Two hot selling models from Japanese automaker Toyota are the Highlander and Camry. Introduced in April 2000 at the New York Auto Show, the Highlander is a midsize crossover SUV that is constructed on the Camry platform. The first generation Highlander came in five and seven-seat configurations. Front-wheel drive was standard, but all-wheel drive models were also available.

The Spectre Performance Air Filter Cleaning Kit is also available to clean the Spectre HPR9360 when necessary.

Instead of many SUVs that debuted at the time, the first generation Highlander was built for on-road driving and provided great comfort due to its uni-body construction and independent rear suspension. The vehicle was available in three trim lines in the United States –- the base model, the sport model and the limited model.

Three different engines were used to power the first generation Highlander –- the 2.4-liter 2AZ-FE I4 that generated 155-horsepower; the 3.0-liter 1MZ-FE V6 that produced 220-horsepower; and the 3.3 liter 3MZ-FE V-6 offered 225-horsepower.

Now in its third generation, the Highlander is longer and wider. It can accommodate up to eight passengers and includes a sliding second row door that was designed to provide an additional 4.3-inches of additional interior space. Some of the high technology safety features on the vehicle include lane-departure warning, pre-collision warning and blind spot monitoring. HD Radio and Bluetooth are standard on the models sold in the United States. It is also equipped with Toyota’s Entune multimedia infotainment system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen display.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has rated the 2016 model with five stars in each of its test categories including overall, frontal driver, frontal passenger, side driver, side passenger, and side pole driver.

The newest model of the Highlander has been approved for use as a New York City taxicab. About 1,782,987 Highlanders were sold in the United States between 2001 and 2015.

Originally a compact car, the Toyota Camry was introduced in the United States in 1983. Now in its 11th Generation, the Camry comes with a choice of three engines –- a 2.5 liter four-cylinder hybrid, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that generates 178-horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque; and a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 268-horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. Power output has been increased from its previous generation due to an electro-hydraulic power steering system. Eleven models are offered –- the L, LE, SE, XLE, SE V6, XLE V6, Hybrid LE, Hybrid XLE and a Hybrid SE.

In 2013 the Camry celebrated its 30th year in the United States and had sold more than 10 million units. It was the best selling car in the United States for 11 consecutive years (2002-2013).

Despite all of the success Toyota has had with these two amazingly popular cars, there are always ways to improve your vehicle’s performance and usability.

Spectre offers the HPR9360 air filter for these two Popular Toyota models, and many others. Featuring Spectre’s HPR (High-Performance Replacement) synthetic filter media, these filters allow more airflow into your engine than ordinary disposable paper filters. This additional airflow can help improve horsepower and acceleration in your Toyota. The synthetic media is also washable, thereby allowing your to re-use your Spectre filter time and again!

Using precision engineering techniques, the HPR9360 air filter is made with an application specific sealing edge, creating a solid seal in your air box for excellent engine protection. They are also easy to install in just a few minutes using basic hand tools.

Spectre also offers the Performance Air filter Cleaning Kit that can be used to clean the filter when necessary. Once the filter is clean, it can be re-placed into the factory filter housing until the next cleaning is necessary. This means that you can continue to use the Spectre HPR9360 air filter over and over again without buying a new air filter for your car.
