New Year and New Toyota!

The good news for Toyota is that profits are back and last year is in the rear-view mirror. People are actually looking for things like a Toyota Tacoma for sale. But, the competition is more fierce than ever before and not just in North America but around the world as well. Toyota can’t bank on reliability alone to sell cars and trucks as the gap is tight with their rivals. It appears they got the memo and are starting to produce some better looking vehicles which should help the bottom line even more.

TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. predicts surging North American sales will deliver its highest profit in five years, as the carmaker rapidly rebounds from last year’s natural disasters.

North American sales are seen climbing 25 percent to 2.35 million vehicles in the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

Sales in Toyota’s second-biggest market slid 7.8 percent to 1.87 million units in the just-ended fiscal year, as an earthquake in Japan and flooding in Thailand crimped supply. But North America remained one of the company’s more profitable regions despite the decline and is poised for growth.

Revived North American sales will power Toyota to near record global sales of 8.7 million vehicles this fiscal year, Japan’s largest carmaker said today in its annual earnings presentation.

Toyota’s worldwide sales peaked at 8.91 million vehicles, on a fiscal year basis, in the 12 months ended March 31, 2008.

2012 Toyota Prius v review on Bullz-Eye

Bullz-Eye.com reviews the 2012 Toyota Prius V!

As hybrids become more popular in the marketplace the choices are also getting better for consumers. The Toyota Prius V is another breakthrough for hybrids, offering a ton of space and excellent fuel efficiency.

Exterior
You can quickly recognize the Prius V as a member of the Prius Hybrid family, and the striking Barcelona Red paint with real spoiler made this wagon a looker. While keeping air resistance low, Toyota didn’t sacrifice styling as the flush surface from the front of the vehicle through the front pillar works with side “aerocorners” for exceptionally clean airflow. Our test model sported LED headlights with auto level control, auto on/off feature front fog lamps, and power folding and heated side mirrors. The combination of the sleek design and 17-inch alloy wheels make for an attractive exterior on the 2012 Prius V.

2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4×4 review on Bullz-Eye

Bullz-Eye.com reviewed the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4×4. Check out what they said about the ride below!

There is simply no mistaking the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4X4 on the road, and for those that own these modern day Tonka Trucks, I’m sure that puts a smile on your face. Toyota took a chance with the FJ Cruiser with the dynamic styling, and when you consider how conservative Toyota has been in the past, it’s a good step forward.

Exterior
Our test model was decked out with 17-inch steel alloy wheels, two-toned paint in Army Green and white roof top, black bumpers with metallic silver trim, black over-fenders with integrated mudguards, silver trim door handles and mirrors, skid plates, power outside mirrors with illuminated markers, rear privacy glass, running boards, daytime running lights, engine transfer case and tow hooks with two front and one rear. Toyota embraced the styling from the iconic FJ40 4×4 utility vehicle which is well known for safaris and serious off-road capabilities. The look of the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4X4 celebrates the spirit of the FJ40 with features including a front grille with two round, five-inch headlights reminiscent of the FJ40’s frontal styling; the hood and fender contours; and a rear-mounted and exposed full-size spare tire with an off-center license plate mount. The overall look of the FJ Cruiser is top of the line in the cool department!
