Great vehicle!

Have had 2 Toyota Rav Limiteds and they were great. Decided to go with something a little bigger this time so got a preowned 2023 Highlander Limited. Love the ride, quieter than the Rav 4 and definitely more room. It’s only 3 inches wider, but 10 inches longer. Seems like the front area is quite a bit bigger than the Rav. Great...

Awful car

The engine is awful. Has no power. It doesn't change gears quickly. It's also a very noisy engine and makes terrible noises when accelerating. I would stay far far away from this car

2023 Toyota Highlander review: Our expert's take

By Aaron Bragman

Big engines will be on the out-skis if the trends in the auto industry continue as they have been over the last decade, with V-8s and now V-6s starting to disappear and their replacements having fewer cylinders, as well as turbochargers, to keep power levels where customers want them, or even beyond. The latest example is the Toyota Highlander, which ditches the corporate V-6 engine in favor of a new turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder for 2023. The new engine and some new interior multimedia screens — and a new Cypress Green paint color — are the extent of the changes for the popular Highlander for the new model year, but this is likely enough to keep it at the top of the sales charts for its category. We recently had a quick spin of the 2023 Highlander at a media event in Nashville, Tenn., and we were curious to see how the new turbo engine compares with the smooth V-6 that was popular in the big mid-size SUV.
