2022 Toyota Highlander

With comfort, performance, and beauty in mind, the new 2022 Toyota Highlander asserts itself effortlessly at the top of the midsize SUV market. For customers in Queens, Valley Stream, Hempstead, Garden City, and surrounding areas, a Toyota Highlander from Advantage Toyota is an SUV ready for your commutes to school and to work, weekend getaways, and even long vacations to wherever the roads may take you. While Toyota has maintained a standard of excellence that’s evident in previous models, the new 2022 Toyota Highlander lets you drive the SUV of tomorrow, today.

Unquestioned Performance in a Toyota SUV

Under the hood of this powerful midsize Toyota SUV sits a 3.5L V6 engine with an impressive 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. Since the Toyota Highlander weighs slightly less than most of its competitors, you’ll notice an increase in acceleration capable of getting you up the roads of Queens with ease. This years’ Highlander trims come with two available all-wheel-drive systems available: a standard drivetrain that sends power to the rear wheels when extra traction is needed and a more advanced system for the XSE, Limited, and Platinum trims that can also adjust the amount of power between the left and right rear wheels, called torque vectoring.

If you want to take a ride into the future, the new 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is an excellent blend of performance with green initiatives in mind. With an impressive 0-60 of 7.3 seconds, this spacious SUV sports a 2.5L four-cylinder and two electric motors for a combined 243 horsepower.

Interior Comfort and Styling to Match

Having to sacrifice legroom for styling is a thing of the past. With the third-row seating giving riders more space than ever to stretch out, the new Toyota Highlander excels in being a midsize Toyota SUV comfortable enough for your whole family or group of friends. Offering available heated and ventilated front seats is a luxury but the available heated second-row seats are a step above the rest. For even more breathtaking luxury, gaze into the galaxy on your ride around New York with the available panoramic moonroof.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

With a standard of safety in mind customary to the Toyota brand, the new Toyota Highlander offers an impressive suite of adaptive and intuitive features. Features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking come standard in the various trims Toyota has available. Aside from the additional available features such as rear parking assist with automatic braking, Advantage Toyota offers drivers ToyotaCare that covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Fuel Economy For a Changing Landscape

Affordability in your travels is sometimes just as important as getting there comfortably. The EPA estimates that, when equipped with front-wheel drive, the 2022 Toyota Highlander will deliver up to an impressive 29 mpg on the highway. The trims with the all-wheel drivetrain still sport an EPA estimated 27 mpg on the highway, as well. To deliver a refined ride for a new age, the new 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers an unprecedented fuel economy in a midsize Toyota SUV, giving drivers an EPA estimated 36 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
