Toyotathon Is On!

Toyotathon is on at Royal Palm Toyota! Running all the way to the beginning of the new year, we’re offering the very best that Toyota has to offer for the brand new 2018 model year! This holiday season is sure to be a great one, so it is the perfect time to upgrade to a new Toyota vehicle that speaks to you and your unique personality. Here are some of Royal Palm Toyota‘s top picks for your new 2018 ride – fit with style, comfort, and performance.

2018 Toyota RAV4

For Toyota models, trim levels package features in a cost-effective way to make it easy for the consumer to pick which price point and model would best suit their lifestyle and budget. For example, the base-model RAV4 LE could prove more than enough for any minimalistic buyer only needing the bare essentials, while the top-of-the-line RAV4 Limited would cater more to those needing every bell and whistle to keep them satisfied on a daily basis. For any consumers with an active lifestyle, it could be a little tricky picking the right RAV4 trim level, until now. The new Toyota RAV4 Adventure features some new outdoor-themed upgrades with a sportier sense of style. The Adventure model comes equipped with large fender flares, black 18-inch wheels, a racing stripe, and durable lower body cladding to increase durability during light off-road driving. It sits about half an inch higher, too, which leads to just a little extra ground clearance over the other RAV4 models.

2018 Toyota Camry

The new 2018 Toyota Camry is taking a large step in the right direction with its bold styling that is taking the midsize sedan category by storm. The Camry’s wheelbase has been lengthened by 2 inches, giving a more imposing look as well as providing more interior room. The lowered hood and broad front fascia make a large fashion statement, and the optional 19-inch wheels further assist in buyer customization. All of these factors lead to a sleek and sexier design, giving the Camry a bolder presence in the market and on the streets. There are 10 different trim levels available including the hybrid variants, ranging from the base model Camry L up to the well-equipped XSE V6. The more budget-friendly L model includes some great options like Toyota’s Entune and standard power features, while the options list gets broader the farther up the trim level ladder you go, adding more features like larger, sportier design elements, power adjustable seats, and Smart Key entry.

2018 Toyota C-HR

C-HR stands for “Coupe High-Rider,” accurately describing Toyota’s low-slung compact SUV that sits a little higher than the typical compact car and boasts the storage flexibility and dimensions of a small SUV. It also has enough standard safety and entertainment features to keep the most discerning consumer happy. The review website Parkers.co.uk also approves of the C-HR, as it just crowned the small SUV “New Car of the Year 2018.” The team applauded the Toyota C-HR’s bold design, hybrid ingenuity, and driving dynamics. According to the website, “the Toyota C-HR is a brilliant example of how the most functional of family cars can be spiced up with exciting detail, thoughtful touches, and intelligent design to become a true gamechanger.”

Satisfy Your Taste for the Rugged with the 2018 Toyota Tacoma

When a sedan or SUV won’t do the trick for your demanding lifestyle, you’ll need a vehicle that can keep pace. Look no further than the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. This powerhouse pickup is ready to hit the road, no matter where it takes you.

Potent Engine Options

You have several engine choices when it comes to your new Tacoma. The stock engine is a 2.7-liter inline-four that produces 180 lb-ft of torque and 159 horsepower. However, if you’re going to be using your truck to tote or tow around a lot of gear, consider upgrading to the 3.5-liter V6 engine, which puts out an impressive 265 lb-ft of torque and 278 horsepower.

As for transmissions, you’ll have your choice of a six-speed automatic or manual that can be paired with either rear- or four-wheel drive.

Powerful Towing and Payload

Chances are, you’ll be using your truck to tow around heavy construction or recreational equipment. At its maximum towing capacity, the Tacoma can pull 6,800 pounds, meaning you’ll have no issues carrying around the heaviest of machines. If you choose the four-wheel drive option, you’ll get a still-impressive 6,500-pound limit.

However, your equipment won’t always be dragging behind your truck. In many cases, you’ll want to load up your bed. With a max payload of 1,620 pounds, the Tacoma should offer you no problems when it comes to transporting your goods.

