With a reputation for reliability that borders on legendary, Toyota is one of the world’s most widely recognized automakers. What some shoppers at our Toyota dealership serving Madison might not realize, though, is how many milestones had to be achieved along the way!
Take a look to see how some of Toyota’s best-known models became what they are today.
Nowadays, the 2018 Toyota Camry is among the most popular vehicles at our Madison area showroom. In fact, it was the best selling sedan in the United States last year. Becoming the most popular car in America, though, didn’t happen overnight.
A few big steps had to happen along the way. One major leap forward happened in 1988, when Toyota first began producing Camry models on U.S. soil. A few years later, in 1992, the model received a major design overhaul that helped it better suit the needs of American drivers. The rest, it seems, is history!
Of course, Toyota makes more than just sedans. The automaker’s history with pickups has taken some big strides, too, as the internationally popular Tacoma (known overseas as the Hilux) proves. It’s the brand’s voyage into full-size trucks, though, that caught our attention.
Following the popularity of the Tacoma, Toyota didn’t jump straight into full-size models. Instead, it first released the T100–a truck that landed somewhere between mid- and full-size– to mixed results. It was only at the turn of the 21st century that Toyota committed to a full-size offering, introducing the Tundra. Since then, the Tundra has gained a lot of popularity for fusing capability, comfort, and dependability.
Whether you’re after a sedan, a truck, or something else entirely, Toyota has proved time and time again that it has customers in mind with its incredible designs.
