2024 Toyota Grand Highlander ( Overview ). When the Toyota Highlander with its three-row seating isn’t quite big enough but the Sequoia is just too much, there’s now a third option to quench the thirst of SUV shoppers. The 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander is here, slotting between the aforemented machines to woo families with luxury, space, and power.
We’ll start with power, but be warned. While the Grand Highlander has debuted for the 2023 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota isn’t ready to share all the details on what’s under the hood. We can tell you there are three engine options, starting with a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder without any electrification. The company’s 2.5-liter hybrid four-pot is also available, and at the top of the pyramid is the Hybrid Max, delivering 362 horsepower to all four wheels through a standard-issue all-wheel-drive system.
Presumably, the Hybrid Max for the Grand Highlander is Toyota’s 2.4 turbo married with electric motors, similar to what’s offered in the Toyota Crown. That’s among the information not available yet, along with power ratings for the other systems. If you go with top engine, you’ll get a sizable SUV that can reach 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and tow 5,000 pounds. Or if you just need something with legroom and a lower price tag, front-wheel drive is available with the other two engines.
