2006 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander was mostly unchanged for 2006.  It came in three trims: the Standard, the Sport, and the Limited. The base and the Limited were available with 4WD and 2WD, and the Sport came standard with 4WD. The 2.4-liter inline-4 came standard, with 160 horsepower. The 3.3-liter, 230-horsepower V6 was optional on the base Highlander and standard on the Limited and the Sport. Fuel economy was about 20/24 mpg. The 2006 Highlander was available as a five-passenger or seven-passenger vehicle.

Drivers like the 2006 Highlander for its typical Toyota reliability, smooth ride, and excellent safety ratings. Many say the styling is a little too conservative and while pleasant to drive, it isn't much fun. The optional third-row seat is also too small to be comfortable for most passengers.
