For 2010, the Toyota Highlander Base keeps the frugal buyer in mind. Sporting a 2.7-liter inline four-cylinder (I4) engine and six-speed automatic as its powertrain, this front-wheel-drive (FWD), five-passenger, five-door crossover puts out 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity is capped at 3,500 pounds, but fuel efficiency is claimed to be 20/27 mpg for the I4.
The 2010 Highlander Base boasts a heady number of standard appearance, comfort, and convenience features, including cloth 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth front bucket seats, power accessories, cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning, alloy trim and dash accents, front and overhead consoles, and a single-CD player with six speakers. Additionally, like the entire lineup, the Highlander Base packs 95 cubic feet of cargo area. Options, though a tad limited, nonetheless include rear-seat climate control and upgraded audio with satellite radio. Safety items standard with the Highlander Base include four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, dual front side-mounted airbags, driver’s knee airbag, front and rear head airbags, active front headrests, and a post-collision safety system.

With its standard V6 engine and a few added standard amenities and available options, the 2010 Toyota Highlander Base V6 might be called the super-Base. Additional cabin and appearance goodies over the I4-equipped Base include a standard rear spoiler and roof rack, as well as standard third-row bench seating, allowing this five-door midsize crossover to carry seven passengers in relative comfort. The singular additional option available with the Base V6 is a power-operated sunroof. Safety features, of course, reflect the lower Base trim's.
The front-wheel-drive 2010 Highlander Base V6, as its name implies, packs a standard 3.5-liter variable-valve-timed V6 engine and five-speed auto-manual transmission with brake hill holder that’ll shout out 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. This means 5,000 pounds of towing power are available with the proper equipment, but fuel efficiency suffers at 18/24 mpg.

Those looking for some added go-power on wintry roads might consider the 2010 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD with full-time four-wheel-drive (4WD). Packing the same standard and optional goodies as its front-wheel-drive siblings, the Base V6 4WD has the added safety advantage of power to all four wheels all the time, as well as a descent control feature incorporated into the transmission.
Speaking of which, the standard five-speed auto-manual transmission, equipped with brake hill-holder as well as descent control, manages the also-standard 3.5-liter V6 in the 2010 Highlander Base V6 4WD, to put out 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. These ponies are good enough to tow 5,000 pounds, when properly equipped, at a tepid 17/23 mpg. The 4WD system, meanwhile, uses a center-mounted limited-slip differential in providing constant power to all four wheels.

Boasting a sport-tuned suspension, roof rails, and 19-inch wheels, the lower-midlevel, five-door, seven-passenger front-wheel-drive (FWD) 2010 Toyota Highlander Sport also ratchets up the cabin amenities over its Base siblings. Premium cloth upholstery, a trip computer, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and rearview camera system all come standard, while options include leather-trimmed upholstery, JBL premium audio with DVD navigation capability, rear-seat DVD entertainment, power moonroof, power liftgate, and remote keyless entry and ignition. Additional safety features over its Base sibling include daytime running lights and front fog/driving lights.
Standard with the 2010 Highlander Sport is a 3.5-liter variable-valve-timed (VVT) V6 engine and five-speed, auto-manual transmission (with brake hill-holder) that combines for 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Able to tow 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, the Highlander Sport is estimated to get 18/24 mpg.

Equipped with full-time four-wheel drive (4WD), the 2010 Toyota Highlander Sport 4WD carries, as well, all the standard and optional bells and whistles of its front-wheel-drive (FWD) sibling, including standard premium cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and rear-view camera system, as well as available moonroof, rear-seat DVD entertainment, DVD navigation, premium audio, and leather-trimmed upholstery.
As with the FWD Sport, the 2010 Highlander Sport 4WD packs the 270-hp, 248-lb-ft/torque 3.5-liter V6 engine that, along with the standard five-speed auto-manual transmission and variable valve timing, allows the V6 to pull 5,000 pounds of trailer to the tune of 17/23 mpg. The five-speed auto-manual has both a hill-holder and descent control feature built in, while a center-mounted, mechanical limited-slip differential ensures constant power to the 4WD system, definitely a plus in winter climates.

