What Upgrades Does the 2023 Toyota Highlander Come With?
The Toyota Highlander remains one of the best midsize SUVs on the market, with its spacious cargo room and three-row seating. It has been a popular choice among families that need that extra row of seats. Furthermore, it is also fun to drive around town with a bevy of in-vehicle technologies. The latest iteration of the Highlander has been making a lot of noise with the upgrades it brings to the table. For instance, it offers buyers a completely new turbocharged engine, which is a departure from all its previous models.

What is the Engine Configuration of the 2023 Highlander?
The Highlander has ditched its V6 for the 2023 model in favor of a more potent turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This is the first time that Toyota has broken away from its success formula for the Highlander and endowed the SUV with an engine upgrade.
Each Highlander is powered by a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that makes 265 horsepower and 309 lb.-ft. of torque. The SUV is also available in a hybrid variant that starts at $40,220 and offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 36 mpg in combined driving.

What Technology Updates Does the Highlander Receive this Year?
The upgrades received by the Highlander are not limited to just its turbocharged engine. The automaker has generously revamped the SUV’s vehicular technologies. The digital instrument display on the Limited and Platinum trims is now 12.3 inches. Also, the XLE and XSE trims get a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen display this year. Therefore, you don’t have to spend more than your budget to get a trim that comes with a bigger touchscreen. One final elegant touch that the Highlander’s technologies come with in 2023 is that wireless smartphone connectivity is now standard across all the grades.
