If you peer into the performance of the 2020 Toyota Highlander, you’ll see a potent V6 engine as one option and a fuel-sipping hybrid motor as the other. Going with the 3.5L V6 gives your SUV access to 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque.
The hybrid engine is a 2.5L whose net horsepower measures 243. Of course, if you’re going hybrid, it’s the fuel economy you’re after. The hybrid Highlander receives an estimated 36 city MPG/ 35 highway MPG.1
Still, the V6 gets pretty good returns on fuel economy, too. In front-wheel drive, the SUV returns an EPA-estimated 21 city MPG/ 29 highway MPG with the 3.5L engine.2
A comfortable and usable cabin is often the most important factor for families or folks who love to take long weekend trips. With the Toyota Highlander, you have access to a spacious and versatile SUV.
The headroom measures 41.2 inches up front, 39.4 inches in the middle row, and 36.1 inches in the very back. Legroom is also a plus, measuring 42 inches up front, 41 inches in the middle, and 27.7 inches for those positioned in the third row.
Then, it’s a matter of cargo volume, which can be broken up into three key categories:
If you feel that the ample cargo volume isn’t enough space for you, or you want an SUV that is capable of hauling your boat up to the lake each weekend, the Toyota Highlander has your back.
Even if you opt for the hybrid motor, you’ll receive a sturdy towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. By opting instead for the V6 engine, you’ll see an impressive maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds!
