    Tundra will get a diesel engine by 2012 at the latest, using Toyota diesels and not Cumings.
    Matrix will have a total redesign by 2009
    New sports car with a hybrid 6 that will go from 0 to 60 in 3 secs. Car features wrap around cockpit seating for both driver and pass.
    Corolla gets a total revamp
    scion gets a van
    solara ends production by 2008
    prius gets a new battery setup with a possible 113mpg fuel consumption, no date set
    Most of toyota's lineup will have engines that will run on flex fuel similar to the former Big 3
    No word on Tacoma changes as of yet
    2008 Highlander similar to Rav body style being released in a week as of this posting. We have 4 in transit right now.
    07.25.07 2 Highlanders arrived and they look like oversized rav 4's on steroids
    Siena van will have stow away seating with a twist,(similar to crysler config) a different seat pops up with the captains chair style stowed. A wrap around couch set up in rear similar to stretch limos will be an option.
