However Toyota thinks it may well be larger.
A Highlander, however Grand
The corporate this week teased a brand new car with a reputation that tells you maximum of what you want to understand. The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander will make its first public look at subsequent February’s Chicago Auto Display.
Toyota says it “grows the SUV circle of relatives as without equal road-trip car.”
For now, that’s about all Toyota says about it. However a teaser picture tells us no less than two items of a very powerful knowledge.
First, there’s the most obvious. It’s a blurred shot, and all you’ll make out is the rear of the SUV. That is sensible, because the Grand Highlander is more than likely most commonly a Highlander with a larger butt. We will’t see the rear overhang because the wheels are obscured. However the level of establishing a stretched model of an SUV is so as to add more room for shipment and rear-seat passengers.
So we suppose the Grand Highlander offers extra dwelling area to the 3rd row and load area in the back of it.
It does glance restyled from the present Highlander’s cabin car, with two rows of skinny LED back lights (two rows — Genesis designers should be seething. That’s their very best transfer).
The opposite clue is a badge that’s a bit laborious to make out. The ground of the tailgate reads “hybridMAX.” That’s the identify of a powertrain Toyota has used at the 2023 Crown sedan-ish-crossover-like-thing. The Crown combines a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine with an electrical motor, making 340 overall horsepower.
We’ll know extra in February.
Oh, and we must additionally word that anyplace Toyota is going, its Lexus luxurious logo follows, just a bit dressier. The Grand Highlander would possibly percentage a lot of its structure with the impending Lexus TX.
