Japan Automobile company Toyota is introducing the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition. The Bronze Edition treatment spruces up the somewhat dowdy family SUV by way of radiant bronze-colored wheels and a handful of interior enhancements.

The Bronze Edition will run exclusively on the gasoline-electric Highlander Hybrid and comes painted in one of two colors: Cement (a Bronze Edition exclusive) or Wind Chill Pearl. The Wind Chill Pearl paint is new for the fourth-generation Toyota Highlander.

Available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive forms, the Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition’s most distinct feature is arguably its bronze-colored 18-inch wheels. These rims certainly push the envelope—and may even push some buttons.

Meanwhile, the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition‘s interior welcomes the likes of illuminated bronze door sill plates, bronze stitching, mid-century inspired faux-leather seating upholstery with fabric inserts, and special floor and cargo mats, with each featuring an embroidered logo in bronze. Toyota adds other bronze-colored accents, including bronze stitching on the door panels and dashboard, throughout the Bronze Edition’s cabin. 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition

2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition builds on the Highlander Hybrid XLE trim. In addition to the XLE’s list of standard equipment, the Bronze Edition features a digital rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers, a 1500-watt power outlet, in-dash ambient lighting, and more.

Like other Highlander Hybrids, the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition relies on a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors (three for all-wheel-drive models).

The combination currently nets a peak of 243 hp. Although Toyota didn’t share power figures for the 2022 Highlander Hybrid, we wager the model will maintain the same output as today’s Highlander Hybrid.

Similarly, Toyota’s yet to announce a starting price for the Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition, however, the brand notes the model falls between the Highlander Hybrid XLE and Highlander Hybrid Limited, each of which currently starts at $42,710 and $46,665, respectively.

Look for the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition to go on sale later this year.

Infotainment and Connectivity

An 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen is standard for 2022, replacing the last-generation car’s smaller 7.0-inch display; the GR 86 also comes with a 7.0-inch digital gauge display that is reconfigurable with Normal, Sport, and Track modes.

Choose how Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition performs with five selectable driving modes, including Eco for maximum efficiency, Sport for improved acceleration, and Trail on AWD grades for added traction.

Let’s get to designing your next trip—up to a manufacturer-estimated 36 mpg combined 88 on this hybrid will efficiently get you there.

Bring along the comforts of home with all the tech and convenience Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition provides, like the 1500W power inverter 144 that lets you power up your essentials. From the rain-sensing wipers when you’re driving to the hands-free liftgate 142 when your hands are full, Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition is always ready to assist.
