Here at Toyota of Orlando, we hugely appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women of our armed forces make for our country. We don’t know where we’d be without them, and we greatly respect their dedication to keeping all of us safe. In order to try and show some of our appreciation we offer the Toyota Military Rebate, which is a rebate for those customers who are serving in the Marines, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, and National Guard. However, our Orlando Toyota dealership’s not the only one who truly appreciates our country’s armed forces!
Toyota awards Robert Loria with a new Toyota RAV4
Toyota decided to show their appreciation to a wounded Iraq war veteran last week at the New York International Auto Show and teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Project – they’re a national organization dedicated to bringing help and public awareness to our country’s veterans. They strive to bring more awareness to the needs of veterans who return home, and Toyota teamed up with them to help out one veteran in particular!
On April 19, Army Specialist Robert J. Loria was awarded with a new Toyota RAV4 that was specially designed and outfitted just for him by Toyota and Wounded Warriors. Loria served in Iraq and was severely injured in an explosion during his time there. In 2005 he was providing security for an EOD team when an IED exploded, injuring an EOD technician attempting to disable it. While Loria was giving him aid another IED exploded, causing Loria to lose the loss of his left leg and also lose his left arm from the elbow down.
The 2014 Toyota RAV4 that was awarded to Loria has special accommodations to help give him the functionality and mobility that he had before, and allow him to return to the independence and autonomy that he enjoyed before the accident. It’s decked out with a special steering knob and other accommodations to make Loria’s drive time as easy and enjoyable as it gets!
We think the Orlando Toyota RAV4 is a great option for this veteran – it’s large enough to get a lot of cargo and passengers around town, but compact enough to still be majorly maneuverable and efficient on gas. Here are some of the other features we love about this new Toyota in Orlando:
- A steering wheel capped with audio and Bluetooth controls so you can control your music and phone calls without even taking your attention off the road
- Dual zone climate control to ensure that everyone gets comfortable no matter how long the trip
- A height-adjustable power liftgate to make loading and unloading as easy as it gets
- A backup camera to give you a little more visibility behind you without having to turn your head
- The Smart Key System with a Push Button Start for both security and efficiency
