Update:

Toyota has dropped an official teaser.


Update:

Toyota has confirmed the Crown will be revealed on July 15, 2022.


Original Post:

Japanese scoop site, Creative Trend, states the Crown will be revealed on July 15, 2022. If this is the case, could we also hear about GR Corolla pricing?

There is a lot of speculation about how the car will be. Kirk Kreifels summarizes speculation very well here:


A lot of speculation is based on Best Car Magazine, which is a scoop publication that has good credibility. The latest article from Best Car can be found here:

I’m pretty sure they saw the Crown and the new Prius at the confidential HQ.

Best Car's GR Corolla render was very close to the production car. So, I expect it'll be close here as well.

I can also see a lot of new RX drivetrain carryover given it is the same platform and wheelbase.

My wife’s been waiting for the Crown as a daily and hopes it’s nice enough. I’m just hoping it’s good enough to wear the Crown badge

I was watching the SavageGeese Q&A livestream yesterday and they said Toyota showed them some upcoming cars at the HQ after the RX reveal. Mark said that his immediate reaction to one of the cars was "this thing looks like a f*cking dodge dart"

I'm hoping that was the Prius and not the Crown LOL

Rav4 : Venza : NX :: Highlander : Crown : RX

That's my prediction for the US market anyway. Give it the RX500h drivetrain (or even dial back the 80kW rear motor to a 30-40kW rear motor to reduce cost and improve efficiency).

Turns out Creative Trend's information was right on the money. Toyota confirms reveal is next week.

I keep looking at the leaked patents or whatever and I can see it as a daily.

Still bummed though
