Last week, Toyota made the announcement that it will be moving the production of its Toyota Tacomas exclusively to Mexico. While it has also been making Tacomas in its Baja California, Mexico plant for years, the San Antonio, Texas plant will stop making Tacomas by 2021.
It is reported that no jobs will be lost, as the San Antonio plant will continue making the Tundra, but will also take over the production of the Sequoia in 2022. Toyota did invest $1.3 billion in its Indiana plant (which currently makes the Sequoia). That did end up also creating 550 new jobs.
Toyota will continue to make the great mid-sized truck that we know and love, but it will now be a Japanese truck made exclusively in Mexico.
