2002 Toyota Highlander

Introduced just the year before, the 2002 Toyota Highlander saw very few changes for the model year. In response to consumer complaints, Toyota included a center console in the front. Other additions included a rear seat arm rests and passenger air filtration.

The 2002 Toyota Highlander came as a 2WD and a 4WD Standard and Limited, 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 and drive train.

Drivers like the 2002 Toyota Highlander for its comfortable seats and easy drivability. Some owners find the control knobs on the dash to be cheap-looking, and many say the vehicle is overpriced
