The big three-row crossover segment has been around for more than a decade, but until recently it didn’t have many players. The Ford Taurus X (nee Freestyle) was the first, the Flex the second, but neither was a smashing success. Chevrolet’s Traverse, along with its corporate siblings, ruled this rugged minivan replacement class for almost 10 years until Hyundai and Kia brought the heat in a big way in 2018. Volkswagen is here now and Mazda launched a big triple for drivers earlier this year, but now it is Toyota’s turn. So, say hello to the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander.


It shares a name with the long-running Highlander but that’s about all. The Grand has almost nothing in common with its namesake. Even the styling of the Grand Highlander is more rugged 4Runner than it is its stylish shorter sibling.
