2019 Toyota Prius Salisbury MD Delmarva Peninsula
Who remembers when the first new Toyota Prius was released here at Pohanka Toyota of Salisbury on the Delmarva Peninsula? Most people figured it was just another one of those newfangled hybrid models that seemed too weak and small to be useful. But there was still something about that first new Prius that made those same people feel like the winds were changing when it came to hybrid models.
Fast forward to the 2019 model year and here we are talking about a new Prius model featuring all-wheel drive. That’s right, the 2019 Toyota Prius lineup now features available all-wheel drive, making it one of the most fuel efficient all-wheel drive equipped models in America. Combine that with a refreshed exterior, an updated interior, and a complete set of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features, and you’ve got a hybrid that’s ready to make a believer out of even the staunchest hybrid doubter.

These days, now that they include the same features and interior space as other non-hybrid models, a new hybrid model is only as good as its hybrid powertrain. And since that’s the case, the 2019 Toyota Prius lineup is as good as it gets.
That’s because the 2019 Toyota Prius lineup is powered by a hybrid powertrain made up of a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder DOHV engine featuring 121 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque, a Permanent Magnet AC Synchronous Motor featuring 71 horsepower and 120 pound-feet of torque, and the choice between a nickel-metal hydride battery or a lithium-ion battery.
Those are impressive power numbers, sure, but even more impressive are the gas mileage ratings you’ll get with your new Prius. That’s because the 2019 Prius lineup gets up to 58 city MPG and 53 highway MPG – gas mileage ratings that only drop to 52 city MPG and 48 highway MPG when you add all-wheel drive.
