2019 Toyota HIghlander Performance
An available 3.5 liter V6 Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 24-valve direct injection engine paired with an available direct-shift-8AT, 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) and sequential shift mode provides drivers with an efficient blend of power and control. This combination helps provide quick acceleration and improved miles per gallon when travelling at the desired speed. The optimized fuel efficiency of the 2019 Highlander has helped it earn an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (ULEV-II) rating as well as enhancing EPA miles per gallon estimates. An available feature on V6 gas-powered Highlanders is a Stop and Start Engine System. In order to help save fuel, this technology senses when the vehicle is stopped for a stoplight and shuts off the engine. When the brake pedal is released, the engine automatically restarts to allow for continued travel. An available Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system allows drivers to maintain better control by distributing engine power from the front to the rear while managing the braking system from side to side.
