The 2018 Highlander features an inspired front fascia with a dynamic front grille and expressive headlights, making for one bold first impression. With a unique grille tailored for each grade, there's a Highlander that perfectly matches your style.
Highlander shows off its athletic side with a selection of available alloy wheels. The sporty Highlander SE has 19-in. multi-spoke alloy wheels with a machined finish. Highlander Limited Platinum has an added touch of sophistication with 19-in. 5-spoke Dark Chromtec® alloy wheels.
5000-lb. towing capacity
Some adventures are so big you have to tow them. No problem. Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000 lbs.
Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. "Added vehicle equipment" includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
Stop and Start Engine System
The efficient Stop and Start Engine System (S&S) is available on V6 gas-powered Highlanders. This technology shuts the engine off when Highlander is at rest-like when at a stoplight-to help you save more fuel. When it's time to go, releasing the brake pedal seamlessly restarts the engine so you can effortlessly get on your way.
Before towing, confirm Stop and Start Engine System is disengaged.
Available All-Wheel Drive
When the road gets adventurous, Highlander embraces it with available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD). It distributes engine power from front to rear and manages the vehicle's braking system from side to side, giving you better control.
Power and performance
The available 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine helps give Highlander the perfect blend of power and efficiency. Engineered using Toyota's next-generation technologies, this advanced engine is mated to a sophisticated Direct Shift-8AT (8-speed Automatic Transmission) to help give you more control. These components work brilliantly together to help give Highlander brisk acceleration off the line, and more mpg when cruising at speed.
Optimizing fuel efficiency means making enhancements all over-like the transmission and efficient engine that help to enhance EPA mpg estimates and earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV-II) rating.
Let's shine a light on style. Expressive headlights now feature integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL), amplifying the 2018 Highlander's signature look. The stylish SE grade ups the excitement with its dark-black-accent headlights, while Highlander Limited Platinum has a powerful presence of its own with chrome-accent headlight housings. Every Highlander gets brilliant LED taillights for added visibility in the rear.
Seating for up to 8
Highlander's roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats. Available second-row captain's chairs help Highlander comfortably seat seven and offer the same great versatility. You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the Limited grade with Platinum Package.
Waste no space. We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear. And since every journey's different, Highlander is there to adapt. Sometimes you've got lots of people, lots of gear or a mix of both. The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.
In-seat entertainment for everyone. Your passengers have the whole sky to entertain them, thanks to the available panoramic moonroof that is part of the Platinum Package.
Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough. Let the available rear-seat Blu-ray DiscTM entertainment system help. The 9-in. display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones.
With a total of five USB ports, it's easy to power up the family road trip. Three USB ports up front and two USB ports in the rear help everyone keep their favorite portable electronic devices plugged in.
May not be compatible with all mobile phones, MP3/WMA players and like models.
Qi compatible wireless charging
Highlander's available Bird's Eye View Camera helps you see nearby objects and get in to and out of the smallest spaces with ease. The system includes Perimeter Scan-an innovative feature that displays live, rotating 360-degree views of your surroundings when you're parked. The Bird's-Eye-View Camera does not provide a comprehensive view of the area surrounding the vehicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your mirrors to confirm surrounding clearance. Environmental conditions may limit effectiveness and view may become obscured.
Driver Easy Speak
Highlander's available Driver Easy Speak feature has a built-in microphone up front that picks up your voice and transmits it to rear-seat passengers through the back speakers.
EntuneTM Multimedia Bundle

Blind spot & rear cross traffic
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) is designed to heighten your awareness on the road by alerting you when a vehicle enters a blind spot on either side. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) works similarly. When you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, it provides audible and visual indicators to warn you of approaching vehicles. Do not rely exclusively on the Blind Spot Monitor. Always look over your shoulder and use your turn signal. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the monitor. See Owner's Manual for additional limitations and details. Do not rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the system. See Owner's Manual for additional limitations and details.
Three-zone auto climate control
No matter where you go, the temperature's perfect inside. The three-zone climate control available on Highlander features individual temperature controls for the driver and front passenger, along with a separate control panel in the back for the second- and third-row vents.
An Advanced Airbag System helps protect you and your family with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat-cushion airbag and Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) for all rows. All the airbag systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All airbags (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See owners manual for additional limitations and details.
Star Safety SystemTM
Highlander features the Star Safety SystemTM, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Star Safety System is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices.
Vehicle Stability Control is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of controll. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details.
2Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper vehicle maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
3Smart Stop Technology® operates only in the event of certain simultaneous brake and accelerator pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology® is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details.
