The Corolla Turns 50!!!
Doritos, Vans, Twister, Wite-Out, Batman, and the Toyota Corolla---what do all these things have in common? They turn 50 this year!!! Thats right the Toyota Corolla has been on the road for 50 years and Toyota is definitely celebrating this success---what's not to celebrate? With 11 generations and over 43 million sold (and counting) the Corolla is one of the best selling nameplates of ALL TIME . The Corolla is one of the oldest Toyota models still on the market, only after the Land Cruiser, and Toyota shows no signs of slowing the momentum of the popularity of the Corolla with the upgrades that have come in 2017.
The Corolla has a great reputation-known for its durable reliability, great affordable pricing, and fantastic resale value, but for its 50th birthday Toyota is stepping up with more standard safety features and technology. Back up cameras are now standard in all Corolla models and so is Toyota Safety Sense Technology. That’s right ALL 2017 Toyota Corollas will have the Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams.
When the Corolla was released in the fall of 1966 gas was .25 cents a gallon. Toyota can’t bring fuel prices down but they sure know how to create even greater fuel efficiency. The 2017 Toyota Corolla is expected to the best yet with 40 miles-per-gallon! A lot of other things have changed since 1966 check out the evolution of the Corolla here
