Toyota Tundra TRD Sport

The New 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport

Haul more than just stuff.

There’s a new king of the streets: the 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport. This truck brings the attitude with exclusive exterior features like LED headlights with smoked housings, a powerful hood scoop and a black mesh grille. The 20-in. alloy wheels with black-accent finish keep it all looking stylish, too. Underneath it all is a sport-tuned suspension featuring upgraded sway bars and Bilstein® dampers—all tuned by the gurus at TRD. Best of all, every 2018 Tundra comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), 12 an advanced suite of technologies designed to give you the ultimate in on-road peace of mind.

2018 Toyota Camry Wi-Fi Connect

I am obsessed with the next generation Entune 3.0 system with a Wi-Fi hotspot in the new Toyota Camry! This is a game-changer. It allows you the opportunity to hook up to the internet and read up on the day’s news or stream your favorite episode of that show you missed last night (raise your hand if you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Game of Thrones yet). Obviously, you would do this as a passenger and not as the driver. However, there’s nothing wrong with pulling over to the side of the road and responding to that work email you forgot to get to before you left the house. 

Enjoy your complimentary Wi-Fi hotspot trial for 6 months/2 GB of data (whichever comes first) in your new Camry. Connect up to 5 devices to the internet at the speed of 4G LTE.

Toyota Helps U.S. Army Veteran with Human Support Robot

Toyota Helps U.S. Army Veteran with Human Support Robot

Summary: Romy Camargo was shot in the back of the neck while fighting in Afghanistan in 2008. Instead of asking “why me”, he and his wife, Gaby, opened the nonprofit Stay In Step Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center, a recovery center that provides treatment, rehabilitation and support services to veterans and civilians with spinal-cord injuries. Camargo continues to serve his country, just not in the way he originally planned. He and his family took an unimaginable tragedy and said: how can we help others? Toyota teamed with Camargo to test out their new support robot technology. Continue reading for the full story.

On September 16, 2008, while fighting in Afghanistan, Chief Warrant Officer-3 Romulo Camargo (Romy) and his 7th Special Forces Group were ambushed by Taliban forces spraying bullets and rocket grenades at the American soldiers. Camargo was shot in the back of the neck, causing paralysis from the neck down. The next years would be a challenge for Romy and his loved ones, but a fight the Camargo family was willing to take on. 

Romy and Toyota completed their first in-home trial of Toyota’s Human Support Robot, or HSR at the Camargo family home in Daytona, Florida. The HSR is the first of its kind for personal use. Toyota has committed to bettering the lives of individuals on and off the road with such advancements like “partner robots” which aim to assist people with everyday activities. These significant advancements in applied advanced technologies will help people with limited mobility, including seniors and those who are disabled.

One Step Closer to the 2018 Toyota Camry

2018 Toyota Camry Kentucky Production Launch

Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., (TMMK) celebrated the production launch of the 2018 Toyota Camry. The excitement has been building for months and culminated with the assembly of the first next-generation Camry. “The launch of the next-generation Camry is important for Toyota in America, and expands the company’s footprint in and commitment to Kentucky,” said Wil James, president, TMMK. “We are proud to be the first in North America to produce a vehicle with TNGA. It’s a testament to the skill and dedication of our team members.”

The 2018 Camry will set the benchmark in the mid-size sedan segment. It is the first vehicle in North America designed and manufactured with Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), a completely new strategy to the way the company designs, engineers, and manufactures its vehicles. TNGA will improve performance of all models, including increased fuel efficiency, more responsive handling, and a more stable, comfortable feel while driving.

The next-generation Camry has a sleeker profile that offers improved aerodynamics, a lower center of gravity, and a more rigid body, allowing for a more comfortable and stable ride. In addition, engineers incorporated a number of new noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) countermeasures that were previously found exclusively on luxury models such as sound-absorbing insulation in the hood and upper and lower fender separator, as well as foam/vibration dampening materials throughout the vehicle. The driver-focused design also features the highest grade of soft touch and premium materials on all surfaces of the cabin – dashboard, instrument panel, center console, door trim, etc. Vehicles will begin arriving at dealers in late summer.

Mark Buehrle Day at Gauranteed Rate Field

Mark Buehrle Day

On June 24, 2017, the Chicago White Sox retired Mark Buehrle’s #56 jersey. We had the distinct honor to witness that ceremony and revel at one of the best pitchers in recent memory.

During the ceremony, the Chicago White Sox presented Buehrle with a Toyota Tundra, and emblazoned across the back: 27 Up. 27 Down. This, of course, in reference to Buehrle’s perfect game in 2009.

Congratulations, Mark Buehrle! Thank you for the memories.
