    Toyota Increases Production of Trucks For U.S.


    • More Trucks Will Be Rolling Of Toyota's Production Lines

    To meet the growing demand for pickups in the U.S., Toyota will be boosting production of the Tacoma and Tundra in 2016.

     

    Bill Fay, head of Toyota's U.S. division says a third shift has been added to their Baja California, Mexico plant (Tacoma) and an additional 250 workers, plus a more flexible work schedule to its San Antonio, Texas plant (Tacoma and Tundra).

     

    The new workers and extra production will be in place in San Antonio by the middle of next year, said Fay.

     

    At the moment, Toyota's dealers are sitting on a 20-day supply of the Tundra, while the Tacoma is at a 10-day supply.

     

    "If you were to ask any of our U.S. dealers what they want, I'd say every one of them would say 'More trucks," said Bob Carter, senior vice president for U.S. Toyota operations.

    Makes sense with the crewcab models, you get a very versatile auto. GM is doing well in this segment, I am sure Ford and Ram are reviewing it as there is money on the table till the next Gas run up in prices.
