2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Release Date: When Will the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander be Released? – Since quite some time ago, we have been aware that Toyota intends to expand the current offering of its three-row Highlander crossover vehicle to include a bigger model of the vehicle. After all, Toyota did not exactly keep the knowledge that the Grand Highlander was on its way a secret from the public. And now, at long last, we are able to introduce the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander.
The style of the 2024 Grand Highlander, which may be placed between the Highlander and the Sequoia (and might be said to overlap with the Sienna), does not precisely pave the way for any new territory to be explored. Its design is generally what you’d expect from a larger Toyota crossover, albeit it’s a touch boxier and more conservative than its younger sister in terms of appearance. But, it is not always a negative thing to be the case. The Grand Highlander has a really nice appearance all things considered.
Yet, when it comes to automobiles such as the Grand Highlander, the inside is more important than the outside design of the car. And if there’s one thing that Toyota wants you to know about the Grand Highlander, it’s that the cabin has a lot of room, which is something they really want you to know. Even more recently, the Japanese automobile manufacturer sent a press release that was completely focused on the notion that the third row should be large enough to sit full-grown people in comfort while still allowing for space in the rear for seven pieces of baggage.
The 12.3-inch center screen that is supported by both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto takes up most of the space at the front of the cabin. In addition to that, it has a large amount of storage space, as well as three USB ports, three cupholders, and a wireless charger. Furthermore, the covered storage compartment in the middle of the chairs is reportedly large enough to accommodate a tablet computer. Passengers seated in the second row have access to their own temperature settings, a number of cupholders, a location to store their phones, and a variety of additional storage choices. The situation is the same in the third row, with the exception that those passengers do not have access to temperature controls.
According to Toyota, the Grand Highlander sports a total of 13 cupholders and seven USB-C connections for connectivity. It may seem like a lot of cupholders, but when compared to the 19 cupholders that Subaru crammed into the Ascent, it’s really only a drop in the bucket. Moreover, the Grand Highlander has a total load capacity of about 98 cubic feet when the second and third seats are folded flat.
The Grand Highlander is equipped with the most recent generation of driver assistance and safety technology that Toyota has to offer. This includes features such as pre-collision detection with pedestrian recognition, lane departure alarm with steering aid, adaptive cruise control, lane tracing assistance, road sign detection, and automatic high beams. Also, it has something that Toyota refers to as Proactive Driving Support. According to Toyota, this feature may subtly slow down the vehicle as it goes into a turn.
In addition to this, though, Toyota claims that the 2024 Grand Highlander will be a performance-oriented SUV that will leave drivers thoroughly impressed. It comes with three different engine options, including a base engine that is a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 265 horsepower, as well as a hybrid engine that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors to produce a combined 243 horsepower. Both of these engines are included in the package.
The most interesting feature, on the other hand, is the Hybrid Max powertrain. It combines the turbocharged 2.4-liter engine with an electric motor to provide a total output of 362 horsepower. This is the most fascinating feature that this vehicle has to offer. One of the quickest sport utility vehicles (SUVs) in its category, the Grand Highlander can travel from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 6.3 seconds when equipped with the Hybrid Max engine. In addition, it has a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, making it an excellent option for families who want to go on hikes and camping trips together or who need to pull a trailer for business.
Yet, performance is determined by more than simply the engine. The 2017 Grand Highlander comes standard with an electronic power steering system, and it also has an optional adaptive variable suspension. Both of these features are examples of advancements in suspension tuning and handling. Even across rough terrain or through tight corners, a bump-free, and the relaxing ride is possible thanks to the use of these characteristics.
In addition, the all-wheel-drive system that comes standard on the Grand Highlander is built to provide the highest possible levels of grip and stability throughout a wide variety of terrains, making for a comfortable and worry-free time behind the wheel. It is anticipated that the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander will be a high-performing SUV that will combine power, efficiency, and comfort. As a result, it will be an excellent option for families that are often on the go.
2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Release Date: The formal launch of the Grand Highlander is scheduled to take place on April 15th, 2024, according to an announcement made by Toyota. Toyota has not provided any information on the cost in its announcements. But as soon as the Grand Highlanders are available for purchase, we anticipate seeing a large number of them driving about.
