Today I am answering one of my “ToyotaJeff Reviews” Instagram page viewer questions. This one may benefit many of you waiting for a 2023 Highlander.
From Sean P: “Hey Jeff! Any word on when the ’23 Highlander will be out?”
Sure, Sean I have you covered. And thanks for following my content (you can follow my Instagram page here if you would like).
2023 Toyota Highlander Release Date
If you have been looking out for word on either 2023 Highlander or 2023 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, I have some information for you.
Plan for October time frame as a pretty solid estimate for 2023 Highlander release date. If the production gods work in our favor, we should start seeing them arriving at Toyota dealerships in that range.
Of course, with the ongoing vehicle shortage affecting just about all manufacturers and regions, it is challenging to specifically guess inventory levels and supplies of Highlander or Highlander Hybrid.
2023 Highlander Changes
Toyota Audio Multimedia system is new for 2023 Toyota Highlander. Big multimedia touch screens. Fast command times. Wireless Apple CarPlay. Wireless Android Auto. Much more.
Screen sizes will be up to 12.3 inches in size, as will the more modern multi-information display screens behind the steering wheel.

Oh, and there is that small, tiny engine change coming. Yes, Highlander 2023 is abandoning its 3.5-liter engine in favor of a turbocharged one.
All Toyota Highlander gasoline SUVs for 2023 come with a standard 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine. This produces 265 horsepower and 309 lb.-ft. torque. “Higher-torque, high efficiency” as Toyota says.
More 2023 Highlander Updates
- Wireless charging pad moves from inside the center console to the smart shelf storage under the multimedia screen.
- Cypress green color added to the lineup.
- Power folding mirrors now standard on Highlander Limited and Platinum (for both Highlander gasoline and Highlander Hybrid)
