Here is a recap of the Toyota/Lexus news for the week of April 22, 2016
Dear Readers of THQ – every week we get an email news recap of all the items from Toyota and Lexus. Historically, we have cherry picked these items to only include truck stories, however, we wonder if you would like the full recap of all the items as well. See below for the recap and let us know in the comments your thoughts.
There is something nice about being consistent. For 12 years, Vincentric, an automotive data analysis firm, has given out awards for the best value in America and for 12 straight years, the Toyota Tacoma has won its category. In the heated full-size, half-ton segment, the Toyota Tundra finished second to the Ford F-150.
Pricing has been announced on the gas version of the Nissan Titan XD and it is pretty close to the current MSRP of the Toyota Tundra. How close? Really close. Which leaves the ultimate question: will it sway buyers?
Another month in the books for 2016 and another almost predictable result for Toyota Trucks. With all the focus on the Tacoma, as well as taking the lion’s share of the production mix at the factory, its sales are up and the Tundra’s sales are down. This trend looks like it will continue through 2016.
