The New Land Cruiser 300 Might Be A Forbidden Fruit In The U.S., But Its Upscale Lexus Version Is Not!
It took a lot of us by surprise when Land Cruiser decided not to bring the new Land Cruiser 300 to the U.S. The beast wasn’t moving in numbers that would justify it being alive here. However, Toyota Group has decided to replace it with the new Lexus LX600 instead. The company released a teaser that mentioned that the upscale Land Cruiser will debut on October 13 at 12:30 p.m ET. And, for what it’s worth, it is confirmed for the U.S. market as well.
Toyota Gives Us A Clear Glimpse Of What The 2022 Tundra Will Look Like
The images of the 2022 Tundra had leaked online a few days back. So, Toyota decided to publish one image (yeah, just one!). This is enough to satisfy the itch for now, but we’ll need more soon. Do you hear, Toyota? Anyway, the pic of the 2022 Toyota Tundra is in the TRD Pro form. It comes with a major design change after a long time.
Toyota’s Latest Teaser Includes Evidence That the Tundra Will Be a hybrid
Toyota continues teasing the new Tundra and this time we may have some hints about the engine options. We recently saw the debut of the latest Toyota Land Cruiser 300-Series, which gives us a good idea of what engines we can expect to find in the new Tundra, as the two have shared a lot of their powertrains in the past. We know that the full-size pick-up truck will make good use of Toyota’s new-generation iForce engines, but what exactly does this mean for the engine options?
Toyota Is Expanding its GR Sub-Brand in the Best Way
Gazoo Racing, Toyota performance sub-brand responsible for cars like the Toyota GR Supra, GR Yaris, and the new GR 86 will be laying its hands on more cars in the future. And, by cars, I mean actual cars – not SUVs or crossovers in a move that will position Toyota outside of the norm of performance-oriented SUVs that have become just as common as normal SUVs.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra Could Make the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 Shiver With Fear
Toyota has managed to keep most of the 2022 Tundra close to home, with next to no information leaking out thus far. We do know that it’ll feature a familiar look, better safety equipment, and it’s supposed to be a “best in class, world beater” truck. Expected to be revealed sometime later in 2021, we have a lot of questions, but we now know there’s one thing we don’t have to worry about: Power. And that’s because the new Tundra will have a whole lot of it.
With less than impressive sales in one of the most profitable segments of the American vehicle market, and an ageing, 14-year old generation still on dealer lots, the Toyota Tundra is arguably due for a complete overhaul. And I’m here to tell you that the all-new and improved 2022 Tundra is closer than ever, with an estimated launch date sometime towards the end of 2021 as a 2022 model year.
Keep reading to find out all the latest information regarding the third generation Toyota Tundra, a truck that will be „dominating” soon.
The Toyota GR Corolla Could Shame The Hyundai Veloster R and VW Golf GTi
Despite trends in the automotive industry, Toyota is hellbent on cracking through the norm and delivering fun cars that aren’t electric or riding on elevated suspension. In Europe, Toyota offers the GR Yaris, a 257-horsepower pocket rocket that offers zero hope of arriving Stateside, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to be left in the dark. Previous rumors have hinted that Toyota has plans to introduce a U.S.-bound Corolla GR to compete with the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Hyundai Veloster N. Now, a new report from Car Sensor in Japan says that the Corolla GR will be even better than expected. How good? Well, pretty damn good.
An Electric Toyota Tundra? It Could Happen Sooner Than You Think
The truck segment is prepping for electrification at an unimaginable pace, courtesy of specialist EV companies like Tesla and Rivian. Mainstream car brands are also throwing their hats in the ring (like they have any other option!), and the latest one to do so is Toyota. The automaker confirmed that the company is planning to electrify its truck lineup. This is the first time the Japanese automaker has spoken about pickup truck electrification. There’s no word on which truck gets the ion shot first, but whichever it is, expect it to come sooner than expected.
This 2022 Toyota GR86 Convertible Is Strangely Attractive
The Toyota GR86 is certainly one of the more pleasant surprises in the automotive world. In times when cars are becoming bigger, heavier, and much more complex, car enthusiasts begged for a car that’s simple, sporty, and relatively attainable. That being said, the Toyota GR86 may be available as both a Toyota and a Subaru product, but it only comes in coupe form. Although we definitely don’t mind that, some of us have wondered how a convertible version would look like.
