Seems fitting to have a Taco built in Mexico.
I knew they were going to be building Tacos in Mexico, but I thought it was supplementary to the Texas plant, not a move. I guess they aren't going to be flooding the market with Tacoma's after all.
Well, it appears they will be building more than they are today - from the article:
Which seems somewhat risky to me - with new players coming into the market and the Tacoma showing its age, expecting to sell more seems kind of risky to me. Thus far, it seems most of the Ranger sales came from the GM Twins and also a somewhat expanding market for mid sized trucks.
The next few years in this market will be very interesting. The new Ranger, a potential new Dakota, possibly a Tacoma refresh and who knows what else. It is all good for us consumers....
True. I guess a "flood" to me meant having both plants running at full clip, which would essentially double Tacoma production. This might be their "safe" ramp up to test the waters if the public desire is there for that many Taco's. I agree it's risky in this day and age of midsize truck development. We'll see what happens.
Yeah, not a "flood", more like a small leak. It will be interesting to see if they continue to maintain sales if they don't do a significant refresh on the Taco.
My traded 2017 Tacoma sr5 was built in Mexico, and I thought they already did a refresh in 2016 that my x bought and I liked the looks so I bought one too, however I traded it for a full size one year later, here is a pic of that Tacoma along with my hot little Ranger that beats the Tacoma in all aspects. That is my opine anyhow.
LOL...maybe from a trailer
