Available in conventional and self-charging hybrid powertrains, with room for seven or eight adults, the Highlander features a range of models and grades that let you pick the vehicle that suits your style. Regardless of your choice, every Highlander delivers tremendous comfort, performance, style, technology and safety.
“Canadians know the Toyota Highlander is the perfect choice to create family adventures and memories to last a lifetime,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Ready for weekend getaways, and comfortable enough for daily driving, the Toyota Highlander has the safety, driving fun and features that let Canadians focus on the journey – wherever life takes them.”

The 2019 Toyota Highlander is offered with a choice of three powertrains:
The conventionally powered Toyota Highlander is offered in two choices – front wheel drive and all wheel drive with an active torque control system and downhill assist control. These Highlander models feature a 295 peak horsepower 3.5 L V6. XLE and Limited trim levels include an engine stop and start system to further enhance fuel efficiency. This engine is matched with an eight-speed direct shift automatic transmission, while the powertrain features hill start assist control.
Drivers may also choose the Highlander Hybrid, built around the most popular and proven self-charging gasoline-electric powertrain on the planet. This 306 net horsepower Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive is specifically tailored to the Highlander Hybrid, featuring a 3.5 L V6 and high-torque electric motor/generator. Power is applied to the four wheels through an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission for confident acceleration and remarkable fuel efficiency – at just 8.3 L / 100 KM (city/highway combined).
Electric power steering, a front suspension featuring MacPherson struts, and a double wishbone rear suspension with trailing arms enhance responsiveness, control and ride comfort.
