2014-Toyota-HighlanderThe 2014 Toyota Highlander was the talk of the 2013 New York International Auto Show, and it was no wonder why. A sleek, sensual new design, the latest in Toyota innovation and technology, and the same rugged reliability that drivers have come to expect all make up the latest iteration of the SUV, making it one of the more anticipated vehicles of the 2014 model year. In expectation of immense success from the redesigned SUV, Toyota has brought some good news to the Hoosier state in the form of nearly 200 new jobs and a large investment of $30 million for Highlander production.

The Toyota plant residing in Princeton, Indiana, is expected to increase its output from its current 300,000 unit construction to 365,000 by the end of 2014 with this latest injection of funds, according to Automobile Magazine.  The additional jobs will raise the total number of employees to nearly 5,000, and in a time when people are often struggling to find and retain jobs, this comes as a pleasant surprise to many around the state.

All production of the 2014 Highlander will be incorporated into the Indiana facility, a change from the 2013 version that was developed both there and in Japan and shipped around the world. As a vehicle that will arrive on dealership floors in the first half of 2014, the new Highlander brings the same quality and value of the Toyota family into the future of design and capability. Superior off-road ability combines with supreme confidence and comfort to make for one off-road vehicle to conquer any challenge in its way.
