The 2020 Toyota Camry AWD Is Fine But The V6 Is The One You Want

The 2020 Toyota Camry lives up to the car’s reputation for providing simple satisfaction. Camrys are comfortable, easy to use, and frugal on fuel burn. Now, for the first time since the ’90s, you can get one with all-wheel drive.

Toyota Still Doesn’t Have The Guts To Bring Back The MR2

The last MR2 was built in 2007, when production stopped in the face of falling demand. Since then, we have heard rumors—but nothing solid—about a potential comeback. Toyota also took in $272 billion in revenue in its last fiscal year. I can only conclude based on these two facts that Toyota is simply too scared to…

The 2020 Toyota Highlander XSE Is For The Parents Who Want To Feel Less Dead Inside

Ah, children. A necessary evil if society is ever to advance. Between their constant demands, screams, messes and inane questions, their parents must soldier on (or else they go to jail). It’s a thankless existence I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but at least the 2021 Toyota Highlander XSE is here to make these parents…

You Bought The Wrong Toyota 4Runner

I bought a Toyota 4Runner recently. I haven’t written about it yet because it’s far from the most exciting thing in the world, but so far I like it a lot. It’s a 2002, a Limited, it has some really great equipment and drives like a nearly new car at 200,000 miles. (This is what happens when you get burned out on old…

This 1968 Toyota Corona For Sale In Arizona Is The Only Good Stanced Car

I’ll be honest. I don’t usually like the look of a totally slammed car. The wheel arches hanging over the tires just makes most of them look weird to me. This Toyota Corona that’s currently on Craigslist in Scottsdale, Arizona, though? It works. It really works.

Toyota’s Little Brother To The RAV4 Has A Funny Name

It’s not supposed to be shown until its reveal in Japan next month, but that leaky, leaky internet has dripped out pictures of Toyota’s new Daihatsu Rocky-based small SUV, the 2020 Toyota Raize. It’s based on Daihatsu’s version of Toyota’s modular platform (DNGA instead of TNGA and I bet you can figure out what the…

Is Anyone Actually Buying The New Toyota Supra?

In case you may not be aware, Toyota brought back the Supra. It’s a good and fast car, with mostly BMW parts under the skin. It still packs a turbocharged inline-six that sends power to the rear wheels and while it may not decimate all, it does have a pretty reasonable starting price. But is anyone actually buying…

A Look At Some Of The Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40′s Fascinating Hardware

Last week, I visited the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah, and found myself fascinated by machines that share quite a bit in common with old-school Jeeps that I regularly lust after.
