Special features for 2008

The new 2008 Toyota Highlander is nearly a half-step larger in size, offering significantly more vehicle and a roomier interior without a major jump in price. The base model is a strong value, especially considering the now-standard V6, while the Sport and Limited can be loaded to the gills with luxury features. Also, the Highlander offers a very robust list of standard safety features, and the most inclusive air bag coverage ever in a Toyota vehicle, with a total of seven air bags.
With third-row seating offering plenty of room for a full-size family, the 2008 Toyota Highlander remains a top-selling SUV with more power and creature comforts than ever before. Available in Base, Sport and Limited trims, with FWD or AWD, the Highlander features passenger capabilities of up to seven and a solid 270 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with 249 lbs.-ft of torque and a standard 5-speed automatic transmission. The Highlander comes equipped with front and rear air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, full power accessories and AM/FM/CD/MP3/Satellite radio.
