Toyota Plans to Introduce a New Lineup of Engines

Toyota is expected to release a new lineup of engines early this year as part of a five year plan to produce more fuel efficient vehicles. The first new 2.0 liter engine will be cleaner, yet still powerful and will be installed in the Auris hatchback. The Auris is sold in nations outside of the United States and will debut in an auto show sometime in early 2018. Within the next five years, the vast majority of Toyota vehicles will feature new engines and transmissions.

Along with new powertrains, Toyota will also introduce improved all-wheel drive systems and a redesigned continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a toothed “launch gear”. Despite over half of its models being electric by 2030, Toyota still plans on having nearly 90 percent of its total vehicles sold to have fuel burning engines. The company still sees fuel burning engines as a great investment for the foreseeable future. This is partly due to the fact that fuel burning engines will continue to become cleaner and more efficient minimizing the concern for damage to the environment. In the past, Toyota has been criticized for being a skeptic of electric vehicle technology, but the company has emphasized it still has serious plans to invest in full electric vehicles.
