2022 Toyota Highlander Overview

Drive Taylor is the premier Toyota dealer serving Boardman Lancaster Hermitage Youngstown Pittsburgh, and we are thrilled to announce that the new Highlander is now available to test-drive, purchase and lease. While the three-row midsize crossover segment is a rather crowded space in America, the Highlander continues to stand out because it is comfortable and practical but also because it boasts an interior and exterior style and a loadout of technologies and amenities that belie its price point. Just a couple years out from the launch of a new platform, there are no major changes to the Highlander. Toyota has, however, added and refined standard and optional features and introduced the Hybrid Bronze Edition, which is another stylish option for those considering a hybrid model.
