What does " High-Teens " mean here?

While prices start in the high-teens for a base four-cylinder CPO Frontier, a V6-equipped truck provides significantly more grunt, with 261 horsepower, compared to the four-banger’s modest 152 hp.

Does it mean high two digit numbers like 91 or 99?

"High Teens" means a number like 18 or 19 presumably thousands of whatever the local currency the website you have linked to uses.

All the numbers between 13-19 can be described as "teens" informally and whilst there is no official agreement on the matter for me 13-14 would be in the low part of the range 15-17 would be "mid teens" and 18 and 19 "high teens".

Once you reach 20 then numbers are in the twenties.

Edit: 91 to 99 would be in the nineties.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.
