Toyota Camry is Most American-Made, Says Cars.com

Monday, July 6th, 2015

The Toyota Camry is a well-known and loved vehicle here in the USA. Most of us see at least one or two on the road every day, although we probably don’t take a whole lot of notice. But since Toyota is a Japanese automaker, that means the Camry is made in Japan, right? Wrong.

In fact, the Camry was recently named most American-made by the experts at Cars.com. And this isn’t the first time the sedan has been given this title—it’s actually the fifth time. It’s no surprise really, since the Camry has been America’s favorite car for the past 13 years. The car is manufactured at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Inc. (TMMK), located in Georgetown, Kentucky. Just last year, the plant built its 10-millionth vehicle, which just happened to be—you guessed it—a Camry. TMMK also produces the Camry Hybrid, Avalon, and Avalon Hybrid, and will begin production of the Lexus ES later this year.

Toyota Contributes to Help Education Opportunities

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Always a supporter of education, Toyota recently made two contributions to education initiatives in order to encourage young Americans to learn techniques that will help them in their future careers.

Firstly, the Toyota USA Foundation donated $300,000 to the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy. The check was awarded prior to the first pitch in last Friday’s game. It’ll help to support the Academy’s programs in STEM, literacy, and character development, which are aimed at Washington, DC’s most underserved community. “The Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy’s partnership with the Toyota USA Foundation came at an early and critical point in our development,” explained Tal Alter, Executive Director at the Academy. “The Foundation’s support accelerated our growth in ways that were otherwise not possible. We thank them for their continued support with this generous grant.”

The 2015 Toyota Sienna

Monday, July 6th, 2015

We had the 2015 Toyota Sienna SE. It had a 3.5-liter V6 engine that made 266 horsepower and 245 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission the Sienna had plenty of power to maneuver on the expressways here as well as on the surface streets. It had an EPA rating of 18 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg combined.

You should know that we weren’t carrying passengers, so our test vehicle was rather spry on the pavement. But if you’re hauling kids around, a reasonable argument is that you have no business whizzing in and out of traffic anyway.

We had captain’s chairs in the second row. That meant that our Sienna could carry seven passengers in a 2+2+3 configuration. A second row bench seat increases its capacity to eight passengers. We had the front-wheel-drive model, but there is an all-wheel-drive version. Toyota said the Sienna is the only minivan available with all-wheel-drive.

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE: Quiet, affordable efficiency

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Toyota’s Camry has been a market favorite for the last dozen years, and the 2015 continues with a formula that has proven to be popular with the public: affordable, smooth, quiet, and, especially in the case of the Hybrid, efficient. It is genuinely a car for the masses.

Redesigning a popular model is a bit like getting elected to office – it’s important to appeal to the broad center of the market by not being too radical or too conservative. Toyota has always done a good job of that, but as the car evolved the styling has become bolder. The company’s recent penchant for large, fish-mouth grilles no doubt comes from its desire to design a sedan that is “getting sporty, getting younger,” according to press materials. I must not be in the sporty and younger crowd because the large grille is one of the things I like least about an otherwise well-executed family car whose design is lean and clean.
