Toyota Plans Scion Overhaul as Youth Brand Hits Adolescence
Apr 19, 2014 - 12:34 AM - by {got-rice}
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-0...olescence.html
Quote:
Toyota Motor Corp.’s Scion line, a U.S. experiment intended to win over young buyers with idiosyncratic designs and low prices, will overhaul its lineup amid fading sales as the brand reaches adolescence.

Beginning in 2015, 12 years after Scion’s establishment as Toyota’s third U.S. brand, the company will introduce the first of three new vehicles, Doug Murtha, vice president of Scion sales, said yesterday in an interview at the New York International Auto Show. While Scion will continue to offer about five different models, Murtha declined to say which current products will be discontinued.

“Beginning in November in Los Angeles, we’re going to show the first of three new products that will come to market within a 24-month period,” Murtha said. “Beyond that, there are no real specifics on what’s going to sunset and what’s going to stick around.”

Scion sales surged after the nameplate’s introduction across the U.S. in 2003, peaking three years later at 173,034

2015 Toyota Camry Revealed
Apr 16, 2014 - 8:58 AM - by {AutoGuide.com}


Quote:
For 2015, Toyota is peeling away all the sheet metal below the roof to keep it’s perennial cash cow in the top spot.

Bowing at the 2014 New York Auto Show, this is one of Toyota’s most important vehicle debuts if not also one of its least exciting. The all-important guts are exactly the same, meaning a 2.5-liter four cylinder, 3.5-liter V6 and 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid are still at the heart of what makes a Camry, well, a Camry. It’s a proven formula that Toyota counts on for consistent sales like McDonald’s does the Big Mac.

Unlike the sandwich made of “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun,” the Camry requires regular rejuvenation to maintain its sales dominance. Since launching the current generation in 2011, Toyota can lay claim to almost one million Camry sales. For a single nameplate in the auto industry, that arguably does make this car the auto industry’s Big Mac.

Seeking to spice up its bread-and-butter product,

Into Africa: Toyota taps last emerging market
Apr 14, 2014 - 11:37 PM - by {got-rice}
http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...merging-market
Quote:
TOKYO - Last year, former Toyota Motor Corp. president and founding family patriarch Shoichiro Toyoda called aside his son, Akio Toyoda.

He had a mission for the automaker's current president: Get out of the Asia-Europe-America rut and visit places you have never been.

So that's just what the younger Toyoda did. He visited Kenya for the first time last fall, touring Toyota's knockdown production plant and Toyota Group companies.

The visit was a textbook example of the Toyota maxim of genchi genbutsu, which literally means "actual place, actual things" but is best translated as "go to the source to see for yourself."

His trip highlights a new reality for Toyota and rivals from Europe to China: Africa is the last untapped emerging market. And carmakers are jostling for position there.

The potential is huge because motorization in Africa has yet to take off.

In South Africa, there were roughly

Toyota unveils new generation of fuel-efficient gasoline engines
Apr 11, 2014 - 12:48 PM - by {got-rice}
http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...soline-engines
http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/201...cient-engines/
Quote:
TOKYO -- Toyota Motor Corp., which has lagged rivals in rolling out new engines, has unveiled two fresh power plants that boost fuel economy by 10 percent and will underpin 14 new engine variants to be introduced globally through next year.

The 1.3-liter, 4-cylinder and 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder gasoline engines achieve improved thermal efficiency through adapting a rapid combustion process, high compression ratio and an Atkinson burning cycle, which until now has been reserved for Toyota’s hybrid vehicles.

The wide-ranging overhaul will use this base technology in bigger engines going into premium vehicles and hybrids, as well as engines using direct-injection and turbocharging.

When the 14 new engines come to market over the next two years, they will cover about 30 percent
