Toyota Highlander Specs

The Toyota Highlander offers two capable powertrains, including a 3.5L V6 engine that gets up to 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines get efficient production thanks to Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i). With its smart design and capable transmission, this SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

While front-wheel drive is standard, a Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive System is also available. Whichever drivetrain you choose, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and a Traction Control System come standard. Plus, with an 8-inch ground clearance, you can take it over all kinds of terrain.

Toyota Highlander Interior Dimensions

There's room for the whole family inside the Toyota Highlander. It has three rows of seats and can comfortably carry up to eight people. You'll even have a choice between a second-row bench seat or two captain's chairs.

Riders in every row can stretch out and relax with 44.2 inches of front legroom, 38.4 inches in the second row, and 27.7 inches of rear legroom.

Behind the seats, you'll find a convenient trunk with 13.8 cubic feet of space. The interior is designed to be as versatile as the drivetrain though. With folding seats in both the second and third rows, you can get up to 83.7 cubic feet of cargo room.

Toyota Highlander Technology

Up on your dashboard, the Toyota Highlander offers the easy to use Entune™ Audio infotainment system. You'll be able to control it through either a 6.1- or 8-inch touchscreen or by using Siri® Eyes Free.

It's Bluetooth® compatible, so you can stream music and podcasts from your smartphone, as well as safely make hands-free phone calls.

The system can also deliver an excellent soundtrack during your drive with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, HD Radio™, and 12 JBL® GreenEdge™ speakers.

Plus, you can even keep your passengers entertained on your longest road trips. The available rear-seat Blu-ray Disc® entertainment system features a 9-inch screen that flips down from the ceiling where your passengers can watch their favorite movies.

Toyota Highlander Safety

Your infotainment screen can also be used as a safety feature. Whenever you shift into reverse, it switches its display to show you what the backup camera sees behind you.

It's just one of the many safety features that comes standard. The Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) system helps prevent accidents with features like a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detections.

Inside the cabin, you can have peace of mind knowing that your SUV will keep you safe with eight standard airbags.
