A 270-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine powers the 2008 Toyota Highlander base model. The V6 engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission, which comes standard.
Other standard features include antilock brakes, traction control, brake assist, electronic brakeforce distribution, electronic power steering, and a new feature called enhanced vehicle stability control. The Highlander is also the first Toyota vehicle with active head restraints and a new hood and fender designed to crumple on impact with a pedestrian.
The midsize SUV features a Center Stow seat, which can be hidden beneath the front console when not in use, used as a center console between the two middle seats, or unfolded so the vehicle can carry seven passengers. In addition, both the second and third rows can be folded down to create a flat cargo area.
Toyota notes that the Highlander will be loaded with standard features, while options will include leather trim, heated seats, a 9-speaker JBL sound system with a CD changer, and a tow package with 5,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity.

Equipped with a full-time four-wheel-drive system, the 2008 Toyota Highlander Base 4WD delivers improved traction and stability on all types of roads. The four-wheel-drive system joins a number of other standard safety and traction features, including antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, and a new feature called Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, which helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle under adverse conditions.
In addition, the Highlander is the first Toyota vehicle with active head restraints and a new hood and fender designed to crumple on impact with a pedestrian.
A 270-hp, 3.5-liter V6 powers the 2008 Toyota Highlander Base 4WD. The engine links to a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with sequential shift and a Snow Mode. The EPA rates gas mileage at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg at highway speeds.
The Highlander features an all-new design for 2008, with a sloped-back roof, prominent wheel wells, a high nose, a silver-painted grille, and multi-reflector halogen headlights. Foldable power exterior mirrors, a UV-reduction windshield, privacy glass on the rear windows, and 17-inch alloy wheels all come standard.
The midsize SUV features a Center Stow seat, which can be hidden beneath the front console when not in use, used as a center console between the two middle seats, or unfolded so the vehicle can carry seven passengers. In addition, both the second and third rows can be folded down to create a flat cargo area.
Other interior features include remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, cruise control, and a six-speaker AM/FM audio system with MP3 capability.
Options include a six-disc in-dash CD changer and a Cold Weather package with heated exterior mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer grid.

The 2008 Toyota Highlander Sport 4WD comes equipped with a full-time four-wheel-drive system, which delivers improved traction and stability on all types of roads. The four-wheel-drive system joins a number of other standard safety and traction features, including antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, and a new feature called Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, which helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle under adverse conditions.
In addition, the Highlander is the first Toyota vehicle with active head restraints and a new hood and fender designed to crumple on impact with a pedestrian.
A 270-hp, 3.5-liter V6 delivers plenty of power, although some reviewers note that a number of competitors' vehicles provide a sportier driving experience. The engine links to a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with sequential shift and a Snow Mode. The EPA rates gas mileage at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg at highway speeds, which can be considered good mileage for a midsize SUV.
The Highlander features an all-new design for 2008, with a sloped-back roof, prominent wheel wells, a silver-painted grille, multi-reflector halogen headlights, and a chrome exhaust tip. Integrated foglights, dark-silver-painted roof rails, a glass rear hatch, and 19-inch alloy wheels all come standard.
The midsize SUV features a roomy, functional cabin, with a Center Stow seat that can be hidden beneath the front console when not in use, used as a center console between the two middle seats, or unfolded so the vehicle can carry seven passengers. In addition, both the second and third rows can be folded down to create a flat cargo area.
Other interior features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 3.5-inch multifunction display with backup monitor, remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, and a six-speaker AM/FM audio system with an in-dash six-disc CD changer and MP3 capability.
Options include a voice-activated DVD navigation system, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, leather-trimmed seats, a power rear liftgate, and a power tilt/slide moonroof.

The best-equipped Toyota Highlander trim available for 2008, the Limited 4WD comes equipped with such standard features as full-time four-wheel-drive, which delivers improved traction and stability on all types of roads. The four-wheel-drive system joins a number of other standard safety and traction features, including antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, and a new feature called Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, which helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle under adverse conditions.
In addition, the Highlander is the first Toyota vehicle with active head restraints and a new hood and fender designed to crumple on impact with a pedestrian.
The Highlander Limited 4WD features an all-new design for 2008, with a sloped-back roof, prominent wheel wells, a silver-painted grille, and multi-reflector halogen headlights. Integrated foglights, silver-painted roof rails, a glass rear hatch, and 19-inch alloy wheels all come standard. A Cold Weather package also comes standard and adds heated outside mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer grid.
The midsize SUV features a roomy, functional cabin, with a Center Stow seat that can be hidden beneath the front console when not in use, used as a center console between the two middle seats, or unfolded so the vehicle can carry seven passengers. In addition, both the second and third rows can be folded down to create a flat cargo area.
Other interior features include leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone climate control, a 3.5-inch multifunction display with backup monitor, satin mahogany wood-grain-style interior trim, and a six-speaker AM/FM audio system with an in-dash six-disc CD changer and MP3 capability.
A 270-hp, 3.5-liter V6 powers the 2008 Toyota Highlander Limited 4WD. The engine links to a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with sequential shift and a Snow Mode. The EPA rates gas mileage at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg at highway speeds.
