The 2023 Toyota Highlander is a capable family hauler and a relaxing cruiser. Packed with standard features and offered with a wide array of premium amenities, the Highlander is remarkably luxurious, particularly at the Limited and Platinum trim levels. It’s also offered as a Bronze Edition model that enhances its curb appeal to a level that matches its interior sophistication.
For the 2023 model year, the Toyota Highlander’s former V6 engine is replaced by a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers a more satisfying blend of performance and fuel economy. It’s rated at 265 horsepower and uses an eight-speed automatic transmission with either front- or all-wheel drive.
Also on offer is a hybrid model that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors. It generates 243 horsepower and uses a continuously variable automatic transmission, and like the gas-only Highlander, is offered with either FWD or AWD. Overall, the 2023 Toyota Highlander has a smooth ride and relaxed handling. It’s the kind of SUV that always feels comfortable to drive whether you’re bringing the whole family to a holiday gathering or commuting home from work.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander makes it simple to stay connected on the go. All models have standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone compatibility, enabling you to use your favorite apps on the high-resolution infotainment touch screen. The Highlander Limited and Platinum use dual 12.3-inch screens, one acting as the primary central display and the other as a fully digital instrument cluster with four different drive modes called Casual, Smart, Tough, and Sporty. The infotainment system also includes Amazon Alexa compatibility, four USB-C ports, satellite radio, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and more. The top trim levels get wireless device charging, so it’s easier than ever to eliminate cable clutter from the cabin.
It’s common for three-row SUVs like the Highlander to compromise cargo space for the sake of those third-row passengers. But the Highlander is not like other SUVs. Even though that back row is spacious enough for your tallest kids, there’s still 16 cubic feet of room in the trunk for a huge grocery trip. Folding the third row unlocks over 48 cubic feet of space, while folding the second row flat increases total capacity to an impressive 84.3 cubic feet.
It’s not just cargo that gets to enjoy the ride, though. With heated and ventilated seats trimmed in perforated leather, a panoramic roof, heated second-row seats, and an 11-speaker JBL® sound system, the Highlander Platinum’s occupants are treated to a truly luxurious experience. And if you opt for the Highlander Bronze Edition, the American mid-century interior design is a showstopper.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander is exceptionally well-equipped with a wide array of intelligent safety features. Every model has Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+, which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, automatic high beams, full-speed dynamic radar adaptive cruise control, and lane departure alert with steering assistance. Altogether, these technologies help you avoid accidents and can even actively intervene to prevent or mitigate one. Upgrading to the Limited adds front and rear parking sensors with automatic braking while the Platinum gets adaptive front lighting, a 360-degree camera system, a digital rearview mirror, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The 2023 Highlander Platinum also has a head-up display, enabling drivers to see critical driving and safety information without taking their eyes off the road.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander is as complete as a three-row SUV can be. Capable, comfortable, well-equipped, packed with safety features, and impressively sophisticated for shoppers seeking more luxurious amenities, it’s the ideal ride for daily driving and weekend adventures.
