Toyota teases new off-road-ready vehicles in cryptic photo

What is Toyota going to show off at the Chicago Auto Show?

It is simply staggering the amount of work and preparation that goes into an automaker revealing a new model at an auto show. Toyota has already set the bar pretty high after the display it put on at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. However, it looks like they aren’t done yet and we have another special release coming up next month in Chicago. So, what is Toyota going to show off at the Chicago Auto Show? One of the more cryptic teasers the company has ever released showed up on their social media streams today, and it appears we’re going to get a glimpse at a new lineup of TRD branded vehicles.

Canned food drive in South Burlington, VT

With November in full swing, it’s pretty natural for people to start thinking about how great our Thanksgiving dinners are going to be with our families. The dark side of that thought is that there are many people out there who may not be able to put food on the table this year. There is no other way to look at this issue, helping hungry people get something to eat is simply the right thing to do and Heritage Toyota always strives to do the right thing. We have already started a canned food drive in South Burlington, VT with our colleagues over at Heritage Ford to help stock the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. Our efforts started on Nov. 1 and will run until the close of business on Nov. 17. Read the rest of this entry >>

Free Vermont State Park Passes at Heritage Toyota

Free Vermont State Park Passes at Heritage Toyota

One of our favorite uses for a vehicle like the Toyota RAV4 or the all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR is using them to get somewhere fun or exciting. We love the outdoors and highly recommend checking out the various Vermont State Parks. That’s why, throughout June, we will be offering a pass that is good for 10 visits to any of the 57 total Vermont State Parks for all customers who purchase a new or used vehicle!

Beard-growers, unite!


The month of September is officially ‘Septembeard’ at Heritage Ford and Toyota Scion. If you see a bunch off scruffy guys in the showrooms, or service  and parts departments, do not be alarmed; our staff has combined their beard-growing powers and started a team to contribute to Septembeard, an organization dedicated to eradicating prostate cancer, with the help of a little facial hair.

It’s simple: beginning on the last day of August (or the first day of September), our participating beard growers shave clean, and won’t shave again for the whole month of September (except to keep it tidy!). But growing an awesome beard is only half the battle – while the beard growers are busy…well, growing – our friends and family, our non-beard-growing co-workers and even you can sponsor our beards and donate some of your spare pocket change to the cause, and help end prostate cancer.

When you donate, you’ll have a choice of six world-renowned cancer clinics to donate money to, including, UCSF, Memorial Sloan-Kettering, The Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, MD Anderson and Northwestern University. All funds donated are given directly to the foundations, eliminating any additional fees, and putting your donations right into the hands of the cancer research world’s best and brightest, bringing them one step closer to curing prostate cancer.

Ready, Set, Grow!
