REDESIGNED TOYOTA HIGHLANDER TO DEBUT TOMORROW AT STATE FAIR OF TEXAS

By Andrew Ganz

An all-new Toyota Highlander crossover is set to debut tomorrow at the State Fair of Texas auto show, marking the second consecutive year that Toyota has used the event to launch a new vehicle.

The 2011 Highlander will again be available with a pair of gasoline-only engines and a hybrid powertrain. Toyota says it plans more differentiation between the standard Highlander and the Highlander Hybrid for 2011; the Hybrid receives an updated powertrain expected to be more efficient than the current model, which averages 27 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Look for the Highlander to continue as a five or seven-seat crossover with front or available all-wheel-drive. It's likely that the Highlander will grow a little to better compete against offerings like General Motors' Lambda-platform vehicles (Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain) and the upcoming Ford Explorer.

The reveal further highlights the increasing importance of the State Fair of Texas auto show; last year, Toyota used the event as the world premier of its redesigned Toyota 4Runner.

Check back here tomorrow afternoon for Leftlane's exclusive live coverage of the State Fair of Texas auto show.
