When it comes to SUVs, capability is extremely important which is why Toyota has equipped V6 versions of the 2016 Toyota Highlander in Springfield with a standard towing package. Complete with a 150-amp alternator, fan coupling, supplemental transmission oil cooler and heavy-duty radiator with engine oil cooler, the package allows all V6 models to tow up to 5,000 pounds. With this setup, drivers can trailer recreational vehicles and boats during weekend getaways to the lake or beach. Aside from the inclusion of the towing package, the SUV also comes available with Driver Easy Speak, a system that uses a microphone to carry a driver's voice to the back of the vehicle through the speakers. It's a great feature for drivers with families, giving them the ability to speak to their children in the rear seat with just the push of a button.

All Highlander models, aside from the LE, receive a 3.5L V6 engine. Delivering 270 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, the displacement is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and comes with manual sequential shifting.
