They did it for aerodynamics and fuel efficiency reasons. It does matter then.

Looks nothing like the new highlander, other than they are similarly sized and CUV like. If you saw them side by side you would retract that statement.

Japan gets a twin-spool turbo (we don't) and has different regulations. The USDM is down tuned for inconsistent fuel qualities from one part of the country to another and to meet all state EPA regulations.

As a current 05 XT owner, this is the first time in over 5 years that I have considered a newer forester.
