Nothing Can Stop the Midsize Sedan Segment From Collapsing, Not Even a New Camry and Accord

“Can we stop the shrinking of the segment?” American Honda boss Jeff Conrad said when launching the 10th-gen Accord. “We think we can at least slow it down.” “When you get into next year and you look at 2018,” Toyota’s Jack Hollis said two years ago when discussing the arrival of an all-new Camry, “I […] The post Nothing Can Stop the Midsize Sedan Segment From Collapsing, Not Even a New Camry and Accord appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Goal Unlocked: Toyota’s non-Prius Delivers the MPGs

It’s Mileage Monday, apparently. In unveiling the upcoming Corolla Hybrid late last year, Toyota predicted the normal-looking alternative to its long-running Prius would deliver a combined rating of 50 mpg, once the EPA got around to testing it. Not the hardest bar to clear, given that the 2020 Corolla Hybrid uses the same 121-horsepower hybrid […] The post Goal Unlocked: Toyota’s non-Prius Delivers the MPGs appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota 86 British Green Limited: Another Japan-only Special Edition

Despite Toyota claiming that the 86 will stick around for a while, everything points to the car being on its last legs. Fortunately, this is usually the point where a manufacturer starts rolling out special editions to retake the public’s interest. Normally, these cars aren’t much to write home about, but every so often one […] The post Toyota 86 British Green Limited: Another Japan-only Special Edition appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck

The Toyota Hilux pickup truck first hit the streets in 1968, shoving aside flimsier trucks based on the Corona and Crown within a few years. While the Hilux (or “Hylux”) name got a bit of marketing use by Toyota in North America, this truck was known here as, simply, the Truck.

Toyota Supra TRD Concept Debuts On Japanese Parts Website

Considering the Toyota Supra was revealed to the world just a few weeks ago, it feels slightly premature for the manufacturer to start releasing special editions of the model. However, we’ve heard it’s important to strike while the iron is hot in business and the Supra is certainly operating well above room temperature.

Beyond Adventure: Toyota’s RAV4 – Yes, the RAV4 – Gets the TRD Treatment

After last year’s Camry and Avalon surprise, it should come as no shock that Toyota’s keen to expand TRD branding beyond its body-on-frame trucks and SUVs. Frankly, the automaker ran out of BOF vehicles to tune for the trail. Enter the RAV4, redesigned for 2019 and still no one’s idea of a hardcore off-roader.

Thanks to Toyota’s glacier-like design cycle, the full-sized Sequoia SUV looks largely the same as it did when it rolled off the ark in 2008.
