Like a bear emerging from a cave after a winter in hibernation, Toyota is holding a press event at its Texas headquarters this week and released a deluge of news along with it. We figured it would be useful to see it all in one spot since there's a little something for everyone, including the electric bz4x concept, the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro and Trail Edition, U.S. specs for the GR 86 and all-new Corolla Cross, and a sneak preview of the next-generation Lexus NX. With News Editor Joel Stocksdale on the ground in Plano, we expect a few more tidbits to trickle out from the Toyotathon as well.
Among the upgrades includes an extra lift for the TRD Pro and 2022's special color: Electric Lime. The Trail Edition digs into the TRD Pro's back catalog of colors for Army Green and Lunar Rock (among others) and gains some new, unique, innovative features.
We had seen the pictures and some specs, but now we get a clearer picture of what to expect from the second-generation Toyabaru sport coupe.
"The future of Lexus is just on the horizon," the company explained in a release accompanying the image. That's a little misleading; the photo shows Mount Fuji, a 12,388-foot high volcano in Japan, on the horizon. It's what's in the foreground that's about to break cover.
What is likely to be a yearly tradition begins as the Supra is kept fresh with a new special edition limited to 600 units.
Specs and pricing are still to be announced (look for them later this year), but we did get confirmation that the production version of Toyota's all-electric crossover will be coming to the United States next year.
