2023 Toyota Highlander

What are the Trims & Features?

The Highlander’s current V-6 will be replaced in 2023 by a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine. Overall fuel efficiency is unchanged from that of the previous V-6 at 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres (l/100mi).

265 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque are the new engine’s outputs. For trailer control, it has Trailer Sway Manage with Vehicle Stability Control, which uses the vehicle’s stability control to keep the trailer from swaying.

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a new 12.3-inch infotainment display are now standard on the Limited and Platinum trims. For the most expensive models, the XSE trim adds a hands-free power-operated liftgate.
