EPA

The Hybrid returns as the most powerful top-tier Highlander, sporting a 280-hp gas-electric setup.
Road & Track

How many wheels you want driven will affect the Highlander's fuel economy, with the V6/FWD model at an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, the V6 AWD at 18 mpg city and 24 highway, and the four-cylinder/FWD model 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
Autoblog

The Highlander sets no fuel-economy records, but it's generally in line with other seven-passenger crossover SUVs.

The most frugal version of the Highlander, the four-cylinder model with front-wheel drive, doesn't fare much better than a Ford Flex with a V-6, though. The base Highlander's rated at 20 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined.

Highlander V-6s come with either front- or all-wheel drive. The front-drive model's pegged at 19/25 mpg, or 21 mpg, by the EPA. The all-wheel-drive version is rated at 18/24 mpg, or 20 mpg combined.

The most planet-conscious Highlander Hybrid fares much better, at least according to its EPA ratings of 27/28 mpg or 28 mpg combined. They're nearly identical to the prior Hybrid, though, and we've had trouble observing those figures in real-world driving.

Conclusion

Gas mileage is par for the course; the Hybrid's better numbers are iffy prospects in the real world.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
