Toyota today announced it will unveil the refreshed 2017 Highlander at the 2016 New York Auto Show, promising some exciting mid-generation changes to the mid-size SUV, including improved performance, more efficient and refreshed exterior designing.

Coming in its third year of the 3rd generation, the 2017 Highlander will have a new V6 3.5-L Direct Injection engine.

Besides the enhanced performance, the 2017 Highlander features some changes to the exterior styling, starting with a new upper and lower grille design at the front, and redesigned taillights at the rear for all grades.  The Limited and Platinum grades will have a chrome trim garnish added on the rear bumper.

For those who prefer sportiness, the 2017 Highlander lineup will welcome a new SE model, which will feature a dark painted front grille and ride on unique 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels with tuned suspension.  The interior of the SE model will also set it apart from the rest of Highlander grades with unique black leather seats with silver stitching, black front tray, and matching dash and door inserts.
