One of the main criticisms levelled at the Toyota Camry over the years is that it’s “plain vanilla,” meaning it’s versatile and appeals to pretty much all tastes, but it’s not very exciting. And consumers are lapping it up, putting it at the top of the sales lists every year for the past 16.

Subaru Plugging-In Crosstrek Using Toyota Hybrid Tech

  Subaru Plugging-In Crosstrek Using Toyota Hybrid Tech Subaru has just announced that it will be making a plug-in version of the Crosstrek compact crossover. It's the automaker's first plug-in, but not its first hybrid. Subaru's first hybrid in North America was the XV Crosstrek hybrid that arrived for the 2014 model year in Canada. That car used Subaru's own hybrid system that used a small 13-hp electric motor and a 0.6 kWh battery pack. The fuel economy increase was slim, and the model was dropped after 2016. The new Crosstrek Hybrid goes straight to the king of hybrids. Under the hood is the Toyota Hybrid System. That's thanks to a partnership between the two automakers that has Toyota owning a substantial piece of Subaru. So the new Crosstrek Hybrid will share plug-in hardware with the Toyota Prius Prime. Subaru hasn't given out the specs for the power and range of this new hybrid, but the Prius Prime uses an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and uses two electric motors that make 91 hp and give that car a 40 km electric range. This Subaru won't have a Prius engine, though. Subaru said that the Crosstrek Hybrid will stay true to its roots and use a Subaru flat-four engine. Subaru's latest platform, which underpins the Impreza and Crosstrek, was designed to accommodate hybrid and electric powertrains as well as gas-only. Subaru hasn't released photos but did say that the Hybrid would get some styling changes to reflect the new powertrain.

In recent years, Toyota has attempted to make the design more exciting and improved its performance and handling, but critics are still not appeased and often voice that opinion.

So in an attempt to dispel misconceptions, the company entered one of the most epic rallies in history — the legendary Cannonball Run, or One Lap of America (as it has come to be known). The contingent was made up of three teams, made up of engineers from Toyota’s US manufacturing plants (Indiana, West Virginia and Georgetown, Kentucky), running a Camry XSE, Camry SE and Camry Hybrid.

“We were doing track testing with the Camry Hybrid,” said Toyota Indiana engineer James Nichols. “It was met with humor by other drivers in the paddock, but, when we started passing cars on the track, the atmosphere changed.”

Alfa Romeo To Cash In On High-Performance Hybrid Hype

  Alfa Romeo To Cash In On High-Performance Hybrid Hype Alfa Romeo reportedly has an eye on expanding its SUV lineup and adding hybrid propulsion as a powertrain option as it prepares to lay the next plank of its future in North America. According to the UK's Autocar magazine, Fiat Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne will next month announce the brand's plan to roll out a mid-size crossover to position above the Stelvio, and a coupe version of the Giulia sport sedan, both of which will supposedly be offered with hybrid powertrains.These hybrids will not be out for fuel economy supremacy.

The One Lap of America kicks off Saturday at the Tire Rack headquarters in South Bend, Indiana, and it will test the endurance of drivers and machines as it forces its participants to push “We were doing track testing just a few days ago with the Camry Hybrid ,” said Toyota Indiana engineer James Nichols.

The 2018 Tire Rack One Lap of America was run last week, covering 5,914 between racetracks, where the cars put down fast laps. Cars must remain street legal, since pretty much the entire distance is run on public roads, and they can only use one set of tires (hence the sponsorship from Tire Rack).

This year’s event started and ended in South Bend, Indiana, and visited Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis, Hallett Motor Racing (Tulsa, Oklahoma), High Plains Raceway in Denver, Motorsports Ranch (Ft. Worth, Texas), NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, and the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

“We truly believe that lessons we learn on the track in vehicle performance, safety, problem-solving and teamwork make us better engineers,” said Toyota senior engineering manager Brandon Barach.

This is the fourth entry in the rally for the team representing Georgetown, with its best finish being second in the Sports GT Small Bore class in 2016 with a Toyota 86.

2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan brings straight-six power to the traditional sedan .
