Our Favorite Toyota Exterior Paint Colors

2021-Toyota-Mirai-Limited-Dixon-IL

Many people consider their car an extension of their personality. One of the best things about buying a new car is choosing a color that matches you. The Toyota lineup is packed with a brilliant array of hues so you can find the right shade to match your individuality. These Toyota colors are our favorite from the ones available this year on the 2021 Toyota lineup.

Blueprint

This blue hue has a dark, smoky look. You can find it on new Toyota models like the Corolla, RAV4, and the Highlander. In the bright sun, this color can look almost black and sparkles in the light.

Supersonic Red

This color is for anyone who likes to stand out in a crowd. This bold red pops wherever it’s parked. You can find it on models like the Toyota Prius and the Toyota Mirai.

Lunar Rock

If you prefer more subdued tones on your car, the Lunar Rock shade is an intriguing melding of blue, green, and gray colors. It is available on the more rugged Toyota models including the RAV4, 4Runner, and Tundra.

Smoked Mesquite

We love this unique shade of brown, especially when worn by the rugged Toyota Tundra. We think it evokes a sense of rugged adventure that’s perfect for living in Dixon, Illinois.

Cypress

This dark green hue is something you won’t find on many other vehicles on the market. This uncommon color is available on the Toyota Sienna and will keep you and your family riding in style.

Come pick out your favorite color on one of the 2021 Toyota models available at Ken Nelson Toyota today.

Have You Downloaded the Toyota App?

Toyota App | Dixon, IL

Did you know that Toyota has a handy smartphone app that lets you perform basic functionalities on your vehicle from the palm of your hand? We at Ken Nelson Toyota highly suggest that you download the Toyota app; here are some reasons why.

Monitor your vehicle’s health

It’s not easy to stay up-to-date with the health of your vehicle when you’re juggling a busy career and an even busier family. The Toyota app lets you check your Toyota’s health by alerting you to possible recalls, service campaigns, and maintenance needs. The app can even tell you if your key fob battery is low or if an oil change is needed.

Remote control functions

Your phone can serve as a remote control for your vehicle when you sign up for Toyota Remote Connect through the app. This service allows you to lock and unlock the doors, start and stop the engine, and locate your car in a crowded parking lot.

Pay your bills

If you financed your vehicle through Toyota when you did business here at Ken Nelson Toyota, you can make payments on your lease or loan through the Toyota app. Check out the current balance on your loan and see when your next payment is due.

If you’d love to use these handy smartphone features but you don’t have a Toyota, visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to find a compatible car, truck, or SUV.
