History is being made in Blue Springs, Mississippi as the next generation of Toyota Corolla models is set for production on March 18th. In one of last month’s blog posts, we talked about the new 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, which will achieve a higher fuel economy than Toyota Prius models. Now, we have a set date on when these 2020 Toyota models are being made. We’re eager to have these updated Toyota models at St. Cloud Toyota later this year.

The 2020 Toyota Corolla

Toyota has invested over $170 million dollars into the next generation of Toyota Corollas, and it shows. Offering all-new technology, design, and safety, the 2020 Toyota Corolla is the sedan of the future. It stands out from the crowd with its standard LED headlights and a refined build. It offers maximum customizability with its three engine options and five trim levels. One of the engine options is a hybrid, which will achieve a fuel economy of up to 50 mpg combined. Most importantly, it’s the perfected version of everything drivers love about the Toyota Corolla.

Not only is this good news for drivers, but it’s great news for Blue Springs locals, as well. The manufacturing of the next-generation Toyota Corolla has created over 400 jobs. This means that Toyota’s Mississippi plant now has almost 2,000 workers.

The Chicago Auto Show is always a major event in the car community. Showcasing new models and plans for the future, it’s a one-stop shop for all things related to automotive innovation. The event started on February 9th and spanned through the 18th. If you kept up with the Auto Show news, you’re probably surprised about the number of great Toyota vehicles debuting this year.

Toyota showcased its 2020 models for the Toyota Corolla, Toyota RAV4, and the new Toyota Supra. However, the brand didn’t only flaunting new car models. Toyota decided to kick off the auto show by donating $15,000 to the Chicago homeless community. This is known as the “Toyota Walk in My Boots” campaign, which the brand first started in 2015. Salvation Army has teamed up with Toyota to make the event possible.

Toyota has donated over 200 pairs of socks and winter boots so far this year to the Salvation Army, along with $15,000 toward causes for the homeless population in the greater Chicago area. The BOGS boots and Smartwool socks are designed to endure the harsh weather conditions that Chicago winters can bring.  In addition, Toyota hosted a buffet of warm meals for local residents who RSVP. The feast offers classic Thanksgiving-style food.

The Toyota Difference

As your local Toyota dealer, St. Cloud Toyota is proud to serve a company with a greater cause. Being a car dealership is not just about selling cars to us. It’s about forming a relationship with the local community and giving back. Here in Waite Park, MN, we know just how cold it can get. Everyone deserves to stay warm during harsh winter months. Following Toyota’s example, we enjoy hosting local events like our recent Chili Cook Off.

When you buy a new Toyota car from us, know that you’re not only buying a vehicle for yourself. You’re also helping support our causes in the local community by making Toyota charity events possible.

 

 

Toyota Corolla Gets Over 50 MPG for 2020

In the United States, most sedans and light-weight cars achieve a combined fuel economy of around 27 mpg. Toyota models have consistently hit higher numbers. The Toyota Prius is especially known for its fuel efficiency, achieving up to an estimated 50 mpg on some models.

Now, Toyota has come out with the 2020 Toyota Corolla. This new Toyota car offers hybrid and non-hybrid engine options that boast a fuel economy good enough to rival the Toyota Prius.

The 2020 Toyota Corolla Fuel Efficiency

2020 Toyota Corolla models range from standard gasoline engines to a hybrid option. The basic manual 2.0 L four-cylinder engine achieves an estimated 32 mpg combined. However, if you choose the 2.0 L four-cylinder automatic configuration, you can expect to make up to 40 mpg on the highway, and a combined rating of 34 mpg. If you’re a commuter, the 2020 Toyota Corolla is the perfect car for you.

However, the most impressive version of the new Toyota Corolla is the hybrid. It boasts a gas mileage greater than what has long been the most fuel-efficient Toyota car: the Toyota Prius. Achieving an estimated 53 miles to the gallon in the city and 52 on the highway, the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid just can’t be beat.

This excellent fuel economy is made possible by the car’s 1.8 L I-4 engine, which includes two efficient electric motors. This is the same engine technology used to power the Toyota Prius.

Buying a 2020 Toyota Corolla

Whether you’re on the road a lot or you’re just a savvy car shopper, the 2020 Toyota Corolla is the perfect sedan to help you save money. This classic Toyota model now offers record-breaking fuel efficiency and technology of the future.

If you’re a driver in the St. Cloud, MN area, be sure to stay up to date on our new Toyota car inventory. We’d love to see you test drive the 2020 Toyota Corolla at our Toyota dealership in Waite Park, MN.

2020 Toyota Supra Is the Fastest Toyota Car

By The Dealership | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 at 8:23 PM

Ever since it was announced that the Toyota Supra was making a comeback, our Toyota dealership in St. Cloud has been waiting for the details. Finally, the anticipated 2020 Toyota Supra debuted at the Detroit Auto Show. When this upgraded Toyota Supra hits the roads in Minnesota, it will be the first Toyota Supra car released since 2002.

Over the last 17 years, Toyota has developed technology that’s been utilized to create a Toyota Supra unlike you’ve ever seen before. Recently, the first model sold for over $2 million dollars. Luckily for all of us, that won’t be the MSRP.

When it comes to the exterior of the new Toyota Supra, the camouflage is gone. We have now seen this sporty car in its naked glossy coloring, and it’s even more head-turning than expected. Its aggressive styling yet modest grille design combine to create a very elegant look.

However, beauty is not just paint-deep. For starters, the 2020 Toyota Supra will be released in two initial grades, the 3.0 and the 3.0 Premium. The 3.0 Premium will offer added comfort features like heated seats.
What’s more, this sporty car produces 335 horsepower and 365 lbs.-ft. of torque. These impressive numbers are made possible by its 3.0L twin-scroll turbo inline six BMW engine. If that’s not enough for you, a four-cylinder version is currently in the making.

It’s worth noting, too, that the 2020 Toyota Supra is the quickest Toyota car ever made. It can reach a top speed of 155 mph, and it accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds!

If your New Year’s resolution is to buy that sports car you’ve been saving up for, be sure to check our inventory of new Toyota cars to get the Toyota Supra as soon as it’s available.

St. Cloud Toyota’s 5th Annual Chili Cook Off

When the cold weather of January comes along, there’s nothing better than sipping a warm bowl of chili. Five years ago, our Toyota dealership in Waite Park, MN decided to share some coziness with the community by creating our Chili Cook-Off competition. Since then, it has become one of our favorite ways to give back to the community.

When and Where Will the Cook-Off Be?

The Cook-Off will be hosted this Saturday, January 19th at 11am. It will be hosted here at St. Cloud Toyota, and our staff members will be making the chili for you using their homemade recipes! If you’re looking for great comfort food in St. Cloud this weekend, our dealership is the place to be. We will have everything ready for you by 11am, so arrive around then. We will be packing up leftovers around 2pm, so we won’t keep you all day!

Best Chili Contest

Is this the year the streak will be broken?

Not only will our team members be cooking chili for you, but they’ll be competing against each other. You will be the judges, and whichever chili gets the most votes wins! What’s better than getting free food while pretending to be Gordon Ramsay for a day?

The winner of the contest will receive a chili trophy, one of the most prestigious awards here at St. Cloud Toyota.

As you can see, we have a win-streak currently ongoing. Will that streak be broken this year? One thing’s for sure; our staff members will be working extra hard this year to make the best chili.

The best thing about the Chili Cook-Off is not the free food or competition, though, but the community. Sharing a meal together as a community helps to give back to our valued customers during these harsh winter months. Besides, who doesn’t want to start off the new year with chili?

We look forward to seeing you then!
