If you go to http://tinyurl.com/yeunfh (part of the Toyota.com FAQ)
you can see where all the current Toyota model names come from.

Thanks. I vaguely remember the Corona model from umpteen years ago. A
"corona", AFAIK, also denotes a crown. So... did the Camry replace the
Corona? (IOW, was that where it was in the line-up?)

In the U.S., the Camry replaced the Corona around the 1983 model year. The
first Camry was available in 2 body styles, sedan and hatchback and was the
first transverse-mounted front wheel drive Toyota sold in the U.S.

The Tercel was the first front wheel drive Toyota sold in the U.S. but it
had a longitudinally mounted engine and drivetrain.

Thanks - the answer I was looking for, and more. ;-)

You're welcome! Interestingly enough, the Corona name was still used in
other markets

I sort of remember when I was at Okinawa in the 50's Toyota used "Toyopet"
and Crown for their cars there. I seem to remember the Crown was a bigger
car and the Toyopet small. Both were used as taxi's though.

I believe that the Toyopet pre-dated the Crown. The Crown was the largest
model, then the Corona, then the Corolla. All had names with variations of
"crown."

Interesting - and I'd agree with all the definitions of Toyota's model names
except for Tundra....to me, that name means "it's colder than hell
....doesn't the heater work?"

Actually, I think Camry means "Little Crown". I believe the Crown was a
larger model, maybe equivalent to the later Cressida and Avalon.

According to Toyota's web site, "Camry" is Japanese for crown.

The Crown was larger than the Cressida or the Avalon.
