What's New for 2023?

The standard V6 engine in previous Highlander model years has been updated to a new turbocharged 2.4 liter four cylinder engine for 2023, which makes 265 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. A 12.3 inch Toyota Audio Multimedia touchscreen is now available in the XLE, XSE, Limited and Platinum trim levels. The Limited and Platinum trims now have power folding exterior mirrors. Stop by for a test drive today at Alderman's Toyota in Rutland.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside every model, you will find soft-touch materials, such as SofTex® simulated leather upholstery, which adds an upscale feel throughout the cabin. You'll also have seating for up to eight people depending on the configuration you choose. The exterior designs are equally impressive, with standard LED headlights helping you conquer dark roads around Castleton.

The 2023 Highlander comes with a comfortable and spacious interior. Lower trims are fitted with cloth-covered seats while higher trims feature leather-trimmed seats and upholstery. The L and the LE models come with a bench seat on the second row that allows them to carry eight passengers while the XLE and Limited models are fitted with a pair of captains' chairs that reduce passenger capacity to seven.

The Highlander features an impressive cargo volume. Behind the third row, the Highlander offers 16 cubic feet of cargo space, 48 cubic feet when the third row is folded, and 84 cubic feet when both the second and third-row are folded.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2023 Highlander comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, which features forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. This system can be upgraded to have blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a surround-view mirror.

Performance Capabilities

The performance capabilities of the Toyota Highlander are excellent, thanks to its direct fuel injection system that optimizes fuel efficiency while optimizing power output. With available AWD systems, including Multi-terrain Select (MTS) & Dynamic Torque Control (DTC), drivers have increased control when navigating rough terrain that they might encounter while navigating around Glens Falls. A Tow Prep Package option also allows owners to haul up 5,000 pounds along highways.

The new Highlander has an improved braking system to assist drivers in slowing or stopping their vehicle. The brakes deliver superior performance, and Toyota tests them extensively to ensure maximum safety. The suspension system is also top-of-the-line and provides a smooth, comfortable ride around Claremont.

Toyota Highlander Towing Capacity

While the new Toyota Highlander comes with many innovative features and a ton of space for all your friends, family, and additional cargo, it also boasts an impressive powertrain. Thanks to the robust engine of the new Highlander, you can tow up to an impressive 5,000 pounds.

With such a high towing capacity, you can easily tow your boat to the lake for a weekend getaway without any worries. If you have an exciting weekend project coming up, tow all the bulky materials you need to complete the job.

Available Trim Levels for the New Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander comes in several different trim levels that you can tailor to fit your lifestyle: L, LE, XLE, XSE, Limited, and Platinum. Each trim level builds on the base model's features with increasingly luxurious amenities, like heated leather seats and a power moonroof. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a rearview camera.

The mid-level XLE adds leather upholstery on the first two rows of seats, dual-zone climate control, and a power-adjustable passenger seat. It also offers a range of safety features, such as a blind spot monitoring system and a lane keep assist system to help drivers stay safe on the roads around Middlebury. For luxury seekers, the Limited trim includes an upgraded audio system, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, and ambient LED lighting.
