Customers often choose the Toyota Highlander since it was an early three-row crossover and an industry trailblazer. Even though the 2023 model is shorter and has less interior space than the longer and roomier Honda

Pilot and Kia Telluride, it gets more torque from a new turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine than its

predecessor and a few major rivals. The 2022 Highlander had 295 horsepower, which isn't bad, but the 311

pound-feet of torque that the turbocharger produces is more than enough to silence the nagging old V6.

Improved interior quality and driving refinement are only a few of the benefits of the newest infotainment system, which the new crossover receives in addition to a substantial boost over the 2022 model. The

Highlander's relatively expensive price, cramped rear-seat legroom, and dubious load space with all seats in place are hard to ignore, though.
