  3. Toyota ‘Grand Highlander’ Trademark Might Mean Big Things … Literally

The Toyota Highlander SUV might just gain a larger, long-wheelbase stablemate.

According to Merriam-Webster, the word “grand” is defined as “having more importance than others” or as “large and striking in size.” Toyota’s trademark filing for “Grand Highlander” signals the possible arrival of a new Toyota Highlander variant that fits both definitions.

The Grand Highlander will likely share its TNGA-K underpinnings with the run-of-the-mill Highlander, however, the upcoming model may sport an elongated wheelbase and/or a redesigned rear end that aims to add more cargo and third-row seating space (not unlike the Lexus RX L). Such a change should allow Toyota to move the Highlander’s third-row bench further back, which in turn ought to improve legroom.

Assuming the Grand Highlander comes to fruition, we anticipate the new model will wear a sticker price a few thousand dollars greater than that of the regular Highlander, which currently starts at $35,985. We reached out to Toyota about its Grand Highlander trademark, however, a company spokesperson informed us they were unable to “provide details on future products.”
