Adventurous families love the Toyota Highlander because it doesn't back down from tough terrains, and the 2020 Highlander is even more capable! It has a new all-wheel drive system that includes Dynamic Torque Vectoring, which improves handling around turns without impacting traction, and there's also a tweaked Multi-Terrain Select system. The 2020 Toyota Highlander still offers a V6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic for easy acceleration and great efficiency for a three-row SUV, but there's also the Toyota Highlander Hybrid in Modesto if you want a family-friendly hybrid SUV that is still capable in all situations and weather!


Passenger safety is also high up on the list of those buying mid-size SUVs, which makes sense as families are the most common buyers of the class. The 2020 Toyota Highlander has many different ways of showing its impressive safety, and the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 Package is one of them.

The redesign of the 2020 Toyota Highlander starts with the new platform it rides on. The Toyota New Global Architecture comes to the mid-size SUV to make riding in it more comfortable, quieter, and easier to handle, which makes the three-row SUV an impressive drive. The redesign also makes the most of its cabin space so that there's more room for passengers (with seating for up to eight) or cargo if you want to fold the rear rows of seats down. And, to top it all off, the Toyota Highlander has more high-quality materials to choose from, like embossed leather in a stunning Glazed Caramel color!

 Safety Features

There's a reason why the Toyota Highlander routinely tops the charts in the field of safety. For starters, it's a Toyota SUV that's geared specifically for families, recreation enthusiasts, and adventurers. In that sense, the design team responsible for the Highlander sought to engineer a model fit to handle a full range of weather conditions and driving environments. As a Top Safety Pick for Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Highlander joins the ranks of other safety-driven three-row SUVs and fine-tuned models that operate with maximum safety in mind. Whether you're navigating the bustling highways that bestride the Modesto and Turlock area or you're simply out running errands around Manteca, the Highlander will deliver proper protection and peace of mind to its occupants through a range of standard and available safety tech.

Every Toyota Highlander includes Toyota Safety Sense 2.5, a healthy assortment of driver-assistive aids as standard. Standard features in this bundle include:

  • Automatic High Beams: These helpful headlamps activate automatically without manual adjustment required when low-light driving conditions are sensed.
  • Lane Departure Alert: We've all strayed from our lane a time or two, especially when making our way back from the office after a long day at work. This standard Lane Departure Alert system will notify you if you tend to leave your lane by sensing the painted lines on the road.
  • Lane Tracing Assist: This new feature builds upon the Lane Departure Alert system by sensing the lines on the road and actually adjusting your vehicle's steering to follow the lane and the vehicle ahead of you. It's yet another groundbreaking driving-assist feature that will no help mitigate the stresses of your Tracy commuting and travels.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection Control: Making your way around busy downtown areas can feel a bit overwhelming. Now, the Highlander helps reduce this strain through an integrated camera and radar system that greatly reduces the chance of a collision with a preceding vehicle, pedestrian, or bicyclist.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This advanced feature operates through a radar and camera system to adjust your speed to the vehicle ahead of you. Now you can simply engage this system, sit back, and cruise to your destination without constantly altering your speed and reducing fuel economy.
  • Road Sign Assist: Another new feature for the Highlander is the Road Sign Assist function, a forward-facing camera that actively reads and displays traffic laws like speed limits, stop signs, and other information that's then displayed conveniently on the MID.

Enhanced Versatility and Luxury

The Highlander is more luxurious and suited for family needs than ever before. This three-row Toyota SUV easily accommodates seven or eight, depending on whether you opt for the available second-row captain's chairs. Added flexibility is delivered through a folding second- and third-row while second-row seats can further move forward an additional 1.2 inches allowing for more legroom in the rear. In terms of cargo-carrying, the Highlander continues to excel with 16 cubic feet behind the third row and 48.4 cubic feet of space with those same seats folded flat and stored out of the way. For maximum item-moving potential, you can also choose to fold the second-row for up to 84.3 cubic feet of space. Whether you're moving furniture, around-the-house project materials, or groceries and gym equipment, you can rest assured that the Highlander is up to the task.

In a world driven by user-friendly tech and premium amenities the Highlander manages to stand out with its available 12.3-inch infotainment screen. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability allow you to tune into your go-to audio content while all of your climate control features are housed conveniently under the infotainment screen. All-season comfort for your Stockton traveling isn't compromised in this tech-friendly cabin either. Available amenities include a tri-zone automatic climate control system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, power moonroof, ambient interior lighting system, ventilated first-row, and more.

Other Features

Automotive technologies improve with each year, and the New Toyota Highlander is ready to show that. It has an infotainment system that makes using a wide range of devices, from Apple and Android phones to Amazon Alexa in your house, easier. There's even a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot you and your passengers can use! For comfort, the New Toyota Highlander provides standard three-zone climate control as well as available heated/ventilated seats. And, to help you get trips started, the Smart Key entry and power liftgate make getting passengers and any cargo in an easier task!

The All-New Toyota Highlander Bronze Edition

Get ready for a new addition to the new Toyota lineup. For 2022, Toyota is introducing a new Toyota Highlander Hybrid trim called the Bronze Edition. If you're looking for something different from the normal choices, check out what this trim has to offer. Before we highlight some of its characteristics, it's important to note that the Bronze Edition is only going to be available in the Tracy area with the Highlander's hybrid powertrain.

Unique Interior and Exterior Design

As Turlock shoppers might expect, there will be a number of bronze accents on this trim. First of all, the 18-inch wheels are bronze, and this makes the SUV really stand out. The exterior paint colors available are Cement or Wind Chill Pearl. Note that Cement is exclusive to the Bronze Edition. Inside the cabin, more bronze can be found on the door sill plates, door panels, dashboard, and cargo mats. The synthetic leather seats have fabric inserts with bronze accents as well.

Additional Features

The Bronze Edition is a step up from the Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE trim. It has many of the same features as the XLE does, but it comes with a few extras to give Manteca drivers more of a treat. Those enhancements include:

  • Rain-sensing wipers that can turn on and off by themselves
  • 1500-watt power outlet can be convenient when you're on the road and trying to get things done
  • Ambient lighting in the dashboard that adds some sophistication to the cabin
  • A digital rearview mirror

The digital rearview mirror can show you a live video feed provided by the camera mounted at the back of the SUV. This eliminates the problem of not being able to see behind you when you're driving around the Stockton or Modesto areas with a cabin full of tall passengers or bulky items blocking your view.
