2025 Toyota Highlander

Most likely, the Highlander will receive new headlights, a thin upper grille, and a lower air intake. In the profile, you should not expect big changes. If the restyling is so large-scale, then most likely elements from the older Grand Highlander model will appear in the cabin.

But on the technical side, it is unlikely that there will be big changes, because last year, the 3.5-liter V6 already left the line, instead of which a four-cylinder turbo engine with a volume of 2.4 is installed.

The next 2025 Toyota Highlander will have a refresh update being one of the automaker’s larger SUVs, it makes perfect sense that Toyota would want to give the vehicle a modern look and feel.

For more updates, you can visit the Toyota official website.

2025 Toyota Highlander Exterior

We expect that the Grand Highlander has a unique and attractive external appearance. Due to the trapezoidal hammerhead front grille and optional 20″ wheels, it draws influence from the Highlander from the front, but in a different way.

With a well-defined rear bumper, the refined design continues to the back. The Hybrid MAX drive version takes one step further with clearly visible multiple exhausts.

The side surface expresses a straightforward yet dynamic-looking design by flowing smoothly from the doors through the fenders to the front and rear wheels. Exclusive bumpers and two-tone wheels with black accents are available for Hybrid MAX models to highlight a premium appearance. With a low bonnet line and big glass side windows, the vehicle prioritizes outward vision, enabling safe city driving.

The thoughtful and roomy design is maintained. The optional wood-effect upholstery flows over the plush, cushioned instrument panel, which extends into the tray-shaped door trim and blends in well with it. 

The center console includes distinct side armrests for the driver and passenger that may be utilized regardless of whether the lid is closed, and the form of the upper portion of the instrument panel extends into the door trim to emphasize the breadth of the cabin. It is both open and closed. High-quality embroidery exudes a contemporary, sophisticated elegance.

Grand Highlander is equipped for the travels ahead, whether the driver is seated at the wheel or the third-row passengers are. With a wider track and longer wheelbase than the existing Highlander, the updated TNGA-K platform offers a secure ride and a spacious cabin. 

With room for seven carry-on baggage behind the third row, it has a roomy, adult-sized third row, clever storage spaces throughout the cabin, and a lot of cargo space. Additionally, it provides a total of 97.5 cubic feet of room when the second and third rows of seats are folded.

We hope that Toyota’s newest and best technology such as Traffic Jam Assist technology (on Platinum trim), will be included in the 2025 Grand Highlander. Traffic Jam Assist is a radar and camera-based technology under specific circumstances, acts on the steering wheel, accelerator, and brake at speeds between 0 and 25 mph to assist in reducing driver fatigue brought on by severe stop-and-go traffic on restricted access routes.

Traffic Jam Assist is subject to 5G network availability and other conditions, and it requires an active Drive Connect trial or subscription.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto TM systems can be integrated wirelessly thanks to Toyota’s Bluetooth connectivity. In addition, We expect that the 2025 Grand Highlander has Wi-Fi Connect, which makes it an AT&T hotspot and comes with a one-month trial subscription that provides 4G access for up to five devices.
