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.

As a front-engine, rear-drive two-door sports coupe, the Supra' s visual appeal lies in the classic shape evoked by its long bonnet, compact swept back cabin and low beltline.

It's a design that not only makes reference to Toyota sports car heritage - such as the double bubble roof that appeared on the 1967 2000GT - but has been created specifically with the aerodynamic requirements and balance needed for high performance driving on the road and racetrack.

Underpinning its sports performance is a chassis that measures 2470mm in the wheelbase with wide front and rear tracks of 1594mm and 1589mm respectively1.

These dimensions have been specified to deliver what Toyota refers to as the "golden ratio" between wheelbase and width to provide superb responsiveness, stability and agile handling.

Overall length of the GR Supra stretches to 4379mm, with the car measuring 1854mm wide and just 1292mm in height1.

To deliver such a low overall height, and subsequently the low centre-of-gravity necessary for true sports performance, Toyota dropped the running ground clearance1 below its usual standard minimum of 130mm to just 119mm.

Ken Mills Toyota, through its ‘Pay-it-Forward’ program, has today donated $10,670 to long-term charity partner RACQ LifeFlight Rescue to support the vital community service here on the Sunshine Coast.

The ‘Pay-it-Forward’ program was introduced as an alternative to giving guests merchandise when they purchase a new or used vehicle at Ken Mills Toyota. Instead, a donation is made by Ken Mills Toyota on behalf of the guest to a charity of their choice.

Ken Mills Toyota joins with Matthew Flinders Anglican College to get their hands dirty planting trees to celebrate Schools Tree Day on Friday 26 July.

The collaboration is part of Australia’s biggest community tree-planting and nature care event, National Tree Day, which takes place on Sunday 28 July. National Tree Day encourages communities to help preserve the environment for future generations.

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’.

Last month, Ken Mills Toyota won the 2018 Toyota Access Dealer of the Year Award; an award of which we are very proud. You might be thinking…what’s Toyota Access and what’s the big deal?

Toyota Access in a nutshell.

Available to both personal and business customers, Toyota Access puts you in control of your car loan.

It’s a car loan that comes with a Guaranteed Future Value of the vehicle* (and a guaranteed buyer!), lower repayments^, a fixed interest rate and flexible options about what you can do with the car when the loan term ends – trade it in, keep it or return it.

Toyota Australia has today announced the introduction of the Toyota Warranty Advantage - a standard five-year^ manufacturer warranty for all new Toyota vehicles sold from January 1, 2019.

 In a move designed to drive greater value, confidence and loyalty for Toyota owners, the Toyota Warranty Advantage includes unlimited kilometres for private buyers and 160,000km for vehicles used for commercial purposes.

 The new five-year protection and other benefits apply to all models across the range, from the nimble Yaris to the mighty LandCruiser 200 Series, including petrol, diesel and hybrid drivetrains.

As we head in to Christmas and the end of 2018, I wanted to say thank you for your support of Ken Mills Toyota; be it through the purchase of a new or used car or your continued loyalty to our service team. As a local, family-owned dealership, your business directly helps us to give back to our Sunshine Coast community organisations, sporting clubs and charities who support this incredible region.
