Looking for a new pickup that's as reliable and safe as it is fierce? Both the 2014 Toyota Tacoma and 2014 Nissan Frontier could be good matches for your needs. However, at Orr Toyota, we think only the Toyota Tacoma truly shines as a marvel in its class. Here are 11 ways the new Tacoma beats the new Frontier:
1. Car and Driver tests determined the new Toyota Tacoma is faster than the new Nissan Frontier.
2. Car and Driver and Consumer Reports tests also determined that the Tacoma stops shorter from high speeds than its Nissan competitor, which means its brakes are generally more responsive. The Tacoma is likely able to stop shorter than the Frontier because its brake rotors are larger.
3. Front and rear gas-charged shocks as well as front and rear stabilizer bars enhance handling capabilities n the 2014 Tacoma. Without these specs, the Frontier's handling capabilities are compromised.
4. The Tacoma's short bed, which is 34.8 cubic feet, and its long bed, which is 42.6 cubic feet, are much longer than the Frontier's. The Frontier's short bed is only 27.1 cubic feet, and its long bed is only 33.5 cubic feet.
5. The Tacoma's available trim levels all offer standard payload capacities that are higher than the Frontier's. The Tacoma Crew Cab 4x4, the most versatile of the Tacoma trims, has a payload capacity of 1,305 lbs. The Frontier's comparable trim level only offers a payload capacity of 1,251 lbs.
6. Toyota pays for scheduled maintenance for the Tacoma for 2 years or 25,000 miles. Nissan doesn't offer free scheduled maintenance for its vehicles.
7. The new Tacoma's 710-amp battery can handle larger electrical loads than the new Frontier's 550-amp battery.
8. Daytime running lights keep Tacoma occupants safer. The Frontier doesn't offer daytime running lights.
9. The Tacoma has a greater maximum ground clearance than the Frontier: 9.1 inches vs. 8.9 inches. This makes it more ideal for off-roading.
10. Bluetooth wireless connectivity is standard with the Tacoma. Frontier owners have to pay extra for this feature.
11. The 2014 Tacoma outperformed the 2014 Frontier in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration front crash tests and rollover measures.
Think you might prefer the 2014 Toyota Tacoma to the 2014 Nissan Frontier? Schedule a test drive at Orr Toyota!

When the Prius hit the market in 1997, Toyota positioned itself as the most forward-thinking automaker in terms of eco-friendly car technology. Over the years, other automakers have tried their hand at releasing hybrid and electric vehicles, but Toyota has remained at the top, producing some of the most popular environmentally-friendly cars on the road. And Orr Toyota in Dallas is proud to announce that Toyota is continuing to stay ahead of the curve by developing a revolutionary fuel cell vehicle.
Toyota revealed its fuel cell concept over the summer and has now announced that they plan to release the vehicle in Japan next March and in North America next summer! This vehicle will be revolutionary because it will be the first of its kind offered on a wide scale to the consumer market.
Fuel cell vehicles run on a combination of hydrogen and oxygen, and they produce absolutely no carbon emissions and don't require any electricity to run. The only byproduct of fuel cell cars is water. This makes them, without a doubt, the best cars for the environment.
Although there aren't too many hydrogen fueling stations just yet, and Toyota's fuel cell car is expected to be fairly high on the price scale, sources speculate that Toyota will work on bringing the price of the latest eco-friendly addition to its lineup down as their technology gets more sophisticated. It's also expected that, as hydrogen fuel cell vehicles catch on, more fueling stations will start popping up.
Are you excited about Toyota's eco-friendly innovations? If you're looking for a car that does the environment a favor and saves you on fuel costs, check out some of your options at Orr Toyota!
At Orr Toyota, we think the 2014 Chevy Tahoe doesn't have anything on the 2014 Land Cruiser. If you're comparing the two DFW SUVs, we think you should consider these seven reasons the Land Cruiser trumps the Tahoe:
1. Safety features are nothing short of amazing in the new Land Cruiser. Active headrests to prevent whiplash injury, a standard pre-collision warning system that warns drivers of impending danger, and a multi-terrain monitor that provides 360-views of the vehicle's surroundings are just some of what distinguishes the Land Cruiser. The 2014 Tahoe doesn't offer these features.
2. All-wheel drive is standard in Land Cruiser models. This important off-roading feature costs extra for Tahoe owners.
3. The Toyota Land Cruiser's V8 engine produces 61 more horsepower and 66 lbs.-ft. more torque than the Tahoe's V8 engine.
