2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Overview

The Highlander Hybrid offers exceptional fuel economy, revolutionary technology, strong safety ratings, surprising performance, and Toyota's exceptional build quality. However, the price hike over the regular Highlander is considerable: The base price jumps by $10,000 with the addition of hybrid technology.
The hybrid is not available in a Sport trim, but Base and Limited versions are offered. Both are available with 2WD or AWD. The standard features list is longer for hybrids: 17-inch wheels, a special towing package, and Optitron gauges are included. Also standard are power windows and locks, keyless entry, and a six-speaker CD audio system. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system is optional for both models, and a touch-screen DVD navigation system can be added to the Limited.
The hybrid power plant has its foundation in a 3.3-liter DOHC V6, which generates 208 horsepower and 212 pound-feet of torque on its own. The 2WD models add two electric motors, and the AWD models include a third. The first electric motor starts the engine and recharges the battery pack. The second motor powers the front wheels, and a third is added to power the rear wheels with all-wheel drive. The addition of an electric power supply boosts horsepower by 60, bringing the total to 268. This is also a 50-hp improvement over the more powerful 3.3-liter V6 used by the Highlander. The hybrid speeds from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds.
The engine is mated to the electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT), in which regular toothed gears are replaced by a system of transistors. The hybrid's fuel economy is 32/27 mpg with 2WD and 31/27 with the 4WD system.
One important caveat: This is not a real 4x4, and Toyota recommends keeping it on the pavement. The gas engine cannot provide power to the rear wheels, so this is not traditional all-wheel drive.
