What is the Difference Between the Toyota RAV4, Highlander, and 4Runner?

If you've been rocking a Toyota Corolla or Toyota Camry but find your life is starting to grow larger than you have room for, it's time to make the jump to an SUV. Drivers around Portsmouth NH just like you are doing the same thing every day, as more and more are trading in their sedans for a shot at the hottest segments on the road today.

The demand for the SUV has never been higher, and as a result, competition has never been greater. While many auto manufacturers are just beginning to throw their hats into the ring, Toyota is one of the few that's been in the game for years, and their lineup of SUVs is as reliable as any you'll find.

The RAV4, Highlander, and 4Runner are three of Toyota's best SUVs, and each of them has its unique strengths. The RAV4 is the smallest of the three, officially classified as a compact SUV and comes with a 2.5-liter engine that gets 203 horsepower. Its size makes it a very nimble option that handles very similarly to a sedan, but still provides up to 69.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

Both the Toyota Highlander and 4Runner are officially considered mid-size SUVs, and while they share a very similar size, there are some notable differences. At its base level, the Highlander comes with a 2.7-liter engine that gets 185 horsepower while the 4Runner gets 270 horsepower from its 4.0-liter V6. However, the Highlander has an optional engine upgrade that gets 295 horsepower, the most powerful of the three.

Suffice it to say; no matter which of the three SUVs you choose to call your next vehicle, rest assured that you will get everything you need to take your life to the next level.
