Sedans and pickups receive the bulk of the changes, while compacts and sport utility vehicles remain mostly unchanged

2011 Toyota ModelsHistory
Toyota Motor Corporation was founded in Japan in the late 1930s. The company traces its earliest roots to 1937, when Kiichiro Toyoda launched a new automotive division of Toyota Industries called Toyota Motor Corporation. Its first passenger car was called the Toyota "AA." Initially, the company's passenger car sales were rather slow. As a result, the nascent automaker focused its efforts on the production of commercial vehicles, namely trucks and buses.

Things started to change in 1945, when post-war Japan called on Toyota to change its direction and ramp-up production of passenger cars. A decade later, the company was producing nearly 8,400 automobiles per year. Even as sales were on the rise, Toyota didn't expand immediately. It wasn't until 1957 that the company opened its North American headquarters. It took the company several more years, and the introduction of the Toyota Corona in 1964, for sales to catch on in the U.S. market.

In 1989, Toyota launched a completely new luxury brand, called Lexus, to capitalize on its earned success. One decade later, the company launched Scion, to attract a younger audience to its model range. Toyota is now one of the world's largest automakers.

Today, Toyota manufactures a variety of passenger automobiles and sport utility vehicles. These include coupes, convertibles, sedans and SUVs with up-to-8-passenger seating capacities. Models include those with front-, rear-, and all-wheel drive with gasoline and hybrid powertrains. Toyota vehicles are manufactured in Japan and North America and sold around the world.

For More Information:

2011 Toyota 4Runner

2011 Toyota 4Runner

The Toyota 4Runner was introduced in 1984. The first-generation model was simply a Toyota pickup truck with two rows of seating and a fiberglass top. The second-generation model arrived in 1990. Unlike its predecessor, the new 4Runner had a fixed steel roof, but it was still a pickup truck right down to the shared 2.4-liter and 3.0-liter engines.

The third-generation model arrived in 1996. In a major departure from earlier models, the new 4Runner didn't share its mechanicals with a pickup; it was sharing platforms with the Japanese Land Cruiser Prado. More luxurious than its predecessors, yet still capable off-road, the 4Runner wasn't replaced until the fourth-generation arrived in 2003.

The current, fifth-generation 4Runner debuted for the 2010 model year. It shares its truck roots with the Toyota FJ Cruiser, yet offers suspension, powertrains and appointments more commonly found in luxury sport utility vehicles.

Highlights:

  • Carryover for 2011

2011 Toyota Avalon

2011 Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon is a full-size sedan that debuted, in first-generation guise, for the 1995 model year. The largest sedan in the automaker's lineup, the original Avalon was based on a stretched Toyota Camry platform. It shared that model's front-wheel-drive architecture and 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The second-generation model arrived for the 2000 model year. While it was still based on a lengthened Camry platform, the Avalon shared engines with the Toyota Sienna and Lexus RX 300 models.

Now in its third generation, last redesigned for the 2005 model year, the Avalon has moved upscale with enhanced styling and a wood-trimmed interior. In 2008, Toyota updated the Avalon's transmission with a new 6-speed unit, improved the braking system, and updated the exterior and option packages. For 2011-the seventh year of this platform-Toyota is treating the Avalon to a refresh including a new front fascia, new dashboard console, and updated electronics.

2011 Toyota Camry

2011 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry is a midsize sedan. Originally developed as a 4-door variant of the Celica, the first Camry arrived in 1983. Unlike today's midsize iteration, the first-generation model was a compact boxy sedan with a 91-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.

Fast forward nearly thirty years, and the Camry is now in the middle of its eighth generation. One of Toyota's mainstream models, the 5-passenger Camry is offered with a range of powerplants. Standard models are fitted with a 4-cylinder engine, but a more powerful 6-cylinder is also available.

Lastly, Toyota also offers this Camry platform as a hybrid model (using Toyota's "Hybrid Synergy Drive"), with a gasoline-electric powerplant under the hood of the sedan. Completely redesigned for the 2007 model year, the Camry receives only minor changes for 2011.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Five models: Camry, Camry LE, Camry SE, Camry XLE and Camry Hybrid

2011 Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla is a subcompact sedan. On sale since the 1960s, the current Corolla is now in its tenth generation, last redesigned for the 2009 model year. One of the automaker's smallest offerings, the Corolla is sold as a fuel-efficient sedan with a standard 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. A choice of transmissions (manual and automatic) is offered.

