Toyota Highlander parts were some of the first of what we now call a crossover vehicle, a vehicle that combines all wheel drive and high ride height of a traditional sport utility vehicle with the independent suspension and fuel economy of a sedan. The first Highlander came out in 2001 and is on its third generation. The basic formula has remained the same though. The Highlander offers four cylinder, six cylinder and hybrid power. It is a front drive based chassis that is also available as a four wheel drive vehicle. The Highlander has been very popular with families in many parts of the world. No matter which Highlander model you own, it is a practical, reliable vehicle that can do virtually anything that you need it to do.
