1968,even my Lexus has a V-8.
Was test driving some of the newer V-6 cars,they have enough power for me,even thinking maybe a four is good enough now.
The Toyota trucks I have owned all had 4s in them,all were Great...I do know it is a weight to power ratio thing.
Wow almost fifty years having a V-8...who can beat that??
