The Highlander is similar in size and configuration, but the Explorer offers greater front head room, front hip room, front shoulder room, rear head room, rear leg room and rear shoulder room. In addition, the Toyota Highlander lacks in cargo capacity with all the seats in place, turn-by-turn navigation, the availability of power seats, the availability of premium leather upholstery and more when compared to the Explorer.

2017 Ford Explorer vs. Toyota Highlander: Performance Facts

At the base trim level, the Highlander is underpowered by a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine that only allows it to tow 1,500 pounds. The Explorer features a beefy V6 engine that gets the same MPG on the highway as the Highlander's 4-cylinder and allows for up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. Both vehicles feature front-wheel drive standard with all-wheel drive available as an option and the convenience of automatic transmissions. The Highlander offers a V6 at upper trim levels but it can't compete with the twin turbo V6 found in the higher trim levels of the Explorer.
