Strap yourself in…check your mirrors…and contact the control tower because the aerodynamic and gutsy 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will have you feeling more like a pilot than a driver. Make that a Lear Jet pilot, once you’ve experienced the re-designed dashboard and console. Firstly, the futuristic three-spoke steering wheel gives precisely calibrated control to tackle the tightest or turns with pinpoint accuracy. As your hands grip the race-inspired wheel, your gaze will settle on a cluster of gauges, dials and displays that scream, “Holy cockpit!” You’ve never seen an integrated touchscreen display with more panache. The Highlander Limited and the Highlander XLE come with an even more engaging oversized 8-inch screen with enhanced graphics, but PLEASE keep your eyes on the road when you drive. Here’s the best part, because it’s always the small “nice touches” that say the most about intelligent design: Your 2016 Highlander has a unique built-in shelf to hold charging cables and accessories, and tucked inside are the USB and power ports. Talk about high-tech convenience! At this point, you should be curious enough to want to sit in this SUV cockpit for a test flight, and we’re waiting for you. Here at Vann York Toyota in High Point, NC, we have a dealership that is equally space-age, the ideal place to try out the new, improved Toyota Highlander Hybrid. We’re easy to find at 500 Eastchester Drive in High Point, NC, and easy to get to from Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Kernersville, Jamestown, Thomasville, Lexington, Asheboro, and Burlington, NC.
You wouldn’t imagine that a stylish and spacious family-sized SUV could give you the feeling of soaring like a bird, but the fearless 2016 Highlander Hybrid achieves this by using dual electric motors and a 3.5 L V-6 engine cranking out 280 hp. The result is exhilarating – a dynamic-looking hybrid SUV that accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and handles like a daydream. In case you were wondering, the two electric motors are mounted over the front and rear axles, and the exceptional performance is bolstered by a continuously variable transmission that efficiently maximizes output. The hybrid electrical source is a dependable 45-kW nickel-metal hydride battery pack that’s on the cusp of hybrid technology. You’ll be amazed at how seamlessly the gas-electric hybrid system switches the gasoline engine on and off without batting an eyelash. It’s good to know the Highlander Hybrid is just as quick and peppy as its older brother, the non-hybrid Toyota Highlander, so no one has to sacrifice handling and performance for environmental benefits.
Room, room, and more room – that’s what you get with the stately yet passenger-friendly 2016 Highlander Hybrid. You’ll have plenty of room for eight passengers to comfortably rest in the lap of luxury, and even more room for your stuff. Yes, the spacious interior was engineered with a “waste not, want not” attitude, where Highlander Hybrid’s re-designed rear suspension creates more cargo space. Whether you have a huge load of stuff, a lot of passengers, or a mixture of both, this hybrid SUV adapts instantly with 60/40 split third-row and that be configured for each situation or folded flat. To revert back to out our cockpit analogy, the one thing about air travel that annoys people most is the lack of space for the items you need to have close to you en route, your carry-on bags. Toyota has solved that problem with a handy console compartment that can store a small gym bag or giant purse without cramming and stuffing. Another burden lifted when you take a trip in this sleek SUV hybrid is never hearing the dreaded phrase, “Are we there yet?” coming from the back seat. That’s because the available Blu-ray Disc™ rear-seat entertainment system with 9-in. display screen, RCA jacks, remote, and two wireless headphones will keep the little ones entertained forever. Here are some additional niceties you can get inside the Highlander Hybrid:
