Model year updates can range from a few small tweaks to a total overhaul. So, as a vehicle shopper, it’s important to do your research about the differences between feature offerings and price so you can pick the model that suits your needs best. Today, we’re going to take a look at the differences between the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2018 Toyota Highlander for drivers interested in upgrading their family hauler.
The differences between the 2019 Highlander and 2018 Highlander are pretty small, which drivers will see reflected in the similar prices between model years. Other than a few small feature adjustments that we discuss in more detail below, all trim levels, fuel economy scores, and standard feature offerings should be the same between each 2018 and 2019 Highlander model.

Like the outgoing 2018 Toyota Highlander, the 2019 Highlander model will be available in five trim levels including LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, and Limited. While there are some changes in the feature availability between the two model year lineups, the changes are pretty slight, and many drivers are not likely to notice the difference.
The changes for 2019 include the addition of black side rocker panels on all models, a few additional black exterior accessories on SE trim models, and the addition of LED fog lights with chrome accents on higher-level trims.
While the changes between model years are slight, the price increase of just $100 reflects that. Thanks to previous updates to the lineup, the 2019 Toyota Highlander remains competitive in the three-row SUV segment and includes the popular Toyota Safety Sense bundle on all trims, and available power liftgate, and available rear-seat entertainment system, and more.
