The 2019 Toyota Highlander is a three-row SUV with seating for up to eight. It’s available in six trim levels: LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited and Limited Platinum.

Additionally, buyers enjoy a 6.1-inch touchscreen, five USB ports (three in the front and two in the back), Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system.
Who Should Drive the Highlander?
The Highlander is undoubtedly a favourite among Edmonton buyers. Three-rows means seating for eight, but what we love even more is just how much space is available when you fold down those rows – 2370 litres!
That means school supplies; book bags, sporting equipment, musical instruments, camping gear, etc. can all find a home inside. We love the Highlander for growing families, road-trip enthusiasts, and buyers who prioritize space.

Who Should Drive the 4Runner?
The 4Runner was built to tackle the great outdoors. Rugged and ready for the off-road, buyers will love the four-wheel drive and towing capacity this seven-passenger SUV offers. Off-road enthusiasts and families who need a towing machine will love this ride. Headed out to the lake this weekend with a boat in tow? The 4Runner has got you.
2019 Toyota Sequoia
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia is a rare breed being one of the few traditional truck-based SUVs on the market. This large three-row SUV can tow more than 7,000 pounds. Seating is available for seven or eight and families love the creative storage spaces throughout the interior.
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia is home to a 5.7-liter V8 engine that puts out 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive is standard. Not to worry, four-wheel drive is optional. The Sequoia comes in four trims and a variety of package upgrades.
Standard features include 18-inch wheels, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, LED headlights, a sunroof, a power rear window, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Trust us when we say, that last one will make road trips far more enjoyable.
Inside, find a 40/20/40-split second-row bench seat, 60/40-split reclining and fold-flat third-row bench, and second- and third-row retractable sunshades. Finally, enjoy features like a rearview camera, USB port, 6.1-inch touchscreen, and an eight-speaker audio system with Bluetooth capability.
Who Should Drive the Sequoia?
One word: Versatility. The Sequoia is a workhorse designed to meet a variety of needs for all types of drivers. There is an abundance of cargo space and a healthy towing capacity. It is by definition a sport-utility-vehicle, able to access the off-beaten path on the weekend but transport the family or soccer team during the week. We love the Sequoia for buyers looking for a big tower, a reliable workhorse and no-frills approach to the open road.
