Toyota & The Muppets Are at It Again in New Highlander Commercials

The Muppets 2014 Toyota Highlander

The Fun Isn’t Over for the Muppets and the Toyota Highlander

Although the Super Bowl was two months ago, people are still loving Toyota’s Super Bowl commercial, featuring America’s favorite gang of Muppets, the all-new Toyota Highlander, and Terry Crews from FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Since that original commercial, Toyota has put out several follow-up videos in an effort to satisfy America’s craving for funny and heart-warming moments with the Muppets and their favorite car, the Toyota Highlander.

There are plenty of Muppet videos to choose from, but our all-time favorites have to be the Blooper Reels and a video simply titled “Boop!”  Between the laughter and the fun, it is clear that there is no room for boring in the 2014 Toyota Highlander. Let’s be serious, you can’t have boring when the Muppets are involved!

Here are our favorite new installments of the Muppets and the Toyota Highlander. Check out Toyota’s YouTube page to see all of the latest videos and commercials.

How Efficient Are Toyota Hybrids? We’re Not Just Talking about the Prius Anymore

 

2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid

Find Out How Efficient the 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Really Is

We all know that the Toyota Prius reigns supreme as the flagship Hybrid vehicle; you can’t get much better than 51 mpg city. But what about the other hybrid vehicles that Toyota sells? After all, the Prius isn’t the only hybrid in the Toyota lineup.

From the Camry to the Avalon to the Highlander, Toyota offers a nice assortment of hybrid options for varying car buying needs. If the Prius is too small or maybe you want a more luxurious interior, there is certainly another Toyota hybrid out there for you.

So just how efficient are the other Toyota Hybrids? Let’s do some comparisons and see what each hybrid model has to offer:

Hybrid Engine Hybrid MPG Gas MPG
2014 Avalon Hybrid 2.5-liter 4-cylinder 40/39 21/31
2014 Camry Hybrid 2.5-liter 4-cylinder 43/39 25/35
2014 Highlander Hybrid 3.5-liter V6 27/28 19/25

The best part about opting for a Toyota hybrid is that you get all of the features and specs of the cars you love, just with way better gas mileage. We still love our king of hybrids, the Prius, but it’s nice to know there are other options out there for the eco-conscious shopper in all of us.

Dick Dyer Toyota has the 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, Camry Hybrid, and Highlander Hybrid in stock. Check out our website for more information or visit our showroom.

A Muppets Joyride: Toyota’s 2014 Super Bowl Commercial

Toyota Super Bowl Ad 2014

From an all-purple dressed Kaley Cuoco to a Chihuahua in a beret to the all-new RAV4, last year’s Toyota Super Bowl commercial was a hit. Since probably half of the people watching the Super Bowl only care about the commercials, it is no surprise that people are eager to see what Toyota has up its sleeve this year.

Enter the unlikely duo of the Muppets and Terry Crews, Star of FOX’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and former NLF player. Throw in the new Toyota Highlander and the commercial is complete. Confused? Allow us to elaborate.

When Crews comes across a broken down bus while driving in his Highlander, he graciously offers his help to the unfortunate travelers. Things quickly get out of hand, however, when a mob of Muppets appear and take over Crews’ all-new Highlander. Thanks to its spacious and accommodating interior though, all the Muppets fit in just fine.

But there isn’t room for something: Boring. The Muppets show an uptight Crews that the Highlander is meant for fun and when you reach the end of the commercial, I think we can all agree Crews breaks out of his shell and embraces the “No Room for Boring” attitude with his new Muppet friends.

In addition to the commercial, the Muppets will be traveling to the Super Bowl in their very own Highlander and will be live tweeting their wild ride. Anyone can be a part of the fun by tweeting @Toyota or using the hashtag #NoRoomForBoring.

Check out the commercial for yourself and get ready for some fun and laughs during the premiere of this spot on Super Bowl Sunday as well.

2014 Toyota Highlander Columbia SC

2014 Toyota Highlander

You love the Toyota Highlander, right? It’s a great family crossover that is easy to maneuver as well. But even the best of things have room for improvement and boy, even the near-perfect Highlander stepped it up for the 2014 model year.

One of the reasons people love the Highlander is that it is spacious enough even for a car full of kids and their cargo. But drivers wanted a little more, more room for passengers and more room for stuff. And Toyota listened.

The 2014 Toyota Highlander can now seat up to eight passengers and offers 34% more cargo space behind the third row. This is due in part to a new suspension design as well as a body construction that is 3 inches longer. Now that’s something to celebrate.

Another thing to love about the 2014 Toyota Highlander is its modern new design. Featuring a dramatic, wider grille, wrap-around headlights, and more pronounced taillights, the new Highlander certainly makes a statement. The rear liftgate window is now wider, delivering a more open feel. Opt for the moonroof and you might forget you are in a car altogether.

The interior is not too shabby either, with available leather seating, chrome-plated interior accents, and soft-touch materials throughout. And with a center console big enough to hold a purse or laptop and a storage shelf that continues across the entire dashboard, there is plenty of space for all of your gadgets and gizmos.

Be the first driver in Columbia to experience the 2014 Toyota Highlander by coming to Dick Dyer Toyota once it is released. Be sure to keep up to date with our new car inventory to see when it has arrived!
