A New Hybrid Standard: 2022 Tundra i-FORCE MAX

2022 Toyota Tundra i-FORCE MAX | Nash, TX

Developed from the ground up for the next-generation Toyota Tundra pickup truck, i-FORCE MAX is a high-capability hybrid powertrain that can handle tough jobs without compromising efficiency. It’s a powertrain that puts combustion engine and electric motor perfectly in sync, not just boosting power but also enabling you to have a more direct feel for what your truck is doing.

How does it work? The Tundra’s i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain combines a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with a single electric motor and a heavy-duty 10-speed automatic transmission. To maximize performance, Toyota found a way to integrate the motor directly between the engine and the transmission.

This enhances power and responsiveness — and also makes it possible for you to drive the Tundra on purely electric power at low speeds. Total power output is 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. That gives the Tundra up to 12,000 pounds of towing capacity and 1,940 pounds of hauling capacity in the bed.

Even better, Toyota developed a new power control unit that fills in the gaps in the torque curve, making it high and flat as possible. In other words, the Tundra’s powertrain is incredibly snappy, and puts power down quickly, including at low speeds and with heavy loads.

2023 Toyota Crown | Nash, TX

The famous Toyota Crown is finally on its way back to the U.S. After nearly fifty years of absence, Toyota has decided to bring back its most luxurious sedan to North America, complete with a brand new hybrid powertrain and a unique body style.

HYBRID MAX powertrain

The 2023 Toyota Crown will be offered with two powertrains. One is the latest Toyota Hybrid System, which uses two electric motors, while the other is a brand new HYBRID MAX system that combines a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a rear electric motor. The latter generates an impressive 340 horsepower and is expected to return 38 mpg combined. Regardless of trim level, every Crown will come with standard all-wheel drive.

First-class cabin

As the replacement for the Toyota Avalon, the Crown will feature one of the most luxurious cabins in a Toyota you can buy. Notable features include heated and ventilated leather-trimmed seats, an 11-speaker JBL® premium sound system, and a 12.3-inch touch-screen infotainment system with wireless smartphone connectivity, cloud-based navigation, Wi-Fi, and over-the-air updates. The Crown even comes with a smart Toyota AI assistant that can attend to your needs.

How to Transport a Kayak on Your Toyota

Kayak on Roof Rack | Robbins, TX

A great way to escape the heat in Texas is to spend a day on the water. Many people invest in kayaks as an affordable alternative to a boat. But how are you supposed to transport a kayak? Fortunately, if you own a Toyota, it’s relatively easy to transport one or two kayaks to your favorite spots like Wright Patman Lake or the Cathedral Paddling Trail in Karnack.

Roof rack

If you have an SUV like the Toyota 4Runner or Highlander, you can attach your kayaks to the roof rack. If they didn’t come already installed, or you only have side rails, you can get a full roof rack installed at Robbins Toyota.

Kayak attachments

To help keep your kayaks secure, you may consider purchasing a kayak attachment. This will keep your kayaks in place while you drive. You can choose from multiple varieties including J-cradles, saddles, and stackers.

Loading the kayak

Once you have the right tight of roof equipment, you should be able to easily load and attach your kayak to the roof of your Toyota. While it is possible to do this alone, it will be easier and safer with two people. Each person can hold one end of the kayak while you both maneuver it into position. Make sure all straps and buckles are secured properly before you start driving.

If you’ve got the kayaks but not the Toyota, visit Robbins Toyota in Nash, Texas, to get just the car and accessories you need to transport your gear!

Toyota Tundra SX Package Brings Head-Turning Style

Toyota Reveals Electrifying New 2023 bZ4X EV


2023 bZ4X EV | Robbins Toyota | Nash, TX

The first Toyota EV bound for the United States has finally been unveiled. Meet the 2023 Toyota bZ4X, the first in a new lineup of “Beyond Zero”-branded vehicles that will quickly grow over the next three years. This all-electric Toyota SUV will have 250 miles of driving range,[1] integrated solar panels, and is expected to go on sale in Nash, Texas, and across America in mid-2022.

Performance and range

The standard bZ4X will feature a 201-horsepower powertrain comprised of a single electric motor. However, there will also be an all-wheel-drive version with two motors and 215 horsepower.

Toyota says it will do 0-60 mph in about 7.7 seconds and, thanks to a 64-kWh battery pack, will go 250 miles on a single charge. It will also be sold with optional solar panels that can add another 1,000 miles of estimated range each year for the average driver.

First Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0

When it launches, the bZ4X will be the first model to feature Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0 (currently, the most advanced package is TSS 2.5+). Its enhanced sensor capabilities will allow it to detect cyclists in low-light conditions as well as guardrails, in addition to everything it can already do now (like detect pedestrians and brake at intersections).

Production kicks off in mid-2022, so expect to find the all-new Toyota bZ4X at Robbins Toyota in Nash, Texas, later this year! In the meantime, contact us if you want to know more about the bZ4X and how Toyota is making it easy to go Beyond Zero.
