2016 Toyota Highlander Tow Rating
If you were wondering whether or not the 2016 Toyota Highlander would be able to handle towing a boat, then we’ve got some good news for you! The Toyota Highlander is an excellent SUV to choose when looking for something that can handle a bit of towing. But how much can the 2016 Toyota Highlander tow? Well, this depends entirely on what trim and engine is under the hood, as well as some other things.
The 2016 Highlander LE (the base trim) comes with a towing capacity of 1,500 lb from its 2.7L I-4 engine. However, you can also equip your Highlander with a larger 3.5L V6 engine that raises the 2016 Toyota Highlander’s maximum tow rating to 5,000 lb.
Can you tow in a Hybrid Toyota Highlander?
Toyota has some of the best hybrid vehicles on the road today — and would you expect anything less from the people who produced the Prius? The Toyota Highlander Hybrid is especially unique, since not many other hybrid SUVs are on the road today — and even the ones that are can’t match what it offers. If you want a hybrid SUv that can also handle some towing, then you should consider the 2016 Highlander Hybrid with its 3,500 lb towing capacity.
2016 Toyota Highlander Cargo Capacity
The Toyota Highlander has a large interior that you can fill up with people, cargo or both! If you fold the seats down you’ll be able to store your cargo in 83.7 cu.ft. of space. Otherwise, you can also enjoy the expansive 145 cu.ft. of passenger volume that the Highlander offers. Of course, you can choose to fold certain seats down while keeping others up to customize your cargo holding capabilities.
