Toyota has debuted the all new Prius Prime at the New York Auto Show. The new Prius plug-in hybrid can reportedly get up to 120 mpg! The Prius Prime can be charged by a regular household outlet in 5.5 hours and it also features lane departure sensing, automatic emergency braking, automatic parallel and perpendicular parking and radar cruise. The headlights come standard with LED bulbs to further save energy. Toyota claims that a fully charged Prius Prime with a full tank should be able to get a driving range of 600 miles. Interestingly, the Prius operates by utilizing all of its battery power before switching into hybrid mode. The Prius Prime is shown in a teal color and we can’t help but wonder if Toyota used its solar-reflective paint to further optimize the car.
This comes with news that by the end of 2017, Toyota has plans to include automatic braking as a standard feature in most of its vehicle makes. Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota Motor North America, said about standardizing this feature, “At Toyota, we are committed to creating better ways to move for everyone. High-level driver assist technologies can do more than help protect people in the event of a crash; they can help prevent some crashes from ever happening in the first place. We are proud to help lead this industry in standardizing these systems and bring automated braking to our customers sooner rather than later.” The industry has 2022 as a deadline, but Toyota plans to lead the pack by standardizing this feature 5 years ahead of schedule. Studies have shown that this feature can decrease crashes by 40%.
Toyota, as a part of their Walk in My Boots program, donated insulated winter boots and socks to 200 participants of The Salvation Army Conner Creek Corps Community Center located on Detroit’s Eastside and The Salvation Army Booth Services of Detroit, a homeless shelter for primarily women and single mothers and their children. In addition, Toyota donated $15,000 to The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit and hosted a “Thanksgiving-style” buffet luncheon by Unique Food Management to the 200 families. Michael Rouse, vice president, Diversity, Philanthropy and Community Affairs, Toyota Motor North America, said about the donation, “At Toyota, we want to build more than just great cars and trucks. We want to help build great communities; and in times like these, we must remember to help one another. We want the work that is being done at The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit to continue for years to come. And, we hope that our donation of winter boots and socks will help to enrich lives…one step at a time.”
Walk in My Boots is a community outreach program that is now in its fifth year with over 1,000 boots and $65,000 donated in Detroit. The project has also been held in Chicago (third year), Washington DC (second year) and, this year, in Baltimore. The focus is to provide socks and boots to those less fortunate so that they can stay warm. Alva Mason, Founder of Toyota’s Walk in My Boots program and Director of African American Business Strategy and Corporate Communications said about the program, “It’s so important to be able to give back. I am so happy to be a part of Toyota, and Toyota allows me to be able to create programs such as Walk in My Boots. This is one of the best days of the year for me because I’m always looking forward to doing this, and it means so much that we’ve expanded this program.”

Toyota Research Institute has hired a team of six scientists to build a car that is incapable of causing a crash. Toyota wanted to launch this institute to focus specifically on creating safer cars. TRI CEO and former MIT Professor Dr. Gil Pratt said about the project, “I’ll spare you the math, but they’ll work to measure the robustness of automated vehicle systems not only against risks that are known, but risks that haven’t been seen before.” One example he provided was that a car that is able to determine the safest way to maneuver around fallen debris. Toyota also hopes this group, which includes two MIT professors, the former head of Google Robotics, and 2 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) alums, will find a way to increase access to cars and forms of mobility as well as fast-tracking research in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The group has been given a 1 billion dollar investment to sustain them for five years. Pratt says, “We have a tentative timeline for internal R&D products that we will work hard to deliver to Toyota in Japan.Probably the public will not see the products we come out with, but the company will be able to utilize the work we do.”
New Series of Documentary Shorts from Toyota TeenDrive365 Explores the Emotional Rite of Passage When Teens Receive Their Driver’s Licenses.
Since Toyota TeenDrive365’s launch in November 2013, millions of people have engaged with its online and in-person resources. Earlier this year, the program introduced a new distracted driving simulator that uses Oculus Rift, the latest virtual reality technology, to bring the dangers of distracted driving to life for parents and teens.
In a new series of documentary shorts, Toyota has partnered with three award-winningGetty Images Reportage photojournalists to explore this major rite of passage through the experiences of three families in Los Angeles, Boston and St. Petersburg, Fla. The series is part of TeenDrive365, Toyota’s comprehensive teen safety initiative that helps parents and teens become safer drivers together.

How often should I change my oil?
Substances like dust, metallic shavings and even antifreeze contaminate engine oil. As these contaminants are whipped into the oil, they form sludge. The sludge adheres to parts of the engine, causing it to perform less efficiently. If the oil is not changed, the sludge can eventually cause engine failure.
Oil change intervals depend on vehicle make, model and year, as well as on driving conditions.Always refer to your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation for your specific vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend oil changes every 3,000 to 7,500 miles, the lower range for “severe” conditions, the upper range for “normal” conditions.
Severe driving conditions include:
- Extensive idling or stop-and-go traffic
- Extremely cold weather (less than 10 degrees),
or extreme heat (more than 90 degrees)
- Extreme humidity
- Towing a trailer or hauling heavy materials
- Mountainous, dusty or de-iced road conditions
