  • The Toyota Highlander has a leather interior that can fit up to 8 people. This interior comes equipped with heated and ventilated front seats. However, the new Ford Explorer can only seat up to 7 people.
  • Loading cargo in the new Highlander is far easier than in the new Ford Explorer. This Toyota SUV offers an available hands-free power rear liftgate with height adjustment, whereas the Ford SUV's power liftgate does not include the height adjustment feature and is not hands-free.

  • The new Toyota Highlander is equipped with a 12.3-in Multimedia display where the driver can access a wide variety of innovative features like Amazon Alexa, Wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto plus Wi-Fi Connectivity.

The driver can also access a premium JBL Audio system inside the new Toyota Highlander.
  • It's easy to keep everyone's devices charged in the new Highlander as it comes standard with five USB ports and two 12V outlets. Additionally, the new Toyota Highlander features a Qi Wireless charging station for your smartphone.