Safety on the Road

You want your vehicle to always be safe, which is why Toyota has added its Toyota Safety Sense-P™ features to the Tacoma. These include a number of active safety tools, including adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, automatic high beams, and lane-departure warning.

Jump into the Commodious 2018 Toyota RAV4

Whether you need a vehicle to tote around your family or to carry all of your fishing supplies, the 2018 RAV4 is the perfect compact SUV for you. With plenty of safety features, tons of cargo space, and comfort and technology features, the RAV4 will satisfy your need for a reliable SUV for daily use.

Safety Features

When you climb inside the RAV4, you can rest assured that safety is paramount. All trims come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ suite of features. These include lane departure alert with steering assist, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic cruise control, and automatic high beams. There’s also an included Star Safety system, as well as optional features like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alerts, and a bird’s eye view camera.

With all of these features and LED headlights, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 was ranked as a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS. While the 2018 version hasn’t been rated yet, chances are it will be just as good.

Cargo Space

The RAV4 comfortably fits five people, meaning it’s a great choice for toting your friends around town. However, if you are more interested in toting bags or equipment, the 60/40 split rear seats allow for a total of 73.4 cubic feet of space. There’s even an included cargo net hammock that keeps your items securely in place, even on the roughest terrains.

Technology

What’s a modern SUV without some interior conveniences? You’ll enjoy heated and power-adjustable front seats, HomeLink technology to control your home security system while on the road, and either Entune Premium Audio or Entune Premium JBL Audio.

Holiday Gifts for Your Car

The holidays are here, and you’ve finally finished packing the last present! You’ve assembled gifts for everyone–kids, friends, spouses, parents, in-laws, and teachers–and for that, you deserve kudos. But there may be someone you’re forgetting: your vehicle. Your vehicle works hard all day, every day, and the holiday season is as good a time as any to give it a little upgrade!

Backup Camera

A backup camera is a great way to make your vehicle even safer–and put your mind at ease while you’re doing it. Available at a range of prices, a backup camera can attach to the back of your car and feed you an image of what’s happening behind your vehicle as you back the car up. It’s an excellent safety feature, one that ensures that you will have a clear picture of what’s going on behind your vehicle. If you’re interested in getting one for your vehicle, you can chat with the team at Royal Palm Toyota about what would be best for your car, or you can check out a few options here.

Cleaning

One quick, easy way to spruce up your vehicle is to treat it to a wash and vacuum! Once it’s shiny and clean, you can go through the items in the car, getting rid of anything that you don’t need to carry with you everywhere. If you’re really feeling the love, you can even consider getting your car detailed, so that it feels brand-new.

Upgrade Your Sound System

If you can’t stand to be anywhere without your music, then an epic car radio is an absolute must. But the process of upgrading your sound system might seem a little daunting at first. If you’d like to expand your music, podcast, audiobook, or Bluetooth options, then you may want to talk to the folks at Royal Palm Toyota. Make a list of your audio must-haves, whether that’s Bluetooth, Sirius XM radio, or any other feature you’re hoping for, and the team will be able to help you out.

No matter how you celebrate the holiday season this year, the team at Royal Palm Toyota wishes you and yours a good one. Happy holidays from our family to yours.

Toyota Announces New Driver Technology Research Projects

Toyota has always been a big proponent of driver safety, establishing the Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) in January 2011. This group is made up of various universities and hospitals across the country that assist with projects to make the road a safer place for everyone. The next projects that this coalition will be working on focus on the relationship between a driver and emerging vehicle technologies and we at Royal Palm Toyota can’t wait to tell you all about them!

Overall, eight different research institutions in the United States will work on a total of 11 different projects as a part of CSRC Next. CSRC Next is a special five-year initiative dedicated to embracing future technologies in the driving experience.

While each project will focus on something different, they will follow four main tracks. One will look into the integration of passive and active safety systems to personalize how a car reacts in the event of a crash. Another will investigate the driver-vehicle relationship and determine ways to make advanced technologies more socially acceptable. Some projects will focus on detecting the physiology and health of the driver to estimate how safe it is for them to take the wheel. Lastly, researchers will try to develop algorithms to learn about naturalistic driving data.

