The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is now on display at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. It marks the world debut of the all-new third-generation gas-electric mid-size hybrid SUV.

With three-row seating for seven, an array of standard features, a host of available in-cabin technologies, and increased cargo capacity, the new Highlander Hybrid will also feature a Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain system for enhanced mileage and fewer emissions.

The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid model’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system pairs the 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator for additional power and fuel efficiency.

All Highlander Hybrid models will be equipped with electronic on-demand all-wheel-drive with intelligence (AWD-i). New technologies also include enhancements in suspension performance, and optimized electric power steering. Highlander will have a MacPherson strut front suspension, double-wishbone rear suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and 19-inch Chromtec alloy wheels.

A 4.2-inch color LCD Multi-Information Display will provide an array of driver information including an Eco driving indicator and energy monitor to help maximize hybrid efficiency.

The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will be available in the Hybrid Limited and new Hybrid Limited Platinum package at an MSRP of $47,300 and $49,790 respectively.