4. Motor Trend determined that the new Land Cruiser is significantly faster than the new Chevrolet Tahoe. Specifically, it has the ability to go from 0 mph to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, while the Tahoe only has the ability to go from 0 mph to 60 mph in 8.3 seconds.
5. Car and Driver, Motor Trend, and Consumer Reports all determined that the Land Cruiser stops shorter from high speeds than the Tahoe. This is due, in part, to the Land Cruiser's larger front brake rotors.
6. The Land Cruiser has larger tires and larger wheels than the Tahoe, which dramatically improves its handling.
7. The Land Cruiser's towing capacity of 8,200 lbs. far exceeds the Tahoe's towing capacity of 5,200 lbs. This means you won't have to worry as much about the weight of what you're towing in the Toyota SUV.
These are just a few of the major reasons the 2014 Land Cruiser outshines the 2014 Tahoe. If we've piqued your interest about the Land Cruiser, we invite you to schedule a test drive at Orr Toyota!

Orr Toyota is here with the latest Toyota news, and we're happy to report that Toyota has released some details about the 2015 Toyota Sienna! Toyota released information about the new Toyota minivan today and posted a few YouTube videos to promote the vehicle.
The new Sienna videos, produced by top parents in the social media realm, are pretty fun to watch. One features a Sienna in space, and another features a man speaking with and dancing for his Sienna. The new Sienna is trending now among parents across the web. To see what parents are saying, just search for "#SwaggerWagon."
In terms of updates and new features, Toyota has announced that the new Sienna will come with an updated, more sophisticated looking interior, an optional 4.2-inch, color multi-information display to compliment the vehicle's 7-inch Entune audio display, and optional LED daytime running lights. The minivan will also be equipped with a speaker/microphone system that will amplify the driver's voice when activated. This feature gives parents the ability to easily communicate with kids in the back of the minivan. Plus, the 2015 Sienna will also offer a Blu-ray-compatible rear entertainment system.
Reps at Toyota say the new Sienna will hit showroom floors later this year. If you want to be the first to know when the 2015 Sienna arrives to Dallas, get in touch with us at Orr Toyota. And if you're looking for some new wheels now, we invite you to browse our new inventory online!
Earlier this year, Toyota decided to upgrade their 2014 Camry and add in a few key features. Specifically, Toyota added in a standard backup camera as well as an updated Entune entertainment system to select trim models. Toyota dubbed these new vehicles with these additional features 2014.5 Camrys. Since its release, the 2014.5 Camry has been a force to reckon with in the mid-size car segment. If you're wondering how it compares with rivals like the 2014 Honda Accord, here's what Orr Toyota in Dallas thinks you should know about its advantages as well as the Accord's advantages:
2014.5 Camry: Major Advantages
The new Camry outperformed its Honda competitor in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration front and side impact crash tests.
The Camry's SE and XLE trim levels offer an optional cross-path warning system, which helps drivers stay aware of cars approaching from the side.
The new Toyota's 582-amp battery is more powerful and reliable than the new Accord's 550-amp battery.
With standard automatic transmission, driving the Camry is easy. Unfortunately, automatic costs Accord owners extra.
With larger front brake rotors than the Accord, the Camry easily outperforms its rival in Car and Driver and Consumer Reports brake tests.
The new Camry's turning circle is 1.4 feet tighter than the Accord's.
With standard folding rear sits that are split, loading cargo in the Toyota Camry is easier than doing so in the Honda Accord, which does not come with split rear seats.
According to Intellichoice, the 2014.5 Camry costs between $761 and $8569 less than the Honda Accord to operate in terms of repair costs and maintenance.
2014 Accord: Major Advantages
Both the 2014 Accord's 4-cylinder engine, which produces 185 hp, as well as its V6 engine, which produces 278 hp, are slightly more powerful than the Camry's comparable engine options, which produce 178 hp and 268 hp.
The new Accord has a larger trunk than the new Camry (15.8 cubic feet vs. 15.4 cubic feet).
Active noise cancellation sometimes makes the interior of the Accord quieter than the Camry, which doesn't come with active noise cancellation.
With an engine control system that can shut down half of its cylinders, the Accord with the V6 engine option can save some fuel at cruising speeds.
If we were to pick a winner of these two top dog mid-size cars, we'd definitely pick the 2014.5 Camry. If you're interested, we hope you'll check out our available Camry models online and schedule a test drive with us at Orr Toyota!
