What is the Toyota Highlander towing capacity?

What is the Toyota Highlander towing capacity?

To maximise the Toyota Highlander’s towing capacity, you need to option the 3.5-litre V6 engine and specify the optional towing package. At that point, you can use the Highlander to tow a braked trailer of 2270kg. Interestingly, even the Hybrid version of the Highlander is rated to tow 1600kg, something that not all manufacturers will allow in their hybrid models. The anomaly with the Highlander, though, is that the two highest-spec models trim-wise aren’t offered with a factory tow-bar option as this would interfere with the automatic tailgate triggering sensors that live just under the rear of the car…right where the tow-bar would be bolted.
