2021 Toyota Highlander towing a boat

Drivers across the country recognize the 2021 Toyota Highlander for its exceptional capability and ability to handle heavy loads without breaking a sweat, but how about the Toyota Highlander Hybrid towing capacity? You’d be forgiven for assuming such an efficiency-focused vehicle isn’t able to compete when it comes to capability, but the Hybrid towing capacity actually comes in strong.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Performance

The Highlander Hybrid’s next-generation powertrain means Pooler drivers no longer need to decide between power and efficiency. It combines a 2.5L 24-Valve D-4S Injection Atkinson Cycle engine with three permanent magnet synchronous motors to deliver:

  • Up to 243 combined horsepower
  • Up to 174 lb-ft of torque

That power is refined through an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) with sequential shift mode to deliver:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 35 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Towing

Every 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a Electronic On-Demand AWD system standard to ensure precision performance whether you’re cruising on the highway heading into Bluffton or tackling unpaved roads. Having AWD standard also means you’ll enjoy:

  • Up to 3,500 lbs. of towing.

A 3,500-pound towing capacity will handle the majority of towing needs for the average Bluffton driver. If you do need a slightly higher tow rating, you can always look to the standard Toyota Highlander for up to 5,000 lbs. of towing.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Capacity

The Toyota Highlander Hybrid doesn’t often need to rely on towing strength thanks to its exceptionally spacious cabin. As well as the ability to take up to 8 occupants, it provides:

  • Up to 16.0 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 3rd row.
  • Up to 48.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row.
  • Up to 84.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 1st row.

Whether you need to haul a trailer across Hilton Head or load in everything from DIY supplies to luggage for a family vacation, the Highlander Hybrid can oblige.
