2023 Toyota Highlander Gets A Revamp With A New Turbocharged Engine

May 25th, 2022 by

You can always expect the Clermont Toyota Highlander to get an elegant upgrade every year for its revamp. However, the All-new 2023 Toyota Highlander keeps its competition on their toes or their wheels. This midsize SUV hasn’t been number one in retail for six years running “just because”. This Clermont Toyota delivers nothing but excellence. So, what can you look forward to when you trade in your old wheels for a brand-new ride with the 2023 Toyota Highlander? Toyota of Clermont answers. 

New engine, New Efficient Speed

The 2023 Highlander gas models are improving in every category, especially a higher-torque, efficient turbocharged engine with a 265-horsepower, 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which uses balance shafts for super-smooth performance, and delivers 309 lb-ft of torque. Talk about evolution: the previous 3.5-liter V6 engine was 263 lb-ft. Toyota knew what they were doing by giving a serious upgrade on your daily commute. It doesn’t stop there. In his all-new 2023 Clermont Toyota Highlander, you get the option of FWD or two different available AWD systems. 

And More Efficiency

You’ll be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds and use trailer sways control, including vehicle stability control, to help control unwanted trailed movement in this Clermont Toyota. But, its efficiency doesn’t stop there. Your 2023 Toyota Highlander will help reduce fuel consumption by incorporating a stop and start engine system that shuts the engine off when your Clermont Toyota is coming to a complete stop and restarts as soon as you let go of the brake pedal. 

Let’s Talk About Technology

As expected, you can look forward to a nice big touchscreen to help you navigate to every destination with a 12.3 Multi-information Display touchscreen standard on the Limited and Platinum grades. But, it doesn’t stop there. You’ll also get a 12.3” Full digital instrument cluster screen to match four different visual modes for a personalized touch: Casual, Smart, challenging, and can’t forget sporty mode. 

Backing out of tight spaces got easier, with power-folding exterior mirrors standard for the Limited and Platinum grades. In addition, the Qi-compatible charger, which lets you place your device on it and its chargers without having to connect a charging cord, has been moved to the instrument panel shelf for more convenience. In previous models, the hands-free power liftgate was only offered on the Limited and Platinum. For the 2023 Toyota Highlander, the XLE and XSE grades are joining them. 

The Design Gets an Upgrade

You can look forward to new colors on this Clermont Toyota favorite upgrade. The 2023 Highlander adds an elegant new available Cypress exterior color and Harvest Beige, and the Glazed Caramel interiors feature black as an accent color instead of the previous Noble brown. 

The Hybrid 2023 Toyota Highlander is your new eco-friendly ride.

You’ll get a 36 combined MPG manufacturer estimated rating, a 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine with two electric motor-generators, and a 243 total system horsepower. The Highlander Hybrid also offers EV mode, which allows you to drive on electric-only for low speeds for short distances.
