Toyota Brings It for SUVs This Year

Posted Friday, Jun 16, 2017 by North Hollywood Toyota

The Toyota Camry has been the Japanese automaker’s top-selling vehicle in the U.S. for the past 15 years. However, twice this year, the crossover SUV RAV4 has outsold the passenger vehicle. Post-recession growth in American auto sales has been driven by trucks and SUVs, most recently to the detriment of sales of passenger cars.

The highly valuable automaker Toyota is well positioned to respond to this new direction the market is taking, with a full slate of SUVs and crossovers in a wide variety of sizes and trim levels to best serve American consumers. With some recently implemented upgrades to factories and overtime hours for plant workers, Toyota is ready to build and sell the vehicles that the market wants.

So, get ready to see a lot of used cars for sale in Los Angeles, as people rush to their Los Angeles Toyota dealerships to pick up one of these new SUVs!


Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 is Toyota’s sleek, sophisticated crossover SUV, and it has become one of their hottest-selling vehicles, for good reason. It just takes one look at this car—one test drive, and you’ll be done with cheap used cars, Los Angeles. The RAV4 starts at a wallet-friendly $24,410 and is available as either a standard engine or a hybrid.

Whatever your lifestyle and needs, the RAV4 comes in a wide range of trim levels with optional packages for a vehicle you can truly customize and make your own. Each trim level is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, whether your needs are in the city or you’re a weekend adventurer.

Both the standard gasoline and the electric hybrid use a 2.5-ltr. inline-4 engine, which the hybrid model pairs to a powerful electric motor, a 204 cell nickel-metal hydride battery located under the rear seats, and Toyota’s electronically controlled continuously variable transmission system.

All trim levels are available with Toyota’s Safety Sense suite of electronic safety aids. The standard gasoline models get as much as 30 miles per gallon for the base model to 29 miles per gallon for the feature- and equipment-laden luxury Platinum trim level. The gasoline model also puts out 176 horsepower, while the hybrid version puts down an astounding 194 horsepower, while still getting up to 34 miles per gallon.


Toyota Highlander

The Highlander is a mid-size SUV offering from Toyota. Another model available as either a standard gasoline model or a hybrid, the Toyota Highlander combines cutting edge technology, a powerful engine, and a luxury interior with plenty of seating. With all trim levels available as either front or rear wheel drive, the Toyota Highlander can allow you to bring style, comfort, and luxury to any destination.

This is one mid-size crossover SUV that’s going to have people lining up at Toyota dealers, Southern California! Now might be a good time to research the best used car dealers in Los Angeles so you’ll have a place to sell your current vehicle when you buy a new Toyota Highlander.

The Toyota Highlander is available in eight different trim levels to suit your lifestyle and adventures. Both the standard and the hybrid come with a 3.5-ltr. V6 engine, with the AWD-only hybrid pairing that with an electric motor and eCVT transmission.

The standard model boasts an eight-speed transmission and a horsepower of 295, delivering an efficiency of up to 27 miles per gallon depending on your trim level and options. The electric hybrid puts out a staggering 306 horsepower. The Toyota Safety Sense system is available for all trim levels, giving you unparalleled safety and security when you’re out on the road.


Toyota 4Runner

Toyota’s legendary 4Runner is a mid-size SUV that can take on whatever the outdoors can throw at it without missing a step. A true off-roading machine for the thrill-seeking adventurers among us, the 4Runner blends power, adaptability, and technology into a package that’s truly a delight to drive, whether you’re tooling around town, or out crushing canyon trails.

It is available in three trim levels, the SR5, the Limited, and the Toyota Racing Development-badged Trail, or TRD Off-Road, and also the TRD Pro. Each trim level comes with a 4-ltr. V6 engine, cranking out an astounding 270 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the SR5, with the higher trim levels coming fully equipped with 4-wheel drive. This power doesn’t come at too much cost, however, and fuel efficiency reaches as high as 21 miles per gallon, depending on your trim level and packages.

The TRD Off-Road and Off-Road Premium represent the ultimate expression of off-road capability in a stock vehicle, with improved ground clearance, dynamic suspension, and crawl control. The Premium loads you up with more extras and comforts, letting you conquer the outdoors in style, with a premium sound system and comfort-trimmed seats.

The TRD Pro is engineered for street performance and is guaranteed to turn heads no matter where you go. 17-inch matte black alloy wheels come standard, as well as shocks tuned for sport by the gearheads at Toyota Racing Development. It’s even available in a unique color, which will pair nicely with the TRD badging that’s sure to make everyone jealous.


Toyota Sequoia

The Sequoia is Toyota’s full-size SUV offering, based on their Tundra truck platform. With plenty of seating, a powerful engine, and three trim levels, the Sequoia is perfect for taking on an adventure with your family, in both style and comfort. Starting at $45,560, this is one full-size SUV that won’t break the bank, letting you focus on what’s really important: The adventures you’ll have and the destinations you’ll reach.

With seating for 8, a 5.7-ltr. V8 engine, 381 horsepower, and a max towing capacity of over 7,000 lbs. on both the rear and all-wheel-drive trims, along with a trailer sway control system, the Toyota Sequoia can easily and comfortably pack up your family, equipment, and whatever else you need to bring along with you into the great outdoors.

While the basic trim level of the SR5 still packs plenty of great features, the Sequoia truly shines at the Limited and Platinum trim levels. The additional features and design touches elevate the Sequoia from a workhorse SUV with tons of room to a truly luxurious driving machine, with additions like perforated leather ventilated and heated seats, premium audio systems, and safety features like blind spot monitoring and lane change assist.


Toyota Land Cruiser

This is Toyota’s original SUV, the timeless icon and legendary off-roader. Today’s Land Cruiser combines capability on the trail with unparalleled luxury and comfort. Turn heads in the city while still being able to drive out into the wilderness and blaze a trail through even the roughest terrain.

V8 engine, 8-speed transmission, and robust, finely engineered suspension make sure you have plenty of power but still enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride, no matter what conditions you’re driving over.

With over 8,000 lbs. of towing capability, bringing your boat, trailer, or power sports vehicles along with you—in addition to your friends and family in the spacious, 8-passenger luxury—will definitely be no problem.

For a vehicle that combines finely honed engineering with style and luxury, look no further than the Toyota Land Cruiser. It’s an SUV that proves power and capability do not have to come at the cost of comfort and striking good looks.
