The 2023 Toyota Crown is roaring into dealerships later this year with intense power, innovative tech, and a bold design. The all-new model shakes up the full-size sedan market with its impressive capabilities and hybrid powertrain. We at Ken Nelson Toyota can’t wait for you to get a closer look and schedule a test drive; until then, check out some of this sedan’s most notable features.
You won’t be able to take your eyes off the bold new look of the 2023 Crown. The model features an elevated height so you have a better view of the road and won’t struggle to get in and out. Sculpted lines make the Crown a shining jewel.
The all-new 2023 Crown is available with the brand’s HYBRID MAS System, which works with a potent 2.4-liter turbocharged engine and responsive six-speed automatic transmission.
Modern technologies for fun and safety
In addition to looking good and driving great, the 2023 Crown also delivers the modern technologies you need to have fun and be safe on the journey. The new Audio Multimedia System floods the cabin with high-quality sound and comes standard on each trim. Another standard innovation is the brand’s safety-tech suite — Toyota Safety Sense 3.0.
With more than 50 million models sold since 1966, the Toyota Corolla is the bestselling car of all time — and it just got better. For 2023, the Corolla is getting loads of new tech, new hybrid models, extra power, and much more.
More traditional power
The most affordable and popular Corolla trim, the LE, is getting even more powerful. The former 1.8-liter engine is moving aside for a 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 169 horsepower — 30 more horses than before. Despite this, Toyota says it gets nearly two more miles per gallon.
Hybrid all-wheel drive
It’s now easier than ever to get the Corolla of your choice with a hybrid powertrain. Four new hybrid trim levels have been added for 2023, with all-wheel drive offered as an option. That makes the Corolla the only compact hybrid passenger car with available AWD.
Every 2023 Corolla gets Toyota’s latest infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch touch-screen display and support for wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. All Corollas also have Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0, a next-gen suite of advanced driver assistance systems.
These are just a few examples of the many new upgrades coming to the 2023 Toyota Corolla. Visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to get behind the wheel of the Corolla and get an up-close look at its many great features!
For the 2023 model year, the popular Highlander arrives with several attractive upgrades designed to keep it at the top of the midsize SUV segment. The Toyota Highlander updates include a new turbocharged engine, larger multimedia screens, and other improved features that should appeal to small and large families alike.
New turbocharged, environmentally friendly engine
For 2023, the Highlander’s previous 3.5-liter V6 has been replaced by a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 46 lb-ft of extra torque. That leads to more thrust and responsiveness, making the Highlander better at towing heavy loads or hauling its eight potential occupants. It’s also just as efficient as the previous engine and much more environmentally friendly, as it produces less than half the amount of NOx and NMOG — and fewer CO2 emissions as well.
More display area than ever before
The 2023 Toyota Highlander Limited and Platinum now feature two standard 12.3-inch displays, one serving as the main infotainment touch screen and the other as a full digital instrument cluster. The latter is offered at the XLE and XSE trim levels as well and give the Highlander more screen space than ever before.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander updates don’t stop there. Call or visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to learn more about America’s bestselling midsize SUV and reserve your own!
Trucks and SUVs are becoming increasingly popular, but a few automakers like Toyota are still finding success with sedans like the Camry, Corolla, and Avalon. After all, there are many benefits to driving a sedan! Here are just a few.
Sedans are more efficient
It doesn’t matter how green of a powertrain you develop for an SUV. The same powertrain, installed in a sedan, will take you even further with the same amount of gas or electricity. At the end of the day, sedans are lighter and more aerodynamic than bigger vehicles, making them inherently more fuel-efficient.
Sedans are more enjoyable to drive
Thanks to their lower weight and lower center of gravity, sedans are more responsive and agile. You don’t have to be a gearhead to appreciate this. If you spend a lot of time at the wheel, such as when commuting, having a fun-to-drive car goes a long way toward enhancing every trip.
Sedans are practical
Just because a sedan isn’t as big as an SUV doesn’t mean it isn’t practical. Cars like the Toyota Avalon have luxurious amounts of interior passenger space, while even sporty cars like the Corolla Hatchback have a spacious trunk with great access. Additionally, cars are easier to maneuver and park, making them especially practical if you live in urban areas.
The 2022 Toyota Tundra is an all-new model. Entering its third generation, the new pickup truck comes with a host of upgrades and improvements over the current version. Here’s a look at the redesigned truck coming to Ken Nelson Toyota.
The third-gen Tundra is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine with the option of adding an electric motor for extra power. The hybrid powertrain generates 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, good enough to tow up to 12,000 pounds and haul 1,940 pounds in its bed. This is an excellent choice for truck owners seeking exceptional capability without sacrificing fuel economy.
The Toyota Tundra is a hardworking truck in more ways than one. Its technology hub has been totally reworked this year and now features a large, 14-inch touch screen with wireless smartphone compatibility, making it easy to stay connected on the go. Those little conveniences that make all the difference while on a job here in Dixon, Illinois.
The all-new Tundra TRD Pro comes with forged alloy wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, an off-road FOX® suspension, and a TRD aluminum skid plate to help you conquer the wilds. And with Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control, off-road obstacles in your path are far from troublesome.
The all-new Toyota Tundra will be available at Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, beginning in early 2022. Call today to reserve yours!
