Toyota just unveiled the all-new 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander at the 2023 Chicago Auto Show, debuting a fresh three-row SUV that slots in above the standard Toyota Highlander and is set to rival the Chevy Traverse.
Outside, the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander takes styling cues inspired by the standard Highlander SUV. However, the Toyota Grand Highlander is considerably larger, with an extra 6.5 inches in overall length, an extra 2 inches in overall height, and and extra 2.3 inches in overall width. Wheel sizing ranges up to 20 inches in diameter. Trim levels include XLE, Limited, and Platinum.
Inside, you’ll find a standard 12.3-inch multimedia display. The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander also features wireless charging, two USB ports, and three cup holders in the center console. On the tech front, there’s an available Digital Key, as well as available Traffic Jam Assist, Head-Up Display, and Digital Rearview Mirror. Safety features includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and more. The Grand Highlander also offers voice command, and includes Bluetooth connectivity.
Naturally, one of the biggest draws of the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander is the added interior room, including an “adult-sized” third row. There’s also expanded cargo room, with enough space for seven carryon suitcases behind the third row, and a total of 98 cubic feet of space with the seats folded down.
Three powertrains are offered. At the top of the range is the Hybrid Max, rated at 362 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, enabling a run to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, with a 5,000-pound towing capacity. The rest of the lineup includes a turbocharged 2.4L gasoline engine, rated at 265 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, as well as a 2.5L hybrid, rated at 243 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, returning an estimated combined 34 mpg. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are offered. Under the skin, the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander rides on Toyota’s TNGA-K platform.
Production will take place at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing plant in Princeton, Indiana. Pricing and on-sale date will be announced this summer.
