What Is Toyota Known For?

It is no secret that Toyota is one of the world’s largest vehicle manufacturing companies today. Through the years, Toyota gained its popularity and reputation by building high-quality models that keep their value over time. When you are looking to invest in a new vehicle, those are two very important things to consider for you and your family’s future.

Even before the Toyota Motor Corporation's founding in 1937, Kiichiro Toyoda’s values were inherited by those of his father Sakichi, who was driven by the need to improve and simplify the lives of workers through his inventions of looms, fabric preparation devices, and rotary engines. Toyoda followed in his father’s footsteps to simplify the lives of others and began developing and modifying inventions of his father’s until he became inspired and drawn towards the automotive industry in 1923 after the Great Kanto Earthquake devastated the railway system in Tokyo, leading to a demand for imported vehicles from the U.S. These imported vehicles played a critical role in the survival of the people and the infrastructure after the earthquake, and this guided Toyoda towards his calling.

Although Toyota Automotive may not have begun its operations in North America until 1957, the company’s values have been around for generations. From Toyoda’s family values grew business values, which led to Toyota Motor Corporation's values and mission to provide the reliable, quality, innovative vehicles drivers around the world know and love today.

A Quick Look at Toyota’s Top-Selling Models

Through the years, people all over the world have been drawn to Toyota’s values and its reputation for providing drivers with quality vehicles no matter their lifestyle. While all Toyota models throughout the brand’s extensive history have exhibited all-around excellence, there are models people seem to be more captivated by. Let us take a look at some of Toyota's top models of all time and of today.

One of Toyota’s top-selling models of all time is the Land Cruiser which was introduced in 1954 primarily for the Korean War. With time, the Land Cruiser continued its popularity as a military vehicle but has also become a pivotal example of an off-road champion. With a rugged design and impressive capabilities complemented by Toyota’s reliability, the Land Cruiser continues to be a fan favorite for an SUV. Unfortunately, after the 2021 model, the Land Cruiser will not be sold in the U.S. It will continue abroad, just not in North America, but we can only expect Toyota will continue to satisfy our needs for the capabilities and design of the Land Cruiser through its other SUV models.

Next on Toyota’s list of all-time top models is the Toyota Camry. This midsize car began production in 1982 and has continued its popularity, especially in the U.S. market, ever since. As a simple yet dependable vehicle, the Camry became the best-selling passenger car in the U.S. for 19 consecutive years. The compact Corolla, however, outshined the Camry and earned the title of the best-selling vehicle in the world.

The Toyota Corolla was first produced in 1966 for the Japanese market and made it to North America in 1968, and by 1974, it had become the world’s top-selling car. Although the Corolla began as a four-cylinder sedan with only 60 horsepower that took 17 seconds to get to 60 MPH, today, the Corolla is available in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the sedan to a hatchback, and for 2022, a subcompact SUV. All of these are powered by gas or hybrid engines that can produce up to 169 horsepower depending on which model and powertrain you choose.

As iconic as the Land Cruiser, the Camry, and the Corolla are, they are not the only models Toyota is known for. Another staple to Toyota’s success more recently has been its midsize Tacoma pickup which made its debut to the market for the 1995 model year, and its compact SUV, the RAV4, released in 1996, as well as its larger midsize, three-row sibling, the Highlander, which joined Toyota’s lineup for the 2001 model year. As history and reputation have demonstrated, with great quality and vehicles built with value, Toyota strives to satisfy drivers around the world with vehicles that last and will continue to appease its loyal customers and enthusiasts for generations to come.
