Based on Motortrend's review of the Tacoma, the 3.5L has the same cooling system as a Turbo engine would. Perhaps, this will be the basis for future Turbo six cylinders?

Sure but wouldn't it be better if they just update the 4L? It already does pretty well in the 4Runner. It can easily outpower everything in its class and with pretty good fuel economy too. From...

MB interiors look nice in pictures but in reality they are cheap and chintzy. As least all the floor models I sat in during the NY Auto show. And this looks like a rebadged BMW X6

Power numbers are a little underwhelming. Gives up 30hp with a .1L smaller displacement engine than the GM twins. Torque and HP peaks are higher up in the RPM range than the old 4L as well. I...

Looks badass. Love it. Now anyone that spent $100k on this thing wont get mistaken for a slightly less expensive LC. All the European models look so boring in comparison.

There are plenty of levers Lexus can pull on a fixed price model. Like offering $3k-$5k factory rebates. Of course consumers with more money than sense will just go and pay without looking for...

Fine fine different people desire different power delivery. I find the 2GR pretty torque even down low in the rpm range. But how do you explain to a shopper to take the camry that may have less...

Yes you may not need top end power, but for the camry's purpose, there's no need for all that torque anyways. Its not pulling or hauling and being front wheel drive, it will have handling issues. ...

I do have a feeling these are stopgap products and stopgap engines. Lexus most likely didn't want to introduce brand new performance engines in the lower end of the segment. New high performance...

I hope they will tune the 2.0T to around 270hp or so in new Camrys and possibly the ESesesese. How do you explain to a customer the new camry only pumps out 235hp or so compared to a smooth V6 with...

Yes I know that. They could have simply updated the 4.0 with DI and Atkinson. I guess not for FE reasons or it would leapfrog the 4.6 V8.

How many pages were devoted to talking something so subjective to as to the placement of the screen? Nevermind the performance potential or powertrain improvements, if any.

Curious as to why they couldn't just up the boost on the current 2.0t. It's barely breaking a sweat at its current tune.

Gosh I hope at a minimum they will use the 8spd auto and at least add DI or Atkinson cycle to the engine. Why a Tacoma gets DI and Atkinson cycle and not the LC or LX is beyond me.

If the 270hp figure is correct, its going to present a marketing and performance problem when compared to the GM twins. I guess they cant really let it outgun the 4.6L V8, for now.
