Consider the Highlander Hybrid
Toyota’s renowned self-charging gas and electric Hybrid powertrain is standard on all Highlander Hybrid models. It includes advanced features like regenerative braking to recapture energy so you never have to plug in, while delivering a robust 243 net horsepower. In short, it’s the no compromise family SUV.
- FUEL EFFICIENCY RATING : 6.7 L /100km
- HORSEPOWER : 243
- HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE :2.5 Litre, 4‑Cylinder
Drive Mode Select
Choose from 4 drive modes to suit your mood or the moment. Normal mode is ideal for everyday driving. Eco mode makes the most efficient use of gas and battery power. Sport unlocks boost from the hybrid system for more exciting acceleration. And EV lets you drive using electric power only at low speeds for longer distances.
Highlander Hybrids never need to be plugged in. They recharge on the go, using innovations like regenerative braking to capture and transform energy into electricity and store it in the battery.
No Additional Maintenance
Highlander’s high-performance battery is designed to last. And Toyota hybrids require no additional routine maintenance. In fact, they follow the same maintenance schedule as our conventionally-powered vehicles.
Powerful & Efficient Gas Engine
The available 265-horsepower, 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine serves up an ideal blend of power and efficiency. Backed by next-generation technology, like Dual Variable Valve Timing-with intelligence (Dual VVT-i), and mated to an 8-speed direct shift automatic transmission – putting power and responsiveness at your fingertips, while helping to make the most of every litre.
UP TO 5000-LB TOWING CAPACITY*
Turns out you can take it with you. On Highlander Hybrid models, you can tow up to 3,500 lbs of cargo. On gas models, the available towing package allows you to take 5,000 lbs along for the ride. Features include: a heavy-duty radiator, engine oil cooler, and Trailer Sway Control (TSC) to restrict unwanted trailer movement.
Whenever you come to a full stop – like at a stop light – Highlander’s engine automatically shuts off to save fuel and reduce emissions. Lift your foot from the brake pedal, and the engine instantly restarts, to get you effortlessly on your way.
Go with confidence. Available Multi-Terrain Select lets you choose between four modes – Mud & Sand, Rock & Dirt, Snow, and Normal – helping to maximize traction when the roads or the weather take a turn for the worse.
DYNAMIC TORQUE VECTORING AWD (DTV-AWD) WITH REAR DRIVELINE DISCONNECT
Think of it as the ultimate multi-tasker. A Toyota-first, DTV-AWD can send up to 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, then distributes power to the wheel that needs it most – enhancing stability, responsiveness and control. When it isn’t needed, the system sends all driving force to the front wheels to improve fuel economy and deliver a smoother ride.
ELECTRONIC ON-DEMAND ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD)
With a dedicated electric motor for the rear wheels, Hybrid models adapt based on driving conditions – from 100 percent to the front wheels, to an even 50:50 split between front and rear. It all happens seamlessly and automatically to give you better traction when the going gets tough, and performance that brings a smile when accelerating and cornering.
