Toyota cuts the cord on 2016 Camry technology

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Of course we're talking about the upcoming release of the 2016 models of our bestselling vehicles. It's no easy task to reinvent an automotive icon (especially year after year), but those designers and engineers over at Toyota are well-versed in how to handle class-leaders. After all, the Toyota lineup is full of them.

 

Take the 2016 Toyota Camry, for example. The Camry, as you probably already know, has been the bestselling sedan for decades, and we have no doubt that the latest redesign will help this nameplate maintain its…

2015 Toyota 4Runner puts truth back into the term "one-of-a-kind"

Automakers love to talk about every single one of their vehicles as if they offer something wholly unique to the market. You know, something that can't be found at just any car dealership. More often than not, it's simply an exaggeration of the truth, which is that most vehicles follow the same trends and evolve in a similar way.

 

However, we can think of at least one vehicle that fits the criteria of the last of a thinning breed, and that's the 2015 Toyota 4Runner. This SUV is really rugged, right down to its nearly extinct body-on-frame…

Toyota makes the Avalon greener, not leaner, with Hybrid model

You may associate hybrid powertrains with compact cars, but you'll be pleasantly surprised to hear that Toyota shares its environmentally-friendly wealth with larger lineup mates.

 

Take the 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, for instance. The Avalon is Toyota's flagship sedan, boasting a spacious, full-size cabin for ample passenger and cargo accommodations. The Hybrid part is what turns Toyota's recipe for the quintessential family car into a green-driving masterpiece.

 

Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is paired with an electric motor for upwards of 200 horsepower and 40 mpg combined. That high of a fuel rating for that large of…

As a full-size sedan, this upscale vehicle is very accommodating of heads, legs and elbows thanks to an airy cabin, and it's kind to your wallet, too, with above-average fuel economy.


It's the type of…

How Toyota can equip every RAV4 for the rain-covered road ahead

Toyota doesn't believe in making its customers pay for capability. You know how some automakers require you to climb the trim ladder in order to get more powerful, more sure-footed versions of its vehicles? Well, Toyota doesn't necessarily adhere to that philosophy, as shown by the 2015 Toyota RAV4.


While it's offered in three main trim levels, all of these five-passenger SUV's models can come equipped with all-wheel drive -- not to mention that a 6.1-inch touchscreen, rear view camera, Bluetooth connectivity and automatic headlights come standard. All RAV4 models are powered by a substantial four-cylinder…

Toyota raises the bar for seasoned hybrids with the well-rounded 2015 Prius

There's a lot to love about the 2015 Toyota Prius -- efficiency, maneuverability, reliability -- but you may not even know about some of its biggest attributes unless you've test driven one of the newest models.


Of course the Prius delivers exceptional fuel economy, and even at a glance it's apparent this hatchback has a unique yet timeless style, but what else is going on inside America's favorite hybrid other than .... well, hybrid stuff?


Firstly, the Prius is much more spacious than it looks, thanks to its versatile hatchback design. Designers also made the most of its svelte…

2015 Toyota Camry comes standard with an extra set of eyes on the road

The 2015 Toyota Camry is already known for its exceptional visibility. Add onto that a laundry list of driver assistance features that virtually put an extra set of eyes on the road, and you're looking at a midsize sedan that's as safe as it is practical, affordable, and let's just say it, good looking.


If you're just looking to invest in the base model Camry, you won't be disappointed. To supplement those eyes you don't have in the back of your head, the Camry comes standard with a rearview camera. Pad this family car…

Toyota Tweaks FT-1 Concept for Gran Turismo Video Game

It was back in January that we first got a look at Toyota's FT-1 Concept. This sporty unit immediately caught the attention of all who laid eyes on it for its futuristic design, that lead to speculation that this could be the successor to the legendary Supra.

Rumors continue to circulate as the concept once again reappeared, this time at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, CA. However, we happened to notice that this isn’t he exact same model that we saw back in detorit.

Changes that the Toyota brand made on the FT-1 Vision…

You Pick your Plumber Carefully, so Choose a Toyota Service Center

Toyota often answers questions about the brand's excellent service centers with a question of their own. Why use our Westminster, MD highly qualified technicians and parts? Let's just say, the alternative isn't pretty. Watch yet another funny Toyota commercial that explains the value of the brand's service centers.

Obviously a plumber who turns your sink into a flamethrower isn't doing the best job. Similarly, auto shops that aren't completely familiar with Toyota models and the parts we use for repairs can just end up making any issues you're having worse. With our professional…
