2018 Toyota Camry Is Going To Move From The Spotlight For Tacoma

By  | 

Toyota has been making some reshuffles among their products so that they will be able to produce the Toyota Tacoma in more volume. The production of the Toyota Camry however is going the other way as it will be slowed down. There is some worry that this will lead to the Camry losing position as at the moment it is the best-seller for the company.

The plans of Toyota will ensure that vehicles aren’t going to fall behind when it comes to demand from the consumer over in the US. SUVs along with crossovers are very high in demand right now and of course Toyota wants to take full advantage of this and produce more pickups.

Right now they are making a 50-50 ration of cars to trucks but with the refresh this is going to change and it will be a 40-60 split with trucks being in favour. At the moment the San Antonio plant is running on three shifts and the same applies to the Mexico plant. It is thought that the production schedule is going to be the same until the upgrades finish. The plant will then become more productive by the beginning of 2017 or possibly 2018.

Sales of the Toyota Tacoma along with the Tundra have increased. During 2013 the sales were 272,000 units and 2015 saw 300,000 units, while in 2016 it has risen to 310,000.
