Toyota is considered as one of the key players on global car market. It offers plenty models of different types. There are also vehicles that are offered for specific markets. One of those models is Rush, a crossover that is offered in some specific countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia etc. It is basically a seven-seat version of small crossover called Terios, which is produced by Daihatsu. It came in 2008, based on the second generation of Terios. According to the latest reports, Daihatsu prepares new, redesigned model, so it is expected that new Toyota’s version will come. It will come in next few year, maybe already as 2017 Toyota Rush.
2017 Toyota Rush redesign
The 2017 Toyota Rush is likely to come redesigned. However, details are still unknown so we must rely on speculations. It is still unknown, but seems most likely that new model will continue based on Daihatsu model. However, there are some reports that Toyota could launch new model with its own platform and other characteristics. However, you should take this with big reserve, because it is nothing more than ordinary rumor. In any case, 2017 Rush is expected to come completely redesigned, with plenty of significant changes. We expect to see new platform, new look, new cabin equipped with plenty of advanced technologies, both in terms of safety and entertainment.
2017 Toyota Rush engine
It is still hard to make some prediction about engine that will be used for 2017 Toyota Rush. Current model is powered with 1.5 liter petrol unit, which outputs 107 horsepower. It is still unknown will new model come with new engine or will it feature the same, which will in that case come with improvements both in terms of power and fuel economy. On the other side, we think that new transmission will come for sure. Current 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic are pretty much outdated, so it is highly expected that 2017 Rush will get new transmission.
2017 Toyota Rush release date
The exact date of launch of 2017 Toyota Rush is still unknown, but according to some reports, it should come somewhere in 2017.