Just three years into its model cycle, Toyota has updated its Corolla with new front and rear facades, and new safety equipment. The new safety features are packaged into what the automaker calls its "Star Safety System," which includes vehicle stability control (VSC), traction control (TRAC), anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and brake assist. It also features the standard Smart Stop Technology brake-override system. All of this is standard across the model range. In addition, Toyota is offering the Corolla with Toyota Care Complimentary Maintenance Plan at no extra charge in 2011.

2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser

2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a compact SUV with retro styling that was first introduced in 2007. Sharing platforms with the Toyota 4Runner, the FJ Cruiser is styled after the original FJ40 Land Cruiser that was sold in the 1960s. The FJ Cruiser is engineered for rugged off-road use, thanks to its high ground clearance, available 4-wheel-drive system, and standard locking rear differential. Last year, Toyota upgraded the 4.0-liter V-6 engine for more power and efficiency and introduced a new off-road option called the "Trail Teams Special Edition Package" (designed to better equip the FJ for off-pavement driving). Toyota also offers a "TRD" package that includes unique 16-inch wheels, BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires, and special Bilstein shock absorbers.

For the 2011 model year, Toyota has made minor changes to the FJ Cruiser. These include a special-edition color choice, upgraded audio systems, and the (previously mentioned) standard locking rear differential to improve performance in low-traction conditions.

Highlights:

  • Minor refresh for 2011
  • Three models: FJ Cruiser 4X2 AT, FJ Cruiser 4X4 MT and FJ Cruiser 4X4 AT

2011 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander is a midsize crossover that shares platforms with the Toyota Camry sedan and Toyota Sienna minivan. Unlike the truck-based 4Runner, the gasoline- and hybrid-powered Highlander models offer car-like rides with front- or all-wheel-drive drivetrains. Now in its second generation, the Highlander was last redesigned for the 2008 model year.

The 2011 model sees many changes. It receives a new front fascia, hood and fenders. There are redesigned headlights and tail lamps, and new 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside the cabin, there is also upgraded equipment and technology. These include a 50/50-split third-row seating area, rear climate controls and an enhanced audio system.

Highlights:

  • Minor refresh for 2011
  • Five models: Highlander, Highlander SE, Highlander Limited, Highlander Hybrid and Highlander Hybrid Limited
  • Standard 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 187 horsepower

2011 Toyota Land Cruiser

2011 Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a full-size sport utility vehicle that has been on sale for nearly 60 years. Introduced in the early 1950s, the Land Cruiser built a reputation for prowess in rugged, off-road situations. As subsequent generations were released, the Land Cruiser grew substantially in size and stature-yet it has held onto its capable off-road architecture.

Now more than 10 generations later, the 7-passenger truck is the automaker's largest offering, outfitted with many of Toyota's luxury appointments (the flagship Lexus LX shares mechanicals with the Land Cruiser). Regardless, it still features all of the company's extensive off-road equipment (including full-time 4WD system with Active Traction Control and a Torsen limited-slip center differential with locking feature). For the 2010 model year, the full-size SUV was fitted with Toyota's "Safety Connect" system. For 2011, the Toyota Land Cruiser is a carryover.

Highlights:

  • Carryover for 2011
  • One model: Land Cruiser
  • Standard 5.7-liter 8-cylinder engine rated at 381 horsepower
  • Standard 6-speed automatic transmission
  • Standard full-time 4-wheel drive (4x4)
  • 7-passenger seating

2011 Toyota Matrix

2011 Toyota Matrix

The Toyota Matrix is a compact hatchback that was introduced in 2003, sharing platforms and powertrains with the Toyota Corolla. Developed during a joint venture with General Motors (sold under the GM brand as a Pontiac Vibe), the Matrix is offered in front- and all-wheel-drive trim levels with two different 4-cylinder engines.

Now in its second generation, last redesigned for the 2009 model year, all models received standard traction and stability control for 2010. For the 2011 model year, things changed rather significantly when the Pontiac Vibe was discontinued. Toyota decided to keep the Matrix in the lineup for 2011, but it is mostly carryover. The only change is the addition of a brake override switch.

Highlights:

  • Carryover for 2011
  • Four models: Matrix, Matrix S, Matrix S AWD and and Matrix XRS
  • Standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 132 horsepower

2011 Toyota Prius

2011 Toyota Prius

The Toyota Prius is a hybrid gasoline-electric midsize hatchback. It was originally launched in 2001, though most consumers are much more familiar with the second-generation model that debuted several years later. The 2011 Prius earns fuel economy ratings of 51 mpg city and 48 mpg highway.

