New Toyota Product Videos 

The progress never stops when it comes to the new vehicle inventory available at Toyota of Decatur. Summer might figuratively represent the twilight of the current model year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to learn about these incredible vehicles. Our team of product experts has found a series of new Toyota product videos that should shed some additional light on some very popular platforms. Some of the videos we found will highlight the best parts of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 and how it compares to a top rival. The video we found about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma will do the same thing.

Take a look at how we got here with the Toyota Tacoma

How long has the Toyota Tacoma been around? 

Pickup trucks are a uniquely American vehicle platform. In about a century of production, pickup trucks have been built in a wide range of sizes that can provide an even wider range of capabilities. One of the most popular vehicles in the class, the Toyota Tacoma, holds a special place in the hearts of a lot of people. So, how long has the Toyota Tacoma been around? Quite a while. Obviously, the people at Toyota have been thinking about that question as well and turned to brand ambassador Andy Bell to look over the truck’s history. Our team was fascinated with this story and were very excited to share them with current and future customers. Take a look at what they found and let us know what you think. If you have any questions about what the 2020 Tacoma has to offer, make an appointment with a Toyota of Decatur product expert today.  Read the rest of this entry >>

Which 2020 Toyota vehicles have a mobile hotspot in Decatur, AL? 

Traditional automotive elements like performance, fuel economy and safety are still important parts of the equation for buying a new vehicle. However, automakers like Toyota have really leaned hard into providing its drivers and their passengers with the latest technology to keep them connected to the world outside the vehicle. Features like a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that offers safe and convenient access to the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto have become almost universal across the manufacturer’s lineup. But Toyota wasn’t satisfied stopping there. So, which 2020 Toyota vehicles have a mobile hotspot in Decatur, AL?. Most 2020 Toyota cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans have this feature. For our purposes today we’ll just be focusing on the brand’s pickup trucks and crossover SUVs.   Read the rest of this entry >>

What does an empty gas tank really mean?

How far will a Toyota car/truck/SUV go on empty? 

If you’ve ever unexpectedly run out of gas on the road, you will almost instantly remember that feeling. In our experience it feels like a combination of fear, shame and regret. Luckily, Toyota has joined several other automakers in providing drivers with a low fuel light to let them know that need to start looking for a place to fill the tank very soon. However, that hasn’t stopped people from asking our product experts, ‘How far will a Toyota car, truck or SUV go on empty?’ The exact numbers can depend on a lot of factors like the terrain being driving on and the overall health of the vehicle. However, our team of product experts has found a great website, www.tankonempty.com, that provides an average by individual model taken from crowd-sourced information.  Read the rest of this entry >>
