Say hello to the leaner, meaner Toyota Highlander

A heavy update for 2017 results in a tightly designed front end and a whole slew of safety features.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Welcome to the 2017 Toyota Highlander.

The Highlander got a pretty heavy refresh for 2017. The front end is just a bit sharper.

Redesigned LED taillights now grace this midsized, three-row crossover.

A 3.5-liter V6 engine is available, offering 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque.

If you're not into power, the standard engine is a 2.7-liter power plant with 185 horsepower. That seems small for such a large crossover.

Toyota added the SE trim for 2017 with some easy-to-miss sporty elements like 19-inch black finish wheels and dark painted front grille and roof rails.

You can also go green with a Highlander hybrid. The 3.5-liter V6 is paired with two electric motors for a total power output of 306 horsepower.

The Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) package is standard across all trim lines of the Highlander, offering lane-keeping assist to keep the car from drifting out of lane and dynamic radar cruise control.
