Toyota Highlander Engine Specs & MPG

The Toyota Highlander engine specs will vary depending whether you choose a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration. By sending power for all four wheels, AWD configurations provide added traction and control on challenging surfaces. With power restricted to the front axle, you’ll see more efficient Highlander engine specs with a FWD model:

  • Highlander MPG with FWD – EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway/24 combined mpg
  • Highlander MPG with AWD – EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway/ 23 combined mpg

With a gas-powered 3.5L V6 engine and direct shift 8-Speed automatic transmission, the Toyota Highlander engine specs are as follows:

  • Highlander Engine Output – 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque
  • Highlander Towing Capacity – Up to 5,000 pounds

Highlander Hybrid MPG

Next, we’ll look at how the Highlander hybrid mpg compares to the gasoline-powered Highlander mpg. The Highlander Hybrid is a smart investment if fuel economy is a top concern for you as a driver — offering the same AWD capability and advanced interior features as the standard Highlander, along with a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain that delivers significantly better fuel economy:

  • Highlander Hybrid MPG with FWD – EPA-estimated 36 mpg city/35 mpg highway/36 combined mpg
  • Highlander Hybrid MPG with AWD – EPA-estimated 35 mpg city/35 mpg highway/35 combined mpg

The Highlander engine specs see a major boost if you opt for the 2.5L four-cylinder ECVT Hybrid powertrain. Compare the FWD vs. AWD Highlander Hybrid mpg specs here:

  • Highlander Hybrid Engine Output – 186 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque
  • Highlander Hybrid Towing Capacity – Up to 3,000 pounds
