I have a 2018 Highlander Hybrid with the towing package. I want to pull a trailer that is 4,500 lbs but by car only has a 3,500lb tow rating.

Asked by Holly Jan 22, 2020 at 04:06 PM about the 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE AWD

Question type: General

As said above I have a 2018 highlander hybrid. It is a v6 XLE AWD with a stock
tow hitch.  I thought I could tow 5,000 lbs like the standard highlander but
when looking into it they say only 3,500lbs.  I want to purchase a trailer that is
4,500lbs and wondering if anyone as done that with no repercussions? Can
someone give me a good reason so I can understand why the weight pulling
delta exists?
