2011 Toyota Highlander revealed in Moscow

The 2011 Toyota Highlander has been revealed at the Moscow Motor Show.

For the 2011 year, the Highlander gets a heavily facelifted front end, with a new hood, front fenders, fascia, grille and headlights, as well as a slightly tweaked rear, consisting of a new bumper cover and new taillights.

In Russia, the car will be powered by a 3.5L V6 developing 273 hp, which will be hooked up to a five-speed automatic gearbox.

Now you’re probably thinking “What about North America?”. Well, it’s uncertain if this facelift will even arrive here, although it is likely, especially considering that the car is made at just three factories worldwide – China, Japan, and Indian, so a Russia-specific model wouldn’t make sense. Autoblog believes that if/when the facelift arrives, it will continue carrying the current drivetrain options: a 3.5L V6 putting out 270 hp, a 2.4L inline-4 delivering 187 hp, or a hybrid.
