    Conquer the Road Responsibly Behind the Wheel of the Toyota RAV4 EV

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Sport-utility and crossover vehicles offer the space and capability that other vehicles cannot, while still providing a smooth, comfortable ride. However, they don’t quite have the efficiency ratings to compete with smaller cars. The brand-new Toyota RAV4 EV aims to change the way these vehicles are viewed forever. Check out what this new electric vehicle has to offer.

    Capability

    The automotive industry has always been forced to cut back in key areas of a vehicle’s function to allow improvements in fuel economy. Toyota has acquired brand-new technology which allows the new RAV4 EV to boast full capability on and off the road. The interior and exterior are virtually the same as a regular crossover version and feature ample space, utility, and comforts. The performance it offers is similarly strong with 154 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 time of just seven seconds in sport mode. The new RAV4 EV is distinguishable from its regular counter-parts by slight changes in the styling, badges, and the nearly closed grille.

    Efficiency

    Yet, the sleek style and closed grill offer much more than show. In fact, there is no SUV that is more aerodynamic than the RAV4 EV which offers a drag coefficient of only .30, and this works very much to the vehicle’s advantage. On a single charge the EV is capable of traveling 100 miles without burning a single drop of fuel or producing any tail-pipe emissions. The best part is that with a 240V charge unit the EV reaches full charge in under six hours.

    Technology

    The powertrain may be the most important technology when it comes to achieving fuel-less travel, but the RAV4 EV is by no means short of any other technological features. It’s expected to feature the latest and most advanced Toyota Entune system, efficiency and charge management, and all the features one expects from a ground-breaking vehicle.

    Style Gets the Green Light in the All-New Toyota Avalon Hybrid

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Toyota vehicles have become more refined with each generation. Looking through the vehicles at the Greenfield Toyota dealership will have you wondering if you’re actually at a luxury car dealer. The Avalon blurs the line more than most vehicles by offering a true upscale appearance and interior with smooth, refined power under the hood. The latest edition adds an attribute that is becoming more relevant as the future unfolds.

    Design

    The Avalon has been completely redesigned for the 2013 model year, and you’ll soon learn that the changes go deeper than just the exterior. The aerodynamic body features sleek lines flowing back from the Avalon’s grille. This design allows the Avalon a drag coefficient of just .28—that’s more aerodynamic than many high-end sports cars. The interior is just as functional as it is enjoyable to look at, and comfort is found throughout from the plush leather seats to the soft-to-touch dashboard and trim. The large touchscreen display and secondary display with touch controls deliver information accurately and make accessing it easy. The brand-new eBin provides a convenient area to keep and charge electronic devices such as cell phones or iPods.

    Technology

    The interior technologies such as the large touchscreen with Entune, the IntelliTouch control system, and the eBin are all rewarding and useful features. However, the majority of the new Avalon’s technology lies in the way it drives and utilizes energy. The hybrid system employs two electric motors that work with the gasoline engine to improve fuel consumption.

    Performance

    The Avalon Hybrid features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 200 horsepower with the help of the electric motors. Fuel economy is estimated at 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. The selectable drive-modes including Sport and Eco change the drive characteristics depending on the driver’s preference. The mixture of efficiency, power, and smooth performance is the essence of the Avalon.

    2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Finding the formula for a perfect car isn’t an easy task, although Toyota has made it seem that way; the Toyota Camry has been a top-selling car for decades. Maintaining the company’s standard of being innovative and ahead of the game, the Camry Hybrid offers one of the best solutions for those seeking better fuel economy.

    Instead of offering a completely distinguishable hybrid experience similar to what the Prius does, the Camry Hybrid sticks to the solid appearance of the regular Camry. It also offers performance, comfort, and an interior that makes the driver feel right at home and possibly forget they are even in a hybrid. However, looking at the average fuel economy reading quickly notifies them where the difference lies. Watch this video for a detailed review of the 2012 Camry Hybrid.

    Toyota of Greenfield has the Camry on stock, and a test drive is just a phone call away. Visit us in person, see what we have to offer online, or call us at (888) 923-8230.
