We now have an early look at what Toyota's next gen launch timeline is going to look like! We should expect to see the new 86 sometime in Summer 2021!

A friend of mine sent me this and he told me that on some of the other slides mentioned a new turbocharged 2.4L boxer 4-cyl engine for the 86!

Over the next couple of years we can expect:

Sienna (All Hybrid) - Fall 2020
All-New Crossover (All Hybrid) - Fall 2020
86 - Summer 2021
All-New CUV - Q3 2021
Tundra - Q4 2021
Sequoia & 4Runner - 2022

VERY cool!

One question though... are they saying the next-gen Sienna will ONLY be a Hybrid?

Finally!

I can't wait, especially after reading this info that came from a Toyota dealer conference:
  • a new platform with a 260HP Turbocharged engine
  • better interior
  • RWD
  • Release Date: Summer 2021 (I heard June)
Something tells me there won't only be a 260 horsepower version but something more by way of some GR trims we've seen.

June makes a lot of sense for the release date. As for the GR trims there has to be a GR version of the 86, especially since Toyota is bringing the GRMN brand to North America!

  • better interior
Sigh. The interior is fine. I'd rather have the same interior without the weight increase of a 'better' interior.

This reminds me of how we used to have the option of really nice cloth seats in the early 90s, but people only wanted leather 'cAuSe iTS NiCEr DUrRrr', so now we don't get nice cloth seats anymore. Any cloth seats on most cars are shit.

Fuck leather. It's a terrible car seat material.

I still wouldn't be surprised if that better version is only available in Japan

I'm already preparing myself for that. There's going to be a least 1 sweet version that we won't get because it's an exclusive.

It looks like this chart is the real deal. News has come out about the new Sienna that's expected to come out this fall.

I never really doubted it, but that is good news.

A small part of me was worried this was all BS..... I guess the part we really don't know is if it'll be that turbo engine. I sure hope so.

If that wasn't enough to reinforce this chart. Toyota re-introduced the Venza, which is going to be a hybrid!

I was always surprised that the Venza was such a flop.

It's essentially a Camry crossover and Camrys sell so well.
I'm generally not a fan of crossovers but if I was forced to pick one the Venza would've been one I'd consider. Let's see if Toyota gets it right the second time.

I think it was too close to a liftback lifted Camry. I think it reminded people of wagons and how uncool they are. Looks like the new one is a bit taller and just a sleeker, more stylish Rav4.

It was terrible looking, I'll give you that.

But that old Camry of that era was also ugly and sold like crazy.
