Experiencing The Orange County Auto Show with Toyota

The Orange County International Auto Show is currently at The Anaheim Convention Center through Sunday. On behalf of Toyota, my little car aficionado, and I were invited to check out the latest cars, SUVs, trucks and exotics either currently available, or coming soon. As a pre-cursor to the OC Auto Show, we had the opportunity to experience the new 2019 Toyota 4 Runner for the week.

2019 Toyota 4Runner

I have always been a big fan of Toyota. When I was in my 20’s, I had a Toyota Corolla. At the time, my dream car was a Toyota 4Runner. It is a fun SUV, not too big, not too small. It is great for a family of 4-6 as it seats 6-7 individuals. The limited edition we toured around town for a week was equipped with:

  • Smart Key System -with push button start
  • Leather interior
  • Trimmed heated and ventilated seats
  • 8-way power adjustable seats
  • High resolution touch screen display
  • Dual zone automatic climate control
  • Automatic running boards
  • Third row seating that tucks flat
  • Real Wheel Drive or Active Traction Control
  • 20-in. split 6 spoke alloy wheels
  • Front & rear parking assist sonar
  • Color – key front and rear bumpers

My kids are big fans of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner. They enjoyed the spacious second row bench seat, and especially the automatic running boards as well as the back window that slides into the hatchback door.

Toyota has also updated the Rav4. The new 2019 Rav4, available in December is a great little crossover car. Check out some of the new features and information we heard from Toyota representatives.

My son loved the 86 TRD. He was ready to take one home for himself, while I was checking out the Sienna and the Sequoia.

This year, Toyota teamed up with NEGU, a non-profit agency that a little girl named Jessie started. She create’s “Joy Jars” where they collect donated toys, package them into a jar that is presented to families with children battling pediatric cancer. NEGU stands for Never Ever Give Up, a mission Jessie shared with these children. We were honored to contribute Hot Wheels cars to such an amazing cause, and you can too! Toyota is still collecting Hot Wheels cars for NEGU. Visit their booth during the OC Auto Show to donate.
