How Much Can the Toyota Highlander Tow?

The 2019 Toyota Highlander towing capacity is proof that you don’t have to choose a truck even if you need to move heavy cargo and equipment! With this family-friendly SUV, you’ll have a 5,000 pound maximum towing capacity, more than enough power to haul a boat or a small trailer around Johns Creek or Roswell.

Toyota Highlander Towing Capacity by Powertrain

The 2019 Toyota Highlander is available with two different engines:

  • Highlander with 2.7L Inline-4 Engine – 1,500 pound maximum towing capacity
  • Highlander with 3.5L V6 – 5,000 pound maximum towing capacity
  • Highlander Hybrid with 3.5L V6 and Electric Motor – 3,500 pound maximum towing capacity

Get More Done with the Highlander Performance Features

When it’s time to tow, the available Highlander engines aren’t the only features that give this SUV an edge.

  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Dynamic Torque-Control: This available feature redistributes torque from front to rear, and back again, in order to maximize your traction at all times. When one wheel starts to lose its grip, or when you’re accelerating, Dynamic Torque-Control AWD goes to work to move you forward with confidence.
  • Eight-speed Automatic Transmission: The Toyota Highlander comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but it can also be equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission to improve towing performance and fuel economy. The Highlander Hybrid features a Continuously Variable Transmission.

Interior Cargo Storage in the Toyota Highlander

Whether you’re running errands with a cabin full of passengers or moving to a new place on the other side of Buford, you won’t necessarily have to attach a trailer to carry tons of cargo with your Highlander. You’ll enjoy 13.8 cubic feet of space with all seats in their upright positions, and up to 83.7 cubic feet when both rear rows have been laid flat. 60/40 split 2nd- and 3rd-row seats are standard.
