2016 Toyota 4Runner Review

2016 Toyota 4Runner Review

It felt almost blasphemous, turning up at Tesla's Model X launch in the vast 2016 Toyota 4Runner. Stood in line outside, surrounded by Tesla owners - many of them preorder customers for the new electric SUV - discussing the longest trip on a single charge they'd made, or the money on gas they'd saved, or just how generally superior to dinosaur-juice burning cars their electric steeds turned out to be, I couldn't help but dwell on the 4Runner's 4.0-liter V6 engine and its 18mpg mileage.

Toyota S-FR tipped to pack 1.5L 128hp four

A few days back Toyota unveiled three new concept cars that will be on display at the Tokyo motor show. Among those cars was the slightly odd looking S-FR sports car. A forum set up specifically for that car now claims to have the specifications for the concept car, how exactly why got them is unclear so salt is needed.

Toyota shows off tech inside new 2016 Prius

Toyota shows off tech inside new 2016 Prius

Toyota has many of its hopes pined to the 2016 Prius. Sales of the hybrid could use a boost as stiffer competition from other hybrid and electric cars and standard cars with better fuel economy have started taking sales away from the Prius. Toyota has already unveiled the car and has come back to show off some of the tech inside the 2016 Prius.

Toyota TS040 race car cooked breakfast for 171 people

Toyota TS040 race car cooked breakfast for 171 people

No, Toyota's race car doesn't come with an AI butler and chef that will actually cook breakfast for the driver and his throng of fans. It's not intelligent enough to do that. It's regenerative braking tech, however, is powerful enough to brew 171.4 cups of coffee, toast 83.3 slices of bread, and fry 57.7 eggs. This almost absurd stunt, appropriately christened Toyota Barista, is an elaborate marketing campaign by the car maker to demonstrate in a more memorable and expressive way just how powerful its technology really is.

Highway Teammate is Toyota’s entry into the smart car race

Highway Teammate is Toyota’s entry into the smart car race

Anyone and everyone has their own take on the car of the future, whether that future means fully automated self-driving vehicles or simply AI-assisted ones. So it shouldn't be surprising to hear Toyota announcing the test car that will drive its technology to the land of tomorrow. Dubbed the Highway Teammate, the test car will be the model on which Toyota's AI-driven cars will be based on, which the car maker hopes to take place by 2020. But Toyota isn't just trying to sell you a smart car. It's trying to sell you a new friend.

Toyota patent app highlights flying car dreams

Toyota patent app highlights flying car dreams

Toyota has filed a patent app for something that is weird, but cool. It’s not often that I can say Toyota has done something cool. The patent app highlights a design for a flying car that looks like the love child of a Prius and the Red Barron's Fokker DR.1 Triplane. That aircraft is perhaps the best-known layered wing aircraft ever built.

2016 Toyota Prius literally descends in Las Vegas

2016 Toyota Prius literally descends in Las Vegas

With an event that eschews the traditional and literal unveiling for a more heart-stopping descent from ceiling to showroom floor and a tagline that says "Sky's the limit", Toyota is unsubtly saying something about the fourth generation Prius that it has revealed at the LA Auto Show today. And perhaps there is justification for that. The 2016 Prius is definitely not 2009's model, having undergone a substantial and well needed change. And not just in form, but in the very parts that make up the whole.
