Explore the 2020 Toyota Highlander's New Architecture and Technology

Powerful enough to deliver just less than 300 hp, a six-cylinder engine block drives the 2020 Toyota Highlander. Combustion in this 3.5 L powertrain begins in the direct injection system. This conventional gas engine cranks out slightly less than 265 pound-feet of torque. A towing package is available to optimize the vehicle's trailering capacity for up to 5,000 pounds. The Trailer Sway Control guarantees directional stability on curved roads.

If you desire a more efficient drive in this Toyota SUV, then get the hybrid powertrain. Whipping out a maximum of 240 hp, an I-4 gas engine with a 2.5 L displacement is integrated into the fuel-saving system. Supplemental power is supplied by two electric motors and a battery. When tested on the highway and in the city based on EPA criteria, the Highlander has a combined fuel economy of 34 MPG. This impressive figure indicates a 17 percent improvement compared to the previous year. Optimized to propel the vehicle at slow speeds for short trips, the EV Mode is available for the hybrid powertrain. If you want maximum output from the gas engine, engage the Sport Mode. Other options that are available for the hybrid system include the Normal and Comfort modes.

Equipped with the Multi-Terrain Select, the 2020 Toyota Highlander isn't afraid to explore new territories. The Rock & Dirt Mode is available for this highly adaptive technology that boosts off-road performance. Whether you're on a beach or swamp, the Sand & Mud Mode provides reliable traction. This Toyota SUV also has an updated all-wheel drive that receives variable torque from the Dynamic Torque Vectoring function. The spin in the rear and front wheels is regulated by the Driveline Disconnect technology. Set up in the instrument panel, the MID shows the torque settings and other important parameters.

By adding a 12.3-inch display to the 2020 Toytoa Highlander, the designers at Toyota have surely made this model a class-leader in electronic technology. This segment-best installation includes a GPS navigation system and an array of other applications. Waze is integrated into the all-new infotainment system, and Google Maps are also available in Android Auto. Amazon Alexa supplements the cues that are provided by Google Assistant or Siri. A limited-time trial to SiriusXM All Access is available in this premium Toyota SUV. When you turn the 11 JBL speakers to full volume, you'll hear great sound quality. This 1,200-watt audio system also carries the Clari-Fi label.

The 2020 Toyota Highlander offers a cargo volume of more than 73 cubic feet behind the front row seats. Standard in the XLE and above trims, captain's chairs are part of a seven-seat configuration. Otherwise, the second and third rows have adjustable seats to accommodate a total of six passengers. The signature SofTex trimming is applied to the seats and door inserts. Illuminated door scuff plates and a panoramic sunroof are some premium installations in the Platinum edition.
