2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium l Review

2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0

If I never read another “Nice BMW” comment regarding the fifth generation Supra, I’ll end my time on this earth in peace. Why internet commentators believe that they have some insider knowledge that no one else has is beyond me. We know who makes it. However, that tension framed my most recent encounter with the […]

2022 Toyota GR86 Premium l Review

2022 Toyota GR86 Premium

I’ll say this up front, I was never a massive fan of the original FR-S/BRZ/86. Conceptually, sure I was all in. A light two door RWD coupe, yes please. However, in practice I just never came to love any of them, and it came down to one reason. Power. Sure, you can have massive fun […]

2022 Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax l Review

2022 Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax

The Toyota Tundra is a relative newcomer to the truck world, only having been around since the year 2000. The new millennium brought us Toyota’s replacement for the old T100 truck, the XK30/XK40 Tundra. An entire twenty two years later and we’re just now getting the third generation of Toyota’s full-size truck. That first generation […]

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro – Let’s Take Another Look!

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

Having just completed a week in the Toyota 4Runner reminds me of how I genuinely enjoy the analog experience. I remember several years ago, six, perhaps seven years actually, the last time I spent time with the 4Runner. I recall it being an honest vehicle. That remains true today. While the platform is quite old, […]

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro l Review

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

“Why are dinosaurs always green?” That line, posted to Twitter in response to a photo of this vehicle, stayed with me throughout the entire loan. I’ve been overly critical in my reviews about the lack of updates to Toyota’s more rugged vehicles like the Tacoma, Tundra, and the 4Runner. Mercifully the Tundra was updated for […]

2022 Toyota Tundra: A greatly improved pickup

2022 toyota tundra off road

Last week, I was in San Antonio to drive the 2022 Toyota Tundra. I shot a video for Autotrader, which you can watch below. But I wanted to pop it over here to add in some written talking points for those of you not eager to sit through a nearly 15-minute long video. The gist […]

2021 Toyota Venza Limited l Review

2021 Toyota Venza Limited

It is day 265 of the year 2021 A.D. and I just sat down to write about the twelfth crossover to end up in my driveway this year. I am trying to stay positive, but at first glance this Toyota Venza looked a bit like the last one, it was even the same color. However, […]

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime XSE Premium l Review

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime

I’d like to thank you all for tuning in once again into my slow but certain descent into the depths the crossover segment. It’s literally one after another, after another, after another, after another, and that’s just in the last month. A white CX-5 was replaced last week by a white Venza and my wife […]

2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid Platinum AWD | Road Trip Review

2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid Platinum AWD

Hey ya’ll, nothing says “hoon” like a minivan, am I right? However, in the automotive community, at least in the fringes of the Hooniverse, “cool” is relative. Nothing else would explain the cool factor that wagons and vans have around here. So, how does the minivan fit into our little corner of the world? Typically, […]

2021 Toyota Mirai: Major improvements to a niche machine

new toyota mirai

The 2021 Toyota Mirai is a good machine with an extremely limited market. It’s a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. And right now there are not a lot of places to fill it up. It’s only available for sale in California, in fact. But if demand for hydrogen rises and supply rises to meet it, Toyota […]
