Exploring Central PA in Luxury with the 2014 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum

Friday, June 6, 2014

I was provided a week long loan for this vehicle in exchange for my honest opinion.  Read my Disclosure Policy.

At first glance, the 2014 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum SUV may look like your everyday SUV but it's not.  Not only can you enjoy the luxurious ride but you can also explore thanks to it's rugged edge. I decided to check out a few spots with the Highlander.

Thanks to the reliable GPS system I was able to find exactly where I needed to go and the first stop was next to the Harrisburg International Airport runway in Middletown, PA.  It was a Friday afternoon so traffic was pretty heavy.
Luckily, the safety features like the Blind Spot Monitor with Cross Traffic Alert helped me on the highway when I had to maneuver my way through traffic. 

It was a comfortable ride thanks to the heated/cooled seats, the amazingly enjoyable climate control and the comfortable seating. There was so much space in the Highlander so I had no problem bringing along snacks, my camera tripod, and some other goodies.
The fact that there is seating for 7 and a 2nd row that folds down is great for anyone who likes to travel a lot or who has big dogs and brings them along. With a 6 speed automatic transmission and a V6 Engine, this SUV has a 5,000 lb towing capacity.   Despite the sleek and stylish exterior, this SUV has SO much room inside.
Here I am driving around waiting for the planes to take off.
And here I am enjoying the HUGE panoramic sunroof. 

Oh look...finally a plane!

The next day, we took the 2014 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum up towards Centralia, PA.  If you don't know what Centralia is, google it, but basically it's a tiny town that almost no one lives in because there's an underground mine fire going on. 

We hoped to see steam rising from the ground but the temps were too hot out.  We did get to drive around on some of the dirt roads and I felt very safe inside this vehicle.  It was so easy to get around the iffy spots and even follow some abandoned roadways and trails.

Overall, this SUV is fantastic for the everyday explorers out there!!
