For 2023, the Toyota Highlander is getting a new turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

The three-row SUV is America's best-selling midsize crossover SUV.

The new engine replaces Toyota's long-serving 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6.

The 2.4T actually has less horsepower (265 hp) versus the 2022 Highlander's V6 (295 hp). However, torque is up 17% to 309 pound-feet from 263 lb-ft. That substantial increase suggests better drivability.

Right now, Toyota isn't saying much about the new engine's efficiency, other than to note that the combined fuel economy rating for the downsized powerplant remains at a middling 24 miles per gallon.
