Toyota of Goldsboro Reviews 2017 Highlander Performance

November 8th, 2017 by

Many people ask if an affordable three-row SUV offers true performance. The answer is in the 2017 Highlander lineup. There are three ways to enjoy the Highlander, and all of them promise to keep you moving swiftly. Let’s take a look at these powertrains.

Fuel-Saving Four
The LE edition comes with a fuel-saving four-cylinder engine. Capable of moving this big SUV, it won’t let you down in busy traffic. Consumers like this model because it saves money at purchase and at the pump.

V6 Update
The Highlander has a new V6 engine. Engineers have managed to increase both horsepower and torque. The new ratings are 295 horsepower and 263 lb.-ft. A new eight-speed automatic transmission improves shifting. That’s why, despite the fact that the engine cranks out more power, the fuel economy has also improved. A stop and start system is on board to reduce fuel use in the city. Available on the LE, the engine is standard on the five upper trims, including the all-new SE model at this Toyota dealer Goldsboro NCGet a quote.

Hybrid
The Highlander Hybrid comes in two trims. It utilizes the updated V6 engine as part of its Hybrid Synergy Drive. It boosts performance to 306 horsepower by adding a high-torque electric drive motor-generator. This family hauler earns 30 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. That’s 29 mpg combined. An independent electric motor runs the rear wheels as part of the hybrid’s special all-wheel drivetrain.
