Toyota Partially Gives Up Their Fight Against What People Actually Want In Their Cars And Begins Support Of Apple CarPlay Toyota Partially Gives Up Their Fight Against What People Actually Want In Their Cars And Begins Support Of Apple CarPlay

Toyota has been the last major automaker to resist ceding the user experience of its in-car infotainment systems to dangerous, bloodthirsty outsiders like Apple and Android. That hard line appears to finally be cracking, with the 2019 Toyota Avalon announcement mentioning support for Apple’s CarPlay, with support on…

2019 Toyota Avalon: We're Still Doing This One, Huh 2019 Toyota Avalon: We're Still Doing This One, Huh

One can be forgiven for forgetting the Toyota Avalon exists. It’s pretty far from an enthusiast vehicle, the market’s currently hostile to big sedans, and it could be argued the Toyota brand hasn’t had any cool large four-doors in the U.S. since the Cressida packed a straight six and rear-wheel drive. But the Avalon…

With every day we seem to inch closer to fully driverless cars in series production, but it’s still not clear if they’ll ever fully displace human-driven cars. One of the more cogent takes on the issue comes from, of all places, Toyota’s factory race program in Japan.

A Manual Toyota Yaris iA Is Secretly A Super Fun Car A Manual Toyota Yaris iA Is Secretly A Super Fun Car

There are few greater joys on this Earth than a good small car. They’re easy to park and live with, chuckable when you want some action. The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA is the perfect example. It’s an absolute delight with a manual transmission, and a car that’s woefully overlooked on the road.

Introducing Toyota’s new body pod concept called the e-Palette at this year’s CES, the automaker’s president, Akio Toyoda, offered up a few ideas on how it could be utilized: parcel delivery, ride sharing, mobile e-commerce. Toyoda had one more: Burning Man! Yowza.

Toyota's E-Palette Mobile Space Brings The Bodega To You Toyota's E-Palette Mobile Space Brings The Bodega To You

Plenty of companies are going to CES this year with big and flashy announcements of how they will “disrupt” things. Toyota is one of them, aiming to change up shopping with its new e-Palette concept. It’s an intriguing idea, but one that I could only see working out in places where street-side real estate isn’t…

Behold This Insane V12 Made From Two Toyota 1JZ Engines Behold This Insane V12 Made From Two Toyota 1JZ Engines

Modifying Toyota Supra engines is all fun and and good, but that gets done a lot. A tuning shop in Minnesota refreshingly didn’t go that typical route, instead combining turbocharged six-cylinder engines pulled from two Supras and combining them into a V12.

No, Fernando Alonso Isn’t Officially Doing Le Mans For Toyota — Yet No, Fernando Alonso Isn’t Officially Doing Le Mans For Toyota — Yet

There’s a very convincing looking fake Twitter account claiming that everybody’s favorite series-hopping Formula One driver Fernando Alonso is confirmed to drive for Toyota at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But don’t get your hopes up just yet—it’s an extremely well done gag.

The Mightiest Four-Cylinder Toyota Ever Made The Mightiest Four-Cylinder Toyota Ever Made

In the 1980s, Toyota began its most audacious push into the high-end side of the car world, racing V8 prototypes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and designing V8 Lexus sedans to take over America. But while that was happening, the company was also working on a little four-cylinder that would become arguably its greatest…

How The First Toyota Dealer In Florida Was Born Of Desperation And Fought Stereotypes To Survive How The First Toyota Dealer In Florida Was Born Of Desperation And Fought Stereotypes To Survive

One of Robert Zinn’s earliest memories is of riding around in the back with his two older brothers in a boxy economy car his father was trying to sell. The big sign mounted on the roof read “30 MPG,” but it was 1965 and gas was cheap, so nobody gave a damn. It was a perilous start to their father’s new business:…

It’s official: Toyota’s top-class LMP1 team is sticking around for the entire transitional World Endurance Championship “superseason,” which spans roughly a year and a half and ends with a second running of Le Mans.

Meh Car Monday: The Toyota Paseo, The Sports Car For People Who Consider Scrabble A Motor Sport Meh Car Monday: The Toyota Paseo, The Sports Car For People Who Consider Scrabble A Motor Sport

Sometimes, a car is meh because no one cared enough to make it more interesting. Sometimes, it’s meh because of a brutal campaign of blandization by innumerable committees and focus groups. In this case, the meh-ness stems from an actual attempt to de-meh a car, but that attempt was so half-assed that it actually…

The 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Is The Best Version Of An Honest Old Truck The 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Is The Best Version Of An Honest Old Truck

With five windows wide open and ocean breeze flowing through the cab, our 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro bounded over Pismo Beach’s dunes like a golden retriever in hot pursuit of a tennis ball. No special “sand mode.” No fancy forced induction. Just a snarling V8 and an overstuffed driver’s seat. And it felt so right.

The Toyota 86 (GT86 everywhere else in the world) is getting a new “GT” trim. While it does very little for performance, it make the little rear wheel drive coupe a little better to drive and a little more bearable when sitting in traffic.

Show Us Your Winter Cars Show Us Your Winter Cars

A good portion of the United States is under a blanket of snow at the moment but that doesn’t mean you have to stop driving. Sometimes you gotta hop in your older brother’s Honda CR-V and whip it around the empty cul-de-sac a few streets over while you “learn” how to drive in the snow. Everyone needs a winter beater…
