Is it 2017 already? Well, it is here at Keyes Toyota. Some 2017 Toyota models are already on our lot, and more are just around the corner. Below, we're charting some of the changes that are in store for new car buyers in Los Angeles, CA looking for their next car, crossover, or minivan.
2017 Toyota Corolla: Talk about major milestones: the Toyota Corolla turns 50 in 2017. What will you be getting for the big five-oh? The Toyota Corolla gets a mid-cycle redesign that features the same powertrains but a more updated look. There'll also be an anniversary edition, which we'll feature when more information becomes available.
2017 Toyota Highlander: The Toyota Corolla won't be the only vehicle getting a new set of "clothes." The 2017 Toyota Highlander comes in for a mid-cycle refresh as well, getting a new SE trim level that adds sport suspension and some other perks, plus a 3.5 liter V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission drive train that it shares with the Toyota Tacoma. New front and rear fascias are on tap, and Toyota Safety Sense active safety features will be available as standard equipment across the lineup.
2017 Toyota Prius Prime: The Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid gets a new name, but that's not all. Its body is redesigned, as is its battery pack. The latter now has twice the kilowatt-hours of its predecessor, and will have an electric-only range of 22 miles on a single charge without using engine power.
2017 Toyota Sienna: Like the Toyota Highlander, the Toyota Sienna inherits the same 3.5 liter V6 engine that the Toyota Tacoma pickup uses. The earlier six-speed automatic transmission is replaced by a new eight-speed version.
If you don't see a model listed above, it's likely only receiving minor trim changes for the 2017 model year. But if you're looking for a new Toyota, or if your old Toyota is coming off lease, there's a lot to like about the 2017 lineup. Curious?
