Toyota’s 4-cylinder-equipped 2012 Highlander Base offers a competent if not inspiring choice in a midsize 7-passenger, 4-door crossover. Three rows of seating are complemented by 95.4 cubic feet of cargo area with the rear seats folded, but expect only about 10 cubic feet of storage behind the third row. Some of this midsize crossover ute’s more notable exterior features include 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler, while the cabin is graced by cloth upholstery, front bucket seats and reclining second-row seats, with fore and aft sliders and a roomy storage bin under the middle section. Of course, full power accessories are standard, as are cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering and front and rear air conditioning. A simulated alloy steering wheel bolsters décor in the roomy cabin, while tunes are handled by an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers.
The available Tech Package can be added to the Base Highlander and includes satellite radio, Bluetooth music streaming, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, rear-view camera and multi-information dashboard display. A towing prep package includes heavy-duty cooling and a beefed-up alternator, while further options include remote engine start, Bluetooth hands-free communications, rear-seat DVD entertainment and step running boards.
Powering the 2012 Highlander Base is a variable-valve-timed (VVT) 2.7-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine that combines with the standard 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission for 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Expect up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity from the properly equipped four-banger, and with this base crossover offering only front-wheel drive (FWD), mileage is estimated at 20 mpg city/25 highway.
Standard safety features aboard this basic crossover include Toyota’s touted Star Safety System, with 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control. Meantime, front side-mounted airbags, 3-row head airbags and a driver’s knee airbag are complemented by daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights and a post-collision safety system. Glass breakage sensors, finally, as well as a VIP security system are optional.

Take your basic front-wheel-drive (FWD) 2012 Toyota Highlander Base and add a potent V6 powerplant to behold the Highlander Base V6. Standard aboard this potent 7-passenger midsize crossover are 3 rows of seating and over 95 cubic feet of cargo room, along with 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. Inside, this mini-ute offers front bucket seats, reclining second-row seats with under-seat storage and full power accessories. Cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering are standard, of course, as is front and rear air conditioning. A simulated alloy steering wheel, meantime, is bolstered by cloth upholstery and simulated alloy cabin accents, while entertainment comes via an MP3-capable single-CD player and 6 speakers.
The most exotic option package open to the Highlander Base V6 is the Tech Package, with satellite radio, Bluetooth music streaming, dash-mounted multi-function display, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a rear-view camera. Remote start and a tow-prep package with beefed-up cooling and alternator capacity, as well as roof rails, step side rails and heated outside mirrors also can be delivered with this practical crossover.
A 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine graces the 2012 Highlander Base V6. Combined with the standard 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission, the V6 puts out 248 lb-ft of torque, good enough to tow up to 5,000 pounds with the proper equipment. With variable valve timing (VVT), mileage is estimated at 18 mpg city/24 highway.
Safety-wise, Toyota’s Star Safety System, boasting 4-wheel antilock brakes, as well as traction and stability control, inhabits the Highlander Base V6, while front side-mounted airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, three-row head airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection can all be found in the cabin. Daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights and a post-collision safety system round out this useful crossover’s more notable standard safety equipment, with glass breakage sensors and the VIP security system optional.

Stepping up to the midlevel trim of the 2012 Toyota Highlander lineup means encountering the well-equipped SE. Powered by a standard variable-valve-timed (VVT) 2.7-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, this midsize front-wheel-drive (FWD) 7-passenger crossover comes with a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission allowing 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque, good enough to tow 3,500 pounds with the proper equipment. Mileage, meantime, is estimated at 20 mpg city/25 highway.
The economical powerplant in this practical people-hauler is complemented by 3 rows of seating and over 95 cubic feet of cargo space. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Look for the midlevel SE to sport 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a power liftgate, power sunroof and a roof rack outside, with leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat inside. Further cabin accoutrements include reclining, one-touch-folding second-row seats with center under-seat stowage, as well as front and rear air conditioning, simulated alloy and leather steering wheel and simulated alloy cabin trim. Full power accessories, including heated outside mirrors, not to mention a rear-view camera, multi-function dash display, cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering also grace the Highlander SE, as does a single-CD player with 6 speakers, satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free communications and music streaming, and a USB port.
Options, meanwhile, include remote engine start and an I4-dedicated towing package with heavy-duty cooling and alternator.
Sporting Toyota’s Star Safety System, the 2012 Highlander SE carries 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control. Inside, front side-mounted airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, 3-row head airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection boost occupant safety, while daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights and a post-collision safety system do their part in providing a safe environment. Finally, glass breakage sensors and the VIP security system are optional.

