What We Know So Far




Overview

If you’re drawn to the Toyota Highlander SUV but feel that it isn’t quite big enough for your family, the upcoming 2024 Grand Highlander might be the answer you’re looking for. We’re not sure if it’ll actually be grander in terms of style, features, or luxury appointments but it is likely to be a stretched version of the current Highlander. That means the Grand Highlander will offer more space for people and cargo inside its elongated body—with most of the stretch going to a roomy third row. Toyota hasn’t said much about the Grand Highlander yet except that it will debut at the Chicago Auto Show in February of 2023, but we have an idea of what will power the new SUV thanks to the Hybrid Max badge visible in the teaser image. This suggests the same 340-horsepower, all-wheel-drive hybrid setup from the Crown sedan. When we know more about the 2024 Grand Highlander, we’ll update this story with details.

What’s New for 2024?

Although it uses the Highlander name, the Grand Highlander will be a new addition to the Toyota lineup when it goes on sale sometime in late 2023.

We should see some familiar trim names on the Grand Highlander, but we are guessing about the SUV’s prices. Once we have a better understanding of the Grand Highlander’s standard and optional features, we’ll update this story and recommend a trim level.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The regular Highlander’s turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder will likely be standard here as well, but we can see in the teaser image an emblem for Toyota’s Hybrid Max powertrain, which leads us to believe that the 340-hp hybrid setup from the Crown sedan will also be offered on the Grand Highlander as an option. We won’t know for sure until closer to the SUV’s launch date.
