What Colors are Available for the 2019 Toyota Highlander?

One of the main differences between the 2019 Mazda CX-9 and the 2019 Toyota Highlander is right in front of our eyes: the overall styling. While we will admit that the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is sleek, we are not really feeling the overall look. The front end seems really long and out of proportion with the rest of the vehicle (can you imagine what visibility would be like for a driver short in stature?), and we don't like how it is tipped downwards. 

The 2019 Toyota Highlander is perfectly proportionate and looks more muscular – which is very accurate as the conventional 3.5L V6 engine provides a 5,000-pound towing capacity. The sculpted lines are enhanced by nine color options, which include: 

  • Midnight Black Metallic 

  • Blizzard Pearl 

  • Celestial Silver Metallic 

  • Predawn Gray Mica 

  • Salsa Red Pearl 

  • Ooh La La Rouge Mica 

  • Toasted Walnut Pearl 

  • Alumina Jade Metallic 

  • Shoreline Blue Pearl
