2014 Toyota Highlander: A Minivan for the Minivan-Averse
May 25, 2015
Our 2014 Toyota Highlander has come and gone. We parted ways with a handshake at CarMax and thanked it for the some of the adventure and family hauling it offered us during its stay. I'll personally remember the Highlander fondly for hauling a large load of hardwood flooring for my first home and for carrying me and a friend in total comfort to a mutual friend's wedding in Utah.
Although we averaged a little less fuel economy than the EPA said we should, it was hard to find much fault with the Highlander's hearty V6. And when it came time to say goodbye, we got spectacular resale: just 14 percent depreciation when we sold it to CarMax.
Overall we thought the Highlander delivered excellent minivan practicality in a vehicle that wasn't a minivan. You can read our full wrap-up and more memorable insights from our year with the Highlander here.
