Toyota Highlander Engine Specs

2021 Highlander Performance

The 2021 Highlander brings engineering to make it dominate the road. This SUV boasts 295 horsepower coming from its 3.5L V6 engine to give it a roar as you barrel down the highway. The 8-speed automatic transmission makes shifting into high gear smooth and seamless. Drivers can look forward to having all of this power just a fingertip away with Push Button Start.

This power is made for more than fun drives and turning heads on the road, however. The 2021 Highlander features a 5,000-pound towing capacity, making this a great option for those looking to bring payloads on the road with them. Whether you’re towing for work or play, driving the new Toyota Highlander means you will be ready for whatever comes next.
