2018 Toyota Camry Makes Room For Toyota Tacoma

By  | 

Toyota has been reshuffling their products and this means that they will be able to produce more of the Toyota Tacoma vehicles. On the other side they are decreasing the production of the 2018 Toyota Camry so it’s possible that the Camry might lose its position as the best-seller on the market.

The plans of Toyota mean that they will be able to make sure that their vehicles are kept in-line with the consumer demand over in the US. At the moment crossovers and SUVs are in high demand and this is something that Toyota is going to want to make the most of.

Right now they make a ratio of 50-50 cars to trucks but this will then change and it will be 40-60 split in favour of trucks. The plant over in San Antonio is at the moment running three shifts along with the Tacoma plant over in Mexico. The production schedule will stay in place while the upgrades are finished and then the plant will be more productive towards the end of 2017 or beginning of 2018.

The combined sales of the Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tacoma have been increasing. In 2013 the sales were about 272,000 units, while in 2015 they were around 300,000 units. In 2016 the company sold 310,000 pickup trucks.

So it is looking like the Toyota Camry is going to have to make room to let the Toyota Tacoma in.
