That’s a weakness of Toyota crossovers. They will only provide 4-pin wiring, even on the Highlander. It was one of the reasons I went with a Pilot rather than a Highlander. Every Pilot is pre-wired for 7-pin.
OTOH, one advantage of doing the wiring aftermarket is you can use a larger gauge wire for the charge line to deliver more power to charge the battery
