Features of the 2021 Highlander Hybrid

Standard to all Highlander Hybrid models is the drivetrain of course.  Under the hood, you get a 2.5-liter gas engine with 186 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The electric motor provides some assistance as well giving you a net horsepower rating of 243.

When it comes to efficiency, the Highlander Hybrid puts up some outstanding numbers. You can get up to 36-city mpg and 35-highway mpg, and that’s with front-wheel drive. The Highlander Hybrid also offers all-wheel drive at all trim levels and for that upgrade, you only make a small sacrifice in city efficiency which is reduced to 35 mpg.
