2010 Toyota Prius - Click above for high-res image gallery

For the 2011 model year, Toyota decided to leave its Prius virtually untouched. We won't see a host of aerodynamic tweaks like we witnessed in the 2010 model and it's unlikely that we'll see any changes to its EPA fuel-economy rating, which comes in at a rather astounding 51 miles per gallon city and 48 mpg highway. In fact, if not for the 2011 model's slightly higher price tag, it could be the 2010 Prius' identical twin.

The 2011 Toyota Prius ranges in price from $23,050 to $28,230. The MSRP of the entire range of U.S.-bound Prius models (Levels II through V) increased by a meager $250. The increase is so minute that we'd hardly expect it to dissuade buyers from purchasing the Prius, but potential competitors are on their way, so we'll find out soon enough. Hit the jump for more on Toyota's pricing of its 2011 models.
