Is the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition a better SUV to buy?

There is an ALL NEW special Highlander for 2022 from Toyota. The Bronze Edition is meant to really set this midsize SUV apart from the rest. On the outside you have two different colors to choose from, 18in bronze wheels, and the choice of FWD or NEW electric AWD. On the inside you will be greeted to special bronze appointments, finishes, and unique seat material. Under the hood is a 2.5L inline-4 paired with electric motors to produce 243HP \u0026 mated to a CVT transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Bronze Edition

  • Toyota sucks esthetic design wise. Historically they made reliable vehicles but these days any new car will last you 100k miles. If you're looking at 10 year old cars yes I’d recommend Toyota. I’d wait until buying any new car model until it’s been out for 3+ years even Toyota. Their cars are overpriced too.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and input on this one.

  • @9:05 This guy is a Genius, LOL make me spit out water.

  • Excelente video, pronto me la comprare....

  • كيف اترجم كلامه بالعربي

  • Nice video !! but not a big fans with this seat Toyota cheap built all about budget soda can body

  • Nope! Hard pass… Running to the competition🏃🏻‍♀️💨😅

  • The bronze and chrome mix is pretty lame. The chrome parts should have been bronze as well.

  • I love Toyota, however, that is a very ugly color. That Bronze edition is not very appealing.

  • Hey! You were in my town! Haha

  • Dominic the bronze edition is pure ugly. ..

  • a cvt transmission o no

  • This is boring to look at

  • Good morning yes the black would like better around the side

  • I have Telluride bias. Toyota skimped in alot of the visuals. Design choices seemed for another market. The seats made me think of a early 90s Honda.

  • Joe thx u for this Video u and lori doing it for us

  • Side view of this car is disappointing...kinda ugly

  • Not sure if I’m the only one thinking this but…. LOVED your Taco and Highlander video… can you give me a hint whether we will be seeing a review soon from that show on the Next Gen Tundra. I’m a current TRD sport Taco owner and have loved on it for 10 years!!! With 2 young boys I need something bigger. Please tell me you’ll get your hands on a 2022 Tundra soon! I’m chomping at the bit saving all my healthcare worker pennies scrounging them together to buy the Next Gen Tundra. Please give me good news Joe!

    • @Raiti's Rides thanks for the Update! That’s so depressing! Really hoping Daddy can get himself into a new Tundra to bring in the new year! Glad I joined your channel, you and Lori put out great content and you truly are a joy to watch. Toyota family here! The wife drives a pearl white 2018 Highlander SE with the black leather interior. Quite Sexy.

    • It is going to be a little long Andy! Toyota is not ready yet.

  • I hoped that the 2022 model will shift to a digital cluster gauge like Kia and Hyundai. Hopefully this will be in the limited and platinum trims.

  • Toyota deserves an award for the ugliest wheels ever designed.

  • Hey man, watched your videos on the Stinger before I purchased it. A lot of good info and it helped me decide to go for it. Also been binge watching all your car reviews since then lol. 💯

  • Yes, please continue to show us special edition vehicles. I like the seats on this Highlander. But I DO NOT LIKE that paint color. I am a big fan of base and clear coat paints that are metallic or pearlescent. Give me some thing more than black, gray, white, or silver. That cement color is boring! There is the whole rest of the color spectrum... let’s use it!! How about red, blue, violet, green, orange, yellow. There are so many different pigments available to use.

  • I put my little Debbie Swiss rolls down for this; I’m okay with it but painted to match the car color would be better. Also prop rods are so antiquated, hydraulic should be standard

  • Toyota Hybrids do not have a cvt. They have synergy hybrid drives, its not a cvt.

  • I'd consider the Hybrid Highlander. I'd make some changes as well; nothing major, but mistakes none the less. I'm looking forward to you showing part II. Well done.

  • Dear Toyota Please remove that ugly "Chrysler Wing" on hood!!!!

  • I am disappointed with this Bronze Edition, it is not as nice as I thought it would be. There was no wow factor.

  • The XSE is way better this is a joke!

