By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The Toyota RAV4 compact crossover has been endowed with a mid-cycle refresh including styling updates that feature a sleeker looking front end; a new SE trim level that boasts sporty styling touches and a tuned suspension; and the addition of the Toyota Safety Sense system that includes forward collision warning, forward collision mitigation, and lane-departure warning and intervention. The frosting on the 2016 cake is a new hybrid model that offers stellar gas mileage measured at 34 mpg city, 31 highway and 33 combined.

Toyota Tacoma — An off-road champ

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The bottom line — If you like the previous-generation Toyota Tacoma you will almost certainly like the all-new 2016 edition.

Toyota has improved the Tacoma in numerous ways while retaining its unique flavor.

Toyota Prius — A more mature hybrid

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Because the Prius has become such a cultural institution (the synonym for gas/electric hybrid transportation since its introduction in the U.S. in 2001) Toyota faced a tough task in developing an updated model.

DANA POINT, Calif. — For those many hundreds of thousands of people who love their Prius hybrid, but feared Toyota's first all-new model since 2010 would alter their cherished eco-friendly transportation into something radically different, we say "fear not."

Has Toyota Motors reinvented the personal size SUV for consumers with the availability of the 2015 RAV4?

2016 Toyota Tacoma

SEATTLE, Wash. — Now ladies and gentleman please closely observe our final — and best — magic trick of the afternoon. Our driver is about to drive the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma into this huge pile of loose sand where he will bury the truck up to its axles.
