Toyota Highlander: MPG and Engine Specs Highlander

If you’re someone who requires three rows of seating and 83.7 cubic feet of cargo space, it’s safe to assume you lead an active lifestyle. To help keep you out on the road longer, Toyota equipped the Highlander with efficient engineering, starting with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, inside each of its engines.

Those who choose the 3.5L V6 Atkinson-cycle engine also enjoy the benefit of the built-in Stop and Start Engine System. This technology helps you conserve fuel when idling in traffic. Once you release your foot from the brake pedal, the system seamlessly restarts your engine.

This pairs perfectly with the Toyota Highlander’s available 6-speed or 8-speed ECT-i automatic transmission with Dynamic Rev Management. All this smart engineering combines to create one of the most fuel-efficient 3-row SUVs on the market:

Toyota Highlander: Capability and Strength

From snowy city streets to steep mountain roads, the Toyota Highlander is carefully designed to provide a firm grip to match its already smooth drivability.

The Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive system evenly and automatically adjusts braking power between all four tires. This feature greatly reduces slippage and threat of a spinout.

Thanks to its reinforced unibody construction, this is an SUV which steers like a sedan and hauls like a small pickup. When properly configured with a heavy-duty radiator, the Toyota Highlander delivers a 5,000-pound max towing capacity.


Ways To Maximize Your Toyota Highlander MPG

The Highlander has a proven track-record when it comes to efficiency and everyday capability. Still, there are several steps you can take as a driver to make sure you’re getting the most out of your weekly trips to the gas station. This includes:

  • Changing your oil every 5,000-7,000 miles
  • Checking the PSI levels and health of your tires
  • Limiting extra weight and frequent towing
