Toyota TRD Pro lineup coming next week

Filed under: Chicago Auto Show , Videos , Toyota , Off-Road A mysterious Toyota commercial recently popped up on YouTube teasing a new TRD Pro lineup for the Tundra , Tacoma and 4Runner , and now we’re getting our first official word straight from the automaker on the matter. Courtesy of its Facebook page , Toyota is promising that the TRD Pro models will be introduced on February 6th, ready to “conquer the great outdoors.” This date just so happens to mark the first day of the always-truck-friendly Chicago Auto Show , so while Toyota isn’t saying as much, we’re almost certain the trucks will show up next week in the Windy City. It’s not clear what sort of upgrades TRD Pro brings, but it definitely includes black wheels and a tweaked front end featuring a thick, single-bar grille and bold lettering in place of the stylized Toyota logo (shown above on the Tundra). Scroll down to see the video, and head over to Toyota’s Facebook page to see a teaser image of the 4Runner TRD Pro.

Filed under: Motorsports , Mitsubishi , Toyota , Specialty , Electric , Racing The third practice day of the 91st Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is done. While the other classes got running time on the middle and top sections of the course, qualifying times were set on the bottom section of the course for the Open, Open Wheel, Electric, Exhibition and Vintage classes. Everyone managed to keep it on the black stuff today, Greg Tracy setting the fastest time ahead of Hiroshi Masuoka, both men driving the Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution II four-wheel-drive prototype. Not even half a second behind Masuoka came Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima in his Monster Sport E-Runner, who has taken about 18 seconds off his time since the first practice day. Rod Millen was the fourth fastest on the day in his Toyota TMG EV POO2. Topping the Open Wheel class was Clint Vahsholtz, followed by Donner Billingsley, Andy Figueroa and Rodney O’Maley. The only driver in that class not to be given a time today was Dan Novembre. Kenshiro Gushi took the Exhibition class today as his Lexus IS F CCS-R made it up the mountain in 4:27.248, followed by Sage Marie in the Honda CR-Z at 5:19.591. Simon Pagenaud and his Honda Odyssey weren’t classified. Layne Schranz nabbed the top time for Pikes Peak Open runners in his 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo , Randy Schranz behind him in his Shelby Cobra, Jeff MacPherson right behind in his Porsche 914-8.

2014 Toyota Corolla shows just enough to keep us interested

2014 Toyota Corolla shows just enough to keep us interested

May 21, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Budget , Toyota To date, the best idea we have of what the 2014 Toyota Corolla will look like is the shape and styling of the Furia Concept from this year’s Detroit Auto Show . Obviously the compact car will turn down the wick a fair bit from that orange machine, and now we have one more scintilla of an idea of what the final product will look like. Published today on Toyota’s official Facebook page, the image above clearly shows the rear quarter of the 2014 Corolla S. Though the low angle is pretty wonky, we can make out that the shape of the taillight cluster is very similar to that of the Furia, albeit without the same LED treatment, A hint of a trunk-lid spoiler is also in evidence, and also follows the Furia’s lead. Toyota points out that the new Corolla will be shown in earnest on June 6. Expect to see the full version of the car by that date at the latest – online leaks have a tendancy to speed these things up. 2014 Toyota Corolla shows just enough to keep us interested originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 21 May 2013 13:28:00 EST.
