2020 Toyota Highlander teaser

We're coming up on the annual New York International Auto Show, and Toyota is brewing up an all-new, fourth-generation 2020 ToyotaHighlandercrossover.

Ahead of its unveiling, the Japanese automaker has sought the services of augmented reality artist Michael Murphy in order to create a 3D illusion that sees the Highlander suspended on nearly-invisible strings like something out of the ending of Interstellar. When viewed from the ideal angle, the layers form the outline of the vehicle.

The Highlander itself doesn't appear to have changed much from the previous generation, a smart move for Toyota as the vehicle is a volume model.

Power will probably come from the company's 3.5-litre V6, which in Camry makes 224kW of power and 362Nm of torque, and is tied to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

First Teaser Trailer for MGM's Animated 'The Addams Family' Movie
This morning, MGM released the first trailer for the upcoming animated reboot, and it is full of Addams' satirical gags. Judging by the trailer, Matt Lieberman's script doesn't shy from the Addams' trademark sly asides.

Under the skin, the new Highlander, which will likely be sold again as the Kluger in Australia, is expected to ride on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).

Murphy has worked on other famous art installations as well, including a 2008 image of President Barack Obama.

Most importantly, this mind twisting illustration will be displayed "high in the sky" in NY in the moments leading up to the start of the auto show, projected on various buildings across the city.
