2004 Toyota Highlander Overview

The Toyota Highlander was redesigned for 2004. The most notable change was the addition of an optional third row seat, boosting the seating capacity from five to seven people. The engine got a power boost, and the suspension was retooled for a softer ride.

The 2004 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.

Drivers like the 2004 Toyota Highlander for its smooth ride, comfortable interior, and generous amount of cargo space. Many shorter drivers like that the Highlander is easy to get into and doesn’t feel overwhelmingly large to drive. Some drivers complain that the car is very noisy when the windows are down, and many find the styling to be quite bland. Owners also find the third seat to be too small for anyone but tiny children.
