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.

Battle Of The Midsize Pickup Trucks: Toyota Hilux Takes On the VW Amarok In a Drag Race

Battle Of The Midsize Pickup Trucks: Toyota Hilux Takes On the VW Amarok In a Drag Race

Carwow pits the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok against each other in a drag race, and the result will probably surprise you.

A drag race between two stock midsize pickup trucks is about as scientific as a drift competition with shopping carts. Pickup truck buyers are rarely interested in the performance aspect of these vehicles, but Carwow still gives us the answer to a question we never thought of asking – which is the quicker pickup truck. This time it’s the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok that line up for a quarter-mile drag and despite the two vehicles being very similar on paper, the outcome is quite decisive.

Watch The GR Yaris Spank The Legendary Toyota Supra MK4 and the Celica GT-Four In a Drag Race

Watch The GR Yaris Spank The Legendary Toyota Supra MK4 and the Celica GT-Four In a Drag Race

It’s a hard pill to swallow, but the yesteryear Supra and the Celica are no match for the modern GR Yaris in a quarter-mile race

The Toyota Supra needs no introduction. The 20th-century model came with the famed 2JZ engine and was every kid’s dream car and some point back then. It was Brian’s drive in the Fast and Furious movies and was one of the reasons for its popularity amongst kids. In fact, that car fetched over half-a-million bucks at an auction recently.

The Supra Mk4 was brought to a drag strip by Carwow to take on the Celica GT-Four and the GR Yaris. The GR Yaris, with all the modern tech, beat the Celica and the Supra, but how did the latter two fare against each other?

The Toyota GR Supra Might Offer Better Performance Than the GR86, But Is It A Better Toyota?

The Toyota GR Supra Might Offer Better Performance Than the GR86, But Is It A Better Toyota?

Here’s why the GR86 is a better Japanese sports car than the GR Supra

By now, it’s painfully obvious that Toyota isn’t interested in reliving the glorious 1990s. Back in those days, they had the SW20 MR-2/MR-S, the Celica GT-Four and SS3, and let’s not forget the venerable Supra Mk IV. However, sports cars cost a lot to develop and their market niche is insignificant compared to something like a Corolla. You can see why, nowadays, Toyota has two front-engine rear-wheel-drive sports cars and both of which are not pure Toyota products – the GR Supra and GR86. The latter, though, is more worthy of the Toyota badge and here’s why.

Toyota’s Latest Teaser Includes Evidence That the Tundra Will Be a hybrid

It looks like the 2022 Toyota Tundra will rock out a hybrid powertrain, maybe across the entire lineup

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?

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series

The 13th-gen Land Cruiser 300 looks different inside and out, is based on a new platform, and comes with a couple of new engine options

After 14 years of the 200 Series, Toyota debuted the Land Cruiser 300, which happens to be the iconic SUV’s 13th generation. The automaker will most likely not bring it to the U.S. Instead we might get the LX instead, the Lexus equivalent of this model. The 13th generation Land Cruiser 300 Series rides on a new platform and comes with two V-6 engine options. It looks different on the inside and outside, too. Should Toyota have tried this new-gen Land Cruiser in the U.S. for a year before pulling out?

The 2022 Toyota Tundra will launch with new engines, new technology, and A LOT more power!

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.

The Toyota Supra A91-CF - for when you need a Supra in your life but want to have exposed carbon fiber too

The A91 Toyota Supra has been the center of controversy ever since early 2020, when Toyota announced that the 2021 model would benefit from more power and better engineering. It got even worse when it was announced that Europeans wouldn’t get the updated 2021 model, while Toyota announced its [justification for improving the Supra its second year->art188439 on the market, despite the shaft it gave first-year buyers. Beyond this, however, the Supra has proven itself to be worthy of the Supra name, and the latest addition to the 2022 lineup gives it the carbon-fiber look that it deserves. This is the 2022 Toyota Supra A91-CF (Carbon Fiber) Edition, but don’t get too excited yet because it’s a North American affair, and its production is limited.

A Very Rare Toyota MR2 TRD 2000GT Is Up For Auction

A Very Rare Toyota MR2 TRD 2000GT Is Up For Auction

This very rare MR2 TRD 2000GT is up for grabs, and it’s beyond special

There are a few 1990s cars referred to as "The poor man’s Ferrari". The Toyota MR2 (SW20) certainly deserves it, as despite not costing nearly as much as a Ferrari, it bears striking resemblance to the Ferrari 348. With that being said, Toyota did offer a version of the MR2 that was capable of humiliating both the 348 and the F355 that came after it. TRD – Toyota’s racing division – did with the MR2 exactly the same thing they did with the Supra. They built 35 highly modified, wide-body MR2 cars, dubbed the TRD 2000GT. And now, one of them is about to be auctioned off.

The 2022 4Runner will be offered with a new TRD Sport trim that comes with a few exterior and interior tweaks, and a new suspension tuning for improved on-road dynamics

Toyota has been quite busy in the last few days. The automaker unveiled the new GR86, a carbon-fiber Supra, debuted the Corolla Cross, introduced the refreshed Tacoma TRD Pro, and even brought the bZ4x concept to our shores. Apart from all this, Toyota also introduced a new TRD Sport model to the 2022 4Runner’s lineup. If you want something that has more off-road vibes and street cred than the regular trims but not something as full-blown off-roader as the TRD Pro trim, then the TRD Sport will fit your bill.

What’s the best way to get someone’s attention? Scream? I guess that’s what Toyota thinks because it just launched an off-road trim of a pickup truck in a bright lime shade! Neither ‘Off-road’ nor ‘pickup truck’ can be associated with a lime exterior shade. But, Toyota seems to have done that with the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro.

The global version of the 2022 Toyota GR86 arrived back in April of 2021, and since then, we’ve seen what it could look like as a convertible, as a shooting brake, and we’ve even seen how others would have redesigned it.

The Toyota Mega Cruiser is basically the Japanese HUMVEE, but cooler

When you hear Toyota, some of the first words to come to mind are reliable, boring, hybrid, or if you’re into the 4X4 scene – rugged. The Toyota Land Cruiser is, to this day, one of the most iconic 4X4s out there. What most people don’t know is that there is a bigger “Cruiser”, made by Toyota – the Toyota Mega Cruiser. Chris O’Neil is an enthusiast YouTube channel, named after its creator, in which “he does stuff with interesting vehicles”. In this case, he gives a detailed overview of the obscure boxy SUV.

Toyota Celica SS III - The Forgotten Rival to the Integra Type-R

Toyota Celica SS III - The Forgotten Rival to the Integra Type-R

Why didn’t the Celica SS III get the popularity of the Integra?

JDM cars have one of the largest cult followings of all cars and for a good reason. In particular, the cars from the 1990s seem to have the most substantial fan base. That said, for one reason or another, some cars have are more iconic than others that have similar performance. When we talk about front-wheel-drive cars, one of the most iconic models is the Honda Integra Type-R. However, many have forgotten that Toyota had a similar car that has been largely overlooked – the Celica SS III – and there are many reasons why it’s as good as the Type-R.
