2015 Toyota Highlander Limited
The all-new Highlander was completely redesigned in 2014, with only a few minor tweaks in 2015. Toyota’s crossover SUV — built on the Camry platform — has always been a well-respected vehicle, but it’s exterior was rather bland looking. The third-generation Highlander gets a dramatic makeover with a larger, aggressive grille, LED Daytime Running Lights for added style and visibility, and integrated, aerodynamic Chromtec roof rails for a bolder look. It still looks closer to a minivan then an off-road SUV, but the new package works well, offering front-drive architecture, AWD capability and all-around family-oriented transportation.
Can tackle the great outdoors and still handle everyday driving with equal dexterity.
The XSE stands out from other Camrys on the road.
Toyota’s flagship sedan, with styling and luxuries that position it closer to a Lexus.
