No matter where the day takes you, the 2016 Highlander Hybrid makes getting there a whole lot of fun. A large, versatile cargo space is ready to help carry everything you will need for all your daily adventures. With the great fuel efficiency offered on the Highlander Hybrid, taking the long way is never a problem. It’s time to start expecting more from every drive. Let’s go places.
Wherever the day takes you, you have the power to get there. Highlander Hybrid’s available Hybrid engine, a 3.5-Liter V6 Double Overhead Cam and electric motors (two, front and rear) generates 280 hybrid system net HP and still offers up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city and 28 mpg highway1.
A big part of enhancing the driving experience is making sure everyone is comfortable. Sometimes a short trip turns into a long one, so that’s why we optimize the comfort in unexpected places. Highlander is designed to be versatile, fun and comfortable, because some of the best memories are the ones you don’t plan for.
We designed the rear suspension of Highlander Hybrid to help maximize the space in the cargo area. This gives you plenty of room behind the third row for your things.
You can open the rear liftgate with the press of a button and adjust how high it opens with this available feature. If you have a garage with low clearance or a covered parking spot, you know how much this matters.
Some adventures are so big you have to tow them. No problem. A properly equipped Highlander Hybrid can tow up to 3500 lb. and comes standard with a heavy-duty radiator with engine oil cooler, 240-watt fan coupling and supplemental transmission oil cooler.
