New Toyota Highlander

New Ford Explorer

Cabin Space

  • One of the advantages of choosing the new Toyota Highlander is that it can fit up to 8 people. On the other hand, the new Ford Explorer can only seat up to 7 people.
  • Loading cargo in the new Highlander is far easier than it is in the new Ford Explorer. This Toyota SUV offers an available power liftgate with height adjustment, whereas the Ford SUV's power liftgate does not include the height adjustment feature.

Tech Features

  • The new Toyota Highlander comes fully stocked with innovative tech features, like Amazon Alexa. The new Ford Explorer does not offer Amazon Alexa integration at all.
  • It's easy to keep everyone's devices charged in the new Highlander as it comes standard with five USB ports. The new Ford Explorer comes with just two standard USB ports, meaning fewer charging options while on the go.


  • While the new Ford Explorer offers several more powertrain options than the new Toyota Highlander, it does not get quite as high of fuel efficiency. The Highlander gets 21 mpg around town and 29 mpg on the highway.
  • Ford designed the Explorer to be more athletic, while the Highlander prioritizes comfort. When it comes to long road trips, the useful suspension and quiet cabin of the new Toyota Highlander will keep everyone content.
