2023 Toyota Highlander Updates Include New Turbo Engine

Toyota Highlander | Dixon, IL

For the 2023 model year, the popular Highlander arrives with several attractive upgrades designed to keep it at the top of the midsize SUV segment. The Toyota Highlander updates include a new turbocharged engine, larger multimedia screens, and other improved features that should appeal to small and large families alike.

New turbocharged, environmentally friendly engine

For 2023, the Highlander’s previous 3.5-liter V6 has been replaced by a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 46 lb-ft of extra torque. That leads to more thrust and responsiveness, making the Highlander better at towing heavy loads or hauling its eight potential occupants. It’s also just as efficient as the previous engine and much more environmentally friendly, as it produces less than half the amount of NOx and NMOG — and fewer CO2 emissions as well.

More display area than ever before

The 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited and Platinum now feature two standard 12.3-inch displays, one serving as the main infotainment touch screen and the other as a full digital instrument cluster. The latter is offered at the XLE and XSE trim levels as well and give the Highlander more screen space than ever before.

The 2023 Toyota Highlander updates don’t stop there. Call or visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to learn more about America’s bestselling midsize SUV and reserve your own!
