2016 Toyota Tacoma Adds Feature For Adventurous Drivers!

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

To say that cars and trucks have come a long way would be the understatement of the year award for sure. Over the last ten years or so, the technology and features that have been added to new cars and trucks has been somewhat overwhelming. Now you can get backup assistance, help with parallel parking and even an infotainment system that is second only to your smartphone. Getting around town is made easier and more comfortable in many different ways.

With that being said, there are also a few features that have been added to trucks these days that gives adventurous users a little something to write home about. The brand new 2016 Toyota Tacoma is one of those trucks and the newly added feature is one that might surprise some, but not me. According to online sources, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is going to come with a mount of your GoPro action camera. The Tacoma is one that you might want to take off road once in a while, so why not an option to record the adventure?

Sources have reported that when the 2016 Toyota Tacoma hits the dealerships, each one of them will have a mount specifically for your GoPro. The mount is going to be located in the front glass, which gives the perfect perspective when driving through the desert at high speeds, the jungle at slow speeds or just through your daily commute. The feature encourages drivers to record their adventures in the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma.

Midsize SUV Comparison: 2015 Toyota Highlander

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Multi-Award Winner Lives Up to the Hype

A mainstay of the midsize SUV realm since it rolled onto the scene for 2001, the Toyota Highlander has grown in stature and substance over time. Most recently redesigned for the 2014 model year, the third-generation Highlander bolsters LE, LE Plus, XLE and Limited trim choices with the availability of 4-cylinder, V6 or Hybrid powertrains. The Highlander also boasts the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds and carries a 5-star overall crash rating from NHTSA. Last but far from least, in a market rich with solid choices, the 2015 Toyota Highlander won our inaugural Kelley Blue Book Midsize SUV Best Buy Award and earned a spot on our 2015 Best Family Car roster.

Toyota Camry is still king

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Finding a reliable family car isn’t easy. With the market’s 30-plus manufacturers fighting tooth and nail for a slice of this profitable pie, you can expect each to lavish engineering talent on performance, luxury, and comfort. The perennial best-seller in this lucrative segment is Toyota’s Camry, a vehicle directly challenged only by Honda’s Accord and the occasional short-term overachiever. With the exception of excitement (and then only in quiet moderation), the Camry stands at the pyramid’s apex.

Don’t mistake this year’s Camry for the 2014 version. The 2015 version has received a near-complete interior overhaul, though outside you’d be hard pressed to find obvious differences. The switchgear is all new, its “feel” rating with the best.

2015 Toyota Avalon

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Still quick, slick, and stylish.

With the Toyota Avalon’s midcycle refresh having been unveiled for 2016, we felt it was appropriate to take a final spin in the current version, which has been on sale since 2013. While this might seem like an unexciting assignment, the Avalon—shockingly—isn’t boring. (Well, the conventional, V-6–powered model reviewed here isn’t; the hybrid version is quite sanitized.) Indeed, this car proves that a Toyota product actually can be among the more interesting entries in its class

What’s New: Since its full redesign for 2013, the Avalon has soldiered on mostly unchanged. Last year, Toyota added a standard backup camera and a one-touch, three-blink turn-signal function. This year, the XLE Touring Sport trim level came online with standard HID headlights and black-painted 18-inch wheels. Paddle shifters also were fitted to every model, having previously been available only on select trim levels. Buyers can still choose among base, Premium, Touring, and Touring Sport versions of the XLE—we drove the last model for this review—while the top-flight Limited comes just one way.
