2005 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander did not change much for 2005. Several features that were once options became standard, such as a roof rack and remote keyless entry.

The 2005 Toyota Highlander is available in two trims, the Standard and the Limited. Both are available with 4WD and 2WD with a four-cylinder or V6 engine. The 2.4-liter inline-4 comes standard, with 160 horsepower. The 3.3-liter, 230 horsepower V6 is optional on the base Highlander and standard on the Limited. Fuel economy is about 20/24 mpg. The 2005 Highlander is available as a five-passenger or seven-passenger vehicle.

Drivers love the 2005 Toyota Highlander for its dependability, smooth ride, and good safety ratings. However, many drivers complain that the car is a little boring in both looks and the way it handles. Owners of the 2005 Highlander also say that the third-row seat is only suited for very young children.
