Why Toyota is now getting a full-on diesel engine for the 2017 Toyota Highlander
By KJ JohnsonThe first batch of Toyota Highlander diesel engines will be available in 2021.
The new engines will make up for the aging Toyota diesel engines that are running on diesel powertrain, and Toyota will be getting the diesel power in a bigger package, with more power.
Toyota has been trying to bring its diesel engines back to the top of the market, and the company has been doing it with a hybrid and fuel cell engine, but the hybrid engines have been a slow sell.
Now, the company is going all-electric.
Toyota will make its new hybrid diesel engines in two new versions: the first version, dubbed the Highlander, will come with a 6.3-liter, twin-turbo V6, the next-gen Highlander 2 will be the same as the Highlander 1, but with a 3.5-liter inline six-cylinder, and finally, the new Highlander 3 will be a 2.0-liter turbo diesel.
The diesel engine has been a hot topic in the U.S. for some time, as there have been rumors of a diesel-electric hybrid crossover on the horizon.
The company’s first diesel engines have only been available in Japan since the late 1970s, and it’s unclear if Toyota plans to do the same in the United States.
Toyota says the new hybrid engines will have a claimed efficiency of up to 50 percent better than diesel engines.
The Highlander 2 and Highlander 3 versions will come in six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The hybrid engines are rated at 350 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque.
Toyota is also introducing a hybrid-electric version of its popular Highlander SUV.
The SUV, called the Highlander 4, will have an electric powertrain and will have both a six- and a four-cylinders, according to Toyota.
The crossover crossover will feature a diesel engine, and there is also a hybrid crossover that will use the same engine.
All the new hybrids will have the new 6.5L inline six, the same number as the current Highlander.
Toyota’s new hybrid trucks and SUVs will be based on the Highlander platform.
The 2018 Highlander will be powered by a 2L turbo diesel, while the 2019 Highlander will get a 3L turbo.
All three vehicles will come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a seven-speed auto will be standard.
The base Highlander 4 is rated at 300 horsepower and 325 pound-foot of torque, while a Highlander 4S is rated for 350 horsepower, 325 pound, and 400 pound-ft of torque (see our video for a look at the engine’s performance).
A Highlander 3 is rated with 250 horsepower and 300 pound-force of torque for the base model and 300 horsepower, 310 pound, 330 pound, 340 pound, 370 pound, 380 pound, 390 pound, 400 pound, 500 pound, or 550 pound-power.
The top of Toyota’s 2018 Highlander lineup is the Highlander 3.
The 2019 Highlander 3 comes standard with a six cylinder, with a 2-liter engine.
It comes with a five-speed automated transmission and a six speed manual transmission.
The third-generation Highlander 4 will come as a four cylinder, four-stroke diesel with an automatic transmission.
A Highlander 4 comes standard as a six.
It has a three-liter twin-cam engine, a six engine with a two-liter V6.
The two-cylis, one-liter and two-litre turbo diesel versions of the Highlander will all come in the Highlander 6, with an output of 400 horsepower and 500 pound-per-ton of torque in the six-stroke engine, 400 horsepower in the four-liter three-cylindered engine, 450 horsepower in a four engine with three cylinders, and 460 horsepower in all other engine configurations.
The six-liter four-cam version of the new crossover crossover crossover is rated to 400 horsepower, and its two- and four-litres four- and six-cam diesel versions will also come standard.
All of these new diesel engines, which Toyota says will be coming in 2019, are based on a 6-liter flat six, which is a new design for the Highlander.
The engine will feature direct injection with variable valve timing and variable valve compression, with the variable valve opening system in place.
Toyota claims the new diesel engine will deliver better fuel economy and fuel efficiency, and will use a much more efficient design for both the fuel system and the air intake, so it will not require any changes to the engine.
The all-wheel drive version of these hybrids is rated as offering up to a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy.
All new hybrid cars and SUV versions will be equipped with an electric motor.
The latest Toyota Highlander and Highlander 4 hybrid cars will be built on the new six- or four-wheel-drive platform, with all four wheels being powered by the diesel engine.
