For the 2023 model year, the Toyota Highlander does away with its standard V6 and introduces a turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder engine that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is available). The updated powertrain delivers 265 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque, making your drive as exciting as your destination. With an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined, the 2023 Toyota Highlander is an ideal choice for family road trips and weekly carpooling duties.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander can keep up with your busy lifestyle, both on and off the pavement. All-wheel-drive models include Multi-Terrain Select, which consists of four modes (Mud and Sand, Rock and Dirt, Snow, and Normal) to provide extra traction and maximize driving performance on different surfaces. If you regularly tow a trailer, boat, or camper, the 2023 Highlander is also up to the task. When properly equipped, this SUV's turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder engine can pull an estimated 5,000 lbs.
You don't have to forego agile performance when you choose the 2023 Toyota Highlander. The mid-range XSE trim has all the trappings of an athletic SUV. This model comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension that helps the Highlander hug the road tightly. Retuned shock absorbers, higher-rate springs, and a rear stabilizer bar also enhance this SUV's handling, while its lower aggressive stance and chrome-plated twin-tip exhaust add to the Highlander XSE's sporty appeal.
Great for big families and large groups, the 2023 Toyota Highlander features a spacious cabin with standard eight-passenger seating in the L and LE trims, or seven-passenger seating in XLE and higher trims with second-row captain's chairs. With 38.7 inches of second-row legroom and 28 inches in the third row, your crew will enjoy generous stretch-out space. Additionally, there's 16 cu-ft of cargo space with all rows in place—plenty of room for four carry-on suitcases. However, if you need extra capacity, folding the 60/40 split third-row seats opens up 48.4 cu-ft, or 84.3 cu-ft with the second and third rows folded.
Whether road-tripping with the kids or commuting to the office, you'll appreciate the 2023 Toyota Highlander's many standard connectivity features. Base models start with an eight-inch infotainment system, but Limited and Platinum trims include a larger 12.3-inch display and a secondary 12.3-inch screen that serves as the gauge cluster. Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration are also standard, with four USB charge ports and hands-free phone and music streaming capabilities using Bluetooth® wireless technology. Additionally, available 4G connectivity can turn your SUV into a convenient hotspot.
