Toyota Texas Produces One-Millionth Pickup
It’s been a huge milestone for Toyota’s U.S. manufacturing arm as the 2,800 team members at Toyota Texas, on San Antonio’s South Side, celebrated the milestone of assembling the plant’s one millionth truck – a Sunset Bronze Mica colored, 1794 Edition Tundra. –
Toyota Texas produces the Tacoma and Tundra trucks and will celebrate its 10 year anniversary since groundbreaking this fall.
The new 1794 Edition Tundra is a tribute to the ranch, founded in 1794, on which the truck plant is located.