  • color matching in the wheel wells just asks for rock chips. The flat black is a buffer for that.

  • Thanks for the great review as usual! I love your channel. You know, one thing I wish I did get with my 2021 Highlander hybrid Platinum AWD is getting more than 30mpg. I have to drive super conservative to get almost 30mpg. I also wish I could get more than 14 gallons of gas. But it’s a great car and is super quiet and comfortable

  • Hybrid cars are worst.

  • Bronze edition. Appropriate naming, placing behind the design of the Palisade and Telluride.

  • New subbie here! Like your reviews! 👌💯

  • Not liking the exterior styling at all. It looks like a fat pig from the front. Hate the grill. The black wheel fenders are also no go . Disappointed as I think the last model was better looking. I was looking at repkacing my 2012 highlander with the new model but I think I will buy a used last model. Was kind of hoping that it woukd be as striking as vha Camry we bought a year and a half ago.

  • Whoever designed this at Toyota needs to give their head a shake

  • I like Highlanders and am considering buying one, but this grey paint doesn't work for me and the bronze wheels are hideous. Give me the bullet proof V6 and a real transmission.

    • Thanks for letting me share this one with you!

  • What's the horse power

  • It’s nothing different Toyota Highlander XLE 2021

  • yes all one color

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • I noticed while you've been there, the audio is a bit lower hehe

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Needs more cowbell

  • It’s odd that they used the XLE wheel for this bronze addition. I get that it’s painted a different color, but it doesn’t differentiate the car enough from the standard XLE and they should’ve went with a larger size. I’ve always thought that the wheels look too small on the LE and XLE. I do like the Highlander styling in general, though.

  • Shouldn’t there be more bronze tho?…

  • U know Toyota has loyal customers when the new gen is uglier than the old one

  • OH BOI OH BOI HAAHHAAH LOVE UR REVIEWS ALWAYS MY BROTHER !!! LMAO 👍😊😊😊😊

  • Not painted because of rock chips. So it works on on suv

  • It's just a gimmic from Toyota with the Bronze edition. Instead of running towards, 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ away...So shameful design.

  • I almost went for a Highlander Hybrid. Liked everything about it but the driver seat was not comfortable for me. Toyota eliminated the seat bottom extension. If you have long legs there is not enough support for your thighs. It also seems like you cannot tilt the bottom of the seat enough when it is all the way back and elevated. Having had two previous Highlanders I was disappointed that the seating in their newest edition made it a deal killer.

  • I love Toyota reliability but the overall body is boring to me ...but I love your vids always

  • Durability is not enough Toyota! We need some style. Sheesh. I will never buy a highlander again. So boring 😴

  • 🙂👍🏻

  • Seeing the design of the BZ4x you gotta ask yourself if/when will the Highlander change its form. I know it got a redesign in 2020, but that BZ4x design is simply > .. I will personally wait, and if push comes to shove we’ll get the GX. Not a fan of the new Highlander design. As always - great video!

  • Great review Joe 👍🏼 I think the Hyundai Palisades is the better choice

  • I hope the Car don´t needs Bronze Gas ??

  • looks very cheap... toyota never improve tech

  • Painted side fends

  • uzfire.info/camera/video/mKWshaqJkrZ_gJ0

  • This bronze edition is actually quite possible the ugliest edition is have seen.

    • “Is our children learning?” That’s the question

  • i'd be more interested if this were a Twinkie Highlander...

  • I hope the rumoured 'Grand Highlander' will offer more space and will be a PHEV.

  • Hey Joe, please upload your reviews on Instagram TV aswell because at times I can't access UZfire.

  • So the new highlander comes with the Camry engine 2019

  • Great review as always, however nothing to get excited about this edition..

  • When Toyota tries to up sell you plasti dip looking wheels. Lol

  • They came up with "bronze edition" to get rid of the bargain basement ugly as heck wheels? That color mixed on that car looks horrible... I thought someone stole the wheels so they had to throw some junk they found on the side of the road quickly... 🤢

  • 3:48 the alloy wheel still ugly hope they can put something better or option 20 inch wheel. Over all looks great

  • Wheels look horrible. I wish Toyota was more bold with their interior colors. How about navy blue seats with navy blue door panels? It’s frustrating that auto manufacturers just basically change the seat color and now that’s considered a completely different interior color option. What about the door panels or the lower half of the dash?

  • This is a perfect example of how wheels can completely destroy the looks of a good looking vehicle.

  • Cement and bronze do not mix well this thing is really looking ugly

  • This plastic looks good for me

  • I look at this car and still can't understand how people look at it and say "Damn that's hot"

  • How much bronze paint did Toyota buy? Are we going to see it on other Toyota/Lexus models?

  • ( Lori Thanks for your video magic!( Joe and Lori thanks for bringing this to us.YEP, Joe around the wheels should have been the same color NOT BLACK. I DIG this Vehicle very much! See you guys riding shotgun on another ride.

  • how bout paint the wheel wells...Twinkie yellow

  • I truly want to buy a mid sized SUV and wish terribly that they had made this just a bit bigger, as I adore Toyota reliability. Sadly I must now look at Kia/Hyundai which beat this in every category except long-term reliability. Thank you for your time on this review.

  • I agree with you Joe, paint the whole fender. I’m gonna have to zonk the bronze wheels though.👎🏻

  • The new generation of Toyota Highlander will be launched in China soon. Pre-order price is between $37,000 and $50,000

  • Toyota really needs to redo their infotainment counsel. It’s so dated and ugly

    • Your looking old too and need to replace you too. So out dated.

  • Please let us know if they fixed the dreaded wind noise at 75mph and the infotainment for full screen carplay. Thank you

    • I do hope Joe would ask toyota strait up if they have addressed the wind noise that’s plaguing alot of new buyers!

  • I'm zonking this entire vehicle. Bronze wheels are too small. Should be 19". 65 series sidewall look cartoonish. Probably looks great with a white Highlander, but clashes with the Gray color.

  • Those rims are abhorrent

  • Painted and how could you not mention the Nissan Pathfinder I think it’s going to be a real competitor coming from left wing.

  • The wheels would look so much better if the design was different, more sleek if you will. I actually like the bronze look.

  • I am fan Joe. been following you for a while. where is that 4runner.any changes happening there.

  • Is LeBron(ze) getting one

  • To be honest very ugly wheels😀

  • great review!!! as always BRO! Good JOB!

  • My gut reaction was, "Ugh, eww!" I liked bronze accents on cars ever since I saw the Genesis G80 but this is just god-awful!

    • I agree. Trimming the rims in bronze would have been better but this looks like someone decided to get a bronze grill for their teeth.😂😂

  • Nice video Thank you

  • Bronze painted wheels and some stitching really isn't enough for me to even go to a dealer to look at one, there's an old saying that is appropriate on something with a little flash in the pan - "where's the Beef?" Thanks Joe and Lori for another well done video.

  • Pretty nice upgrade of a 2022 Toyota hybrid I will do a car review while I’m at work for an all new 2022 Toyota hybrid

  • Not a fan of those bronze wheels. Terrible.

  • Look the same like the 2020 and 2021, I didn’t see any difference

  • Enjoy your channel

  • Hi, all eyes on the Toyota BY4Zx.

  • Toyota could've done a better job with this project, I think the Dodge Durango Brass Monkey pack looks better than this.

  • Awesome reviews as always.. damn u deserve a shit house more subscribers.. you one of the very few that makes car reviews fun! Love your sense of humour!😄 Hope we see this highlander here in New Zealand

  • Hope you are lovin' Texas!

  • Your demonstration of the sunroof is exactly why I hate sunroofs. Who wants to be blinded when driving

  • The highlander is a vehicle I want to like. I convince myself to like it because of its features however it looks too much like a minivan and a soccer mom car that I take a hard pass

  • You would think that with a company as big as Toyota, they wouldn't cut corners with the third row seating materials.🤦🏾‍♂️ #Zonk!
