The smallest and biggest vehicles of the 2000 Toyota line-up are highlighted this model year. Replacing the Tercel that was retired after 1998, the Echo is now Toyota's newest entry-level subcompact car. Offered as a coupe or sedan, Toyota Echo is a sleek-looking front-wheel drive powered by a small four-cylinder for maximized fuel economy. Younger buyers with an appetite for performance will be attracted by two refreshed offerings from Toyota. All-new for 2000 is the Toyota Celica and a mid-engined MR2 roadster. Toyota's Avalon sedan flagship is wider and taller for 2000 sculpted into a body that achieves a drag coefficient of 0.28. A new driving experience is possible with the Toyota Camry Solara in 2000 with the introduction of a convertible body style. The Camry sedan's body receives a mild front and rear styling makeover for 2000. Toyota exhibits intent to fully immerse themselves in the large pickup truck market dominated by American automakers in 2000. The 2000 Toyota Tundra is constructed in the United States and meant to measure up to the demands of American truck buyers thanks to a brand-new i-Force V-8 engine. The Toyota RAV4's two-door hardtop configuration is no longer available in the United States for 2000.