Notching the appearance goodies and creature comforts up to almost decadent levels, the front-wheel-drive (FWD), five-door 2010 Toyota Highlander SE crossover presents passengers with a power sunroof, auxiliary engine and transmission cooling, and up to 95 cubic feet of cargo area – unless the standard third-row bench seat is needed, instead. This is, of course, in addition to such extras as leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated mirrors, universal remote garage door opener, tri-zone climate control, and an MP3-compatible 6-CD changer. Perhaps because it’s delivered fully equipped for passenger pampering, the only optional item available with the SE trim is a Blizzard Metallic paint job – at no extra cost. Safety-wise, the SE adds standard daytime running lights, dusk-sensing headlights, and front fog/driving lights to the list.
Powering the 2010 Highlander SE is the lineup's standard 3.5-liter V6 that, when paired with the standard five-speed auto-manual transmission with the brake hill-holder feature, pounds down 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Though this pampered pretty has no trailer towing package offered as an option, it’s still capable of hauling up to 5,000 pounds, should the need arise. The EPA estimates the V6 at 18/24 mpg.

With the addition of a number of standard comfort and convenience features, the front-wheel-drive 2010 Toyota Highlander Limited approaches, but is still a step or two from, luxury status. This seven-passenger, five door midsize crossover is delivered with such standard extras above its lesser siblings as three-row seating, power-folding exterior mirrors, an upgraded driver’s seat, Toyota’s Smart Key system, whereby doors can be unlocked and the engine started via the key fob, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 6-CD changer. Options include a power liftgate, upgraded audio, rear-seat DVD entertainment, automatic rear-seat climate control, Bluetooth communications technology, and, of course, the power moonroof. Safety-wise, the Limited features, in addition to the standard safety items carried by the rest of the lineup, a standard remote anti-theft alarm system.
As with all the higher trim levels, the 2010 Highlander Limited packs a 3.5-liter, variable-valve-timed (VVT) V6 that puts out 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque when accompanied by the standard five-speed auto-manual transmission with brake hill holder. These horses will tow up to 5,000 pounds when hooked up to the optional Trailer Towing Package and are estimated to graze at 18/24 mpg.

As can be inferred from its name, full-time four-wheel-drive (4WD) traction distinguishes the 2010 Toyota Highlander SE 4WD from its front-wheel-drive sibling. This versatile five-door, seven-passenger crossover claims all the same standard goodies as its less traction-endowed brethren, including 95 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, leather upholstery, a power sunroof, tri-zone climate control, universal garage door opener, and 6-CD changer. A center limited-slip differential ensures constant 4WD performance, while all the safety bells and whistles common to the higher trims also keep the clan well protected on the road.
Some 270 hp are packed into the standard 2010 Highlander SE 4WD’s powerplant and are harnessed to the standard five-speed auto-manual transmission to pound out 248 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the hill-holder feature, this 4WD crossover’s five-speed transmission also comes with descent control for a bit of added stability and confidence. The EPA estimates a tepid 17/23 mpg.

With a center limited-slip differential, the 2010 Toyota Highlander Limited 4WD delivers power full-time to all four wheels. Otherwise equipped identically to its front-wheel-drive compatriot, this seven-passenger, five-door midsize crossover pampers passengers, yet retains the 95 cubic feet of cargo space, lofty stance, and just plain value by which its breed is known.
Reflecting the rest of the higher trim levels, Toyota’s 2010 Highlander Limited 4WD is equipped with a standard 270-hp, 248-lb-ft/torque 3.5-liter V6 engine and five-speed auto-manual transmission featuring decent control and brake hill-holder. This potent V6 is good to tow 5,000 pounds, when properly equipped, and, though featuring variable valve timing, is estimated to get a somewhat lackluster 17/23 mpg in the 4WD configuration.
