2018 Toyota Highlander For Sale Near Meridian
Meridian Toyota Dealer
The 2018 Toyota Highlander is a three-row crossover that’s notable for its long list of standard equipment, quiet ride and comfortable cabin. The folks at Toyota dealer Meridian call the Highlander the Goldilocks of crossovers because it’s just right, not too big and not too small. It’s easy to maneuver, yet can still hold up to eight passengers. Choose the optional second-row captain’s chairs and there’s room for seven.
The 2018 Highlander is offered in six trim levels at dealers like the Toyota dealership serving Meridian, listed as LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited and Limited Platinum. The base LE trim is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 185 horses and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, teamed to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard. A 3.5-liter V6 that’s good for 295 hp and 263 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on the other models and available as an option on the LE. This engine is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and has available all-wheel drive.