For 2010, Toyota introduced an all-new, third-generation Prius model. Its 1.8-liter gasoline powerplant was more powerful (its predecessor was fitted with a 1.5-liter engine), and when combined with the electric motor, total system power had risen to 134 horsepower (up from 110 horsepower). With a very low drag coefficient (.25) and extensive use of lightweight materials, the automaker was able to retain the vehicle's notable fuel economy. According to the company, Toyota sells the Prius in more than 70 countries. The 2011 Toyota Prius is a carryover.

Highlights:

  • Carryover for 2011
  • Four models: Prius II, Prius III, Prius IV and Prius V
  • Standard hybrid gasoline-electric 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor for a total system power of 134 horsepower
  • Standard continuously variable transmission (CVT)
  • Standard front-wheel drive (FWD)
  • Sealed Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries
  • 5-passenger seating

2011 Toyota RAV4

2011 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 is a compact crossover that was first introduced in 1996. The first-generation RAV4 was much smaller than it is today, as it shared platforms with the compact Toyota Corolla. The second-generation model, which debuted in 2001, was slightly larger and more luxurious, and it was fitted with a more powerful engine.

The current RAV4, now in its third generation, debuted for the 2005 model year. Toyota builds two variants of the current model: short- and long-wheelbase. The shorter model is sold in Japan, while the longer model (with an available third-row seating package) is offered in the North American market. Toyota offers all three RAV4 variants the choice of engine and powertrain. In 2009, Toyota treated the RAV4 to a makeover that included fitting a new 4-cylinder engine and a redesigned front fascia. For 2011, the RAV is mostly unchanged.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Three models: RAV4, RAV4 Sport and RAV4 Limited
  • Standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 179 horsepower

2011 Toyota Sequoia

2011 Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV with seating for up to 8 passengers. First introduced in 2001, the Sequoia has shared its heavy-duty mechanicals with the Toyota Tundra pickup truck since its introduction. This gave the Sequoia a rugged frame capable of off-road use and towing. However, unlike the Tundra (a truck fitted with a solid rear axle), the Sequoia receives a fully boxed frame and an independent rear suspension. The second-generation Sequoia debuted for the 2008 model year. The original 4.7-liter V-8 engine was downsized to 4.6 liters in 2010, but power and efficiency were improved. For those looking for a bit more power, the automaker also offers a more powerful 5.7-liter V-8 in gasoline and flex-fuel E85 configurations. After several improvements in 2010 (including standard front driver and passenger knee air bags), the 2011 Toyota Sequoia is a carryover.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Three models: Sequoia SR5, Sequoia Limited and and Sequoia Platinum
  • Standard 4.6-liter 8-cylinder engine rated at 310 horsepower
  • Standard 5.7-liter 8-cylinder engine rated at 381 horsepower
  • Standard 5.7-liter 8-cylinder engine rated at 381 horsepower (E85-compatible)

  • Optional 4-wheel drive (4x4)
  • 8-passenger seating

2011 Toyota Sienna

2011 Toyota Sienna

Toyota introduced its first minivan in 1984, but it was called the Previa, not the Sienna. The Previa was rather unconventional, as Toyota mounted the engine in the middle of the chassis. Although this design improved handling, it was very different than the competition (only a 4-cylinder engine would fit in the space). It wasn't until 1998 that Toyota switched to a conventional front-engine, front-wheel-drive platform with the introduction of the Sienna.

Sharing platforms with the Camry sedan, the Sienna was still smaller than the competition's offerings, but it offered V-6 power. The second-generation Sienna arrived in 2004. Still built on a modified Camry platform, the Sienna was now a "full size" 8-passenger conveyance competing directly with the offerings from Honda, GM and Chrysler. In addition to standard V-6 power and available all-wheel drive (AWD), the Sienna could be optioned with a flat-folding third row, retractable side windows, and voice-activated navigation. The 2011 model year marks the introduction of an all-new third-generation Sienna. Completely redesigned, it is decidedly more modern and advanced in appearance with a sporty profile and distinctive windows, says the automaker. The Sienna is offered with front- or all-wheel drive and a choice between 4- and 6-cylinder powerplants. Toyota is also offering a sporty "SE" version for the first time.

