Toyota has filed a trademark application in the US and Canada for "Grand Highlander". As the name suggests, it will be a larger version of the Highlander likely with more 3rd row passenger room, more cargo space and rear end design changes to reflect the additional space.

I heard they were killing the Sequoia, so maybe this is the replacement. I wonder if it would be bigger than the Highlander or just a fancier version.

I figure Toyota normally would just add a trim level if it was a version of the current model, so it has to be entirely new.

Maybe it's based on the next-gen Tundra chassis???

I would like to see a bigger and fancier Highlander that's a bit more Lexus-like. Sales for it are some of the best for an SUV, meanwhile Sequoia sales have been within chopping block territory for some time.
