Best New Features and Performance Specs of the 2020 Toyota Highlander 

It’s hard to stop a brand’s momentum when its new line of vehicles comes out ready to fire on all cylinders – that’s exactly what we’re seeing with Toyota, however, as just about every new model that it has introduced for the upcoming 2020 model year is almost assured to be a class leader. The Highlander is no different, as it will offer a chiseled new design, greatly upgraded efficiency, and even more bells and whistles to an already stellar package. Come see the best new features and performance specs of the 2020 Toyota Highlander with Toyota Palo Alto today!

The most striking new inclusion for the 2020 Highlander is the one that you’ll find hiding under its hood. There lies a smooth yet fierce 3.5-liter V6 engine, able to give you 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque at the right RPM level; with the right equipment, this translates to a maximum tow rating north of 5,000 pounds. With an 8-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission paired with this motor, shifting is seamless and more fun than ever behind the wheel.

To add to the excitement and adrenaline, the 2020 Highlander will also feature three All-Wheel Drive systems for you to choose from – two will come paired with its standard V6 engine, and if you’re looking for a more efficient treat, one AWD system will come with the all-new Highlander Hybrid trim. All these AWD systems come complete with Hill Start Assist Control, Trailer Sway Control and Downhill Assist Control, making every journey more comfortable and secure.

Design cues and dimensions of the 2020 Toyota Highlander 

Thanks to its fresh new three-row design, the 2020 Highlander has been left more aerodynamic and sculpted than ever. This not only allows it to achieve up to 34 highway miles per gallon with its hybrid trim (best-in-class, unsurprisingly), but its lower and longer stance gives you up to 73.3 cubic feet of cargo space – versatility and function. What more could you ask for?
