2021 Toyota Highlander in Shreveport LA
Yokem Toyota is your local Toyota dealer serving Shreveport Bossier Texarkana Natchitoches, and we are delighted to announce the arrival of the 2021 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander is a mid-size three-row SUV that can seat eight or seven. It boasts a handsome design, plentiful standard features, a standard V6 engine and an optional Hybrid powertrain. The most notable update for the 2020 model year is the introduction of the XSE trim level, which slots in between the XLE and Platinum and brings the number of distinct trim options up to six. The XSE is sportier than the trims that come before it and features unique exterior style, a sport-tuned suspension and an interior ambient lighting system.
