TORONTO, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - The Toyota Highlander is a better breed of vehicle - delivering passenger car-like handling and control coupled with the power and versatility of a mid-size SUV.
The four-cylinder, front wheel drive Toyota Highlander achieves remarkable fuel efficiency - just 9.0 L/100 KM - while still delivering ample power and performance for most drivers. Its 2.7L 4-cylinder engine generates up to 187 horsepower and up to 186 lb-ft of torque, for a 1,587 KG (3,500 lb) towing capacity. A six-speed sequential shift electronically controlled automatic transmission ensures strong acceleration at any speed for confident driving.
For those who need more power, there are three models equipped with a 3.5L V6 that generates 270 peak horsepower and up to 248 lb ft of torque, capable of towing up to 2,268 KG (5,000 lb). Mated to a five-speed sequential shift electronically controlled automatic transmission, these Highlanders offer the additional driving confidence of full-time 4 wheel drive, and achieve a combined city/highway fuel efficiency of 10.8 L/100 KM.
