For years, Toyota has been accused of making boring cars, but boring is the last word anyone would use to describe their newest special edition, the SpongeBob Squarepants-inspired 2014 Toyota Highlander.
Created in partnership with Nickelodeon, the SpongeBob 2014 Toyota Highlander is (thankfully) a one-of-a-kind vehicle setting sail for a nationwide tour called “Happy Driving!” that will stop in seven locations across the country including the Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando, FL, Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN, the Los Angeles auto show, and other locations in California, Illinois, and Maryland.
It might take a while to get past the wild paint scheme replete with multiple instances of SpongeBob’s enormous face, but once inside, the interior will truly make you feel like you are in Bikini Bottom with its underwater theme and SpongeBob-colored leather seats. Each of the 2014 Highlander’s seven headrests is embroidered with one of your favorite SpongeBob Squarepants characters, including Patrick, Sandy, and Squidward.
If Toyota’s vision of the SpongeBob 2014 Toyota Highlander does not float your boat, you can create your own hypothetical paint scheme at the model’s own website. Don’t expect a more mild interpretation, though, as the available color combinations and graphics on the configurator are no less eye-popping.
Back on land in the real world, the 2014 Toyota Highlander is completely redesigned and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2014. Pricing has not yet been announced, but we do know that the 2014 Highlander will offer a choice of three powertrains: a four-cylinder, a V-6, and a hybrid.
