Get ready, Whitehorse -- the family-favourite Toyota Highlander has been redesigned to be sportier, stronger and more luxurious than ever before! This spacious SUV boasts seating for up to 8, generous cargo space, a comfortable interior and a plethora of standard driver assists that topples what the competition has to offer. 2021 Highlander continues to shine from behind the wheel, as it’s engineered with sport-tuned suspension, a stiff rear anti-roll bar, all-wheel drive, a durable lightweight frame and seriously responsive handling. The result? A fun, comfortable and confident full-size SUV that was built with adventurous Yukon families in mind.
The 2021 Toyota Highlander is available in multiple trims and powertrains, making it easy for Whitehorse drivers to build the perfect SUV for their lifestyle. Eco-conscious Canadians will appreciate that you can get all of the space and performance you need from a full-size SUV plus the efficiency of a hybrid engine in the 2021 Highlander LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum models. The 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid engine delivers a juicy 243 horsepower, and is also available with all-wheel drive - a must-have for drivers in Northern Canada. 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid models (including those with all-wheel drive) secure best-in-class fuel economy in the three-row SUV category, using just 6.7-litres of fuel every 100 kilometres.
New for 2021, Toyota introduced the Highlander XSE, which is the sportiest model in Highlander’s 21-year history. This trimline features an upgraded chassis and stiffer suspension for racing-inspired handling, all-wheel drive, dual-tipped exhaust, a redesigned front grille, jet-black exterior accents, unique interior styling, 20-inch alloy wheels, Toyota Premium Connected Services and so much more. On top of it all, Highlander’s beefy 295-horsepower output and 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity makes whichever 2021 Toyota Highlander model you choose a confident and capable companion for life in the Yukon.
“This is by far the best Highlander to drive yet, and is also one of the most composed vehicles in the segment. It doesn't feel that big behind the wheel, and the chassis and steering work nicely in concert with each other to create a driving experience that feels consistent regardless of whether you're driving the kids to school, on a long highway trip or find yourself on a winding mountain road.”
Modern families need modern solutions, and the 2021 Toyota Highlander delivers with a massive suite of standard tech and safety features. All models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, allowing you to keep your hands safely on the wheel while you access Google Maps, music, phone and messaging services, or even locating a place to stop and feed the kids while you’re on the road. Enjoy next-level convenience with Toyota Premium Connected Services, which includes 24/7 access to a live agent for things like real-time navigation and emergency services, and a handy remote-connect smartphone app that keeps you connected to your Toyota at all times.
No matter what the unpredictable Yukon puts in your path, you’ll drive with confidence knowing that you’ve got Toyota Safety Sense by your side. The 2021 Highlander is the first Toyota in Canada to come equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+, which includes a revolutionary collection of accident-prevention systems like Pre-Collision Warning with Auto Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Alert with Lane-Keeping Assist, Radar Cruise Control, Auto High Beams, Left Turn Intersection Support and more. Most trims also come with available Blind-Spot Monitor, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert with Auto Emergency Braking, Intelligent Clearance Sonar and a 360-Degree Bird’s Eye View Camera.
