2019 Highlander: All-Star Performance

Toyota Highlander Engine SpecsYou can accelerate with purpose in the 2019 Highlander. Equip your SUV with the available 3.5L V6 engine and take on highways or city streets with a bit more energy. It serves up 295 horsepower with the all-gas powertrain and 306 horsepower as part of a hybrid system.

Efficient excursions await in the Highlander Hybrid. It offers not just the most potent engine, but the most fuel-conscious: You’ll see an EPA-estimated 30 city/28 highway MPG.1 Go farther on less fuel—especially with the ECO or EV mode engaged.

Want more control over your drive? The Highlander offers available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD) to make it happen. Enjoy a more balanced, tractive time on the roads.

Interior Quality: Spacious Midsize SUV

The Toyota Highlander makes room for the whole family with three rows of seats. Adults will find plenty of space in the first two rows, while row three is perfect for three kids. Overall, this SUV seats up to eight passengers (or seven, if you choose the second-row captain’s chairs).

Split-folding second and third rows let you configure the Highlander for people, cargo, or a mix of both. Fold those rearmost rows and find up to 83.7 cubic feet for cargo. Make room for everything from bikes to camping gear and more for your next outing.

In the sweltering heat of those North Carolina summers, available three-zone automatic climate control will come in handy! Hand your passengers the controls for their own seating zones.

Safety Features of the Highlander

Toyota HighlanderDrive with more awareness on the roads with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. This active safety suite is standard on every 2019 Highlander and helps you monitor what’s happening around you. It includes several systems, such as:

  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

You can keep a consistent pace with the traffic around you—and be forewarned if a front-end collision is imminent. Can’t reach the brakes in time? The system may automatically apply them to reduce your speed and lower the likelihood or severity of an accident.

An available Bird’s Eye View Camera lets you see what’s happening in every direction. With a 360-degree view around your vehicle, you can navigate even the tightest spaces with ease!