For 2012, Toyota once more offers its peppy front-wheel-drive-only (FWD) Highlander SE V6 7-passenger crossover. Boasting V6 power, 3 rows of seating and over 95 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, this midsize sport ute wannabe also offers plenty of cabin room, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and a roof rack, all standard, as well as a power sunroof and power rear liftgate. Leather-trimmed upholstery graces the inside, as do heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, reclining second-row seating with center under-seat storage, full power accessories, including heated outside mirrors and front and rear air conditioning. Cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering also grace the interior, with a universal remote garage door opener and rear-view camera helping ease the way. Then there are the leather and simulated alloy steering wheel and the simulated alloy cabin accents that enfold folks as they enjoy tunes from the single-CD player and 6 speakers. Entertainment is further bolstered by satellite radio and a USB connection, while Bluetooth music streaming and hands-free communications round out the plethora of standard features aboard this midlevel trim.
For those inclined to spend a bit more, a voice-activated touchscreen DVD navigation suite with dashboard display and upgraded audio components is available to the 2012 Highlander SE V6. Additionally, BLU Logic audio-interfaced hands-free communications, remote engine start and a towing prep package with heavy-duty alternator and cooling capacities can also be delivered.
As the name implies, the Highlander SE V6 carries the potent 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. Combined with the standard 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission, the six-banger pounds down 248 lb-ft of torque, which translates into 5,000 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped. Finally, with the ubiquitous variable valve timing, mileage is estimated at 18 mpg city/24 highway.
No worries about safety equipment in Toyota’s best-selling midsize crossover. The automaker’s vaunted Star Safety System boasts 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control, all standard. Inside, look for front side-mounted airbags, 3-row head airbags, a driver’s knee airbag and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Finally, dusk-sensing headlights, daytime running lights, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm all come standard as well, with glass breakage sensors and a VIP security system both optional.

As the midlevel trim of Toyota’s 2012 7-passenger midsize crossover Highlander line, the SE AWD presents an equal measure of practicality and bling. Standard all-wheel drive (AWD), 3 rows of seating, over 95 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded and a peppy V6 powerplant weigh in on the utilitarian side, while 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and a roof rack, as well as a power rear liftgate and power sunroof, are a sampling of the amenities aboard. Leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats with a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and reclining second-row seats with center under-seat storage are among further amenities endowing this crafty crossover, as are full power accessories, including heated outside mirrors. Cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering also come standard, along with front and rear air conditioning, a universal remote garage door opener and a rear-view camera that comes with a multi-function dashboard display. All this is complemented by simulated alloy cabin trim, as well as a leather and simulated alloy steering wheel. Finally, techno-goodies include an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers, satellite radio, Bluetooth music streaming and hands-free communications, and a USB port.
A voice-activated touchscreen DVD navigation system with dashboard display and upgraded stereo is optional with the 2012 Highlander SE AWD, as are remote engine start and BLU Logic audio-interfaced communications. Finally, there’s an available V6-specific towing package with heavy-duty cooling and a beefed-up alternator.
Standard power aboard the Highlander SE AWD is a 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine that mates with a slick 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission for 248 lb-ft of torque. With the proper equipment, Toyota’s practical crossover can tow up to 5,000 pounds of trailer, while mileage is estimated at 17 mpg city/22 highway. Finally, the full-time AWD system is managed by a center limited-slip differential, while the 5-speed automatic flaunts standard descent control.
Of course, Toyota’s Star Safety System comes with this heady Highlander and includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) along with traction and stability control. Inside, look for standard front side-mounted airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, three-row head airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm finish up the list of more notable standard safety features, while glass breakage sensors and a VIP security system are options.

