New 2020 Toyota Highlander - Performance
3.5-liter V6 engine
The epitome of power and smoothness. Highlander's advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 295 hp and 263 lb.-ft. of torque. Flex some muscle with its 5000-lb. towing capacity or find yourself going farther with its EPA-estimated 24 combined mpg.
Taking advantage of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, Highlander offers a smoother, confident ride. The strength of the framework also naturally enhances handling, while sound-damping and soundproofing materials have been used to help create a quiet cabin for every drive.
Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD
Enjoy an upgrade in all-wheel-drive performance. Available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel-Drive (TV-AWD) improves responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the power to the rear and then further distributing more power to the wheel that needs it.
Offering you more capability when the pavement ends, Highlander features Multi-Terrain Select on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) models. Choose between four modes (MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL) for improved traction. When activated, the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin—helping to maximize driving performance on different surfaces.
Available drive modes
Three distinct drive modes let you tailor Highlander's driving dynamics to match your mood. Sport Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency, and Normal Mode blends fuel economy with performance.

Pre-Collision System with Low-Light Pedestrian Detection
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help keep the road safe by detecting a vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist in certain situations. The latest system has enhanced low-light capabilities for pedestrian detection. By combining millimeter-wave radar with a camera capable of shape recognition, the system provides an audio/visual alert, warning you of a possible collision under certain circumstances. If you don't react, the system is designed for automatic braking support to help mitigate the potential for a collision.
Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Intended for highway use and similar to “constant speed” cruise control, available Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which is designed to adjust your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you that is driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera designed to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC is designed to automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes may be applied. When there's no longer a vehicle driving slower than your preset speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate to the preset speed and regular cruise control will resume.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
Using Road Edge Detection or by detecting visible lane markings, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) is designed to issue both an audible alert and visual warning on the MID screen if an inadvertent lane departure is detected at speeds above 32 mph. If the system determines that the driver is not taking corrective steering action, the Steering Assist function is designed to initiate and provide gentle corrective steering to help keep the vehicle in the lane.
Lane Tracing Assist
When the available Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is enabled and lane markers are detectable, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) uses the lines on the road and/or preceding vehicles to help keep the vehicle centered while also displaying the vehicle's position on the MID screen. The system is designed to help reduce driver strain and increase convenience, and may benefit drivers most during traffic jams—but can be turned off using the MID.
Automatic High Beams
The Automatic High Beams (AHB) feature is a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night—without distracting other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB relies on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggles between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow for earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.
Road Sign Assist
Road Sign Assist (RSA) is designed to help keep the road safe. Using a forward-facing intelligent camera, Road Sign Assist is designed to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, yield signs and Do Not Enter signs, and display them on the MID.
New 2020 Toyota Highlander - Safety
Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) is designed to warn you when a vehicle is detected approaching Highlander's blind spot on either side. When Highlander is placed in Reverse, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is designed to detect vehicles approaching from either side. If the system senses cross traffic, it is designed to warn you with side mirror indicators and a warning tone.
Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automated Braking (PA w/AB)
Working along with the available Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB), Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automated Braking (PA w/AB) is designed to detect moving or standing pedestrians behind the vehicle by using the rear camera. When someone is detected, the system uses alerts and brake control to help minimize damage or even help drivers avoid a possible collision. Simulation shown.
No cost maintenance plan and Roadside Assistance
Every new Toyota comes with ToyotaCare, a maintenance plan that covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25, 000 miles, whichever comes first, and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for 2 years, unlimited mileage.