Highlights:

  • All-new redesign for 2011
  • Five models: Sienna Grade, Sienna LE, Sienna SE, Sienna XLE and Sienna Limited
  • Standard 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 187 horsepower (Sienna Grade and LE models)
  • Optional 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine rated at 266 horsepower (standard on SE, XLE and Limited models)
  • Standard 6-speed automatic transmission
  • Standard front-wheel drive (FWD)
  • Available all-wheel drive (AWD)
  • 8-passenger seating

2011 Toyota Tacoma

2011 Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma is a compact pickup truck that replaced the simply-named "Toyota Pickup" in 1995. Bigger than its predecessor, the Tacoma was designed with utility and comfort in mind-for customers who wanted to use their pickup for work, and for the commute. Now in its second generation, last redesigned for the 2005 model year, the Tacoma is offered in nine different trim levels. These include 4- and 6-cylinder powerplants, three different cab configurations, and regular or off-road driveline options.

The Tacoma received a minor refresh for 2009 that included a revised grille and several option changes. Two years later, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma again receives a new front grille, standard air conditioning on Regular Cab models, and the new Tacoma T|X and T|X pro packages. The standard T|X setup starts with the TRD Off-Road package and adds 16-inch TRD "bead lock" wheels with off-road tires, a stainless steel exhaust tip, and black tube steps. The T|X Pro adds a TRD performance exhaust and unique body side graphics.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Four Tacoma models: Regular Cab, Access Cab, Double Cab and X-Runner
  • Standard 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 159 horsepower (standard on Regular Cab, not available on X-Runner)

2011 Toyota Tundra

2011 Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck. The automaker first entered the segment in 1993 with the introduction of the T100. For many mainstream full-size pickup buyers, that model was considered too small. It also lacked an 8-cylinder engine option. Toyota turned things around in 2000, when it introduced the first-generation Tundra. It was larger than its predecessor, plus it offered an optional 4.7-liter V-8 engine (a 3.4-liter V-6 was still standard). The Tundra model range grew to include three cab configurations, two driveline choices, and three engine options.

Now in its second generation, last redesigned for 2008, the Tundra received a new 4.6-liter V-8 engine, new safety equipment, and several trim and option changes for 2010. For the 2011 model year, Toyota's full-size pickup truck receives a simplified lineup, the base engine is upgraded with variable valve timing, and trailer sway control is now standard.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Three Tundra models: Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crewmax
  • Standard 4.0-liter 6-cylinder engine rated at 270 horsepower
  • Optional 4.6-liter 8-cylinder engine rated at 310 horsepower (standard on Crewmax)

  • 6-passenger seating
  • NEW Simplified model lineup
  • NEW Standard 4.0-liter V-6 engine receives variable valve timing
  • NEW Trailer Sway Control is now standard

2011 Toyota Venza

2011 Toyota Venza

The Toyota Venza is a midsize crossover station wagon. First introduced in 2009, the Venza shares platforms with the Toyota Camry and Toyota Avalon. In overall length, it is about the same size as a Camry, but it offers the same ground clearance as the taller Toyota Highlander (the 4-door Venza is priced slightly lower than the Highlander). The 5-passenger Venza competes with the Nissan Murano, Ford Edge and Mazda CX-7. Like some of those models, the crossover is offered with a 4- or 6-cylinder engine (sharing powerplants with the Toyota Sienna minivan) and with a choice between front- and all-wheel drive, however, the Venza is not designed for off-pavement use, says Toyota. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard. Now in its third year of production, there are no changes to the Venza for the 2011 model year (it received standard iPod, USB and Bluetooth connectivity on all models for 2010).

Highlights:

  • Carryover for 2011
  • One model: Venza
  • Standard 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 182 horsepower
  • Optional 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine rated at 268 horsepower

2011 Toyota Yaris

2011 Toyota Yaris

The Toyota Yaris is the automaker's subcompact entry-level model. It is offered in several different body styles, including 3-door liftback, 5-door liftback and sedan. The Yaris has been in production since 1999 (sold as the Toyota Echo in other markets), but it did not arrive in North America until 2007. While it is Toyota's smallest car in the U.S. market, the interior has been designed with seating for up to 5 passengers. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder with a choice between a manual and an automatic transmission. The automaker has fitted the Yaris with a long list of standard safety components (for the 2010 model year, Toyota added electronic traction and stability control as standard equipment across the model range). There are only minor changes for 2011.

Highlights:

  • Minor changes for 2011
  • Three models: 3-door liftback, 5-door liftback and sedan
