Toyota ‘Grand Highlander’ Trademark Might Mean Big Things … Literally – Motor Trend

The Grand Highlander will likely share its TNGA-K underpinnings with the run-of-the-mill Highlander, however, the upcoming model may sport an elongated wheelbase and/or a redesigned rear end that aims to add more cargo and third-row seating space (not unlike the Lexus RX L). Such a change should allow Toyota to move the Highlander’s third-row bench further back, which in turn ought to improve legroom.

Assuming the Grand Highlander comes to fruition, we anticipate the new model will wear a sticker price a few thousand dollars greater than that of the regular Highlander, which currently starts at $35,985. We reached out to Toyota about its Grand Highlander trademark, however, a company spokesperson informed us they were unable to “provide details on future products.”
