2019 Toyota Highlander

Performance

Built to go places


3.5 liter V6

The available 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine helps give Highlander the perfect blend of power and efficiency.  Engineered using Toyota's next-generation technologies, this advanced engine is mated to a sophisticated Direct Shift-8AT (8-speed Automatic Transmission) to help give you more control.  These components work brilliantly together to help give Highlander brisk acceleration off the line, and more mpg when cruising at speed. 


MPG

Optimizing fuel efficiency means making enhancements all over- like the transmission and efficient engine that helps to enhance EPA mpg estimates and earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV-II) rating.


Stop and Start Engine System

The efficient Stop and Start Engine System (S&S) is available on V6 gas-powered Highlanders.  This technology shuts the engine off when Highlander is at rest, like at a stoplight, to help you save more fuel.  When it's time to go, releasing the brake pedal seamlessly restarts the engine so you can effortlessly get on your way.


Available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive

When the road gets adventurous, Highlander embraces it with available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD).  It distributes engine power from front to rear and manages the vehicle's braking system from side to side, giving you better control.


Available 5000-lb. towing capacity

Some adventures are so big you have to tow them.  No problem.  Highlander can be equipped to tow up to 5000 lbs.


Interior

As versatile as you


USB ports

With a total of five USB ports, it's easy to power up the family road trip.  Three USB ports up front and two USB ports in the rear help everyone keep their favorite portable electronic devices plugged in.


Seating for up to 8

Highlander's roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight people and provides more comfort along the way with reclining third-row seats.  Available second-row captain's charis help Highlander comfortabley seat seven and offer the same great versatility.  You can even get heated second-row captain's chairs on the Limited grade with Platinum Package.


Cargo space

Waste no space.  We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear.  And since every journey's different, Highlander is there to adapt.  Sometimes you've got lots of people, lots of gear or a mix of both.  The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.


Quiet interior

Part of enjoying the road is to not hear it.  Highlander has silencing insulation materials along its floor to help keep things quiet, as well as acoustic-type glass in the windshield to further reduce noise entering the cabin.


Panoramic moonroof

In-seat entertainment for everyone.  Your passengers have the whole sky to entertain them, thanks to the available panoramic moonroof that is part of the Platinum Package.


Rear-seat entertainment

Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough.  Let the available rear-seat Blu-ray DiscTM entertainment system help.  The 9-in. display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones.
