Toyota is behind many of Canada’s best-selling vehicles, and the brand is known for delivering an innovative, stylish, and affordable lineup of cars, trucks, SUVs, and hybrids each year. 2022 will be no exception as Toyota unveils exciting changes to many of its most beloved vehicles, including the Tundra, Tacoma, RAV4, Corolla, and more. We know that Quesnel drivers will fall in love with the 2022 Toyota lineup, but what about some of the industry’s toughest experts?

We combed press releases and reviews to find honest feedback on the 2022 Toyota vehicle lineup. Here’s what the critics have to say! 

“When it comes to true off-road performance, taking the trail less travelled isn’t suited for amateurs. That’s where TRD Pro comes in. From the beginning, TRD Pro vehicles were designed to take off-road performance to the next level using parts designed and tested by the Toyota Racing Development team. The Tacoma TRD Pro is taking the next step in its evolution. For the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro, off-road performance goes up a notch – literally! The next-generation Tacoma TRD Pro will employ TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shocks designed to deliver exceptional on- and off-road performance, but the crucial suspension change will be a taller suspension lift – 1.5 inches up front and 0.5 inches at the rear.”

“#Disappointment is not likely to be a hashtag when the new (2022 Tundra) is fully revealed, potentially on September 19 if we are to extract clues from the confetti of teaser shots Toyota has dropped recently. This is a monumental change for the Tundra, one of the most reliable trucks on the road today, one that commands, because of that reliability, a higher resale value than almost any other vehicle. (It has) a new and lighter but stronger frame, new engine, new interior, new technology, new features… new everything!”

“The 2022 Toyota Corolla is now in its 12th generation. When a car model lives that long, you know it's doing something right. For decades, the Corolla has been the compact car that's known for its good value with high fuel economy and a reputation for reliability. This latest Corolla still lives up to these core values, only it adds flashier styling and a more premium-feeling interior than its predecessors. The Corolla is also available as a hatchback or a hybrid sedan variant. Pros: Long list of standard advanced safety features, easy-to-use controls, comfortable ride quality, high fuel economy.”

“The 2022 Toyota Prius remains a remarkably efficient hatchback, (and) is the only compact hybrid that offers all-wheel drive. The Prius lineup adds a Nightshade model that's available in three different metallic colours: Silver, Super White, and Midnight Black. It brings black 17-inch wheels for front-drive models and 15-inchers with black lug nuts for all-wheel-drive examples. Inside, heating for the steering wheel and front seats comes standard.”

“When the pavement ends is where the 4Runner shines. When equipped with 4-wheel drive, the Toyota 4Runner is an excellent off-roader. Any SUV can handle the occasional gravel road or muddy trail. But the 4Runner can do some serious, technical off-roading and rock climbing, especially in the more off-road-oriented trims like the TRD Pro model. The body is narrow enough to navigate through tight spaces, and the ground clearance can go as high as 9.6 inches from the factory. Under the hood of every 2022 4Runner lies a trusty 4.0-liter V6 engine producing 270 horsepower. This tried-and-true engine is a good fit for off-road adventures thanks to its proven durability and respectable power. The 4Runner TRD Sport, which is an all-new trim for 2022, promises enhanced on-road driving dynamics thanks to a sport-tuned X-REAS suspension system previously reserved for the pricey Limited trim, plus a sporty appearance package.”

“Minivans aren't as popular as they used to be, but the segment is still just as competitive as it's ever been. The Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, and Kia Carnival are formidable rivals, but the Toyota Sienna stands out as the only minivan that's available exclusively as a hybrid. For the 2022 model year, Toyota welcomes the new Sienna Woodland Special Edition. Spacious and sensible, the Sienna is a great people-mover, with plenty of room for passengers and their gear. Available second-row captain's chairs are particularly plush with built-in ottomans and the ability to slide back up to 25 inches. Unlike every other sub-$40,000 minivan on the market, Sienna's astoundingly long driving range means you can get more errands done before having to refuel. That's a benefit you'll feel in your wallet and in the time you'll save not filling up as much.”
