What's Cool About My Ride

The Mark X has a loyal following of enthusiasts and owners, as it continues where the Mark II left off when it was replaced in 2004. Internationally, it isn't as well known as the Toyota Crown, which is available new at a different Toyota dealership. The Mark X is not pronounced "Mark Ten" but "Mark Ex", though the Mark II is "Mark Two". The Mark X is a continuation of the previous Mark II and its siblings, the sport-oriented Toyota Chaser, and the luxurious Toyota Cresta in one vehicle, repeating an approach previously attempted by the short lived Toyota Verossa that used straight-6 engines, whereas the Mark X uses V6 engines. The Mark X is currently an alternative to the Toyota Camry, which is the largest sedan new at Toyota Corolla Store locations, for buyers who like the size of the Camry, but prefer a front engine rear drive power-train with the option to add all wheel drive, which the Camry doesn't offer. The Mark X is currently available only in Japan and China (already ended production), where it known as the Reiz, available with either a 253 hp (189 kW) 3.0 L or 212 hp (158 kW) 2.5 L GR series V6 engine. Both engines offer dual VVT-i (variable valve timing) with gasoline direct injection (Japanese models only). The rear-wheel drive models have a 6-speed automatic transmission as standard, and the all-wheel drive models have a 5-speed automatic.
