The Highlander has undergone a makeover for 2014. Both inside and out, Toyota’s designers had free rein to give the vehicle more punch. This overhaul has made the Highlander SUV longer and wider. It has a V6 engine paired with a new six-speed automatic transmission, but the hybrid version gets a V6 and a CVT. What’s more, the Highlander’s suspension has been recalibrated to make the ride more dynamic.
