Most new car models hit the market by late summer or early fall of the preceding year. So a typical 2014 model would have been available by last September, if not earlier. But the 2014 Highlander was an exception.
As early adopters are likely aware, the 2014 Highlander didn’t start appearing in showrooms until January of 2014. And yes, supplies have remained rather tight ever since.
Despite this, as we head into summer, you may be wondering when the 2015 Highlander will make an appearance. Well, I (sort of) have the answer you are searching for…
According to Toyota, fleet ordering of the 2015 Highlander started on May 1st, 2014 and pricing information is expected to be available on August 7, 2014. The same dates apply to the hybrid Highlander.
Beyond the above, the ARI Fleet website shows that production of the 2014 model year will end in June 2014 and production of the 2015 model year will commence in July 2014.
Of course, nothing is certain until it happens. But it looks like the 2015 Highlander is coming (relatively) soon…
P.S. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you should also keep in mind that the Honda Pilot is due for a re-design in 2015.
