Coronation of the 2023 Toyota Crown
Toyota is giving its competitors a run for their money, coming out with vehicles left and right that are ready to challenge preexisting performance standards. The 2023 Toyota Sequoia, 2023 Toyota bZ4X, and the 2023 GR Corolla are just a few of the new faces. We at Landers Toyota of Northwest Arkansas want to bring your attention to the 2023 Toyota Crown. Let’s talk about what we know so far about the sedan’s newest generation.
The all-new 2023 Toyota Crown is a full-sized sedan with three trim levels: XLE, Limited, and Platinum. Toyota continued the theme of the original Crown by creating a fierce vehicle that is innovative and advanced. The Crown relies on either a newly available first-ever Hybrid Max high-performance powertrain or a fourth-generation Toyota Hybrid System that is tried and true. The Hybrid Max system is partnered with a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder turbo engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, which turns out 340 horsepower and an estimated 28 mpg. The tried-and-true Toyota Hybrid System, a balanced unit of two electric motors, is paired with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and produces 236 hp. The estimated mpg for the second system option is 38 combined. The standard drivetrain is all-wheel drive.
There was some speculation before its official launch about whether Toyota was bringing the Crown back as an SUV. Others compared it to the Toyota Venza. Learn more about the 2022 Toyota Venza for easier comparison. The overall outlook is that the 2023 Crown has been well-received so far. Liberties were taken when designing it, because the Crown is officially a sedan but it does blur some lines between the sedan and SUV categories due to its ample cabin space and capabilities.
The interior is crafted to include everything the driver needs. This includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a new Digital Key, which allows the driver to unlock and start their vehicle using the Toyota app on their phone. The key can also be shared with those you trust.
The 2023 Crown will come standard with the newly revamped Toyota Safety Sense 3.0. The 3.0 package includes the same systems as the previous Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 and 2.5, but with enhancements to the camera and sensor range. Check out the full Toyota Safety Sense update. The 2023 Crown will also come standard with Rear Seat Reminder, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Hill Start Assist Control.
Toyota Crown History
Twenty-twenty-three is not the Toyota Crown’s first time appearing on the social scene. The Crown made its first appearance in 1955, but it took three years for the Crown to go to market. It was the first Japanese car sold in the U.S. in 1958. The sedan was modern for the time and continued to be creative and forward-thinking until Toyota stopped selling it in the U.S. in 1972. Between its original debut and now, the Crown has had 15 generations, each time refining its capability and unique design.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the 2023 Toyota Crown. When production starts soon, we at Landers Toyota NWA will provide you with more updates.
