2022 Toyota GR 86

2022 Toyota GR 86

If you thought the first-gen Toyota 86 was awesome, just wait until you learn about the second-gen model!

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.

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series

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?

2022 Toyota Supra A91-CF

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.

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport

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.

2021 Toyota Supra by Avante Design

Avante Design give us their take on how the Toyota GR Supra should look like

The Toyota Supra is a legendary name in the car community and, although its fifth-generation is a great car on paper, it’s also somewhat controversial. By now, most people have accepted the fact the A90 Supra is based on a BMW Z4. However, the aesthetics of the car leave something to be desired, especially when you compare it to the stunning FT-1 concept car from 2014. With this in mind, Avante design has taken the opportunity to show us what they can do with the Supra’s design.

Toyota has revealed the bZ4X electric crossover concept. Kicking off the new ‘Beyond Zero’ series for the Japanese automaker, this concept looks to be a spiritual successor to the RAV4.

The bZ4X is based on a BEV platform that Toyota has co-developed with Subaru, and it will feature an all-wheel-drive system.

2021 Toyota Yaris Cross

The Yaris just got tougher and more electrifying

Toyota is in the midst of reorganizing its lineup and the Yaris Cross will be the next one to step in, as the brand’s newest compact crossover.

2021 Toyota 86 Black Limited Edition

2021 Toyota 86 Black Limited Edition

A proper special edition 86 that pays tribute to a special edition AE86 from the 1980s

Toyota hasn’t been shy about rolling out special edition models of the 86 sports car, and with the second-generation 86 already on the horizon, another limited-run 86 has been released for the Japanese market. This particular special edition 86 hits close to home for some, in part because it’s a modern-day homage to the AE86 Black Limited that Toyota unveiled back in 1986. This one is also called the Black Limited, and just like its predecessor, it comes with a fair amount of exclusive upgrades, including a new set of polished gold wheels. Only 86 units of the Toyota 86 Black Limited are available, and all 86 allocations are exclusive to the Japanese market, or at least most of them are.

2021 Toyota Supra 2.0

2021 Toyota Supra 2.0

The GR Supra gets a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine and less fat on its hips

We all know an love - well, not all - the A90 Supra and its 3-liter inline-six mill which, yes, comes from BMW, the co-developer of the Supra-Z4 project.

One year after the Supra’s unveil, Toyota decided to come up with a lighter, cheaper, and presumably equally fun version that’s animated by a four-cylinder mill. Turbocharging is still on the table, as well as a lighter platform for even nippier on-road behavior, despite the natural drop in power. Here’s all you need to know about the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0.

2021 Toyota GR Super Sport

Toyota is flexing its hyper-performance muscle hard with help from Gazoo Racing

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 Supra GR 500 by Manhart

2021 Toyota Supra GR 500 by Manhart

It’s gold, and it can punch you in the mouth

The 2021 Toyota Supra’s stock BMW-sourced, 382-horsepower 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine is a noticeable improvement from the 335-horsepower unit that first came out, but if would-be Supra owners really want to channel their inner Brian O’Connell, 382 ponies isn’t going to cut it.

For that, help from the aftermarket world is needed, and it just so happens that Manhart Racing is ready with open warms. The German tuner already presented a 450-horsepower upgrade for the Japanese sports coupé earlier this year, but it seems that the rambunctiousness isn’t over.

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime - Driven

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime - Driven

How well does the Toyota RAV4Prime hold up in the real world?

Any new version of the Toyota RAV4 is automatically a big deal. Aside from a few big pickup trucks, the RAV4 is America’s favorite vehicle. And it has also been a winner among eco-conscious buyers; not long after the gas/electric RAV4 Hybrid debuted in 2016, it became America’s favorite hybrid — even outselling Toyota’s iconic Prius.

So when Toyota announced the 2021 RAV4 Prime, it was a big deal. Forget about the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, a low-range plug-in hybrid version of a forgettable SUV. Forget about a planned Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, which doesn’t offer all-wheel-drive and whose on-sale date got bumped back a year over fire risks. Forget about various plug-in sedans and hatchbacks, and various expensive luxury plug-in hybrids that can barely crack 20 miles of low-speed all-electric use. And forget about the range anxiety that keeps many people away from fully electric vehicles. No, it’s the RAV4 Prime that promises to make Americans plug in their cars en masse.

We spent a week in the new 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime to see how it bridges the gap between the gasoline and electric worlds. Here’s what we found.

On sale from December 2021, the new Toyota Mirai comes to pick up from where the first-generation left off. We already saw it take a bow at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2019 and Toyota just announced the FCEV is ready to go on sale.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2021 Toyota Mirai, whether you’re looking to buy one or not.

2020 Toyota C-HR GR Sport

2020 Toyota C-HR GR Sport

Toyota’s spunky crossover gets a GR Sport-styled attitude adjustment

Toyota’s range of performance-spec models under the “GR/GRMN” family has a new member in the fold. The C-HR GR Sport, which Toyota first unveiled in October in Japan, is heading to the global market packing enough sporty bits to qualify as a GR Sport model.

The upgrades are mostly cosmetic in nature, but Toyota also worked on improving several of the crossover’s technical elements. Considering that GR Sport is the entry-level line of Toyota’s growing performance-spec lineup — the GR sits in the middle and the GRMN rules the roost — the C-HR GR Sport is both a walking advertisement of what you can expect from future GR Sport models and a good example on the kind of performance potential that the C-HR has.
