2017 Toyota Celica

The recently announced 2017 Toyota Celica is going to bring back what some old school fans have been waiting for to see. The new model is going to refer back to the familiar brand that the Celica was and show us what it represented to the buyers before. Its performance and comfort features have always been one of the basis of the car and the new one is not going to be an exception.

The Toyota 86 model was supposed to be the spiritual successor of the car. But things did not work in the same manner as everybody was expected. Thus the time came to bring back the Celica brand in its original form. The model is certainly going to be an interesting new addition to the Toyota roster and will bring some more excitement to the segment as well. The fans of the brand are certainly going to be happy to see an old face return.

What the competition thinks about this is yet to be determined, it is certainly not a fun fact to see another competitor in the segment if you are a rivaling company. It might make certain shifts and on the other hand it might not. All of this still needs to be proven and we are in for an interesting new period. This is the main reason why we have compiled our review and have mainly based it on the released pictures and currently available information about the 2017 Toyota Celica.


Exterior Appearance

The exterior of the 2017 Toyota Celica is going to differ compared to the previous models. The idea is to make the car more contemporary looking and to adapt it to the current market as best as possible. But at the same time they still plan to keep the legendary and hallmark details that the car has had. The most obvious part is the redesigned bumper to the front end of the car which is going to add new footlights which are going to be an integrated part of it now.

You can expect to see the car surrounded by HID reflector-beam headlights, and it is also going to be packed with standard LED daytime running lights and automatic high beam as well. The car also wants to make the performance for the car better and allow more breathing room for the engine. They are planning to do that by adding some more air intakes for the car. The hood design is going to be a bit different as well and will add far less changes compared to other parts of the car.

The rear end of the car is going to add LED taillights and will also feature a large spoiler as well. Also, one of the most important parts is the materials that are going to be used. In this case they are opting for far lighter materials which all the rivaling models are already using. This will add better fuel consumption rates and also make the performance of the car a lot better.


Interior Design

The inside of the 2017 Toyota Celica is supposed to go through a number of changes as well. These are also going to be aesthetic and comfort enhancing. The car is mainly going to take a big departure from the design that we have seen before and witnessed so far. The materials which are going to be added inside are top notch and exemplify a very comfortable and luxury like feel for the Celica now. Metal inserts and chrome accents are providing contrast features and make everything look sharper and far more luxurious looking.

As all the other new Toyota cars, so will the 2017 Celica come with some gadgets and impotents. Expect to get the heated seats and also Wireless and USB slots. The updated infotainment system is supposed to provide you with fun and will enable the ride to go a lot smoother than it naturally would. It also comes with a touchscreen which allows you to operate the car in the maximum setting.


Engine and Performance

Under the hood of the 2017 Toyota Celica is going to be a advanced 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder tube engine. This model is enough to provide you with power and maneuvering capability that the car is used to having. the model will benefit a lot from the given model and will allow for a great and quality car. The estimated output for the model is now 235 HP to 258 HP which is going to allow it to be head to head with some of the competing vehicles in the market. The EPA ratings for this model are calculated at  27 mpg in the town and 30 mpg on road and are owed mostly to the use of 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic CVT transmission with paddle shifters on steering wheel.


Release Date and Price

The car has been slotted for a 2017 release and we can expect to see the 2017 Toyota Celica by middle of the year. Although, the major of specs for the engine are already available and the car has received all the necessary treatments and details we cannot expect to get the car sooner than that. The car makes its debut early in the year by being showcased at certain auto shows but the release date is officially somewhere in the middle of the year when it is available for sale as well.

The price for the car starts at around 20,000 USD which is also a competitive one being right in the contention with the rivaling cars in the market.



2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Toyota is releasing its 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser as one of the revived vehicles for the upcoming season. Toyota could not lay to rest their FJ Cruiser brand and will rehash it for another period. The model is going to have all the makings of the classic model and will subsequently been updated with the newest and most necessary contemporary features. The modal now portrays all the things which were missing in the past models as the update is here to address some past failures.

The original FJ Cruiser was introduced to the audience in 2003 and lasted for around a decade. The model was actually not a success at first but with some time and a lot of enthusiasts the model started selling. But the numbers have slowly dropped over the years which lead for the car to unofficially being discontinued with the 2014 model. Unofficially was correct as the 2017 will be another attempt to bring back the vehicle to the mainstream market.

What the previous models have done for the brand is not that a lot and the sales have significantly declined for the last model. The 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser is going to attempt to bring back the brand to its rightful path. It is projected that fans of the model and car enthusiast will be happy to see it back for another run. But the car needs to attract much more audiences in order to address the sales problems. That is way the remodeling has been done in a modernistic way and it was seen from the early released photos in which direction they are going.


