The Toyota Highlander is a front-wheel drive, car-based SUV (also called a crossover or CUV) built on the Camry chassis. It was released for sale in 2000 as a new 2001 model year. The first generation was sold until 2007, when it was replaced by the second-generation Highlander.
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid model was released in 2006 and continues to be a popular seller for the brand.
Sales in the U.S. have been consistent if not somewhat stagnant since the Highlander was released. Based on total SUV sales, which took a nose dive when fuel prices increased, the Highlander holds its own.
