Meet The 2023 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander is a popular choice among many shoppers thanks to its solid value proposition, available hybrid powertrain, an extensive suite of high-tech standard features, and richly-appointed higher trim levels that reminds us of the brand’s luxury arm, Lexus.

The Toyota Highlander gets a new standard engine for the 2023 model year. The Japanese automaker has also updated the Highlander’s infotainment system. A 2023 Toyota Highlander lease deal guarantees a reliable three-row SUV with everything the whole family could ask for.

Engine And Performance 

The Toyota Highlander still offers two potent powertrain options; however, the standard powertrain is now a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that hooks up with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine puts out 265 horses and 310 lb-ft of torque against the 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft from the outgoing V6. Shoppers looking to save up on gas money can opt for the optional fuel-sipping hybrid setup comprising a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors that team up with a continuously variable automatic transmission and cough out 243 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains can be had with either front- or all-wheel drive. The Highlander won’t turn on your inner racer, but it sure delivers a stable and comfortable ride.

Fuel Economy

According to EPA estimates, the Highlander’s most fuel-efficient arrangement consists of the hybrid powertrain and front-wheel drive, and it is rated 36 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. Upgrading to all-wheel drive reduces the city rating by 1mpg. On the other hand, the thirstiest Highlander is the model with the turbo-4 and all-wheel drive. It gets an EPA rating of 21 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.


The Highlander gets a state-of-the-art interior, and like other vehicles in Toyota’s lineup, the SUV’s cabin tends to get luxurious as you ascend the trim levels. By default, the Highlander seats up to eight passengers; opting for the optional second-row captain seats reduces the number to seven. An extensive suite of modern high-tech features is standard. However, shoppers looking to give their family the best treatment will consider adding features like an 11-speaker JBL stereo system, two 12.3-inch displays serving as the center touchscreen and digital instrument cluster, a panoramic moonroof, etc.

Safety And Driver Assistance

Some of the Highlander’s safety and driver assistance features include;

  • Blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Pre-collision system with pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane departure alert with steering assist
  • Lane tracing assist
  • Road sign assist
  • Front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, etc.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
