The Highlander has a lot to offer, but it only ranks in the middle of the pack in the fiercely competitive mid-size SUV segment, which includes more than twenty vehicles.
In place of the Highlander's standard V-6 for 2023 is a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine.
The Highlander's standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 265 horsepower.
The most recent hybrid model we tested reached 60 mph in 7.3 seconds.
Toyota has only stated that the new turbocharged engine gets 24 mpg combined, so we have no idea what its city and highway ratings are.
Passenger space is larger than in the CX-9, but not as large as in the Chevrolet Traverse, particularly in the third row.
The Highlander Limited and Platinum come standard with a 12.3-inch display, with a secondary 12.3-inch screen serving as the gauge cluster.
