Proof a Tall Person Can Fit in 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander (with Video)

See how a 6’5” person fits in the back of 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander.

Toyota has been busy this past year with vehicle refreshes, redesigns, and new model reveals. I am especially looking forward to seeing the big reveal for 2024 Tacoma sometime in the near future.

The one model, though, that really has me intrigued is 2024 Grand Highlander. I was at the world premiere of Grand Highlander, and it was met with nearly all-positive reviews. Great looking exterior styling, modern interior cabin loaded with technology, and plenty of space.

Grand Highlander is approximately 6 ½ inches longer than current Highlander and offers versatility with passenger and cargo space, along with three different powertrain options.

Potential buyers can choose from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbo, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid, and the 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbo with electric motor assist (Hybrid Max).

Imagine being able to choose the Grand Highlander hybrid that gives you 34 miles per gallon combined. Or maybe a Hybrid Max that delivers 362 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. torque.

I cannot wait to actually get behind the wheel of 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander and see for myself just how it drives and rides.

2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Video

While at the Chicago Auto Show in February, I was able to film a video that captures the essence of what Toyota Grand Highlander is all about – more space.

Toyota Product Specialist John Stemberg was kind enough to demonstrate what type of room a taller person has to work with in the back of Grand Highlander. And why would John make the perfect volunteer?

Well, he happens to be 6’5” tall. Works for me.

In this video from my “ToyotaJeff Reviews” YouTube channel, John tested out the spacious third row. Shockingly he had sufficient head room to ride comfortably in the very back. Also, he told the story of how he sat in the third row while his 6’1” friend was in the middle row in front of him. Both people had plenty of room in their respective seats.

Can you envision your family in the new Grand Highlander?

For me, I cannot wait until prospective buyers get to see this one in person and try it for themselves. A lot of people will be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for reading everyone. See you next story when I discuss 2024 Tacoma and its six-speed manual announcement.
