Notable Differences Between the 2017 Highlander and 2017 4Runner
It doesn’t take an engineer to know that comparing these two SUVs is kind of like comparing apples to oranges. One was made to tap into your wild side, while the other was made give you a feature-rich ride that’s comfortable and safe. The 2017 Toyota 4Runner is ready for adventure thanks to its proven body-on-frame construction and oversized suspension that gives it off-roading capabilities, unlike most other SUVs. Standard Hill Start Assist Control helps keep the 4Runner from rolling backward when on sloped terrain, and two available 4-wheel drive systems allow the 4Runner to go anywhere and everywhere. On top of all this grit, the 4Runner also features a high-tech instrument panel, available premium seating, active headrests, and much more.
The 2017 Highlander may not be the most suitable for heavy terrain, but what it lacks in fortitude it makes up for in versatility. The new Highlander comes available with three gas engines plus an additional hybrid option, as well as two transmission choices and two drivetrain choices. Standard features include an integrated backup camera with projected path, a 4.2-inch color LCD Multi-Information Display, remote keyless entry system, and more. The Highlander also is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, which includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
