2005 Toyota Highlander

2005 Toyota Highlander

For 2005, Toyota's crossover mid-size sport-utility vehicle includes a roof rack with crossbars, remote keyless entry, and a cargo cover as standard equipment. The Highlander shares platforms and certain components with the Lexus RX330. Here, though, a fuel-efficient 160-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is the standard powerplant, while the RX's 3.3-liter 230-horsepower V-6 is optional. An automatic transmission is standard across the line, and all-wheel drive is available for added grip on wet or snowy roads, or for light-duty off-roading. Toyota's Vehicle Stability Control system, and anti-lock brakes with brake assist and brakeforce distribution come standard. A third-row seat is available to expand the Highlander's seating capacity to seven riders. Like its Lexus equivalent, a hybrid-powered gas-electric version of the Highlander is expected sometime during 2005.

Very nice vehicle. It has everything that I needed in an SUV. My only complaint, and it's very minor, is having to reach a little for the touch screen.
