Toyota Safety Sense
One of the hallmarks of a successful automobile company is its ability to build a family of vehicles that will protect its occupants if they are involved in a crash. Simply building crash proof cars isn’t enough anymore. Toyota has begun rolling out a system that takes the next step to prevent crashes from happening in the first place. The new safety suite is being called Toyota Safety Sense. This new technology is so important that when Toyota was unveiling the new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid last week, the Toyota presenter mented Toyota Safety Sense first. Also the new RAV4 Hybrid is one of the first Toyota vehicles in the U.S. to feature this technology. (more…)
Best Toyota car on ice
We feel kind of bad about talking about our current blog discussing the best Toyota car on ice. It has been so nice lately, that even mentioning ice on the road is like talking about no-hitter in the dugout, it just isn’t done. That being said, we are in a very weird time of year where there is so much moisture in the air because of melting snow and cold night temperatures, that slippery conditions could still be a concern for a couple of more weeks. Or we may get blasted with a foot of snow in May. There is no way to know. But, whatever happens you will be prepared. After considering the options, we have decided that the best Toyota car on ice is a toss up between the 2015 Toyota RAV4 and 2015 Toyota Sienna. (more…)

Groundbreaking for the new Toyota facility
Our manufacturing partners at Toyota have broken new ground on a $350 million facility in Texas that will house the company’s North American headquarters. Toyota has already procured the needed outside resources to finish the major project by late 2016 or the early parts of 2017. The Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz was among the many speakers during the groundbreaking for the new Toyota facility that also featured students from the local schools and several Toyota “Pioneers” that have already made the move to Texas in anticipation for the opening of the new HQ. At the center of the actual groundbreaking was a 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Series pickup truck. (more…)
Toyota RND Concept
There have been several times where those of us working for the Toyota of Naperville Blog have touted Toyota’s position as a global leader in the automotive industry. Our manufacturing partners have made a big splash in the world of alternative fuels with the Toyota Mirai, the new production car using hydrogen fuel cells. Toyota is also among the industry leaders in offering hybrid vehicles, with at least a mild hybrid version of almost every car or SUV available at Toyota of Naperville. The next big leap Toyota is making is being shown off exclusively to our British cousins next week with the Toyota RND Concept.
UPDATE: As it turns out the Toyota RND Concept is just a joke put on by our friends at Toyota Europe. The Red Nose Day is held every other year in England in March and is concerted national effort to get people to contribute to charity for the day. This is very worthy cause. As Americans we weren’t in on the joke. However, we will still follow up on what comes of this. Sorry for the confusion. (more…)
Oculus Rift Driving Simulator
The past 18 months or so have been full of efforts from Toyota and its TeenDrive365 program to promote better driving habits for new teen drivers as well as their parents.

Toyota set up a driving simulator using Oculus Rift virtual reality technology to provide a very realistic rendering of a vehicle setting filled with potential distractions. The simulator has made a few stops with Toyota so far and has been among the most popular displays, as side from the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. (more…)
