How Does a Toyota Highlander Hybrid Work?
The Toyota Highlander SUV is already loved and well-known as the perfect family hauler, but did you know it also comes in hybrid form? Proving just as capable as its gas engine iteration, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid was recently awarded the number one spot in U.S. News’ ranking of midsize SUVs and was also named a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick, making it an ideal choice for Ballwin families.
Push The Limits of Typical Hybrid Models
The 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid works by utilizing an efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to an electric motor to deliver 306 hybrid system net horsepower, up to 3,500 lbs of towing capability, and an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The Highlander Hybrid model’s two drive modes can also help you save more at the pump by only engaging the electric motor for short distance, low-speed driving trips in EV mode and modifies throttle responses when ECO mode is selected.
As if the increased fuel economy and towing power weren’t enough, this midsize SUV offers the everyday performance, convenience, and safety features that family buyers expect from a Toyota vehicle. The Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive with intelligence (AWD-i) drivetrain gives you better control when the journey heads into uncharted territory while it’s roomy interior and spacious cargo area comfortably seats up to eight passengers and all their gear. Safety is also at the forefront of every trip in Ballwin as each Highlander Hybrid model comes standard with Toyota’s suite of safety features, Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P), and includes technologies like lane departure alert, dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection.
