Mars + Toyota RAV4 Hybrid = a Funny Ride

Did you happen to see the popular movie, The Martian? In it, actor Matt Damon plays an astronaut who is accidently left behind on Mars after an emergency forces the rest of the crew to leave. Afterward, Damon’s character struggles to survive the inhospitable planet for years on his own while a rescue crew is sent back to him.

We thought of this movie recently when we saw this funny Toyota commercial featuring James and a group of “space travelers.”

Toyota Hits Midsize SUV Sweet Spot with Striking 2016 4Runner

Unlike many of its contemporaries in the ever-expanding crossover class, the Toyota 4Runner has managed to always stay true to its old-school SUV roots. Bold, boxy and brawny, the 4Runner is, in many ways, the last bastion of a dying breed.

That said, we at Thompson Toyota are thrilled that it plays for our team. And, after learning a bit more about it, we think you'll understand our position perfectly. Take a moment to do just that right now:

Toyota Tacoma is Fun in a Mid-Size Truck

We've been giving the Toyota Tundra plenty of attention lately, but how about its smaller cousin, the Toyota Tacoma?

While the Tacoma is capable for tough jobs like hauling cords of wood, for drivers who don't require the muscle (and subsequent drop in fuel economy) of a full-size, the Tacoma makes its name as a weekend getaway vehicle.

Would you live outdoors if you could? The Tacoma is perfect for towing your boat out to the lake, bringing along dirt bikes, or hauling your hunting and fishing gear. Most importantly for some, it's a genius at off-roading…

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a TRD dual exhaust, Bilstein shocks, distinctive exterior styling cues, a front skid plate, bucket seats with red stitching and so very much more. It's a beautiful beast, indeed.

Toyota Visits Pennsylvania Town to Herald in New Fuel

Titusville, PA is known as the birthplace of the oil industry, it was where the first oil wells were dug in the mid-1800s.

It's also where Toyota is going to demonstrate fueling the Toyota Mirai, which could revolutionize emission-free vehicles.

Technically, hydrogen is not a new fuel at all. It's been used since the 1950s by NASA to get rockets into space. The hydrogen fuel cell was invented in the early 19th century. However, it is only recently that anyone has put a hydrogen fuel cell into a modern car for commercial sale.

The cool thing about hydrogen…
