The latest version of Toyota's Highlander mid-size crossover SUV lineup is a vehicle that comes designed with a completely new powertrain, a more juiced-up engine as well as increased room for up to eight passengers.

This particular crossover SUV comes powered by a brand new 3.5 liter V6 direct injection engine that is available in three different powertrain options. The gas models will be available in both front-wheel and all-drive options, while the hybrid versions come in all-wheel drive configurations only.

These vehicles feature boosted safety features thanks to the inclusion of the high-tech Toyota Safety Sense technology, which includes lane alerts and collision warnings that work in conjunction with an automatic emergency brake.

As far as mid-sized crossover SUV offerings go, you will be hard-pressed to find a vehicle that offers a better balance between safety, spaciousness and sheer power than the 2016 Toyota Highlander.
