July 11th, 2022 by

2023 is a big year for Toyota. We have the all-new Toyota GR Corolla headed our way, as well as a completely redesigned new Toyota Sequoia, the new Toyota bz4X, multiple new hybrid options, exciting new special editions, and more. However, one more incredible car will be added to the lineup (again) – the iconic Toyota Crown. Toyota of Orlando has the details!

What you should know about the new and improved Toyota Crown

You heard right – the Toyota Crown is headed back to the U.S. this fall. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming release:

  • The Toyota Crown has been an iconic choice for drivers in Japan since way back in 1955 when it was first introduced to the market. It’s always been a mainstream sedan option there, and currently acts as an “executive” car with its luxurious features and comfortable interior.
  • It’s actually been in the U.S. before; back in 1958, the Toyota Crown was up for grabs stateside. The first through fourth generations were available in the U.S. until 1973 and shares the same platform as the plush Lexus GS.
  • We don’t know that the Toyota Crown will still be a sedan when it arrives in the U.S. for 2023; not much has been unveiled about it yet, and people are speculating it’s going to be a sportier, coupe-like design OR have a crossover-ish like style.
  • This new style will give drivers looking for something smaller than an SUV but larger than a typical sedan a solid option to drive home.
  • It’s likely that it’s being brought to the U.S. to replace the Orlando Toyota Avalon, which is being retired after 2022.
  • It’s also likely that the new Toyota Crown will be built on the new TNGA-K platform, offer all-wheel drive, and be available in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or electric drivetrains as Toyota continues to push its green initiative. So far, the 2.4L 4-cylinder hybrid with 200-210 horsepower rumor is holding the most water.
  • However, some are speculating that a 2.4L turbocharged inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission and electric motor could be in the works, which could mean 350+ horsepower.
  • It’s believed that this new Toyota will be roomier than the Toyota Avalon and be closer to Lexus-like levels of luxury and technology to give drivers a one-of-a-kind experience.
  • The interior technology is rumored to be similar to that of the upcoming 2023 Toyota bz4X with an advanced infotainment system and top-of-the-line features.

It should be arriving in dealerships sometime this fall – many are speculating October 2022 – and will be fully revealed on July 15 with more details. We’ll keep you posted on exactly what it’ll have to offer when it arrives!
