Sloane Toyota of Philadelphia Reviews the 2023 Toyota Highlander

When it comes to space for your entire crew, the new Toyota Highlander is a favorite three-row, eight-passenger, SUV among our Philadelphia area drivers. Not only does this midsize SUV come with plenty of room to spread out, but it also offers the power you need, the technological advancements to make your drive better, and a long list of safety features and programs to assist with your daily commute. It's also one of the only three-row SUVs to have a hybrid option available, and includes a plethora of creature comforts to relax you along the way. We encourage every Center City, Trevose, or beyond driver to take a closer look at the new Toyota Highlander today!

What's Been Updated?

A shift in standard gas engines is this year's largest new Highlander update. The 3.5-liter V6 engine is out. A 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder one is in. The new engine delivers 265-horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque. The change is designed for smoother handling, especially when passenger and cargo capacities are utilized. Fuel efficiency remains the same as the V6 for this higher-torque engine with an estimated 24 MPG combined.

2023 Highlander Limited and Platinum trim levels receive new 12.3-inch infotainment displays and 12.3-inch digital gauge clusters. As a result, users can now access multimedia across the entire screens in glare-reducing environments. Those high-end trims also gain power-folding exterior mirrors. The XLE and XSE add a hands-free power-operated rear liftgate.

Additionally, the new Highlander's wireless charging capabilities improved with a location switch. The Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charger, previously in the center console box, is now on the instrument panel shelf.
