Geneva Motor Show Will See Two New Toyota Concepts

Convertible FR-S to be on display

Reports indicate the Toyota is set to show off a pair of new concept vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. One of the concepts is very likely to go into production and is a convertible version of the FT-86 sold in the United States as the Subaru BR-Z or the Scion FR-S.

The coupe version of the vehicle drawn a lot of comparisons to the Mazda Miata since it debuted. Ahose comparisons are certain to grow now that the convertible version is being shown off. Thker B6e second concept vehicle to be shown in Geneva is called the Toyota i-road.

This vehicle is supposed to be a compact emissions free personal mobility concept. The idea is to provide quick and efficient urban transportation for two people. The car reminds me of a cross between a motorcycle and a micro car.

2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Starts at $42,385

Aug 28 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Price Higher than TRD Package, Less than F-150 RaptorFor most of its existence, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor had no serious competition.

Toyota introduced the TRD Pro package for the 2015 Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner, and today, we have pricing for ...
