Toyota Texas starts new Tundra production

First full redesign since plant opened in 2006.

By Graeme Roberts

Production of the redesigned 2022 Tundra has begun at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas (TMMTX).

The new range, including a hybrid, is the truck’s first major model change since the then new plant began assembling trucks in 2006.

Twenty suppliers also operate on the site.

In 2019, TMMTX announced a spend of US$391m to prepare for production of the new model, taking cumulative investment to $3.1bn.

The factory was expanded to accommodate new processes and technology and prepare to assemble a hybrid electric version.

TMMTX has annual capacity for 208,000 vehicles.
