New York Auto Show – is like the winter. With its approach the producers (and not only they) fall more and more leaflets about their premieres, and to the beginning of the show... trees will be completely naked. I mean, there would be nothing to talk about.
Here is the same situation, 2014 Toyota Highlander has already fallen from the tree (author - well, you get in any sense) before the motor show which will begin two weeks later (March, 27).
The manufacturer has officially confirmed that the world premiere of the 2014 Toyota Highlander will take place exactly at the Auto Show in New York. If to consider the fact that sales of Highlander firmly holds the second position after the Toyota RAV4, the next generation 2014 Toyota Highlander premiere must be resounding.
Crossover with three rows of seats will make a strong competitive to Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Chevrolet Traverse mid-size crossover. In these class people used to think that good manners are having such range of powertrains: 4-cylinders engine for the basic version, V6 engine and a hybrid powertrain, consisting of a 6-cylinder engine and electric motor. Last modification must be all-wheel drive, and its fuel consumption should not exceed 8.4 liters in combined cycle.
If you remember the 2011 Highlander, there may be mentioned such advantages, as easy access to the third row of seats through the "disappearing" second row. Besides, the all-wheel drive version with a V6 accelerated to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds. So it was lightweight and quick. But feel free to write shortcomings as fake tree in the saloon and low-grade plastic.
We do not think that 2014 Toyota Highlander will present us with some surprises on the part of running characteristics and dimensions, but we expect some good changes in the interior. If the Japanese keep the tendency to download the weight of the car, it will wear 3.5-liter V6, and a hybrid powertrain most of all.
As for prices, the sales of 2013 Toyota Highlander have started from 30,000 dollars and finished by 47,000 dollars for top modification.
Dear readers, we understand that this is not enough for you, but be patient. You will know everything soon.
