The 2012 Model Year Will Be Good For Toyota Buyers Some of Toyota’s best models are getting even better for 2012. 2012 model year vehicles, which will become available in central New York in the coming months, feature redesigns, upgrades and even price cuts. The changes include: The best-selling Camry is redesigned for 2012, with new styling and improved performance. Toyota’s engineers have managed to increase horsepower while at the same time increasing the fuel efficiency of the Camry’s engine. Despite these improvements, the MSRP of most 2012 Camrys will actually be lower than the 2011 models. The Camry Hybrid will see similar changes, including the drop in MSRP, while its fuel economy will increase significantly — from the 2011 model’s combined city and highway rating of 33 miles per gallon to an expected 41 miles per gallon in 2012. That will make it the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan on the market. The Prius nameplate is expanding into a whole family of vehicles, with the first new addition being the 2012 Prius v. The Prius v is a hybrid station wagon, allowing families to move more without sacrificing fuel economy. The Prius v will have a full 50 percent more cargo capacity than the current third-generation Prius. The Prius Plug-in will offer the ability to drive on all-electric power, and can be charged up from a standard wall socket. If you drive farther than the batteries can take you, the gasoline engine will kick in, and the car will drive like a regular Prius hybrid. The Prius c will also debut in 2012 as the smallest, most fuel-efficient member of the Prius family. The 2012 Yaris features a redesigned exterior, a totally new interior and more cargo space. The Toyota Tacoma, which is already the best-selling compact pickup in the country, will also receive a facelift and a new interior for the 2012 model year. These new Toyota models will begin arriving in central New York soon, at the NYE Automotive Group showroom in Oneida. You can contact us to learn more about the new 2012 models or stop by this autumn and be one of the first to take one out for a test drive.
