The 2016 Toyota Highlander can handle just about anything that gets thrown its way. It's been a longtime favorite in the midsize crossover segment and continues to expand its legacy each model year.

A brand-new feature has been added to the Platinum Package and all V6-equipped models now come standard with the Towing Package.

The first, a 2.7L four-cylinder engine, delivers 185 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque and is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. The second, a 3.5L V6, generates 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, while also working alongside a six-speed automatic transmission.
