2019 Toyota Highlander SE Gets Nightshade Special Edition

Early this year, Toyota announced that its 2019 Toyota Highlander SE — the sportiest trim in the Highlander range — would get a new special edition. This model is called the Nightshade special edition, and it injects a new pop of fun into the Highlander lineup. According to Toyota, the Nightshade special edition will be offered in three colors: Blizzard Pearl, Midnight Black Metallic, and Salsa Red Pearl.

What special design features does the special edition model include? The 2019 Toyota Highlander SE with the Nightshade package will ride on 19-inch black alloy wheels. The black accents continue with black outer mirrors, a black trunk garnish, black window trims, a black Highlander badge, black door handles, a black rear spoiler, a black SE badge, a black all-wheel drive badge, and a black rear taillight.

“The Highlander is the perfect choice for family adventures, but this winter, we’re giving Canadians a new look,” said Cyril Dimitris, vice president of Toyota Canada. “Dressed to impress, the Nightshade special edition is the best complement for families looking to start the year with a unique, fresh and sleek style that comes packed with Toyota’s performance, technology, safety, and comfort.”

The 2019 Highlander, which can seat up to seven or eight passengers, is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Highlander, including the SE model, prioritizes safety with Toyota Safety Sense.

2020 Toyota Supra Goes On Sale This Summer

After a 21-year hiatus, the Supra is returning to North America. Though Toyota teased this last year in England at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the automaker officially confirmed the 2020 Toyota Supra at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, last month.

Toyota promises the new Supra will nod to the 1967 2000 GT and the Supra that lived from 1993 to 2002, both in design and mechanics. But the 2020 Supra will also be a model all of its own. The new Supra will take its power from a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbo six-cylinder, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. This engine will throw down 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque and enable the Toyota Supra to rocket from 0 to 96 kilometers an hour in just 4.1 seconds.

But the Toyota Supra has always been about design as much as it’s been about performance. Toyota promises eye-catching colours like red, yellow, and blue hues, though you’ll also be able to get the Supra in traditional colors like white and silver.

The interior of the Supra is wholly race-inspired, including sports seats with integrated head restraints.

The 2020 Toyota Supra will go on sale here at High River Toyota this summer.
