The Toyota name has been around for decades and one of their shining lines is the Toyota Highlander. Called the Toyota Kluger in Japan and Australia, the Highlander is a midsize SUV built on the same platform as the Toyota Camry. This SUV was first announced at the 2000 New York International Auto Show and arrived the same year in Japan and a year after in North America. The Toyota Highlander claims the title as the first car-based mid-size SUV or midsize crossovers. The first generation sported five and seven-seat configurations and came standard with front-wheel drive and offered all-wheel drive. The first engines were the 2001–2007 2.4 L 2AZ-FE I4,116 kW (155 hp) and the 2001–2003 3.0 L 1MZ-FE V6, 151 kW (203 hp) with the 3.0 engine propelling the Highlander 0–60 mph in approximately 8.8 seconds. The most recent sees an improvement of having specs such as 3.5 L 2GR-FKS V6 2.5 L A25A-FXS.
