Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) members joined the team at Toyota Gulf States for an intimate preview and test drive of the 2024 Grand Highlander in Houston, Texas.
While there, TAWA members partook in a full product briefing of the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander with exclusive test drives of the all-new Prius, the Prius Prime, the all-electric bZ4X and the new Crown. These offers stand tall as representatives of Toyota's strategic and steady progress toward "beyond zero" carbon neutrality in manufacturing and production.
Members also toured the Houston-area facilities at Toyota North America and test drove each of the three powertrains of the all-new Grand Highlander. Designed to provide a well-balanced, efficient experience across all-three grades, the Grand Highlander proved it is a long haul, three-row SUV worth waiting for.
Available as a 2.L Turbo Gas engine, a 2.5L Hybrid and the performance-minded 2.4L 4-cylinder Hybrid Max, there is an option for every buyer seeking a vehicle that fits their budget and size-wise between the award-winning Sequoia and the beloved classic Highlander. In the first-ever Grand Highlander, drivers will have the benefit of three terrain-specific drive modes for more on and off-road capability as well as a generous suite of safety and support features. All combined, regardless of grade, the 2024 Grand Highlander is an impressive package suited to wherever the road takes you.
"We would like to thank Toyota for granting our members time and space to experience the first-ever Grand Highlander and the other forward-thinking vehicles from Toyota. They are important steps along the road to carbon neutrality and still meeting the needs of our readers." said Teia Collier, President, Texas Auto Writers Association.
