As for the Kluger - sold in North America as the Highlander - the new 2014 model will replace the second-generation SUV that debuted globally in 2007, and gained a refreshed look in 2010.
Toyota has yet to offer any firm details on the new family wagon, although it is expected that the carmaker's sharp new styling language will feature.
Unlike the Corolla, Camry and RAV4 however, the new Kluger is likely to maintain a large front grille design, rather than the slim 'deep-V' style of its smaller stablemates.
Engine options for the new Kluger could include a 133kW 2.5 litre petrol four and a more powerful 200kW 3.5 litre V6.
A hybrid version of the Kluger is also available in overseas markets, matching a 3.5 V6 with an electric motor in standard Toyota fashion.
As with the current model, Toyota is not expected to offer a diesel option with the new Kluger, and the next hybrid model is also not expected to get a right-hand-drive option.
To satisfy demand for an affordable large diesel SUV - and to battle the Holden Colorado 7, Nissan Pathfinder and the coming Ford Ranger SUV - Toyota Australia may instead import the next Hilux-based Fortuner, currently manufactured in Thailand.
Bringing the Fortuner to Australia would also fill the space left by the upwardly-mobile Prado.
Watch for more details on the new Kluger to surface in the coming weeks.