The Toyota 86 Might Be Delayed But For a Very Good Reason
Imagine, For A Moment, that Subaru And Toyota Built A High-Performance AWD Hatchback
Subaru and Toyota, the companies that co-developed the 86 and BRZ twins, might be working on a new high-performance car. According to a report from Japan, the two brands are jointly developing an all-wheel-drive hatchback inspired by rally-spec machines from the 1990s. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? But what is it?
The Toyota Supra and GT86 Could Soon Be Followed By The Celica
The iconic Toyota Celica could return after almost two decades to join the Supra and the 86 in the company’s sports car lineup. Toyota has recently trademarked the Celica name in the U.S., hinting that the affordable coupe discontinued in 2006 is ready to make a comeback.
2021 Toyota GR Super Sport
2020 didn’t suck entirely for the car world, and other than the usual suspects, we were teased with a handful of upcoming hypercars. For example, Toyota took to Le Mans to unveil its first-ever hypercar in front of the public.
While unveil is a big word, really - we only saw a heavy-camouflaged prototype lapping the Circuit de la Sarthe track, the presentation came with a couple of specs and numbers. Until Toyota decides to fully loosen its lips on the topic, here’s all we know so far about the GR Super Sport hypercar.
2021 Toyota GRMN Yaris
The 2021 Toyota GRMN Yaris is an upcoming high-performance version of the fourth-generation hatchback. Toyota has yet to confirm the GRMN Yaris, but word has it the Japanese brand is planning to introduce a range-topping GRMN version of its GR-badged cars in a variety of segments. What’s more, Toyota recently tested a beefed-up GR Yaris on the Nurburgring and its appearance hints at an upcoming GRMN variant.
Just like the GR model, the GRMN is being developed by Toyota’s Gazoo Racing division. However, development takes place under a more hardcore performance arm called Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nurburgring. The 2021 GRMN will arrive with a sportier exterior and various upgrades to the drivetrain. Let’s find out more about it in the speculative review below.
The Name Chosen For Toyota’s New 1,400-HP Hypercar Should Have Been Obvious
It’s no longer a mystery that Toyota is planning to deliver a road-going hypercar soon. It was showcased as a concept car back in 2018 and as a prototype during the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. The hypercar will be based on Toyota’s new race car built for the Le Mans Hypercar class. As a homologation special, it will have to see a production run of at least 20 units. The hypercar is rumored to arrive with up to 1,400 horsepower, but we still don’t know how it’s going to be called. The original concept was called the GR Super Sport, but a new trademark filing suggests it may have an alphanumeric name.
The Latest Report on the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ Will Piss You Off
We’ve been talking about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ since they were confirmed back in February 2019. A year after that confirmation, we learned that the 86 would get a new name, would feature a turbocharged Subaru engine, and would shift into premium territory. More recently, in March of 2020, a new leak hinted that the 2021 Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ would be making their debut soon. A new report, however, has expressed that a lot of what we’ve learned isn’t true at all, and that’s very bad news for the next-gen BRZ and 86.
Our First Look At the 2022 Toyota GR86 Proves Little Will Change Under the Skin
With more than a year’s worth of leaks and news about the next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ, we finally learned in early August that Subaru was ending production of the BRZ. Toyota hasn’t commented on its production timetable for the current-gen 86, but we’re pretty sure the current-gens end of production isn’t far off. That has become more than evident now that the first spy video and images of the 2022 Toyota GR86 has surfaced online. Much like the most recent rumors suggest, neither Subaru nor Toyota are changing very much as they shift into the next generation.
A BMW M3-Powered Toyota Supra GRMN Is in the Works, But There’s a Catch
With the 2020 Toyota Supra being based so heavily on the BMW Z4, you can imagine that it had a very strong offering of aftermarket options by the time it launched. After all, just about anything that will mechanically improve the Z4 will improve the Supra too, right? Well, imagine for a moment, if you will, an A90 Toyota Supra with the S58 engine that’s found in the X3 and X4 M and the upcoming next-gen M3 and M4. That would make the Toyota Supra one powerful beast and force to be reckoned with. The best part? A new report straight out of Japan says it’s going to happen. That special Supra will be known as the Supra GRMN, and it’s going to be outlandishly rare.
Toyota Teases The 2021 Hilux In An Official Video
The 2021 Toyota Hilux is all set to be unveiled in a few days. To keep the hype going, Toyota Europe has released a teaser of the refreshed truck with none other than former F1 driver Fernando Alonso behind the wheel.
The 2021 Hilux is said to be inspired by the U.S.-based Tacoma and Tundra, but we can’t figure out much from the teaser, thanks to the heavy camouflage. But, the big news is that Toyota has updated the 2.8-liter mill and it will receive a power bump. Excited much?
