How many color options are there for the 2018 Toyota C-HR?
Color isn’t everything. Some might even say, in the grand scheme of things, it isn’t all that important. We could debate whether some hues will lower your resale value, or if there’s any truth to the rumor that red cars get pulled over more often, but ultimately it’s more about style preference than anything else. Style often appeals to our sense of identity, and if a model just doesn’t offer what you need, there are plenty of other options. If you’ve only seen the same shades in promotion after promotion for the 2018 Toyota C-HR, you may be wondering how many color options there are for the model. Today we’re looking at your choices.

What model is the world’s fastest SUV?
When we think of SUVs our first thoughts are usually size. How many people can sit in it? What is the leg room like? It’s not that we don’t consider power, because it takes a lot to get a bigger vehicle moving, but we don’t exactly expect sports car speeds. That doesn’t mean we want to be bogged down on the highway either. So what model is the world’s fastest SUV? Well, the Land Cruiser just earned the title with the specially modified Last Speed Cruiser, although the specs aren’t exactly what you’ll find stock from us here at Carver Toyota.

Something done right is always worth seeing, and Toyota appears to be a success. The automaker was recently inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame by the American Advertising Federation. The American Advertising Federation has only ever inducted eight companies in its 68-year history. Clearly this is a great honor, and it takes some creative campaigns to earn such a reputation. Below, you can see some of the fantastic ads that helped Toyota earn this award. Read the rest of this entry »
Toyota hydrogen fuel cell commercial semi-truck
When we think of the environmental impact of vehicles, our thoughts tend to turn to consumer vehicles because there are so many individual drivers on the road. Your average vehicle has made leaps and bounds when it comes to efficiency, but it doesn’t always seem like commercial vehicles have made the same progress. Semi-trucks still run on diesel fuel, and average 6.5 mpg, which is an improvement from the 5.6 mpg average of the 1970s. Needless to say, progress isn’t exactly fast or impressive. But Toyota has just unveiled a hydrogen fuel cell commercial semi-truck as part of its “Project Portal.” Read the rest of this entry »
