2022 Toyota Highlander in Gallup, NM

What's New in the 2023 Toyota Highlander?

The most significant change on the 2023 Toyota Highlander is a new available gasoline engine. Out goes the old 3.5-liter V6 and in comes a downsized 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The new engine is more fuel efficient and produces lower emissions. While it is down on horsepower in comparison, it develops 17% more torque at a lower rev band, resulting in better daily driving flexibility. This change doesn't affect the Highlander's 5,000-pound towing capacity, either.

The 2023 Highlander is available in 11 different grades (six gasoline and five hybrid). The base L trim is well-equipped with tri-zone climate control, Toyota's Safety Sense 2.5, and power-adjustable front seats, while higher trim levels offer options like second-row captain's chairs, an 11-speaker JBL sound system, and more. Other upgrades for the 2023 model year are a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touch screen for the infotainment system.

History of the Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander debuted in 2000 at the New York International Auto Show. By early 2001, the car was on the streets of North America, redefining what it meant to be an SUV. This was one of the first SUV models built on a car chassis, the Toyota Camry, making it one of the first crossovers. Typical SUV options are built on truck underpinnings.

In Japan, they call it the Toyota Kluger, which means one who is cleverer than another. The Chinese version of this car is the Crown Kluger - if you didn't know, most Toyota sedans are named after synonyms for crowns, so this is an apt name for a sedan-SUV crossover.

While hybrids might seem like a modern innovation, the Highlander has had a hybrid version since its first generation. The first generation debuted in 2000, but the Hybrid came out in 2005 as a 2006 model. It was introduced at the 2004 North American International Auto Show. Interestingly, this was the first seven-seat hybrid car. People often think hybrids are mainly about fuel efficiency, but this version was also more powerful.

Currently, the Toyota Highlander is on its fourth iteration. The current generation started with the 2020 model year, which debuted in late 2019. Minor upgrades happen every year, and there is a good chance that the Highlander will continue to be made for many more generations.
