2021 Toyota Highlander Gets A Surprising XSE Trim

Toyota has launched the new Highlander XSE trim. It is a sporty variant that was 1st seen in the Camry and has now found its way to the Highlander. The SUV will be the 1st of Toyota’s SUV lineup to have the sporty version. The Highlander XSE trim is very distinctive and it will blow you away.

Sporty Exterior

The XSE distinguishes itself from the rest of the Highlander lineup. With a restyled front end with a gaping lower intake, side intakes that appear to draw air into the wheel wells, darkened headlights with black accents, a restyled grille, and a lip that juts out from the lower front bumper. The wheel wells are filled by 20-inch machine-faced alloy wheels with painted black accents. At the rear, it features twin chrome exhaust tip and a bumper lip that plays off the one at the front. The exterior trim, mirrors, and roof rails are blacked out.

The improvements aren’t just skin deep as Highlander XSE features a sportier suspension with retuned shocks, springs and a rear stabilizer bar. The electric power steering system has also been recalibrated to deliver a more direct feel.

Designed for people who need SUV practicality but really miss driving sport sedans. The Highlander XSE combines bold exterior design with more agile driving reflexes.  The 2021 Highlander XSE is powered by the same 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated with 8-speed automatic transmission. It’s also available with either front-wheel drive or Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive.
