The ‘Swagger Wagon’ Struts Its Stuff as 2015 Sienna Wins Family Car of Texas

The 2015 Toyota Sienna “Swagger Wagon” showed its moves with its refreshed styling and added safety, convenience and multimedia features, earning it both Family Car of Texas and Minivan of Texas at the Texas Automotive Writers Association’s (TAWA) annual Auto Roundup event.

After a day of demanding driving at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, journalists voted for their favorite vehicles in 18 different categories. This year 52 journalists attended the event and drove 54 vehicles from various manufacturers.

“As the only van in its segment available with all-wheel drive, the recognition as Family Car of Texas confirms our efforts to keep the family van alive and thriving,” said KC Kirimoto, vice president of product and global communications for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Toyota’s commitment to enhancing the 2015 Sienna was focused not only on new safety features, but also the convenience and comfort of every member of the family.”

2015 Sienna is Perfect Fit for Families
The 2015 Sienna impressed Texas journalists with its style and comfort, from the subtle exterior styling refinements for a more upscale look to the new center console and dash design.  Both passengers and drivers can enjoy the refreshed interior with added safety, convenience and multimedia features. Sienna’s new three-spoke heated steering wheel, available trimmed in leather or premium leather, ups the luxury ante.

For even greater passenger comfort, the Limited FWD grade’s standard second-row Lounge Seating includes leg and foot support. Second-row captain chairs have dual armrests, and an easy release mechanism facilitates seat removal.  The new parent-friendly Driver Easy Speak system conveys your voice through the audio system’s rear speakers, allowing parents to talk with family in the back two rows.  Blu-Ray Dual View Entertainment Center, with a seamless 16.4-inch widescreen that plays from one or two separate sources, keeps the peace in the back seat.

All-New Lexus NX is Both Green Vehicle and Activity Vehicle of Texas
Additionally, the 2015 Lexus NX received top honors as Activity Vehicle of Texas for the NX 200t F Sport and Green Vehicle of Texas category with the NX 300h hybrid. The all-new 2015 NX is inspired by performance vehicles and unites the engineering input of racers with the impeccable touches of Lexus luxury in design that steals the show.

Following closely behind the NX for the Green Vehicle of Texas runner up is the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid. TAWA also named the Toyota Avalon Hybrid runner up for the Full-size Vehicle of Texas. The combination of new refinements in the third year of its fourth generation design and the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive power train, the Avalon remains the only car in its class to offer a hybrid. Toyota reminds the world’s leader in hybrid vehicles, and the choice of seven hybrids for 2015, with an additional six in the Lexus line up.

TAWA members gather every spring to evaluate all that new in passenger cars, minivans and performance SUVs. The annual event is a way for TAWA members to experience the vehicles on road and track courses from manufacturers across the globe – in one place, at one time.

Toyota Sienna Van and RAV4 Compact SUV: All-Wheel-Drive Cures for the Winter Blues

Through ice and snow, Toyota continues to go places. Long, harsh winters can be a bit more bearable when drivers of family haulers ride into spring with the added capability and peace of mind that an all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle provides.

Recently, the Toyota Sienna and RAV4, both with available AWD, along with some leading competitors in their respective segments, completed certified testing in snow and ice conditions by notable third-party organization AMCI. The certified tests revealed the Sienna minivan and RAV4 compact SUV performed significantly better in the areas of acceleration, traction, and handling on snowy and icy road conditions when equipped with AWD. In fact, the certified testing results showed the Sienna AWD performed substantially better than other front-wheel-drive competitors in its segment and equal cornering performance on both ice and snow as a competing popular mid-size SUV equipped with four-wheel-drive!

Toyota Tundra: The All-America Full-Size Pickup Goes All V8 and “Pro” for 2015

After a dramatic redesign for the 2014 model year the Toyota Tundra half-ton full-size pickup truck comes back with an encore for 2015. The most stylish, value-driven and capable Tundra yet gets more upgrades, including standard V8 power across the board, a new TRD Pro model with special off-road suspension and an available spray-in bed liner.

The brawnier, more chiseled look of the Tundra presented an ideal platform for the 2015 TRD Pro off-road model. You’ll know it when you see it: special blackout TOYOTA grille, TRD Pro bed panel stamping, skid plate, matte satin black badges and black headlight bezels. It takes an aggressive stance on 18-inch TRD black alloy wheels wrapped in exclusive Michelin Off-Road Package tires, and announces its arrival with the throaty growl of the 5.7-liter V8 with a TRD dual exhaust system.

Beneath the brawn, the Tundra TRD Pro is ready for any terrain with a complete TRD suspension upgrade that raises the front of the vehicle two inches for a level ride height and extends wheel travel at all four corners. The package includes larger diameter TRD-tuned Bilstein High-Performance shocks with internal hydraulic bump stops and piggyback external reservoirs.

Available in Attitude Black, Super White or the all-new exclusive color, Inferno, the Tundra TRD Pro is a take-no-prisoners kind of truck devised to embody the best of Toyota quality, durability and reliability.
