Is the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Different from the Toyota Highlander?

We have been getting lots of questions about the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander. Many drivers want to know if it’s simply a new Toyota Highlander or another version of it. We’re highlighting both SUVs at St. Cloud Toyota to illustrate their similarities and differences.


Size is arguably the biggest difference between both three-row SUVs. The Toyota Grand Highlander is six and half inches longer and over two inches wider than the Toyota Highlander. While both SUVs seat up to eight passengers in select models, that extra size does translate to extra passenger space inside the Toyota Grand Highlander. In fact, it has five and a half extra inches of legroom in the third row, ideal for your tallest passengers.

Cargo Space

Even when you need to utilize all three rows of seating, the Toyota Highlander can still hold up to 16 cubic feet of cargo. That increases to 20.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the Toyota Grand Highlander. That space amplifies when you fold the second and third rows flat. The Toyota Highlander can hold up to 84.3 cubic feet of cargo while the Toyota Grand Highlander holds a generous 97.5 cubic feet of cargo in all.


Both SUVs are equipped with the same engine, giving them both notable power. They both also have efficient hybrid options available. The Toyota Grand Highlander, however, delivers more power since it has two hybrid powertrains available. Its max hybrid powertrain delivers up to 362 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
