2017 Toyota Model Preview

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 Los Angeles new car buyers 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, about which we'll feature more information when it 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 fasciae 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, or none at all, for the 2017 model year. But if you're looking for a new Toyota vehicle, or if your old Toyota car is coming off lease, there's a lot to like about the 2017 lineup. Curious?

  1. The company also starts adding its Toyota Safety Sense collision-avoidance systems as standard equipment for several models, introduces a new powertrain for its Sienna minivan, and debuts a new plug-in hybrid version of the Prius called the Prime. The Toyota logo designer is an important part of our identity.
