Prepare for the 2020 Toyota GR Supra

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 9th, 2019 at 8:03 PM

St. Cloud Toyota knows that Toyota isn’t usually the first name that comes to mind when people think of sports cars. Toyota’s made a name recently in efficiency and reliability, rather than luxury performance. However, Toyota is getting ready to shake up its reliable, tech-savvy brand and break into the high-performance market, thanks to one upcoming vehicle in the lineup: the 2020 Toyota GR Supra.

The Toyota Supra is a legacy sports car last produced in the US by Toyota in 1998. But now it’s getting ready to tear up the tracks once again, with a turbocharged 3-liter V6 engine belting out a thrilling 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. Send that power through the Toyota’s 8-speed ZF 8HP 8-speed transmission, and through an electronically controlled rear differential, and you’ve got a vehicle designed to dominate whatever road it’s on. Raw horsepower meets modern technology in the 2020 Toyota GR Supra, making every second on the street count.

Inside the 2020 Toyota GR Supra, Toyota has updated it for the 21st century. The exclusive Supra Connect system gives you access to a wide variety of features such as Automatic Emergency Calling, Concierge Service, and Battery Guard, to tell you when your battery runs low. An available Supra Connect iPhone® app gives you remote access to your 2020 Toyota Supra, straight from your phone. Apple CarPlay™ comes standard, which allows you to integrate your smartphone directly with the dashboard, so you can access your apps, music, and navigation completely hands-free.

So when the 2020 Toyota GR Supra comes to our lots, you’re going to want to get to our Waite Park, MN Toyota dealership for the fastest, most intense Toyota test drive in decades.

Toyota Safety Sense™ – Advanced Security for the 21st Century

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019 at 8:57 PM

St. Cloud Toyota knows that the vast majority of Toyota cars for sale at our Waite Park, MN dealership have busy families they want to protect on the road. So, to make sure that our safety standards are always top-notch, Toyota has been making more of their new models with standard advanced safety features than ever before, and today we want to help explain some of them.

One phrase you’ll see a lot is Toyota Safety Sense™ – this is the umbrella name for the suite of advanced safety features that comes standard on many new 2020 Toyotas and will be increasing in availability as the years move along.

Arguably the best safety feature of Toyota Safety Sense has been Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This takes Cruise Control into the age of self-driving cars – using radar mounted to the front of your Toyota, this feature reads the speeds of the vehicles in front of you while at cruise the highway, altering your Toyota model’s speed to stay with the flow of traffic, even coming to a complete stop if necessary.

But Toyota Safety Sense has other life-saving technology included as well. The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection utilizes the camera and radar systems to detect obstacles in front of the vehicle and can use emergency braking to help you avoid a collision. It’s a vital component that makes your commute safer for everyone.

There are several other features that you can try out for yourself in a new 2020 Toyota car at St. Cloud Toyota. So come in today for a great deal on a new Toyota or other pre-owned cars to make sure your next vehicle is as safe as possible. See you soon!

It delivers the response, the sound, and the power that racing fans crave. An electronically-controlled rear differential provides next-level road analysis and syncs your engine and powertrain to provide maximum power at a moment’s notice, so you can maneuver how you want, when you want. As you drive, the full-color Head-Up Display provides you with your speed, navigation information, and more.

In terms of the 2020 Toyota Supra tech, the Supra Connect technology suite provides you with an array of in-car features, like real-time traffic info, automatic emergency calling, and concierge service. When connected to your iPhone via the Supra Connect iPhone app, you can do even more, right from your phone – like activating ventilation and locking or unlocking your doors.

Stay Safe this Summer with Vehicles from St. Cloud Toyota!

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, August 5th, 2019 at 9:57 PM

As summer enters its last hurrah, the time has never been better to discover the open road in a new or Toyota Certified pre-owned vehicle. However, you’re probably going to get a lot of people traveling too, and that always leads to increased risks. So today, we want to share a couple of common road hazards, how you can avoid them, and most importantly, how your vehicle can keep you safe when your senses fail.

No one likes driving in the rain, no matter how much we get used to it. The water on the road is the perfect way for your tires to lose their grip, and less grip on the tires means less accurate handling and reduces your overall control on the road. By lowering your speed, you’re giving the wheels the precious few seconds they need to keep you safe, so you don’t spin out of control. But if you’ve got a vehicle like the 2019 Toyota RAV4 hybrid with all-wheel-drive, then you’ll have a much easier time in dangerous conditions, since the all-wheel-drive system ensures that all four wheels of the vehicle are given equal power by the engine, unlike traditional just rear- and front-wheel-drive systems.

Keeping an eye out for the other cars on the road is something that we’re all trained to do. If we see any distracted drivers, remember to slow down and try to let them pass as safely as possible. If they get too close for comfort, knowing that the vehicle you’re driving, like the 2019 Toyota Camry, is equipped with a safety system like Toyota Safety Sense™  can be a great help. This system will keep you covered with active features like a Pre-Collision System that can apply your emergency breaks in a crisis.

There’s so much to explore out there, so rest assured when you drive away in a new or pre-owned car from our Waite Park, MN Toyota dealership, you’re going to be keeping you and your passengers as safe as possible. Have fun!

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 at 6:54 PM

If you’re running around the hot summer days in the St. Cloud, MN area, then you definitely need your Toyota to be fit as a fiddle, especially its air conditioning system. And if you’ve been Googling for a “Toyota dealership near me” that can help you keep your Toyota cars healthy, then all you need to do is come down to St. Cloud Toyota. Our experienced staff of mechanical professionals cAN give your vehicle the once-over it needs to make sure it’s running well, and that your AC is as frosty as ever.

Keeping regular maintenance appointments will also help our team to discover little problems with your new or pre-owned vehicles before they become big issues, saving you big expenses in the process. Now that’s beating the heat in more ways than one! There are several effective strategies you can do to ensure your car stays cool this summer – here are a couple.

In addition to maintenance, there are several gadgets you can buy to keep your car cool. One of the simplest and most popular is a sun shield – a large screen that fits into your windshield (front or back) and has a reflective surface that faces out of the vehicle. The sun’s rays hit it and bounce right off, which causes your vehicle to heat up more slowly. They also protect the interior of the vehicle from sun damage, so the leather seats and dashboard of your 2019 Toyota Highlander don’t prematurely fade because they’ve sat out in the sun too long. Cracking your windows has long been conventional wisdom but adding a ventilation fan to that mix can produce some incredible results. Since it keeps the air moving in, out, and around your Toyota’s cabin, it’s perfect for equalizing your cabin’s temperature with the outside.

So what are you waiting for? Get cool today with a trip to our St. Cloud Toyota dealership.
