Toyota has an onslaught of new models coming. And an apparent recent leak from a dealership insider published to Reddit recounting the brand's recent dealer meeting may shed some insight on what Toyota has in store for next year.
Sadly, the source does not provide any details on the new 4Runner or the new Tacoma. But if the report is correct, Toyota should have some exciting developments in the near future if you'll be in the market for an off-road SUV, a three-row family crossover...or a roaring hot hatch.
The letter mentions the GR (Gazoo Racing) version of the Corolla hatchback that Toyota strongly hinted at as an American alternative to the GR Yaris. It says there will be a 300 hp version and a rally series that will be manual-only and have a rear-seat delete.
The letter references Toyota debuting a new Grand Highlander, a larger three-row crossover with more space to slot above the Highlander.
The letter claims Toyota showed off the all-new Sequoia SUV, which — freed from family duty by the Grand Highlander — will look more rugged and borrow heavily from the new Tundra pickup. The letter says the Sequoia will get the same engines: a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 with 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque and a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 hybrid with 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque.
The Sequoia, per the letter, would also get a new Capstone luxury trim like the Tundra — as well as a cool-looking TRD Pro.
Toyota is dropping the full-size Avalon sedan after the 2022 model year. The letter says Toyota will replace the Avalon with a new Toyota Crown that will be a "sedan plus" vehicle. The letter describes it as "a mixture of sedan and SUV with higher rooflines and a low stance." The poster later notes that, yes, that means something that looks like the Honda Crosstour seen here.
The letter says a new Prius will get a "sleeker look and futuristic overtones." It will deliver more horsepower and torque while still offering 52 mpg.
