    Hmm, I must've gotten an early version. We'll go with the one Danny posted.

    So why is the "front and rear parking assist with auto braking" a $35 option on the base model?! That seems excessively weird.

    I think it's supposed to be $350.

    Honestly...it is very strange that it is even an option at all...I can't see a reason for that other than to shave another $350 off the base price.

    That and sensors. Some people may not want all those sensors ($$$ repair bill on a minor ding or fender bender)

    Toyota might want to ensure the higher trims have plenty of those senors available for them.

    I’m sure the 10mm wider 205 on a 17 wheel would have much less of a mpg penalty than the 19” wheels are imposing on the XLE and Limited models and the 1 inch extra sidewall would be far better riding and much more pothole proof than the 195/50-19s.

    The weight should be lighter than the 19in set, but if you are swapping the 195/60R17 tires....

    Uh oh, so no more 1.8L 2ZR-FXE production? Wondering if the 1.8L is going to be made maybe as an option somewhere else in the world?

    If not, will any company purchase the tooling to produce aftermarket?

    One of those moments again where I'm like... a 1.5L adapter option would be a super cost effective route for the Gen3 & Gen4's. :)

    The 1.8L is a more efficient engine than the 1.5L for how most people drive. The 1.5 did fine in the gen2, and great in the c, but 3 and 4 might be heavy enough to have it working harder, outside its efficiency band.

    Seems the 1.8 is a Japan only option. The 2L is a more advanced engine, and is more thermally efficient. The fuel economy differences may not be that great. The Corolla hybrid has had both in Europe for some years now.

    Having engine options increase the costs bringing them to market. Which is why the US tends to have more limited choices. The 2L in the Prius is a big way to get people to pick it over the Corolla.

    Excellent @Trollbait ! I appreciate the insight. Good to know there will be newer stock JDM engines still in the future.

    For some background regarding; I have these thoughts in my head like, "$300 something dollars for a low mileage 1.5L engine assembly out the door compared to $1,200 at best for a maybe lower mileage 1.8L assembly" and "If I leave the transfer case in my Dodge Ram, the 1.5L can be retro fitted somehow for a cost including all the drivetrain with all the electronics minus the drive battery for less than the 1.8L engine assembly alone, unless I can get to the yard with a gen 3 or 4 before the pickers do."

    There's a 50% sale going on at two of the area yards and I'm like... ew... that'd be nice if one shows! :)

    The 1.5 engine in the C is a little beast, and I dare say it is one of Toyota's most reliable and proven engines. I agree though...the 1.5 would not suit the Gen3+ Prius. The C is so light that it works pretty well.

    Tangent alert : Incidentally, we also call the Prius C 'little beast' since it did exceptionally well last year when my daughter drove a 60 mile round trip commute with it *all winter* last winter. (y) With a set of snows, of course.

    I'm sorry for the strange thread drift here, but I didn't want to start a new thread for one quick question, and I figured the people most likely to have the answer are already posting in this thread.

    I'm keeping an eye on parts.toyota.com for when the 2023 Prius is added to the database, but we're already a few months into the overall Toyota 2023 model year and only the BZ4X is listed as a 2023 model. Does anyone know if it's typical for new models to take this long for their parts catalogs to be added to the database? And does TIS get parts updates at the same time as parts.toyota.com or is TIS updated first? Thanks.

    I'm also checking daily for the 2023 Prius Prime manual to be added to Toyota's website. I'll post in one of the pinned threads as soon as it's live.

    Pro tip...it is PriusChat...topics *always* seem to drift. (y)

    I'm very interested to see the 2023 Prime manual as well. I'm even more interested to see the 2023 tech doc details when they appear.

    Wow, now my $1,200 source jacked their prices up to $3,200. I was also told by another reputable mechanic not to trust the JDM engines and he's doing the replacements with a 4 year warranty for $4,000.

    Well... still... the JDM's can be inspected even if their mileage isn't substantiated other than by hearsay.

    Is anyone aware of a heat sink on the Gen 4 and later 1.8L engine? If there is, is that a part that can be DIY'd or upgraded without replacing the head?

    Does that heat sink or, whatever the design change is, also help with reducing issues with the head gasket failing?

    Wondering if there are any design changes with the Japanese market 1.8L engine?

    There’s an extensive plastic sleeve in the blocks coolant passages, intended to homogenize temps IIRC. Doubt you could add that to third gen block.

    My 2 cents: the head gasket failures are due to EGR clogging. Keep it clean, say every 50k, and stick with 5k max oil changes, and you’ll have a good chance of dodging runaway oil consumption and blown head gasket.
