Where did you see it at?

Why does the Solara get a 3.3L engine (from Highlander) while the 2003.5 Camry gets the 3.0L engine (from Avalon)?

I believe it is due to the Solara being Toyota/Lexus's only touring/luxury coupe and that it doesn't compete with anything else in their line-up. On the other hand, they have to restrain the Camry somewhat so that it doesn't steal sales from the Lexus ES.

Pretty Nice dude! The thing with the Solora's, is they look good at certian views and odd at others. But my overall first impression is THUMBS UP! Can't wait to see what TRD has instored.

Because Toyota needs to compete with Nissan & Honda (7gen AV6 coupe AT/MT) in hp war. It will loose out in performance but it will be the best built in the three. I still wouldn't get any Toyota unless it's a SC430 or GS430.

Yeah I know what engine your talking about . They said it's smoother at WOT than the Lexus’s LS430 engine. Only comes on one car that Toyota of Japan makes, the Toyota Century. A 85 grand car with a DOHC V12 with 276 bhp and 354 TQ. Only 600 were sold last year and is sold know were else in the world.. Thank you C&D .
