Toyota Highlander: Fuel Economy & Engine Specifications
To begin, let's look at the available fuel economies you'll be able to choose from in the Toyota Highlander. You'll either have an EPA-estimated 20 city MPG/24 highway MPG1 or an EPA-estimated 21 city MPG/27 highway MPG.1
These different fuel economies stem from the varying engines offered by Toyota. The first is a 2.7L 4-cylinder that generates 185 horsepower, and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine offers the 20 city MPG.
The alternative choice is a 3.5L V6 capable of generating 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque. This engine offers 21 city MPG.
Finally, for even more fuel efficiency, you can go with the Hybrid 3.5L V6 that offers 306 system net horsepower.
Drivetrain & Performance Features
A large part of the efficiency found in the Highlander is thanks to the refined drivetrains available, along with a bevy of supportive performance features.
Your drivetrain options include a highly refined 6-speed automatic transmission, a direct-shift 8-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode, or the electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT) with sequential shift mode.
Your Toyota SUV also sports notable performance features like an electronic on-demand AWD system with intelligence, a sport-tuned independent MacPherson strut front suspension, and a sport-tuned double-wishbone style multi-link rear suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars.
Start and Stop Engine System
The last bit of technology that directly impacts the fuel economy of your Toyota Highlander is the start and stop engine system.
With this optional technology, your SUV's engine will shut off once you've reached a full stop, like at a stoplight. This helps you conserve fuel when you're not moving and requires no excessive work on your end. As you release the brake pedal, your engine will restart, just in time for you to once again be on your way.
