2001 Toyota Highlander

Toyota introduced the Highlander in 2001. It was marketed to consumers who wanted a mid-sized SUV but who were probably not going to take it off-road. The Highlander is a car-based cross between a station wagon, a mini-van, and an SUV, designed more for shuttling the kids to soccer practice than traversing rough terrain. The interior offers a roomy feel, although it only seats five.

The 2001 Toyota Highlander came as a 2WD and a 4WD, each as a four-cylinder or a V6 engine. The four-cylinder engine has 2.4 liters and 155 horsepower. The V6 has 3.0 liters and 220 horsepower. Fuel economy is about 18/22 to 22/27, depending on the engine.

Drivers like the 2001 Toyota Highlander because it is easy to drive, has comfortable seats, and comes with Toyota dependability. Drivers complain that there aren't enough cubbies for storage and that the price is a little too high.
