Toyota Highlander 2006 for Sale

All designs are now all-wheel-drive; the front-wheel-drive variation available in 2005 is terminated. Both models currently have 5- or seven-passenger seats; furthermore, the conventional Highlander gets 16-inch alloy wheels with a full-size extra, wheel locks and also fog lamps, while the Crossbreed obtains 17-inch wheels, chrome accented front grille, new front bumper, rear LED taillights and chrome certificate plate trim.

With the Crossbreed signing up with the Prius in the line-up, Toyota claims it is now the very first vehicle manufacturer to supply a complete gasoline/electric crossbreed in both the intermediate SUV and also mid-size automobile sectors. The Highlander Crossbreed is powered by a brand-new version of Toyota's Crossbreed Synergy Drive powertrain, specially-tweaked for a midsize SUV. It features an electronically-controlled constantly variable transmission (CVT) and also on-demand digital four-wheel-drive. The gasoline engine works seamlessly with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator that establishes a peak system output equivalent to 268 hp, but with half the fuel usage of a conventionally-powered lorry.

The Highlander is a "full crossbreed", meaning that it can run in gas or electrical settings, along with a mix of both. Under typical conditions, the Crossbreed operates in front-wheel-drive setting, and immediately switches to 4WD when extra traction is needed. The Synergy Drive powertrain powers the front wheels, while an electric motor drives the back ones.

Functions on the gasoline-only Highlander include CD/cassette player with six speakers, air conditioning, towel seats, 60/40 split back bench, power locks with keyless entrance, power windows, floor mats, freight cover, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, heated mirrors, variable periodic wipers, and also haze lights. The seven-passenger design adds a third-row bench seat with fold-down seatback. Available choices are a Leather Bundle, and a Limited Bundle that includes a long list of functions, including leather inside, 17-inch wheels, side as well as drape airbags and also power sunroof.

The five-passenger Crossbreed includes multi-information screen, LED taillamps and also 17-inch wheels.

The seven-passenger Crossbreed comes only in Minimal trim, as well as adds updated CD/cassette with eight audio speakers as well as wheel-mounted controls, automated climate control, complementary back heating unit, warmed leather seats, outside temperature scale, leather-wrapped wheel, incorporated garage door opener, side as well as drape airbags, anti-theft system, power sunroof as well as light control system.

All models supply a pleasant trip, however the seven-passenger variation is that in name only; the 3rd row of seats is cramped and also ideal mostly for smaller sized kids. Unless you're hauling seven passengers on a regular basis, the five-passenger deals much more freight space without folding down one more row of seats.

The Hybrid is up-to-date technology, with a horsepower increase as well as far better gas economy compared to its gasoline-only twin, yet a $6,350 premium in base type and $6,415 in Restricted trim will certainly take a while to repay at the gas pumps, despite having climbing gas costs; purchase this to save the earth, not necessarily your wallet.
