Redesigned for 2014, the Highlander is a quintessential family hauler

More room, more refinement and a bolder look lead the long list of changes for the 2014 Toyota Highlander. Long a segment benchmark highly regarded for its reliability and resale value, the third-generation Highlander now offers seating for eight and an even wider variety of family-friendly features. For buyers in search of a hassle-free three-row people mover in the form of a midsize SUV, the Highlander remains a must-see.

Driving It

The 2014 Toyota Highlander is available with a 4-cylinder engine or a hybrid powertrain, but most buyers go for the V6. From our full review: "The 3.5-liter V6 engine and its 270 horsepower smoothly spring into action when called upon and provide adequate power when getting up to highway speed."

Cool Features

There aren't many things the Highlander does poorly so that allows you to focus on some of its new, unique features like the in-dash shelf and Driver Easy Speak. The in-dash shelf comes exactly as advertised and can hold the usual smartphone, keys and wallet without issue. The shelf stretches from the driver's right knee all the way to the passenger's side door. Driver Easy Speak (DES) is another new and unique feature which uses the integrated microphone to amplify the driver's voice through the rear speakers. DES can be accessed on the multimedia screen and makes it easy to more effortlessly converse with the kids in back without having to take your eyes off the road.

Build and Price

The 2014 Toyota Highlander starts at just over $30,000 and can climb to just south of $50,000 for the top-tier Hybrid Limited trim. Build and price your own 2014 Toyota Highlander to unlock its Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more. We expect the third-generation model to continue the Highlander tradition of above-average resale values.

Other Midsize SUVs

The Highlander isn't the sportiest offering in the segment, but it checks off every other important box. So, is it the right choice for you? To be sure, check out all of your options in the midsize SUV segment for 2014.
