Which SUV is right for your family: Highlander or Passport?

Both of these SUVs do have some things in common. They are both about the same length, they both offer all-wheel drive, and they have nearly the same starting MSRP, although the Highlander is still more affordable if you were curious. That is where the similarities end though.

For starters, despite the Passport being only 2 inches shorter than the Highlander, it can only seat a maximum of five people regardless of your configuration. The Highlander seats 7 to 8 people depending on how you configure it. You can decide if you want a three-person bench seat in the second row or second-row captain’s chairs.

Under the hood, the Highlander has two engine options, and the available V6, which comes standard on most of the lineup, cranks out up to 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. If that wasn’t impressive enough, even with this power, the Toyota Highlander manages to get better efficiency both on the highway and in the city. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Toyota Highlander can also easily tow more. In fact, all V6 models can tow up to 5,000 pounds standard.
