What’s Under the Hood?
Keep in mind that when we say “family friendly,” we don’t mean boring. The 2015 Toyota Highlander near Lima, OH is anything but, and three athletic powertrains provide plenty of excitement. Base Highlander models are powered by a 185-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder platform that is paired with a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Four-cylinder Highlander models offer exceptional efficiency ratings as well, achieving 25 mpg on the highway. While that may be enough power for some, it isn’t for everyone and that is where the 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 comes in, which delivers similar fuel economy numbers with additional power.

Equipped with a Hybrid Synergy Drive system that nets 280 horsepower it is definitely fun to drive while also managing an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined.
