Toyota to Expand Highlander Production

Interesting news out of Indiana… Toyota has announced plans to invest $100M to expand Highlander production at their Princeton, IN facility. They will also be adding 300 jobs there by 2016.

From January through July 2014, the Highlander sold ca. 90k units, a 16% increase over the same period in 2013. Not too shabby. Given the strength of Highlander sales, I’m not surprised that they want to increase production capacity. Give the people what they want. 🙂

As I understand it, they have two assembly lines in Indiana. They currently build the Highlander in the West Plant, alongside the larger Sequoia. And they’ll be expanding production to the East Plant, which is currently home to the Sienna minivan.

The end result of all of this will be an additional 30k Highlanders rolling of the assembly line each year. Now if we could just get them to add CarPlay and a bench seat option in the Limited. 😉
