The Highlander Hybrid gets a Nightshade edition in 2024

•    2024 Toyota Highlander: here are the changes, and prices for the new year.

Details for the 2024 Toyota Highlander have been released, with each trim getting a few more bits of equipment as standard for the coming year, and the Highlander Hybrid getting its own Nightshade Edition.

Explains Toyota Canada VP Cyril Dimitris, “we’ve enhanced several popular grades with additional features.” The range includes 10 models in all (five non-hybrid, five hybrid), with two powertrains possible.

Engines of the 2024 Toyota Highlander

Once again, the Highlander relies on a 2.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine good for 265 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque. This turbo engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, enabling it to tow up to 2268 kg (5000 lb).

The LE and XLE versions are equipped with a dynamically torque-controlled all-wheel-drive system, while the XSE, Limited and Platinum versions feature a more efficient dynamically torque-modulated all-wheel-drive system, with drive mode selector and uncoupling rear driveshaft.

The Highlander Hybrid is equipped with Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive system, comprising a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, two electric motor-generators and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT). This combination produces a total output of 243 hp and offers a fuel efficiency of just 6.7L/100 km (combined), as well as a towing capacity of 1,588 kg (3,500 lb).

Hybrid models feature an electronically controlled all-wheel drive system that uses a separate rear electric motor to drive the rear axle as required.
