Ken Mills Toyota is delighted to announce that they have been awarded Toyota Finance & Insurance Dealer of the Year, Toyota Access Dealer of the Year and have claimed the top two spots for Business Manager of the Year.
Toyota Motor Corporation has announced that Australians have bought more LandCruisers than any other country as the iconic vehicle brand passes 10 million global sales.
Local sales exceed 1.065 million vehicles, an impressive 10.6 per cent of the global tally that includes today's LandCruiser Prado, 70 Series and 200 Series and their predecessors.
LandCruiser is Toyota's longest-selling nameplate. It was originally launched in 1951 as the Toyota BJ and renamed LandCruiser in 1954 - 12 years ahead of the launch of another long-time customer favourite, Corolla.
LandCruiser is sold in approximately 170 countries and regions worldwide. In Australia, LandCruiser is used for mobility in zinc and copper mines some 1,600 metres underground; it is also used to herd cattle on vast cattle ranches of 8,000 sq. km; and it is a popular choice for city-based families.
In Africa, LandCruiser is used to provide humanitarian assistance: in Burundi, to carry malaria-infected children to hospital; and in refugee camps in Uganda, to transport patients to clinics.
In Costa Rica in Central America, there are regions where the LandCruiser is used to harvest carrots at altitudes of 3,500 meters, on slopes so steep that even humans have difficulty standing-the reason being that "only the LandCruiser is capable of reaching these fields."
Indeed, there are many places around the world where it would be impossible to live from day to day without the LandCruiser.
Toyota will significantly increase the safety technology offered on its HiLux with the addition of Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance features as part of a range-wide upgrade arriving over the coming months.
All models gain pre-collision safety system with day and night pedestrian detection and day cyclist detection, high-speed active cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assistance and road sign assist.
The substantial upgrade in features is expected to deliver a five-star 2019 ANCAP safety rating for HiLux.
The All-New Hiace has arrived at Ken Mills Toyota!
Awarded 5-stars in crash test assessment by ANCAP, the All-New Hiace provides the same levels of safety as seen in passenger and SUV vehicles. A new benchmark when it comes to commercial vehicles which, for many, are also their workplace.
Scores included 94% for ‘Adult Occupant Protection’ including frontal offset, full-width, oblique pole and side-impact destructive tests, 88% for ‘Child Occupant Protection’, 84% for ‘Vulnerable Road User Protection’ and 77% for ‘Safety Assist’.
One of three recipients of the Ken Mills Toyota 2018 'Employee of the Year Award', Brad Fisher is a well recognised face at our Nambour Dealership.
Due in April this year, Toyota's three new "halo" HiLux variants have a strong Aussie flavour due to an extensive development program carried out by the company's Melbourne-based designers and engineers.
Aimed at off-road enthusiasts, the comprehensive upgrades that result in the new HiLux Rugged and Rugged X variants were designed, engineered and validated in Australia.
Whilst Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive has always been ground-breaking technology, there's nothing complicated about owning a Toyota Hybrid. You can just get in, hit the start button and leave the car to do the rest.
Behind the scenes, there is the high torque of a battery-powered electric motor combined with the efficient power of a petrol-driven combustion engine which kicks in for hard acceleration or high speeds.
This said, it is one of the more misunderstood cars in our range so we thought we would bust some of the common misconceptions!
