Toyota: Brand Value and Models That Move

One of today’s largest and most popular automakers in the world, it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t owned a Toyota at one point in their lives. Originating as an offshoot of machine maker Toyota Industries in 1937, today, Toyota has become a standard against which many automakers measure up to.

About Toyota

One of the most Respected Names in the Automotive World

Following the conclusion of World War II, Toyota executives and engineers began touring the bustling American automotive industry. Through these observations, the company developed the Toyota Production System, a highly efficient method of manufacturing that could catapult the automaker’s productivity. 

During the earlier years, Toyota’s offerings skewed towards affordable compact models. Amid America's muscle car era, these compact models would not see much success. However, with rising gas prices and tightening emission regulations throughout the 70s, Toyota was ready to provide a vehicle fitting the basic needs of most American drivers. 

From the 80s onwards, Toyota increased its foothold in the American market, introducing legendary vehicles such as the Land Cruiser and Supra. Joining the ever-popular Corolla model would be the Camry. Its next big stride would be the Prius, the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle. The Prius would become the face of hybrid vehicles everywhere, and along with it, Toyota would improve its worldwide reputation even more.

Today, Toyota remains one of the most respected names in the automotive world and an easy choice for anyone wanting to buy a new car. Thanks to its affordability, wide range of vehicles, and famous reliability, Toyota auctions have become tantalizing options.

Considered the first Crossover SUV, the RAV4 is the forefather of today’s most popular vehicle segment. Debuted in 1994, the Toyota RAV4 brought the perfect mix of SUV and compact car characteristics. Over the generations, the RAV4 has undoubtedly grown in size. However, this vehicle is still considered a cornerstone of the crossover segment. As Toyota’s best-selling vehicle in the US, there won’t be any shortage of these SUVs at Toyota auctions. The current fifth-generation RAV4 brings bolder stylings and the same outstanding characteristics that made the first generation so famous.

Toyota Corolla

The Corolla has become the world’s most-sold car for a good reason. The subcompact has been a reliable and affordable car since its introduction in 1966. The current Corolla offers a 1.8L four-cylinder making 139 hp and a 2.0L four-cylinder making 169 hp. Both engines come with stellar fuel economy. Offered as both a sedan and hatchback, the Corolla brings a comfortable interior and high-tech features.
