Fill up the 2021 Toyota Highlander Platinum with some sweet treats from Mora Iced Creamery this holiday season.

Let's Go Places: Dessert on the road

Even though the weather is getting chillier, there's always a place for quality ice cream in the freezer. Make all the pies you eat this holiday season "a la mode," and stock up at Mora Iced Creamery.

The creamery has four locations across the state, in Poulsbo, Kingston, Bainbridge Island and Covington. All of their flavors (and there are a lot) are made with a unique recipe that balances real ingredients with fresh whole milk and thick cream. The result is rich, smooth, and authentic ice cream you have to taste to believe.

To balance out the chill from your ice cream haul, you can drive the hottest ride on the market this year: the 2021 Toyota Highlander Platinum. Of all the Highlander models, the Platinum comes with the most premium technology options. This makes driving easier and more relaxing than ever.

The future of driving

Some of the coolest tech is at your fingertips as soon as you hop in the Highlander Platinum. That includes wireless phone charging, a digital rearview mirror, and Driver Easy Speak, which utilizes a microphone in the overhead console to broadcast your voice to speakers in the back.

It's impossible to miss the massive 12.3-inch touchscreen display on the center console, which is your connection to Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa. Eleven JBL speakers with a subwoofer and amplifier elevate your entertainment to the max and never run out of charge on your devices with four USB charging ports.

A 7-inch LCD Multi-Information Display shows you the odometer, fuel economy, speed, telephone information, and fuel economy right in front of you behind the steering wheel.

The massive interior of the Highlander Platinum seats 7 passengers, with a second row of fold-down captain's chairs and a third row of fold-flat reclining seats. The first- and second-row seats are leather-trimmed, and the front seats have heating and ventilation. The driver gets the best of all worlds with a heated steering wheel, too. Everyone can stay comfortable with a three-zone climate control system for all three rows of the Highlander.

As you drive, take advantage of four different modes, including Normal, Sport, Eco, and Snow mode, allowing you to adjust to whatever comes your way.

Safety is standard on all Toyota vehicles. The Highlander Platinum's Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ package relies on intuitive technology to provide a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Road Sign Assist and Automatic High Beams.

On Platinum models, the side mirrors alert you of vehicles approaching in your blind spots, fold inward for those tight parking spots, and tilt downward to increase visibility when reversing.

End your trip with parking that is easier than ever. The available Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking will help prevent avoidable fender benders. And the Bird's Eye View Camera uses four exterior cameras to provide gridlines that help you maneuver around obstacles. Perimeter Scan, 360-degree Overhead View, and Curb View are all at your disposal.

So what are you waiting for? Your next adventure awaits in the 2021 Toyota Highlander Platinum, which starts at $46,965 MSRP.
