2006 toyota Highlander

2006 toyota Highlander: For 2006, the Highlander expands: the 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine is gone, and all designs use a 3.3-litre V6 that is boosted with 3 electrical motors in the Highlander Crossbreed. All designs are now all-wheel-drive; the front-wheel-drive variation offered in 2005 is terminated. Both models currently have five- or seven-passenger seating; furthermore, the traditional Highlander receives 16-inch alloy wheels with a full-size extra, wheel locks and fog lamps, while the Hybrid obtains 17-inch wheels, chrome accented front grille, brand-new front bumper, back LED taillights and also chrome permit plate trim.

With the Hybrid joining the Prius in the line-up, Toyota says it is now the very first automobile maker to offer a complete gasoline/electric crossbreed in both the intermediate SUV and mid-size passenger car sections. The Highlander Crossbreed is powered by a brand-new version of Toyota's Crossbreed Synergy Drive powertrain, specially-tweaked for a midsize SUV. It features an electronically-controlled constantly variable transmission (CVT) and also on-demand digital four-wheel-drive. The gas engine functions perfectly with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator that establishes a peak system output comparable to 268 hp, however with half the fuel intake of a conventionally-powered car.

The Highlander is a "full crossbreed", indicating that it could run in gasoline or electric settings, in addition to a mix of both. Under regular problems, the Hybrid runs in front-wheel-drive setting, and also automatically switches over to 4WD when extra traction is needed. The Harmony Drive powertrain powers the front wheels, while an electric motor drives the back ones.

Functions on the gasoline-only Highlander consist of CD/cassette player with six speakers, air conditioning, towel seats, 60/40 split back bench, power locks with keyless entry, power home windows, floor mats, cargo cover, cruise ship control, 16-inch alloy wheels, personal privacy glass, warmed mirrors, variable recurring wipers, as well as fog lamps. The seven-passenger version adds a third-row bench seat with fold-down seatback. Offered choices are a Natural leather Plan, as well as a Restricted Plan that adds a long listing of attributes, including natural leather inside, 17-inch wheels, side and also drape airbags as well as power sunroof.

The five-passenger Hybrid includes multi-information display, LED taillamps as well as 17-inch wheels.

The seven-passenger Hybrid comes just in Minimal trim, and also includes upgraded CD/cassette with 8 speakers as well as wheel-mounted controls, automatic climate control, supporting rear heating unit, heated leather seats, outside temperature scale, leather-wrapped wheel, integrated garage door opener, side as well as drape airbags, anti-theft system, power sunroof and light control system.

All versions offer a positive trip, yet the seven-passenger variation is that in name only; the 3rd row of seats is cramped and ideal mainly for smaller kids. Unless you're hauling seven travelers often, the five-passenger deals a lot more freight room without folding down another row of seats.

The Hybrid is present-day innovation, with a horsepower increase and also better gas economic climate compared to its gasoline-only double, yet a $6,350 premium in base type and also $6,415 in Limited trim will certainly take a while to repay at the gas pumps, despite rising fuel prices; purchase this to conserve the planet, not necessarily your pocketbook.
