The RAV4 SUV has been popular for a number of years, but the combination of Toyota’s Sport Utility Vehicle with a battery operated powertrain makes it special. The RAV4 EV is a collaboration with Tesla Motors, who designed and produced the battery and electric powertrain.
The new Toyota RAV4 EV provides a quiet, comfortable, and smooth ride with easy handling, due mostly to the low center of gravity as well as a low coefficient of drag. The front bumper, grill, side mirrors, rear spoiler, and the underbody were all re-styled to provide the new sedan-like ride. The battery pack is mounted near the center of the vehicle and very low.
Toyota has unveiled their new 2015 Toyota Camry and a number of journalists were invited to attend a special ride-and-drive event at FC Dallas soccer field in November. Long-time automotive journalist ALAN GELL was on-hand and during the day, had a special one-on-one interview with BRIAN WILLIAMS.
Brian Williams had conducted the 'walk-around' for the journalists earlier in the day, explaining all the differences in the new model compared to last year's model. Brian is with Product Sales and Engagment at Toyota headquarters in California.
Toyota first introduced the Camry in 1983 and has sold over ten million of the small sedans. This 2015 model has an all-new exterior using all re-designed sheet metal panels -- except for the roof.

NASCAR’s BACK!!! . . . and, that means so is our Frat House Sports Radio Network’s Race Trim MotorSports Hour, and hosts Uncle Mark and Brandon have already got a lot of grease on their hands in the garage.
It seems through every step of the pre-event hype to Sunday’s Daytona 500, there has been some sort of controversy – (1) fights following the Unlimited; (2) wrecks in pole qualifying; (3) uncertainty followed by bickering at the Duals; and, (4) suspensions just before the race.
Kurt Busch has been indefinitely suspended following allegations of domestic abuse; Chevrolet has stepped away from his sponsorship; NASCAR has dropped all of his merchandise from their web site and from all vendors at Daytona International Speedway and had him escorted by police to his airplane out of town. The guys are debating “The Outlaw’s” situation. And want to hear from you, the fans!
Plus, beginning the season have the Toyota’s solved their engine problems and will this lead the way for Joe Gibbs Racing to dominate; and, who are some of the drivers that might make “The Chase” this year that didn’t in 2014.
“Sidekick” brings you his NASCAR Fantasy picks right from the track at Daytona, and “Frat House Mike” updates the NHRA Drag-Racing season.
As usual, they've got the coffee. You bring the donuts and bring enough for the guys parked right now over in the "Frat House Sports Garage" . . . oh, and be sure to give them a call at 347 - 826 - 9964!
