Toyota Hybrid System in the 2020 Highlander Hybrid combines a high-efficiency 2,5L DOHC 4 cylinder engine with 2 electric motors in a system that’s more compact, and more efficient than before. A variable cooling system (electric water pump, electric thermostat) and a fully variable oil pump further improve engine efficiency. Efficiency: 240 total system horsepower and an EPA estimated 34 combined MPG. Latter is a 17 percent improvement over the previous generation Highlander Hybrid’s 28 combined MPG. Yet, Highlander Hybrid still delivers the everyday acceleration, power and responsiveness that family buyers expect. In another Toyota Highlander first, the hybrid is now available in either 2WD or AWD, further expanding hybrid technology to a new group of buyers.

Highlander Hybrid delivers its exemplary fuel economy and performance without calling attention to its high tech powertrain operation. Quite the contrary, like all Toyota Hybrid vehicles, it simply goes about its business in a transparent way. For example, the new system optimizes the level of electric engine assistance and gas engine speed without the engine running at high revs. Motor speed is synchronized with vehicle speed, yielding effortless and quiet acceleration.
