The Corolla lineup could be welcoming a new member into the fold

What is the Toyota GR Corolla? 

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling vehicle in automotive history. We already have the classic sedan version of the Corolla as well as a hybrid sedan that was introduced in 2020, in addition to the sporty Corolla Hatchbackbut is the lineup complete? Apparently, Toyota doesn’t think so. Lexington Toyota product experts have come across an article about a potential “hot hatch” variant of the Corolla that could debut in the next couple of model years. So, what is the Toyota GR Corolla? At first blush, the new GR Corolla appears to be a lightweight, high-performance hatchback that will rival some very impressive European competitors.

Toyota could be adding a new Corolla-themed crossover SUV to the lineup

Is the Toyota Corolla Cross coming to Lexington, MA? 

It’s completely reasonable for people to think that Lexington Toyota product experts have inside knowledge about new models that may be coming to the showroom. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. For instance, one of our teammates was speaking with a family member who is a real automotive enthusiast.

They then shared the July 9 article from Autoblog with the rest of us. It certainly led to an interesting discussion.

Toyota Sets Standard for Zero Emission Trucking with Project Portal

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.
