How Far a 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Can Travel on a Tank of Gas
Time to start planning your first family road trip in your new Highlander Hybrid. Actually, I think I am getting a little ahead of myself. We do not even have them available quite yet – but soon, though.
Highlander Hybrids will be released to the public starting next month and many people cannot wait. With the early success of 2020 Highlander gasoline sales (along with incredible sales numbers on new RAV4 Hybrids), it is expected that Hybrids will be a huge hit.
Expected 2020 Highlander Hybrid Sales
Toyota is predicting their fourth-generation midsize SUV, already the best-selling one in its class since 2016, will be quite popular in Hybrid form. In fact, they anticipate that 20% of all 2020 Highlander sales will come from Highlander Hybrids. This is remarkable.

Potential buyers can choose from LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum 2020 Highlander Hybrid models. The really cool part is that each of these trim levels is offered in both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. With this wide range of options, you can pick the best one based on if you need more traction or better fuel economy.
I remember way back when (no, I’m not going to say I walked 3 miles in 4 feet of snow to school) the only Hybrid choice out there was a Toyota Prius. And even that was a renegade for its time. Imagine combining gasoline with electric. What a difference 2 decades makes. Hybrids are the future my friends.
Sorry for the tangent folks. Back to gasoline talk.
Driving range for 2020 Highlander Hybrid
Spoiler alert: you may be able to drive up to 618 miles on a single tank of gasoline with a 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Of course, as most of us know, a vehicle’s driving range has a lot to do with many factors like driving style, temperature and the terrain you are driving on.
Here are some gas facts you may find important. Fuel tank size for Highlander Hybrid is 17.1 gallons. Gasoline-only fuel tanks hold 17.9 gallons.
Manufacturer-estimated miles per gallon varies based on what Highlander Hybrid you choose. All front-wheel drive Hybrids rate at 36 city / 35 highway / 36 combined. Hybrid LE AWD and XLE AWD trim levels deliver 35 city / 35 highway / 35 combined. Limited AWD and Platinum AWD Hybrid grades get you 35 city / 34 highway / 35 combined.
This driving range is significant, because families can now travel longer distances while making fewer stops for gasoline. Imagine traveling from Chicago to Buffalo on one tank. Or from Denver to Kansas City without stopping once for gas. Maybe Memphis to Houston – no fuel stops.
