The Grand Highlander boasts an eye-catching exterior design that perfectly complements its spacious interior across all three rows. While taking inspiration from the Highlander shape, the vehicle introduces a fresh and innovative approach with its trapezoidal, hammerhead front grille and optional 20" wheels. The sleek and sophisticated design carries through to the rear, accentuated by a sharp rear bumper. The hybrid MAX powertrain variant elevates the experience even further with the inclusion of a dual exhaust option.
The exterior of the Grand Highlander is not only aesthetically pleasing but also highly functional. The body-colored rear pillars communicate a sense of strength and highlight the practicality of the third row when observed on the road. The black rockers contribute to the SUV's elevated appearance. The side surface seamlessly connects the doors, fenders, and front and rear tires, resulting in a clean and dynamic design. For the Hybrid MAX grades, an exclusive front and rear lower bumper are available, adding a touch of premium refinement to the overall look.
The Grand Highlander comes equipped with cutting-edge technology, featuring the latest offerings from Toyota. This includes the standard 12.3-inch Toyota Audio Multimedia system, which has been meticulously designed and engineered by Toyota's Connected Technologies team. Drivers of the Grand Highlander will also enjoy a wide range of advanced connectivity and convenience features, including Over-the-Air (OTA) updates.
Interacting with the system is easy, thanks to intuitive touch and voice activation controls. Through the available Connected Service Drive Connect, both drivers and passengers can access features such as Intelligent Assistant, Cloud Navigation, and Destination Assist. By utilizing Intelligent Assistant, users can activate the system with simple phrases like "Hey Toyota" and then give voice commands to search for directions, find Points of Interest (POI), adjust audio controls, change cabin temperatures, and more. Cloud Navigation, an available onboard navigation solution, takes advantage of cloud technology to download the latest map, traffic, and routing information. For up-to-date search capabilities, POI search utilizes Google Points-of-Interest data. Additionally, Destination Assist provides access to 24/7 live agent assistance to help locate the next destination.
Toyota delivers a combination of performance and efficiency in the groundbreaking Grand Highlander. Available in Canada with three powertrain options and standard all-wheel drive (AWD), there is a choice for every driver. The lineup includes the well-balanced 2.4L turbo gas engine, the highly efficient 2.5L hybrid, and the performance-focused Hybrid MAX with an impressive 362 horsepower and 400-pound feet of torque, along with standard AWD.
All three powertrain options feature three Drive Modes (Sport, Eco, Normal) to enhance the driving experience. Additionally, the gas and Hybrid MAX powertrains offer Multi-Terrain Select with three modes (Mud & Sand, Rock & Dirt, Snow), providing increased capability for on and off-road driving. The Hybrid MAX powertrain sets a new benchmark for Toyota mid-sized SUVs, offering exceptional power and performance. Drivers can enjoy impressive acceleration, with a 0-60 mph time of 6.3 seconds. Furthermore, the Hybrid MAX powertrain boasts a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs, adding to its versatility and utility.
The 2024 Grand Highlander will be equipped with the latest version of Toyota Safety Sense, TSS 3.0, as a standard feature. This comprehensive suite of safety technologies includes:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Lane Tracing Assist
- Road Sign Assist
- Automatic High Beams
The newer addition to the TSS System includes Proactive Driving Assist: a system that utilizes the vehicle's camera and radar to provide gentle braking during curves or when maintaining a safe distance from preceding vehicles, pedestrians, or bicyclists. It supports driving tasks but should not be considered a substitute for the Pre-Collision System and operates under different circumstances.
