New for the 2009 Toyota Highlander is a 2.7L four-cylinder engine that spits out 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque paired to a six-speed automatic on the base two-wheel drive trim, which increases performance and fuel economy on the 7-passenger crossover SUV. For the rest of the trims, a 3.5L V6 engine stomps out 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, and a five-speed automatic transmission is standard. While front-wheel drive is also standard, all-wheel drive is optional on all but the base four-cylinder trim. With the V6 engine, the front-wheel drive Highlander's fuel mileage is 18 mpg city/24 mpg hwy and 20 mpg combined, while the AWD V6 version chops that down by 1 mpg across the board. Toyota Highlander standard safety equipment includes stability control, antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, three-row side curtain airbags and a driver-side knee airbag. In addition, hill-start assist helps to keep it from rolling backward on uphill starts, and downhill assist on the all-wheel drive facilitate controlled descents. A properly equipped V6-powered Highlander can tow 5,000 pounds.
The 2009 Toyota Highlander offers seating for seven and is surprisingly versatile, with properly equipped versions able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. The base model is a strong value, while the Sport and Limited can be loaded to the gills with luxury features. Also, the Highlander offers a very robust list of standard safety features, including a total of seven air bags.
Following a major redesign in 2008, the 2009 Highlander sees few changes. A new base-level 2-wheel-drive 4-cylinder model joins the lineup, featuring a 187-horsepower 2.7-liter engine that gets an estimated 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway and is rated as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle by the EPA. Two-row seating is standard in the base model, with third-row seating and an upgraded stereo optional.
Toyota's 2009 Highlander is available in base, Sport and Limited models. A 2.7L 187-horsepower 4-cylinder is now standard on the base model, but a 3.5L V6 engine making 270 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque is optional on the base model and standard on the Sport and Limited. There's also a Highlander Hybrid model, offered in base or Limited trims, that pairs a 3.3L V6 engine with an electric motor and generator system to make 270 horsepower together. The Hybrid now has an EV mode, for driving short distances at low speed on electric power only, and there's also an ECON mode that limits acceleration to conserve energy. The new 4-cylinder model is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, while V6 versions get a 5-speed automatic. The base model comes only in 2-wheel drive when equipped with the 4-cylinder, while V6 models are available in either 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive. The V6 can be equipped to tow 5,000 pounds, while the 4-cylinder can pull 3,500.
