Toyota Camry

Despite many redesigns, Toyota has kept the Camry around for many years. Additionally, it has remained a top-selling vehicle for 12 years in a row. The Camry has developed a reputation of trust, comfort, and high-quality that is still around today. Its eighth generation and most recent line today includes advanced safety features with Toyota Safety Sense and a new design that is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture Platform.

Toyota Prius

The Toyota Prius was one of the first hybrid vehicles to make a debut in 2001. Although Toyota continues to upgrade and remodel the Prius, it is still a driver favorite. Recent models are more efficient than ever, and affordability remains consistent and is one of the best parts of the vehicle. The Prius has also opened the door for other hybrids but is still one of the most-chosen hybrids on the road. It also holds the title as one of the cleanest cars on the road today.

Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra was the first Toyota full-size truck and was initially released in 2000. At the time, this was a difficult sector to break into, but the Tundra was not a disappointment. It gave drivers a bold interior design that was often forgotten in similar, durable full-sized trucks. It boasts an impressive 10,500 maximum towing weight and a maximum payload of 2,060 pounds. The Tundra has since been upgraded with current technology and interior improvements but holds a similar platform.

Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna was cool before minivans were an acceptable form of transportation. Although it was first released before the 21st century in 1997, it is still around today. It replaced the Previa van and was one of the smallest minivans at the time. Today, it has been redesigned and now features exceptional cargo space. Now on the third generation, the Sienna has all of the exciting interior features of a luxury vehicle. It is also one of the only minivans in the country with an available AWD option.

Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 was the first compact crossover SUV. It was first released in North America in 1995 and is still around today. However, the RAV4 has taken on a significant facelift. It was originally designed for compact car drivers that wanted additional cargo space. Today, it has more space than ever imagined. In fact, the third generation it is now on boasts a 21 percent increase in volume over the second generation RAV4. It also comes with a series of advanced safety features.

Toyota has been a consistent competitor in the auto sales market. Many of their vehicles have held onto the Toyota reputation of reliability and safety. Stop by our dealer today to view a full inventory of available Toyota cars.
