Food delivery services have always been pretty popular, and this is made even more so these days thanks to technology where there are apps that let us order food. However the more food deliveries we request, the more transportation is involved, in which turn is probably not too good for the environment.
Don't let its small(er) size fool you—the 2018 Toyota Tacoma is as tough as they come in the pickup truck world. This long-running compact truck has been a favorite of shoppers who want to take their vehicle off the beaten path. Revised for the 2016 model year, the Tacoma was given a freshened cabin and exterior, along with a choice of a four-cylinder or optional V6 engine. Tacoma shoppers can opt for rear- and four-wheel drive, and there is a choice of manual or automatic transmission with either engine.
Like the Jeep Wrangler, the Tacoma caters to a client base that demands a rugged truck that plays to a spirit of adventure. The Tacoma TRD Pro, TRD Sport and TRD Off Road trim levels come with features such as beefier shocks and suspensions, skid plates, an electronic locking differential and a Terrain Select system.
TOKYO — Japanese truck maker Hino Motors Ltd and Volkswagen Truck & Bus GmbH said on Thursday they have agreed to form a strategic tie-up to better compete in the commercial vehicle industry, which is undergoing transformation due to the need for lower-emission vehicles and automated driving capabilities.
If you were to rank vehicles that do what they're told to do, the Toyota Hilux might be one of the top five greatest workhorses of all time. For 50 years, over eight generations, the Hilux has proved itself to be reliable, durable, yet modest about its achievements.
The Hilux was born in March 1968, as the replacement for two separate pickup model lines under Toyota's corporate umbrella. Beneath it was the Hino Briska, a sedan-derived delivery truck from the early 1960s, and the Hilux also replaced the older Toyota Stout model originally dating from the manufacturer's Toyopet days. Hino was bought out by Toyota right before the Hilux came to be, and from that point on it has only made trucks, including assembling Hiluxes.
You know the drill: A vehicle manufacturer wants to build interest in an upcoming reveal of a new product. So there's a dance of the seven veils involving a series of photos and videos and a controlled release of intriguing facts. Nobody stretched out this process better than last year's tantalizingly slow unwrapping of the Dodge Demon. The photos might show a design detail, or a dimly/dramatically lit photo of the vehicle in profile, such as this next-gen Hyundai Santa Fe crossover.
But Toyota just took a new approach by backing up — way, way up — from the vehicle, providing a teaser that's inscrutable but also quite pretty. Above, you can see what appear to be a 4Runner, a Tacoma and a Tundra. But why are they so blurry, you ask? Well, because we've zoomed in on them for you. Here's the photo as it originally came from Toyota:
