The Best Horror Movies to Watch on Halloween
With Halloween just around the corner, everybody’s feeling those spooky vibes. Halloween is a time where we get to be less afraid by acknowledging the things that are frightening. By shining a big, orange and black light on the “things that go bump in the night” we’re able to show how silly they are, and live more full and courageous lives because of it.
…Or we just like to be scared. But let’s be honest, being scared is kind of fun. It’s why even bad horror movies usually break box office expectations. (more…)

Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride Specs and Release Date
In the automotive industry, there are performance-leaders, reliability-leaders and budget-leaders. Call us biased, but we believe Toyota checks all three of these boxes. In fact, it could be argued that all three of these titles are won with the flagship-model 2018 Toyota Camry V6. It’s true, Toyota is no stranger to coming in first on a lot of positive lists.
One of the titles for which you don’t see as much competition as the others is the coveted position of “thought leader.” This title is reserved for manufacturers that are doing more than putting out great automobiles that respond to current market trends, needs and wants. True thought leaders do more than look at the market now, they look ahead. (more…)

The 2018 Toyota Highlander delivers seating for up to eight passengers and light off-road capability. These two features make it the perfect vehicle for family use and long car trips. For the 2017 model year, the Toyota Highlander received a design upgrade. (more…)
Does Toyota Make a Hot Hatchback?
The name Toyota is synonymous with many enviable automotive traits. Reliable, versatile and forward-thinking are among the most apparent. With their TRD-Sport models, and the 2018 Toyota Camry, however, Toyota is looking to see their incredible racing credentials transferred into more performance-minded consumer vehicles. (more…)
If you’ve been spending any time whatsoever looking at Toyota’s Crossover/SUV offerings, you may have noticed something. It almost looks as though Toyota has two different vehicles in the same automotive class, which is generally a no-no (provided they don’t offer unique functionality). In order to demonstrate, let’s take a look at Toyota’s crossover/SUV lineup: (more…)
Since the introduction of the Toyota Prius, twenty years ago, Toyota has been working hard on hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fully-electric and fuel-cell vehicles. The last one especially has been a charge led by Toyota with vehicles like the Mirai.
Alternative fuel vehicles have been around for awhile, though, and always seem to wind up in similar places. They offer little cargo room, or power, and prevent drivers from traveling very far. That’s all about to change. In an October 12, 2017 press release, Toyota has detailed their work into the future of commercial transportation, namely trucking, through the use of highly-efficient fuel-cell vehicle technology.

At less than three weeks away, Halloween 2017 is almost upon us. Trips to local stores may have tipped you off, with their seasonal specials aisles being adorned with big bags of individually-wrapped candies, and bootleg Halloween costumes. Whether it’s the theatrics, the thousands and thousands of candy calories, or the feeling of being fun-scared, Halloween is a great time and a wonderful way to ease into colder weather.
What better way for kids to celebrate this spooky season is there than trick-or-treating? Getting to dress up, show off the costumes on which they’ve worked, and come back home with a pillow case, or Jack-O-Lantern full of candy is about the best trade-off for a few hours of walking. (more…)
Drivers looking for small cars have a lot of choices in the market. Historically, one of the most popular choices they’ve made has been the Toyota Corolla. Since 1966, the Toyota Corolla has been the flagship small sedan on Toyota’s lineup, offering drivers all of the necessities of a car, “punching-up” performance, and some surprising standard tech features.

The Toyota Tundra combines the rugged utility at which pickup trucks excel with Toyota’s legendary status as a reliable and dependable vehicle manufacturer. Throw in some incredible comfort and safety technology, and available off-roading TRD Sport package, and it’s pretty obvious why more and more truck buyers are choosing the Tundra over staid class icons like the F-150, Silverado and Ram.
