When you drive a 1995 van it’s easy to be impressed by the style and features of a new car. But with the 2015 Toyota Highlander Hybrid it’s a chance to experience pure luxury on the road. We were loaned this beautiful vehicle to make the trip from our home near Seattle, Washington, across the Snoqualmie and Blewitt passes to Wenatchee, Washington.
