In this guise, the Highlander is rated at 20 mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway. The mid-level V6 displaces 3.5L and makes 270 hp, while the top of the line hybrid uses an electric motor in conjunction with a V6 to make 280 hp. The hybrid Highlander returns 27 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, extremely impressive numbers for a vehicle equipped with third-row seating. The Highlander comes standard in front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is an option for those who need it. There are four trim levels offered on the 2014 Toyota Highlander: LE, LE Plus, XLE and Limited, which offers buyers plenty of options.
