Filed under: Sedan , Recalls , Safety , Crossover , Toyota Toyota has announced a recall of roughly 20,000 vehicles covering the 2014 Avalon , Camry , Highlander (pictured) and Sienna , as well as the 2015 Lexus RX luxury crossover. The affected vehicles are all powered the 2GR-FE engine, which in layman’s terms, is Toyota’s well-regarded 3.5-liter V6. According to Toyota’s statement, a parts supplier might not have welded “the end cap on the right-hand fuel delivery pipe in the engine compartment” correctly, meaning fuel could leak. Leaking fuel, of course, increases the chance of an engine fire. That said, no fires, crashes or injuries have been reported due to the issue. Owners will be notified to report to dealers, where techs will check the fuel delivery pipe and fit a replacement part as necessary. Scroll down for the full statement from Toyota.

Filed under: Concept Cars , Hybrid , Paris Motor Show , Crossover , Toyota We’re now just a few weeks away from the start of the Paris Motor Show , and when the doors open at the Porte de Versailles, Toyota will be among the many automakers with new wares to show – including the new concept car pictured in this latest teaser image. Called the C-HR, the concept is designed to represent an “innovative vision for a compact crossover model”, incorporating “a new design language with an engaging driving experience and a hybrid powertrain.” The Japanese industrial giant isn’t saying much else, but the C-HR is set to debut alongside the finalized exterior design for its upcoming new fuel cell sedan. Toyota, of course, became a pioneer in the compact crossover segment when it introduced the first-generation RAV4 way back in 1994. If the silhouette is anything to go by, however, the C-HR concept appears to adopt a far more streamlined form. Watch this space for more.

Toyota Hilux successor spotted

Filed under: Spy Photos , Truck , Europe , Toyota The midsize truck segment is suddenly seemingly exploding with new vehicles worldwide, even here in North America. Not only will the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon be available very soon, Toyota is already testing a replacement for its aging Tacoma and Honda has promised a Ridgeline replacement within the next 18 months . Also, the recently shown Nissan Navara is said to portend the future of our Frontier . Here’s some more fresh evidence from Europe of this pickup boom with the next generation of its venerable Hilux in testing. Thanks to Top Gear and sometimes the evening news , the Hilux has built a reputation of being able to go just about anywhere. According to out spy shooter, this particular pickup was spotted during hot weather testing in southern Europe. Interestingly, a Volkswagen Amarok was along for the ride as a benchmark. Because the VW tends to offer a bit more comfort than the generally utilitarian Hilux, this could indicate Toyota is considering taking the new truck in a slightly comfier, more refined direction. Compared to the current model, this camouflaged tester sports a narrower front grille and headlights. The hood scoop is also absent here.

130,000 Toyota Tundra pickups recalled over airbag issue

September 13, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Truck , Recalls , Safety , Toyota Toyota is announcing a recall for about 130,000 examples of the 2014 Tundra Tundra pickup in Crew-Max Cab and Double Cab configurations. According to the company, the “garnish on the center pillars” inside the trucks might not have been installed correctly. If the vehicle were in an accident, the side curtain airbags could deploy in the wrong shape. Toyota says that it’s not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this potential problem. To fix the issue, the pickups will have their interior center pillars inspected, and if faulty, the pieces will be replaced. Obviously, this will be done at no cost to owners. Scroll down to read the full announcement.

Toyota Tundra ditches V6 for 2015

Toyota Tundra ditches V6 for 2015

September 13, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Truck , Toyota The Toyota Tundra debuted in new-ish form for the 2014 model year, but as we head into 2015, the truck boasts a couple of small updates. Most notably, the base V6 engine has been discontinued. On top of that, there’s the new TRD Pro model on offer for 2015, which we’ve told you about before . Why kill the V6? Simple – it was very low-volume. “The Tundra V6 take rate was significantly less than five percent,” a Toyota spokesperson confirmed via email to Autoblog . So for 2015, the two V8 engine options remain – a 4.6-liter unit with 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque, or the more powerful 5.7-liter powerplant with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive is standard. Four-wheel drive, of course, is available with either engine. The only other noteworthy changes for 2015 include an optional integrated trailer brake for the 5.7-liter models, a new rear under-seat tray storage system for Double Cab trucks, and a spray-in bed-liner.
