Toyota has developed revolutionary strategies to help conserve water during its manufacturing processes. Conventional auto manufacturing techniques rely heavily on purified water. If water does not reach the specified level of purification, it is sent down the drain. To help conserve water, Toyota has introduced an innovative water purifying method called reverse osmosis. This water purification technique allows Toyota to use more of its available water, while reducing waste. Overall, Toyota’s plants are now able to use up to 90 percent of their available water. With this eco-friendly initiative, Toyota is improving the sustainability of its manufacturing facilities.

Toyota has confirmed that it will unveil a freshened 2015 Toyota Camry on April 16 at the 2014 New York Auto Show. Industry sources expect Toyota to announce a new engine or possibly a new automatic transmission in an effort to boost the Camry's fuel economy. In a statement released by Toyota, the automaker said it "will reveal a refreshed Camry that will challenge conventional expectations of a mid-cycle model change." No other details were provided. Toyota redesigned the Camry for the 2012 model year so an update was expected. A major redesign of the Camry is planned for the 2017 or 2018 model year, industry sources say. In an interview this past February with Bill Fay, Toyota Division general manager, Fay suggested that a dramatic change in Camry's sheet metal that might possibly alienate core buyers was not planned for the near term. "When you sell 400,000 of anything you have to appeal to a broad consumer base," Fay told Edmunds. "That kind of approach goes into everything we do. We have to keep that appeal with Camry if we are going to keep the pace where it is at." He was interviewed last month at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Camry has been the No. 1-selling car in the United States for the past 12 years. Toyota sold over 400,000 Camry vehicles in each of the past two years. Toyota executives have vowed to keep Camry's No. 1 ranking this year. We wish we had more to tell you than this, but unfortunately, that's about all we've got to go on at this time….Stay tuned!!

Every year, Toyota drives forward with design and innovation, not only keeping up with trends, but truly setting them. In this video, we get a look at the inspiration behind the new design features of the 2014 Toyota Highlander.
This year’s Toyota Highlander, more than ever before, was designed to reflect the lives of the people who drive it. Inside and out, the Highlander expresses and encourages movement, excitement, and fun. One element in particular was left out of Toyota’s design language: compromise.
For a closer look at the inspired design of the new Highlander, come to Jerry’s Toyota for a test drive. Call (888) 714-6153 with any questions about our inventory, maintenance services, or financing.

New vehicles today are more complex and technologically advanced than ever. Surprisingly, that means that basic maintenance is all the easier for the average driver. The trickier tasks can be left to your local dealership’s technicians, but there are some things you can do yourself if you’re so inclined—just make sure you don’t do them terribly wrong.
Keeping your tires properly inflated is crucial to both safety and fuel economy. Overfilled tires stress the capacity limits of the rubber and offer far too little traction. Underfilled tires greatly reduce fuel economy and wear down quickly. Many people think that the PSI listed on the tire is the recommended pressure, but the value you should use is actually provided by your car’s manufacturer. You can find the tire pressure recommendations in your owner’s manual or on the driver’s side doorjamb.
Your car’s various fluids will need to be replaced or topped off on occasion. If you’re not familiar with all of your car’s fluid systems and decide to try some at-home maintenance, you could do serious damage. Oil changes should be accompanied by oil filter changes to avoid immediately fouling the new oil. A much more serious concern is using the wrong fluid for a particular system. Automatic Transmission Fluid, for example, could ruin a braking or cooling system and necessitate extensive repairs.
If you’ve ever had a dead battery and had someone give you a jump, you know that it is incredibly helpful and actually looks quite easy. While the process is not difficult, it must be done in a very specific way to avoid dangerous and disastrous situations. Connecting jumper cables in the wrong order or to the wrong points on the car can lead to electrocution, fire, and electrical system damage.
Jerry’s Toyota offers drivers in the Baltimore area an easy way to keep their cars in shape.
