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.
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.
Noted automotive journalist ALAN GELL recently attended a special media Ride-N-Drive at the FC Dallas Toyota soccer stadium. Toyota was introducing their new Camry, Sienna, and Yaris. One of the special guests was PHI PHUNG. He is the Customer Sales Manager for Harman Automotive, specializing in the sound systems for all Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
Harmon Automotive specializes under several audio name plates, including AKG, Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, Lexicon, Revel, and Mark Levinson.
Alan and Phi discuss the newest innovations and systems installed in the new 2015 Toyota Camry. The new Camry has an all new exterior, except for the roof panel. The front end is more muscular and bold in appearance.
I couldn't wait to hear what he had to say before he sped away. 17 days in havahee no tax refunds for youi and me.
He proudly called on only leftist women no males and he ran out the clock with mickey mouse gossip. I hear you are moving to Brusells he said to a giggly girl who reminded me of Clinton's harmonica teacher. I was waiting to see what sprouts in Brussels.
Of course he played the race card but left out that a communist mayor in NYC ordered a crackdown on loosie cigarette sellers and the ghetto merchants marched on one police plaza demanding the arrest of big overweight black guys with asthma selling untaxed cigarettes. From The Mayor to top command the word went down to a Black precinct commander to take down Gardens.
The black precinct commander immediately ordered a black female sergeant to take an arrest team to seize the big guy. The film of the takedown has edited out the black police sergeant a female who ordered police officers to arrest Gardens. Gardens died of a heart attack and hour after his arrest.
There is good money in race cards.
Jesse Jackson scored two billion on Toyota when they did an add showing gold teeth and big red lips on a black cutomer.
Now Sony is under intimidation. they want no trouble with the enemy of Japan,. North Korea..
Maybe if we were North Koreans we would not take to kindly to a movie company making jokes about our sad culture showing the assassination of their leader. If North Korea made a movie about the assassination of Obama. How many Americans would find that funny? Sony made a decision based on the number of American lawsuits that could cripple their corporation. Many actors like George Clowney actually believe they defeated Iran on the Hollywood set. Obama said Sony should have talked to me.Who will threaten Sony when they make Benghazi?
Lots to talk about on tonight's episode.
First we start with Sprint, the Cup Series title sponsor since 2004 (was originally Nextel) has announced that they will not return after their contract expires after the 2016 season. We discuss why Sprint may be making this change, and who the possible replacements for them could be...
The season opening exhibition race, the Sprint Unlimited has also gone under a couple of changes. The pole sitters, as well as past Daytona pole sitters, and all of the Chasers from 2014 will be eligible for the 2015 race. These changes are known as the Danica clause. We'll discuss our thoughts on these changes for 2015.
Also, some more unfortunate for driver, Brian Vickers. Vickers, the current driver of the #55 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota in the Sprint Cup Series will now miss at least the start of the 2015 season now due to an illness once again. This will be the 3rd time in his career that he will miss significant time due to illness.
Frank Kerr has also been hired for Richard Petty Motorsports' NASCAR Xfinity Series team.
And on the truck side, Ray Black, Jr will run for rookie of the year at SS-Greenlight Racing in 2015, as he will run the full schedule.
Also, if we have time, we will talk about the changes talking place on pit road now that the NASCAR officials will no longer be in every pit stall.
