2021 Toyota Highlander Trims & Specs

The 2021 Toyota Highlander is offered in six trim levels, all available in FWD or AWD. The base L and sporty XSE are only available with a 3.5-liter V6 producing 295 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque. It sends the power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum models are also available with a hybrid powertrain. It combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors for a combined power output of 243 hp, using a CVT to distribute power.

All models come as standard with tri-zone climate control and a touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. Base models get cloth seats, while high-end models come with a leather interior and heated seats. This year, Toyota added the new XSE trim to the range. It comes with model-specific exterior and interior adornments, as well as a sportier suspension setup. All models get Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ as standard comprising pre-collision with pedestrian detection and intersection support, road sign assist, full-speed radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, and automatic high beams.
