I was at the Motortrend website and found the follow under the heading of future vehicles:
2008 Toyota Highlander: Redesigned on the Avalon platform, growing larger in size to make room for the RAV4.
I'm curious DYS if you can direct me to the area where it states that the redesign will be based on the FT-SX? I'd love to read up about it because we have two Highlanders (2001 & 2002) and would love to trade up to the new redesign model.
Thanks for you help.

It's clear everywhere you look, the 2007 Highlander WILL change, full makeover. See link prev. posted and there are other references .. ie right here on Edmunds in the future vehicles section re: 2007 Highlander (have to look a little for it). It will not be your Dads Highlander (its about time!.. tired old design).

The references are everywhere re: a total makeover for the Highlander. Why the denial here???????

Yo Mevande, I NEVER said anything about the Highlander not being redesigned. I ask dys for reference to the claim the Highlander will be Toyota's "FT-SX", somehow you think that because I ask questions about the redesign this is some form of "denial". Man you're reading way to much into my request for more information.

As shared, the facts point to a re-design of the Highlander is overdue and the facts also point to the fall of this year. Toyota is trying to hold any data for it would stall (might) sales of existing Highlanders. The links shared on this site (overall sites here on Edmunds from people in the forum to Edmunds 'future' vehicles point to a new design that will be 'lower' (makes sense, styling and fuel economy). It will be fun to see what happens!

Hello, I just spoke w/ an old friend who turns out to be a Toyota zone manager (have not talked for years.. he moved ect). He shared Toyota is not done w/ the redesign and will bring it (complete new SUV, still named Highlander) out in the spring/early summer of 2007 as a 2008 model. Just and FYI.

I'm looking forward to the resign. I've owned several Toyotas and currently own a 2001 & 2002 Highlander (both are great vehicles) and the timing of the new Highlanders will work well with swapping out both H/L's for a couple of new ones.