Researchers at CSRC are excited about the new efforts, including Director Chuck Gulash.

“Autonomous and connected vehicle technologies are only just beginning to transform the transportation landscape,” said Gulash in a statement. “By working together with world-renowned institutions and making our results public, we are proud to help realize the promise of advanced mobility solutions and a safe, convenient transportation future.”

Overall, CSRC Next will spend $35 million on the research in an effort to safely transition the world to future mobility technologies.

Hybrid or Conventional Model – Which Camry Is Right for You?

The Toyota Camry has always been a consumer favorite, holding the distinction of being the best-selling car in America for the past 15 years. Now, with a hot redesign for 2018, the new Camry has a striking new look, cutting-edge safety, and superior drive characteristics.

The only question that remains is which Camry to buy – a hybrid or a conventional, gasoline-powered model? Here are some factors to consider from Royal Palm Toyota.

Trims

The Camry Hybrid is available in three trim levels, while the traditional Camry has seven, including two engine options. In terms of price, the base hybrid will cost more than the base non-hybrid, whereas a top-level hybrid has a lower base price than the high-line XSE V-6 traditional Camry.

Style and Features

Both models have comfortable seats with plenty of room. The top trim levels on the conventional Camry, however, have a wider variety of luxury options, including red leather.

Both offer a full suite of safety systems and the Entune™ infotainment system, but the Hybrid offers some more advanced options like a surround-view camera.

Performance

The traditional Camry has two engine options: a 203-horsepower four-cylinder and a 301-horsepower V-6. The hybrid powertrain puts out a combined 208 horsepower, more than most other hybrid sedans. The traditional Camry has sportier handling, but the ride quality is smooth, quiet, and comfortable in equal measures for both models. In terms of acceleration, the conventional V-6 wins out.

Fuel Economy

While the conventional Camry is one of the most fuel-efficient sedans available, the hybrid is an easy winner here. It is rated at 51 mpg city/53 highway (44/47 in the higher trim). The four-cylinder gets 28 city mpg and 39 highway; the V-6 is rated at 22/32 mpg, city vs. highway.

Ultimately, both Camrys have seen significant upgrades. They are very similar in terms of style and comfort, and the deciding purchase factor will be fuel efficiency and drive character. Come in to Royal Palm Toyota to determine which Camry is the best fit for you.

Toyota Corolla Holds Its Own vs. Big Brother Camry

Crossovers may be all the rage, and the new Toyota Camry has been getting attention for its extensive redesign, but Corolla remains the best-selling Toyota nameplate of all time. Now in its 52nd year of production, Corolla got a redesign of its own for the last model year. New upgrades for 2018 include illuminated visor vanity mirrors on all models and steering wheel upgrades for XLE and SE grade levels. Royal Palm Toyota wants you to check it out today.

Part of Corolla’s success can be attributed to its variety of trims, six in all, that cover the gamut of tastes and needs. Models include L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE. What they all have in common is a sporty, sophisticated look, a quiet ride, and comfort that rivals what you find in larger sedans.

In fact, Corolla compares very favorably with Toyota sibling Camry in several areas. Pricewise, a top-line Corolla will cost a bit less than a basic Camry. And Corolla’s redesign includes a standard suite of safety features.

Even the most basic Corolla, the L trim level, is well equipped with the features that today’s drivers find most desirable: USB connectivity, backup camera, Bluetooth, power windows and locks, split folding seats, and Entune Audio with a 6.1-inch display screen. The most popular trim, LE, gets remote keyless entry and upgraded interior materials. There’s no compromising on comfort or convenience with the Corolla.

All Corollas are powered by a four-cylinder engine to achieve combined fuel economy ratings in the low 30s. Similarly powered Camrys rate a bit higher in highway MPG, but if you opt for a V-6 to move the larger Camry, Corolla becomes the clear winner. Corolla is slightly smaller than Camry but still provides ample room for passengers and cargo.

If you’re looking for all the style and comfort of a Camry but looking to save a little money, the Corolla is worth a drive. Visit Royal Palm Toyota to compare for yourself.
