2024 Toyota Grand Highlander Hybrid: Bigger new SUV stuck in middle ground

The Grand Highlander is four inches longer than the standard Highlander, providing adult-sized space in the third row.

Cargo capacity is also improved, making it a great choice for families needing a big three-row SUV.

The Grand Highlander offers two hybrid options:

Hybrid Max: Powerful, with 362 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and a towing capacity of up to 5000 pounds.

Standard Hybrid: Less quick but more efficient, achieving an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined.

The XLE trim comes with the base hybrid powertrain (245 horses).

Meanwhile, the Grand Highlander provides a solid list of standard equipment. Buyers can choose based on their preferences for luxury and convenience.
