Toyota car sales were actually down. Looks like Rav4 sales are already cannabalizing the Highlander with non-hybrid sales down 4K units....who didn't see that coming. The Rav4 and IS300 are really the only positives out of it.

I bet the Camry had a big fleet month with the new one coming next month.

The Lucerne outsold the Avalon and it's still picking up steam, though it seems to be stealing some LaCrosse sales too.

Not a great month for Toyota, but sales were still up.

A 2.4% increase for Toyota is small for them, usually they're up around  10% every month year over year.

I cannot go up forever, one day it will stop and decline.

Clean your glasses before you make such idiotic statements.

Maybe you do not know, even though it has been said, the next-gen Highlander will be larger to compete with the Lambdas so the size of Rav4 was increased to cover what would have been a large size gap.

The Land Cruiser will be cancelled soon, thank God, I think this is the last model year for it. That leaves Toyota with 4 and if it cares to have a smaller than Rav4 SUV, which would make some sense, it is free to do so.

Apparently, GM needs a lot more than 6 SUVs.
