The all-new 2023 Toyota Grand Highlander is reportedly coming next year, and we can expect many improvements compared to the regular variant. As far as we know, the upcoming SUV will be a much larger variant of the popular 3-row Highlander model. Unfortunately, Toyota didn’t reveal officially any specs, photos, and prices.
According to some reports, the Grand Highlander will be introduced sometime in 2022. If this proves to be accurate, the new model will probably sit somewhere between the Highlander and Sequoia models. In general, we can expect the new Grand Highlander to compete with newer three-row competitors like the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

The new 2023 Toyota Grand Highlander will reportedly be a larger variant of the famous Highlander SUV. However, at this point, Toyota didn’t reveal any specs, photos, and prices. From what we heard, the new SUV will most likely to share many design cues with the regular model. If you didn’t know, the manufacturer redesigned this model last year, and it was grown a couple of inches in wheelbase and overall length.
Also, the new stretched-looking front fascia was made, housing LED headlights with an arguably tidy shape overall. The lower trims will roll on 18-inch alloy wheels, while 20-inch alloys are standard on the XSE, Limited, and Platinum.
On the inside, the new 2023 Toyota Grand Highlander SUV will provide a more roomy cabin than the existing Highlander. In general, we expect the forthcoming model to offer more room for occupants on the back because the current layout on the regular variant is a bit tight for folks in the third row. On the other hand, the manufacturer will probably keep the same infotainment system that is present on the standard model.
The current SUV comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, which is the biggest in the class. It also includes Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/Amazon Alexa compatibility, satellite radio, four USB ports, and keyless entry/ignition.

Alongside this engine, the manufacturer also offers a hybrid-assisted 2.5-liter four-cylinder with a combined total of 243 hp (181 kW).
Presumably, the upcoming Toyota Grand Highlander would have the same options. In addition, many believe that manufacturers will boost these engines, considering that Toyota Grand Highlander is much larger and heavier than the base edition.
