2020 Toyota Supra glistening in the sun

The 2020 Toyota Supra Is Available Near St Cloud, MN

The 2020 Toyota Supra is now available at St Cloud Toyota and sports car enthusiasts are raving about it. Make no mistake, this isn’t car for just anyone. If you consider yourself an avid car enthusiast, or you can’t get enough of The Fast and the Furious film franchise, then this might be the car for you.

What’s New for the 2020 Model?

With a sports car like the Toyota Supra, it’s all about control and speed. Toyota has found a way to optimize these features through a balanced design for improved weight distribution. In the 2020 model, the engine and transmission have been lowered to achieve a lower center of gravity. Speaking of the engine, under the hood is a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque.

In addition, the powerplant has been repositioned and now sits even further back in the rear for better handling. The car body is also wider than its predecessor, further contributing to improved vehicle stability. The end-result is a noticeable improvement in agility and better car/road connection.

Redesigned Wheels and Shocks

The wheels are constructed from forged billet aluminum, making them lighter without sacrificing gripping ability. The shocks are also made to soften and stiffen in response to road conditions. This is made possible due to the car ECU’s Adaptive Variable Suspension that “reads” the road and disseminate the information to the shocks, tires, and other components. In turn, these parts respond accordingly for top-notch performance and parts longevity.

SUV or Crossover near Sartell, MN?

The SUV and crossover are among the most popular vehicle segments in North America. However, what is a crossover, exactly? Car buyers tend to use the term interchangeably with an SUV. While the two may appear strikingly similar on the outside, they are actually quite different at the core. St Cloud Toyota carries both Toyota SUVs and crossovers near Sartell, MN.

What’s the Difference?

An SUV is built on a pickup truck’s platform, whereas a crossover uses a car’s platform. The latter also has what is called a unibody design, meaning the vehicle’s frame consists of a single piece. An SUV has a body-on-frame architecture. This means the frame consists of separate multiple parts. You can think of an SUV as a pickup truck with an enclosed body.

The term crossover is more rarely used. People tend to use the word SUV to describe the entire SUV/crossover segment. For example, we frequently hear the Toyota Highlander referred to as an SUV at our dealership. However, it is in fact a crossover. Some people also use the term crossover SUV to describe any vehicle that falls into either category.

Should I Choose an SUV or Crossover?

Simply put, crossovers are more like sedans. This is true in that they have a front-wheel-drive configuration with more nimble handling. We recommend crossovers for soccer moms and general commuting. SUVs, on the other hand, have the similar capabilities of a truck. By that we mean they have rear-wheel-drive, higher payloads, and higher towing capacity. We recommend SUVs if you regularly travel off-roads, carry bulky equipment, or are looking for an alternative to a light pickup truck.

Come by our dealership today to see our latest SUV and crossover models. One of our dealers can recommend a Toyota SUV or Crossover for purchase or lease based on your user needs.

Check Out Our Used SUV Inventory

SUVs remain one of the most popular vehicle segments. If a new model is out of your budget at the moment, then consider a used Toyota SUV near Waite Park, MN. You have quite a number of selections among our pre-owned and certified pre-owned inventory.

The Best Used SUVs

Some vehicles hold up better over the years than others; they’re also historically better at retaining their value. Let’s examine some SUVs that were distinguished for their longevity, value retention, and additional factors that make them a good choice for used car buyers.

The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser was listed by Edmunds as among the best used three-row SUVs. The auto review site cited factors, such as its robust V8 engine and Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System. Similarly, the Toyota Highlander made a similar list under Used SUVs with the Best Gas Mileage.

Kelley Blue Book also released its own list of top used SUVs. The 2011 Toyota Venza, the 2008 Toyota Highlander, and 2012 Toyota RAV4 made the site’s list of 10 Best Used SUVs Under $10,000. That’s pretty impressive for a single auto brand to fill three of the 10 slots in a single list.

That’s not all; Autobytel released its own similar list. The 2016 Toyota 4Runner, 2016 Toyota Highlander, and 2016 Toyota RAV4 were among its list of 9 Most Dependable SUVs. Reliability, of course, is a huge factor when considering used cars.

Stop by Our Dealership to See What’s Available

2020 Toyota Sienna Overview

Why buy a minivan in 2020? It’s been a long time since the heyday of the minivan, but the Toyota Sienna keeps rolling on into the new decade regardless and shows no signs of stopping.
