2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Ushers in New Era

Toyota did something a bit unusual to debut the 12th generation of one of its most popular models. The 2019 Toyota Corolla arrived first as a hatchback. And while this is not the first subcompact hatchback from Toyota, it is the first to carry the name Corolla Hatchback here in North America – and it’s a good one.


2018 Toyota RAV4 Ready for ‘Adventure’

Toyota is getting ready to roll out the next-generation RAV4 compact utility vehicle later this fall, a vehicle we introduced to you earlier this year. So it came as a surprise when the 2018 RAV4 Adventure model rolled into our test driveway just barely ahead of the 2019 arrival.


2019 Toyota Avalon Leading a New Revolution for Cars

Toyota has just launched the new flagship of its North American fleet in the form of the fifth-generation Avalon mid-premium sedan. Designers and engineers have addressed nearly every aspect for the 2019 model year, but is it enough, especially given these troubled times for sedans?


2018 Toyota C-HR Is Distinctively Different

Toyota parked its national headquarters in our backyard a couple of years ago, and in recent weeks they have parked some new vehicles in our test driveway out front. We have written about a few Lexus products already, and now it is Toyota’s turn beginning with the new, distinctively different C-HR.



2018 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Is All Hat AND A Ranch

Twenty years ago, Toyota announced its large pickup would be named Tundra. It launched a year later and over the past couple decades it has seen quite a few changes including some nice updates that arrived on our recent 2018 Tundra 1794 review model.


2018 Toyota Camry Is Bringing Driving Back

About a year ago, Toyota rolled out a new Camry midsize sedan in front of journalists gathered for the big auto show in Detroit. I, like many of my colleagues I am sure, thought, “Here we go again, another Camry, probably as boring as the ones before it.” Boy, was I wrong.


2018 Toyota Corolla Makes Safety a Priority

The Toyota Corolla is one of the best-selling cars in the world. This model year marks its 52nd year of production and it is currently on its 11th platform. We reviewed the 50th Anniversary Edition a year ago and for 2018 there are some minor upgrades that make Corolla safer than ever before.



2017 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium Takes You Places…And Beyond

Recently I mentioned that Toyota offers the consumer a choice when shopping the midsize utility vehicle segment – Highlander and 4Runner. Now in its fifth generation, 4Runner has been a popular sport ute for more than 30 years here and our 2017 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road tester proves the model is still going strong.


2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Is Toyota’s Best Family Utility Vehicle Yet

Toyota rolled out the third-generation Highlander utility vehicle in gas and hybrid form a few years back and the automaker – and consumers – couldn’t be happier. It appears Toyota actually listened as they ironed out all the little kinks and quips with the previous generation model and they proved just that with our recent 2017 Highlander Hybrid tester.



2017 Toyota Corolla Shows Model Looking Nifty at Fifty

In the fall of 1966, Toyota began building what would become the world’s best-selling nameplate – Corolla. Now forty-three million cars later, the automaker brings us its 50th Anniversary Special Edition model of the 2017 Toyota Corolla.


2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Finally!

What do you get when you drop a Toyota RAV4 body on a Prius powertrain? The RAV4 Hybrid. And surprisingly, even though both RAV4 and Prius have been on the market for some time, it was not until this past year Toyota put the two together to form the newest gas/electric hybrid vehicle in its showroom.


2016 Scion iM Hatchback: The Swan Song of a Brand

No sooner does Scion release a couple of all new vehicles than its parent company Toyota Motor Sales announces the division will be mothballed. Fortunately it appears the Scion vehicles will be rolled back into the Toyota production lineup as they are all very worthy including the newest hatchback, the Scion iM.


2016 Toyota Tacoma: All New and Best Yet

Toyota has been making trucks for fifty years and twenty years ago it introduced the Tacoma pickup. For the past ten years, Toyota has dominated the midsize truck segment and, for 2016, Tacoma is all new. Designers and engineers have rebuilt Tacoma from the ground up to make this model the best yet.


2016 Toyota Land Cruiser: A Luxurious Living Legend

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a living legend, and for 2016 that legend continues.

2015 Toyota Sienna Minivan: Transportation for the Ages

A minivan is a minivan is a minivan. It is not a sport utility vehicle, it is not an activity wagon and it does not have swagger. But as I recently reminded myself during our week with the Toyota Sienna, the minivan is one of the most useful vehicles on the road today.


2015 Toyota Tundra 1794 Rides High in the Saddle

I finally got to spend some quality time in the ranch version of the 2015 Toyota Tundra 1794 full-size pickup. That name was chosen by Toyota to honor the year the ranch was founded where the truck manufacturing plant now sits in San Antonio, Texas. The 1794 edition is positioned squarely against Ford’s King Ranch models and features similar styling.


2015 Toyota Camry Even More of a Good Thing

The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling car in America for 12 years and for the 2015 Toyota Camry model year, Toyota decided it needed to up its game with the midsize sedan. Engineers and designers set out to make the best handling and most comfortable Camry yet while also updating styling and addressing the growing sport sedan segment.


100,000 Miles of Memories in My Prius

My Toyota Prius and I hit a major milestone last night-100,000 miles! I have been counting down excitedly for months, and it hit me this morning why this means so much to me. It’s not about the mileage, but about the memories and amazing life changes that so many of those miles mean.
