8. Toyota Highlander
2020 Sales: 47,890
Vs. 2019: –9.0%
The Toyota Highlander is all new for the 2020 model year and sales were trending upwards until March, which had a drop of almost 50 percent versus a year earlier, resulting in a 9 percent loss for the first quarter. The fourth generation of this popular crossover is built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture. Highlander gets fresh styling with a bold black grille, available premium projector headlights and a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces a plentiful 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque combined with a Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission — enough power to provide a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. The Highlander Hybrid is powered by the new-generation Toyota Hybrid System that combines a high-efficiency 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with two electric motors for a total output of 243 horsepower in a system that’s more compact and more efficient than before.