Here is a review about the return of the FJ Cruiser which will tell you that you need to know about the car.

2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser Exterior Update

For the exterior of their 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser design, the makers of the car went for something a little bit traditional. The model will certainly be much more appealing to the original fans of the car and also the people who have already gotten used to the appearance. We are seeing a squared look with the traditional squared SUV look. It does manage to look a little bit hostile and aggressive than before and this is what the modern updates bring to the table. The side wings of the car have been completely redesign and the same thing goes for the headlights of the car. It also manages to adopt a slimmer figure compared to before and this is something that a lot of new fans will like seeing in their FJ Cruiser design.


The model is also designed to add a lot of pieces which are going to help it become a better all-terrain vehicle. There are some elements added, like better protection for the tires, that is going to help the car gain a better potential when treading the roads less traveled. The stability of the car is great and the maneuvering is also well balanced and the car does not have any problems when being set on different kinds of terrains. But the structure of the car is a bit heavy which might affect a lot of parts for the car. Although it helps the safety and also manages to help the car achieve some feats that otherwise would be unattainable, the fuel economy and other driving characteristics would have been a lot better with some lighter materials used.

Interior Changes


The inside of the 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser is supposed to address issues that the previous model had. The look of the inside was considered as being a bit outdated. The car has not look well for long time already and it was supposed to bring forth an updated a long time already. But unfortunately, not much is done to update the car’s look on the inside and we get something similar that we had before. The design is almost the same with some updates addressing the comfort and the entertainment of the vehicle.

Now there are going to be some added elements which are supposed to make the car be a bit more modern. The additions are going to include new durable materials which are soft and comfortable for this kind of a model. Also some comfort features like heating and cooling is made as well as entertainment though a completely new touchscreen display. The changes made could do a lot of good but we feel it is not enough to spark the car for a better grade.


Powertrain Capability

Under the hood we actually have more options for the 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser. The base version is the four liter V6 engine which can easily make  260 horsepower with a torque of 271 pounds per feet.  The secondary engine is actually a revamped version of the base option and is made to bring more power and can produce 280 horsepower and a torque of 290 pounds per feet.  These two engines, although they bring a lot of power they do not manage to help with the fuel mileage, which might affect the overall car. There is a third version which is the supercharged four liter V6 system  that can make 320 horsepower and a torque of 400 pounds per feet and is the strongest option, but it too does not offer favorable specs in terms of fuel economy. All of the engines are matted to a  six speed manual transmission which sends the power to  a four-wheel drive system.


Release Date and Price

The news about the release date of the 2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser is going to be made soon. But we do know that the car is going to be available by mid-2017 when the sales are set to start. In order to own this car you have to be ready to spend  $39,990 for its base MSRP price.

2016 Toyota Prius

2016 Toyota Prius Release Date, Mpg, Price, Specs -The current generation of the Toyota Prius in the market is more than six years old and considering the pace at which they replace their models, we should therefore expect them to release a new model before the close of the year.

Insofar as we know, there exist plans for a 2016 Toyota Prius which according to industry experts will not have any massive redesign over the previous model in terms of fuel consumption and styling.

The biggest change that prospecting buyers should look forward to is the new modular platform which the auto motor is also going to use on other upcoming models.

The new platform to be used will go a long way in ensuring prices are brought down due to reduction in manufacturing costs. The interior of the new 2016 Toyota Prius will be developed to a premium one over the current small family hatchback.

Both the design and layout of the car are expected to give the new Prius an edge over its growing competition. For the first time in a Prius model, we are going to have a massive panoramic roof and ventilated seats.

2016 Toyota Prius exterior

The exterior of the new 2016 Toyota Prius is expected to change but we don’t know to what extent as yet. Bearing in mind their latest cars and the Mirai, buyers should expect a more assertive Prius.

Although it is going to receive much inspiration from the Mirai, the highly assertive lines are going to be redesigned in order to give the car a slightly more conservative design.

2016 Toyota Prius engine

Engine wise, we should expect the new 2016 Toyota Prius to have a similar 1.8L naturally aspirated inline 4 engine just as before. However, the engine will have a new type of cylinders lining which will result the Prius in using 5% less fuel.

Combining that fuel save and around 6-9% from the electric motor engine should easily give you 60 mpg on average which would be a first ever from a gasoline powertrain. Moreover, buyers should expect a new hybrid system which will use nickel made batteries for the plug-in motor.

That will enable a fuel economy of 55 mpg on average which is quite impressive.

2016 Toyota Prius price and release date

As aforementioned, the new 2016 Toyota Prius platform will change but the engine will remain mostly the same. Most changes from our spy photos indicate that the interior is the single most part that is expected to host major changes.
