Toyota Texas plant hits milestone of building 1 millionth truck

Article by Anita Panait, on September 20, 2013

Toyota Texas has built its one millionth truck – a milestone that has the site’s 2,800-strong team celebrating. Team members attributed the milestone – marked by a Sunset Bronze Mica colored, 1794 Edition Tundra – to Toyota’s satisfied customers. If the one million trucks that Toyota Texas has built would be lined up, they would cover around 3,700 miles – equivalent to the distance from The Alamo to Honolulu, Hawaii.

Chris Nielsen, president of Toyota Texas, said that they are grateful for loyal customers across North America who said that “they love driving Texas-built Tacomas and Tundras.” Nielsen quipped that he takes pride in Toyota Texas’ team members and 21 on-site suppliers every time he sees one of their trucks plying the road.

Toyota Texas, which builds the Tacoma and Tundra trucks, will celebrate its 10th anniversary since groundbreaking this fall. The new 1794 Edition Tundra pays tribute to the ranch where the plant is located.

It was founded in 1794. The Tacomas and Tundras are powered by V6 and V8 engines built at Toyota’s Huntsville engine plant in Alabama. Transmissions, meanwhile, are produced in Durham, North Carolina. Toyota Texas commenced production of the Tundra in October 2006, and of the Tacoma in 2010.
