2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport Brings Off-Road Capabilities To The Road
The Toyota 4Runner is currently in its fifth generation - and we have to admit that, after more than 11 years on the market, it is long overdue for an update. But, a sixth generation 4Runner is still years away, so Toyota is still playing with what it has. For the 2022 model year, the 4Runner has received a series of exterior updates - nothing major though, and most importantly the addition of a new TRD Sport model.
These 10 Fast ‘Fuel-Powered’ Pickup Trucks Shouldn’t Be Forgotten When Electric Trucks Take Over
We talk about how the upcoming electric pickup trucks are fast and heavy on performance. Trucks like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, etc. are all quicker than some of the famous supercars of this era. Although internal combustion-engined trucks aren’t known to be ‘fast’, there are a handful of them that could are quite agile. Doug DeMuro decided to list 10 such cool fast trucks, and we agree with every entry on this list.
2022 Toyota GR 86
Entering its second generation, the GR 86 has uplifting expectations as a coupe, and carries forward quite a few elements which make it stick to “the roots”. And that, we all know that the GR 86 shares a lot of DNA with the Subaru BRZ, including the same chassis and the engine, but some would argue that the former is lighter and manageable in most conditions. For the 2022 model year, the 86 features a flat-four engine layout but the size has gone up to 2.4-liter and it is still naturally aspirated. The new 86 is offered with your choice of a manual or automatic transmission. Apart from the mechanics, the coupe comes loaded with tech and the cabin gets significant updates to give that new-car feeling. The Gazoo Racing team has put up a big effort to make the GR 86 stand out in the crowd and and it’s fairly affordable for what it offers.
This AMG-Powered Toyota Hilux Proves Toyota Pick-Up Trucks Can Be Exciting
When you think Toyota, you don’t really think big power, unless we are talking about a Supra. The same goes for their SUVs and pick-up trucks, which although dependable, will not “tickle the pickle” when it comes to performance. With that said, Quentin Boylan from Praetoria, South Africa, decided to make his Toyota Hilux a lot more exciting.
2004 Alessandro Volta: The Supercar From Toyota, Ahead Of Its Time
Nowadays, hybrid supercars are as common as a VW Jetta. Well, not quite, but you get the idea. Pretty much anyone into cars can name at least a few hybrid supercars off the top of his head – Ferrari SF90 Stradale, Lamborghini Sian, McLaren Speedtail, Aston Martin Valkyrie, Koenigsegg Regera, and others. What you may not know is that back when hybrid supercars were even considered, Toyota beat everyone to it. They did so with the Toyota Alessandro Volta, and this is everything we know about it.
This Rendering Shows What a Modern-Day Toyota GR Starlet Could Look Like
There are certain cars we would love to have modern-day versions of. The list is progressively growing, as manufacturers shift their focus from fun cars to crossovers, SUVs, and EVs. That said, some of our favorite cars are getting a spiritual successor in the form of virtual renderings and this time, it’s Top Gear Philippines that brings back an iconic and somewhat obscure (to some) Japanese hot hatch – the Toyota Starlet Glanza V.

The Toyota Supra in Forza Horizon 5 Is Going to Be Epic
The new Toyota Supra is nothing if not controversial. Meant to be a spiritual successor to the legendary Mk.3 Supra, it’s extreme ties to the BMW Z4 didn’t rub a lot of enthusiasts right. To this day, we’re still not sure if the new Supra is even as tunable as the Mk.3, at least not without some crazy 2JZ transplant, anyway. Regardless of what’s possible in real life, the new Toyota Supra is included as a day-one car in Forza Horizon 5 and, so far, it looks like it’ll at least live up to the reputation it’s meant to have in the game.
Your Dreams Of Owning A Toyota GR Super Sport Just Went Up in Flames…Literally
In mid-2018 we learned that Toyota was planning a road-going hypercar to complement its WEC racer and, a few months later, we laid eyes on the concept for the first time. Toyota has apparently been hard at work, and even revealed a camouflaged prototype earlier in 2021, but all of that may have been for nothing if the newest report coming out of Japan is correct. In short, the road-going GR Super Sport has been canceled after a horrendous crash and burn during testing.
Toyota Marks The Land Cruiser’s 70th Birthday With An Anniversary Edition
Toyota just showed off a limited edition model of its iconic Land Cruiser. It commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Land Cruiser family, the very first model of which debuted on August 1, 1951. Yes, you heard that right, since the Land Cruiser is 70 years old, what better way to celebrate than with a limited edition of one of Toyota’s most iconic models that is still in production to this day. However, this special edition, based on the top-of-the-line GXL trim of the 70 series, will only be available in select markets around the world.
Toyota’s Gazoo Racing Is Now Producing Spare Parts For A Very Unexpected Model
The Toyota Land Cruiser 40 is, arguably, the brand’s most iconic off-road vehicle. It was produced from 1960 to 1984 (1968-2001 in Brazil). Although production of spare parts was discontinued, that’s about to change. On August 1st, Toyota Gazoo Racing announced that production of spare parts for the classic 4X4 will once again commence, which would allow owners of the vehicle to extend its life cycle.
Gazoo Racing Has A Big Surprise for Toyota GR86 Fans
It’s painfully obvious that Toyota isn’t interested in developing any high-performance vehicles, at least not by itself. This explains the more recent collaborations that spawned the GR Supra and 86 models. The latter, in particular, has been on the radar of tuning specialists since the beginning, as its playful chassis and less-than-sufficient power output (for some) are a good starting point for some epic builds. This time, however, Toyota isn’t about to let the tuners steal its lunch money and are giving us their vision of a serious performance proposition based on the Toyota GR86.
