Learn About New Toyota SUV ModelsĀ 

Trying to find the right Toyota SUV or crossover model? We've got you covered -- just read through our model overviews below to get an idea for which one is most appropriate for your driving needs near Bloomfield MI and Rochester MI.

Small Crossovers

These models are designed for drivers who value flexibility -- they're equally prepared for tight city driving, long highway cruising, and more adventurous conditions. Typically, these smaller crossovers are built on the same platforms as Toyota's sedan and hatchback models. However, their dimensions and features are more akin to SUVs. The result? Vehicles combine car-like comfort and efficiency with SUV practicality.

Toyota C-HR

The C-HR represents a new direction for Toyota. It's the auto maker's first foray into the compact crossover segment. It may be small, but it offers compelling features and convenience.

Performance: A 2.0-liter engine with 144 horsepower powers this small crossover, yielding an estimated 31 mpg highway. A continuously variable transmission is standard along with front-wheel drive.

Interior Design: Five passengers can fit inside the C-HR, though it's not as spacious as other Toyota crossovers. However, some available premium features can provide the extra comfort you may be looking for. If you need to stow gear or supplies in the back, you can fold the rear seats and use up to 36.4 cubic feet of space.

Technology: The C-HR gets a standard eight-inch touchscreen display with Entune 3.0. It's also compatible with Apple CarPlay. A standard multi-information display in the gauge cluster provides updates about the vehicle while you're behind the wheel. Push-button start is also available.

Safety: Ten standard airbags, standard Star Safety System, and a standard backup camera give the C-HR considerable tools to help keep passengers safe.

Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 has been one of Toyota's bestselling models since the late 1990's. Though its basic formula has remained the same, features and technology in the RAV4 have developed dramatically. It's a well-rounded crossover that appeals to the many lifestyles of drivers around Waterford and Detroit.

Performance: A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard across the board for the RAV4. While front-wheel drive is standard, two all-wheel drive systems are available for drivers who want performance for more diverse terrain conditions. A six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard.

Interior Design: The RAV4 also has space for five passengers, but it has greater passenger volume than the C-HR. You can spec your RAV4 cabin with a variety of features and packages, from simple cloth upholstery to a full-on premium treatment. However, it's the RAV4's convenience that really catches drivers' attention. It has up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity, after all.

Technology: A standard touchscreen center display gives you access to Entune Audio Plus, Toyota's infotainment interface. Through this system, you'll have control over audio, navigation, hands-free calling, and more.

Safety: Toyota Safety Sense P is standard for every RAV4. This collection of smart safety features includes Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and more.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

The RAV4 Hybrid comes with the same looks and practicality as the standard RAV4, but its hybrid powertrain offers some advantages. The combined efforts of a gas engine and an electric motor make a net 194 horsepower and allow the RAV4 Hybrid to achieve up to 34 mpg city.

Midsize and Family Crossovers

Midsize crossovers are similarly designed around car-based platforms and unibody construction, but they cater to drivers who simply need more space and power.

Toyota Venza

The latest addition to the new Toyota lineup, the Toyota Venza offers an all-new mid-sized experience. Designed to be an in-between model resting between the compact RAV4 and the larger Toyota Highlander, the 2021 Venza provides a "just right" experience perfect for all your Detroit driving needs.

Performance: The 2021 Toyota Venza offers one uniform engine option: a 2.5-liter inline-4 electric motor hybrid. This impressive hybrid powertrain has been expert-rated as being capable of a combined 219 horsepower. That's on par with many SUVs of this size. Its 40/37 miles per gallon fuel economy, on the other hand? That stands a cut above the competition.

Interior Design: The Toyota Venza offers a spacious interior with seating for up to five. This includes up to 39 inches of headroom, up to 40 inches of legroom, and 56 inches of shoulder room. You'll also enjoy up to 28.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. This expands to 55.1 cubic feet once the rear seats are folded down. That's enough to handle everything from grocery runs and sports gear to camping trips and more.

Technology: The 2021 Venza can offer a slew of new features aimed at media, convenience, and comfort. Its standard media suite includes an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, complete with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa. It can also come equipped with built-in navigation, heated/ventilated seating, and enhanced infotainment options.

Safety: Every new Toyota Venza come with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 safety suite. This safety package includes everything from lane-departure alerts, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control. The Venza can also come equipped with road sign assist, lane-tracing assistance, and more. The 2021 Venza has also earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick award. This award signifies the Venza as one of the best mid-sized models on the road today.

Toyota Highlander

If you need a vehicle that can accommodate a growing family or tow a boat or trailer, but don't want to sacrifice on ride quality and comfort, the Toyota Highlander is for you. Its larger dimensions and more powerful engine give it better capabilities than smaller models without wading into the bulky construction and diminished ride quality of body-on-frame models.

Performance: The Highlander offers two engine options. The standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder offers 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The available 3.5-liter V6 offers a substantial improvement to 295 horsepower and an estimated 27 mpg highway. Available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive improves performance in dodgy conditions. If you see a boat or camper in your future, you can equip your Highlander to handle up to 5,000 pounds of towing.

Interior Design: The Highlander has a distinct advantage over many of its competitors: space for up to eight passengers. That space also means you can have up to 83.7 cubic feet of cargo area.

Technology: You'll find some of Toyota's most popular tech features in the Highlander, including Entune Multimedia. An available bird's eye view camera lets you see what's around you, while available three-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone comfortable.

Safety: Toyota Safety Sense-P is also standard in the Highlander.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Like the RAV4, the Highlander has an available hybrid powertrain. This model makes a combined 306 horsepower and lets the Highlander reach up to 30 mpg city.

Full-Size SUVs

These models are built on more robust platforms and have stronger engine options. If you're looking for improved towing or off-road ability, these are the models to consider.

Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner has been a favorite among off-road enthusiasts since the 1980s. The newest model keeps the simplistic design approach that made it popular in the first place.

Performance: Every model comes with a 4.0-liter V6 with 270 horsepower, but off-road ability is the real draw in the 4Runner. Its body-on-frame construction gives it better durability and flexibility on the trails near Farmington, while four-wheel drive with active traction control gives the 4Runner the chops to handle all sorts of terrain and weather conditions.

Interior Design: The 4Runner's interior is fairly simple. Two rows of seating allows for five passengers. Fold down the rear seats and you've got 89.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

Technology: The 4Runner keeps things simple when it comes to technology, offering a standard backup camera, navigation, and an available JBL audio system.

Safety:The 4Runner comes with eight standard airbags and the Toyota Star Safety System.

Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia gives you three rows of seating, a standard V8 engine, and a sturdy truck-based design for towing and other applications.

Performance: Your Sequoia will come with a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 under the hood. If you want to head off road, you can opt for a multi-mode four-wheel drive system. It's also rated for up to 7,400 pounds of towing and has an available adaptive suspension setup.

Interior Design: You can spec your Sequoia to be a fully-loaded luxury SUV with leather seats, rear seat controls, and more. It can seat up to eight passengers and has up to 120.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Land Cruiser tops off the Toyota SUV lineup. It's similar in size to the Sequoia, but places greater emphasis on off-road performance.

The same 5.7-liter V8 is standard in the Land Cruiser, but it opts instead for an eight-speed automatic transmission over the Sequoia's six-speed automatic. Its Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, Torsen limited slip differential, and Multi-terrain select system all contribute to the Land Cruiser's legendary off-road ability.
