Mechanical Specifications

Toyota offers a half-dozen trim levels for the ’22 Highlander; in ascending order they are L, LE, XLE, XSE, Limited, and Platinum. The power source is a 3.5-liter V6 making 295 horsepower. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive, but the available all-wheel drive is more popular here in New England.

The EPA has estimated the FWD Highlander’s fuel economy at 21 mpg city and 29 mpg on the highway, while the AWD version is slightly lower at 20 city/27 highway. The maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds regardless of drivetrain or trim level.

Standard Features

The base L provides bang for the buck with tri-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights, a power driver’s seat, a windshield wiper de-icer, heated exterior mirrors with turn-signal indicators, five USB ports (one USB-A media port and four for charging), 18-inch wheels, and second- and third-row bench seats that allow the vehicle to seat eight. The LE’s steering wheel and shifter knob are wrapped in leather, and it gets fog light (LED), a power liftgate, and blind-spot warning indicators on the exterior mirrors. The XLE trades the second-row bench for a pair of captain’s chairs, changing the seating capacity to seven (the bench seat can be opted back in for those who want to fit eight people). Its other upgrades are power adjustability for the front passenger seat, heated front seats, roof rails, a moonroof, SofTex simulated leather upholstery, wireless smartphone charging, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.

The XSE gets an exterior style boost with blacked-out elements, dual exhaust pipes, a spoiler, and 20-inch alloy wheels. It’s also graced with a sport-tuned suspension and ambient interior lighting. Those who order this grade may opt for genuine leather seats, and an in-car PA system (the middle-row bench remains an option in place of the pair of captain’s chairs). The Limited’s standard equipment list is a blend of the XLE’s roster plus the XSE’s options (it too is eligible for the middle-row bench seat). Some other standard amenities on the Limited are a hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, driver’s seat position memory, enhanced LED fog lights, puddle lights, 20-inch chrome wheels, and a 120V power outlet. But the Platinum gets the full treatment with adaptive front lighting, a panoramic moonroof, a digital rearview mirror, precipitation-sensing windshield wipers, a head-up display, and heated second-row captain’s chairs, but there’s no option to swap in the middle-row bench seat.

Driver-Assist Technologies

The standard safety technology suite known as Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ equips every 2022 Highlander with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, and road sign detection. The Limited and Platinum receive parking sensors in both the front and rear. A bird’s-eye view monitor is optional on the Limited and included on the Platinum.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The default infotainment system (found on the two lowest trims) has an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth (for hands-free phone and audio streaming), SiriusXM satellite radio, and six speakers. The mid-grade trims, XLE and XSE, are eligible for navigation. The XSE is also eligible for the JBL audio system with 11 speakers that comes standard on the Limited and Platinum. A larger (12.3-inch) touchscreen is available on the Limited and standard on the Platinum.
