Toyota

Toyota Motor Corporation as we know it today is headquartered in Aichi, Japan. The world’s sixth-largest company in the world by revenue as of September 2018, Toyota is also the largest carmaker in the world. The company was founded back in 1937 by Kiichiro Toyoda as a car-flavoured business derived from his father’s company, called Toyota Industries. Today, Toyota has factories in most parts of the world from Japan to Australia to Bangladesh and Mexico, just to name a few. Some of Toyota’s most lucrative markets are the United States, followed by Japan, Europe, and Asia. With a hefty motorsport legacy behind, Toyota is also a spearheading company when it comes to alternative ways of propulsion, after launching the Prius in 2012 and continuing to refine the recipe to this day. Besides plug-in hybrids, Toyota, pretty much like most carmakers these days, is looking at ways to deploy the power of electricity in its lineup of vehicles. In this regard, the company experimented heavily with the RAV4 EV and the iQ EV, while also spreading its tentacles towards the hydrogen fuel-cell technology with a road-going sedan called Mirai (mirai means future in Japanese). The carmaker even released 5,600 patents for free use until 2020 in an attempt to bump up the development of hydrogen fuel-cell tech on a global scale.

But now, it is a well-equipped compact PHEV with exceptional mileage figures and decent interior amenities too.

Zacoe Performance Gives The Supra The Look it Deserves

Lots of carbon fiber and new wheels is the recipe for a perfect looking Toyota Supra

If Zacoe name sounds familiar to you is because recently they did quite intensive work on several of BMW’s models. First, they started by replacing that ridiculous grille on the M3 and the M4, and they continued by giving the 8 Series a more aggressive look. It even updated the looks of the McLaren 720S. Now, the tuner is focusing its attention on a car that has made waves ever since it was launched on the market: the new Toyota Supra! And the result can be simply described as wow!

RAM 1500 TRX Takes On An A90 Supra In A 1/4 Mile Face-off

The Supra on paper has half the power of the TRX, but also weighs half as much. This RWD vs AWD shootout is closer than you think

The Drag Racing and Car Stuff Channel put out yet another super video over the weekend, where a RAM 1500 TRX took on an A90 Supra over the ¼ Mile. Now, as usual, I can’t really confirm the exact specs, but as with anything that hits the drag strip, it’s unlikely that the two contenders we have here are stock.

Toyota Elevates The Tundra Pickup Truck With A New Flagship Trim Called The ‘Capstone’

The Tundra Capstone will come with the hybrid engine and in the CrewMax body style as standard

The 2022 Toyota Tundra came out a few months ago with an insane amount of changes. The Japanese truck is known for its tough build and reliability, and those were a couple of reasons why the automaker was able to milk it for 14 long years without any major change. But, the company brought in the new Tundra for the 2022 model year with a lot of changes on the outside, inside, and under the hood. Just when it looked like the hype behind the truck had gone down, Toyota decided to do something about it.

The automaker revealed a new flagship trim in the already crowded lineup called the ‘Capstone’. It will be the apex trim in Tundra’s portfolio and is expected to start at over $60,000. The top-grade will arrive in Spring this year.

Toyota is marketing the new GR 86 the right way

Let’s be honest, a lot of car ads don’t exactly excite us these days. There’s the stuff that Marvel and Lexus did for Eternals—which looks too much of a product placement rather than a showcase of what the IS 500 F Sport Performance is capable of. And then there’s this latest campaign by Toyota, which is one of those ads that truly brought our adrenaline up and running.

The cabin is also very driver-centric, a quintessential trait of a proper sporty vehicle.

On the other hand, sales aside, one can see the Supra as the most popular and loved Toyota, and we’re not necessarily talking about the new generation.
