What it is: The Toyota Highlander is a three-row SUV that competes with the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, Hyundai Santa Fe and others. It’s available as a hybrid or a traditional gas-powered SUV.
The base LE trim comes with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Other gas models use a 3.5-liter V-6 and eight-speed automatic, and they’re available with front- or all-wheel drive.
All Highlander Hybrid models come with a 3.5-liter V-6, continuously variable automatic transmission, nickel-metal-hydride battery pack and all-wheel drive. An electric motor powers the rear axle for on-demand AWD.
