Toyota Crown Will Reportedly Be a New Hybrid SUV for the U.S

It’ll allegedly go on sale in the summer of 2023.

With the debut of the Crown SUV next year, Toyota’s SUV selection is expected to expand. According to a fresh Reuters story, the carmaker would add a high-riding model under the Crown brand to complement the sedan. It will be available not only in Japan, but also in China and North America, according to Toyota.

The newspaper spoke to three sources about the company’s ambitions, but details are limited at the moment. It’ll reportedly be available in three different configurations: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and totally electric. According to the article, sales will start in the summer of 2023, although not every market will get every configuration. The plug-in hybrid will remain on the market in the United States.

According to the article, the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models would be released initially, followed by the full-electric model in 2024. However, according to two Reuters sources, the corporation is still working on export plans for that model. There is no more information about the platform, powertrains, or design in the study.

The new SUV could be positioned above the Sequoia in the brand’s portfolio, possibly as a replacement for the Land Cruiser, which has been withdrawn in the United States. If it’s a top-of-the-line model, it should include all of the current features. In several markets, Toyota still sells the Land Cruiser. Toyota declined to comment on its purported plans with Reuters.

This isn’t the first time Toyota has added a crossover to a sedan model. Last year, Toyota debuted the Corolla Cross 2022. Crossovers and SUVs are becoming increasingly popular among consumers, and Toyota is following suit. The famous Crown sedan, on the other hand, isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The Crown is getting a complete makeover that will air this summer. In 2018, Toyota debuted the 15th-generation, and in 2021, the four-door received an update that includes new technology.

Over the last few years, Toyota has added more crossovers and SUVs to its inventory. People are spending more money on new automobiles than ever before, so adding a top-of-the-line model makes sense, and Toyota will do so by spreading the Crown brand beyond the company’s home nation.