As is fitting for its flagship trim, Toyota’s 2012 Highlander Limited 7-passenger midsize crossover flaunts a cornucopia of baubles and practicality, while flexing plenty of brawn. Starting with 3 rows of seating, including reclining second-row seats with center under-seat storage and easy one-step folding, this cool crossover also boasts 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, roof rack, upgraded exterior trim accents, a power liftgate and power sunroof. Over 95 cubic feet of cargo area are accessible with the rear seats folded, while a peppy 3.5-liter V6 powerplant and 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission pour 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque into this front-wheel-drive mini-ute.
An available towing prep package, with heavy-duty engine cooling and a bulked-up alternator, allows the six-banger to tote up to 5,000 pounds of trailer, while estimated mileage with standard variable valve timing (VVT) is pegged at 18 mpg city/24 highway.
Standard cabin adornments include heated power-adjustable front seats, premium leather upholstery and full power accessories, including heated outside mirrors. Tri-zone climate control and push-button start, of course, come standard on the top-shelf Highlander Limited, as do the upgraded simulated alloy and leather steering wheel and simulated wood cabin accents, not to mention telescoping tilt-wheel steering. Techno-gizmos delivered with the Limited trim include cruise control, a universal remote garage door opener and a rear-view camera, while entertainment is presented via a single-CD player with 6 speakers, satellite radio and a USB port. Finally, standard Bluetooth technology provides music streaming and, with the available BLU Logic system, audio-interfaced hands-free communications.
Rear-seat DVD entertainment, remote engine start and voice-activated touchscreen navigation are all available to the 2012 Highlander Limited, as is a towing prep package with a heavy-duty alternator and cooling, as well as a JBL premium audio system with a 6-CD changer and 9 speakers.
Safety-wise, this top-shelf crossover boasts Toyota’s Star Safety System with 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control. Front side-mounted airbags also protect occupants, along with 3-row head airbags, a driver’s knee airbag and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Meanwhile, front fog/driving lights, daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm finish up the more notable standard safety features aboard. Safety options, finally, include glass breakage sensors and the VIP security system.

This 7-passenger almost-ute sports 3 rows of seating, 95.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, V6 power and all-wheel-drive (AWD) traction for those wintry commutes. And, as the chieftain of the Highlander clan, this practical and potent people-hauler comes loaded with 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and roof rack, a power sunroof, heated power-adjustable mirrors, added chrome exterior trim accents and a rear power liftgate.
Premium leather upholstery, as well as leather and simulated alloy cabin accents and steering wheel adorn the inside of this kingly crossover, complementing simulated wood interior trim, heated power-adjustable front seats and reclining second-row seats with center under-seat storage and a one-step folding feature. Tri-zone climate control is, of course, standard, as are cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, a universal remote garage door opener and rear-view camera. A single-CD player with 6 speakers, satellite radio and a USB connection, all bolstered by Bluetooth music streaming and hands-fee communications, provide road-worthy entertainment and information.
Options, meanwhile, run to the exotic and the utilitarian, with voice-activated touchscreen navigation, towing prep equipment, remote engine start, BLU Logic audio-interfaced hands-free calling and rear-seat DVD entertainment all available.
The standard 270-hp, 3.5-liter variable-valve-timed V6 engine aboard the 2012 Highlander Limited AWD mates with a capable 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission with standard descent control for 248 lb-ft of torque leading to 5,000 pounds of properly equipped trailer-towing capacity. Mileage estimates for the Highlander Limited AWD run 17 mpg city/22 highway, while the full-time AWD system is managed by a mechanical center-mounted limited-slip differential.
Finally, standard 4-wheel antilock brakes, as well as traction and stability control are under the auspices of Toyota’s touted Star Safety System, further bolstered by front side-mounted airbags, 3-row head airbags, a driver’s knee airbag and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, dusk-sensing headlights, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm all come standard, as well. Finally, glass breakage sensors and Toyota’s VIP security system are optional aboard this well-wrought craossover.
