6L V6 engine packed a lot of power without making the SUV compromise on nimble and stable handling. Also, the interior was much more spacious and comfortable to be in.
The generation mostly featured the front-wheel-drive option but there was an option of an all-wheel-drive that had a four-cylinder engine.
Everything was just quite remarkable with the second generation. The controls were easy to figure out and big enough to be able to make them out quite easily.
Toyota Highlander 2014 – 2018
By now, you should already know that Toyota doesn’t do a complete generation upgrade without adding a lot of new and innovative features to show for it. One of the first few things people really liked about this generation was that it served as the perfect ride for a family. The exterior style became more classy, unlike the rather bland exterior designs of the first two generations.
The handling of the third generation was definitely an upgrade from the previous generation. It was very responsive and agile. And as usual, the interior space was roomy.
The models in this generation featured a 3.5L V6 six-speed automatic transmission with an overall fuel efficiency of 20 mpg. Later in 2017, a new eight-speed automatic transmission was introduced, effectively making the SUV a much-coveted SUV.

This came with its own significant upgrades as well. The vehicle proved to be a really stable one with agile and responsive handling, coupled with more than enough space in the interior. The 3.5L V6 engine now has an eight-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is also about 22 mpg, making the SUV one to covet. The safety features that come with this current generation are also remarkable and up to date with the technology of the day.
