Texas Plant Produces its One-Millionth Toyota Truck

The Alamo. Barbecue. Hank Williams. Hank Williams, Jr.

We don't want to overstep our bounds or anything, but if we had to guess what Texans love most, those four things would be high up on the list. Can't say we blame them, they've certainly got their merits. But if there's one thing that Texans seem to love more than anything else in this world, it's pickup trucks. And with the help of our favorite automaker here at Lithia Toyota of Klamath Falls, Texas has been making us awfully proud as of late.

Now, all the way back in 2006, the brass at Toyota opened the doors on a brand new truck plant in San Antonio, TX. When they first started out, they were moving Toyota Tundra models down the assembly line and Tundra models only. But as time went on and production increased, they eventually started manufacturing Toyota Tacoma models, too.

Being that they were located in the pickup-loving capital of the USA, it goes without saying that business has been booming for our friends down South these past eight years. And now that they've assembled their one-millionth truck, the good times roll on.

As for the millionth model in question, it was none other than a 2014 Toyota Tundra 1874 Edition which was built as a tribute to the ranch that the plant was built on. As for the men and women who helped them reach such a milestone, all credit is due to the 2,800 team members who put their heart and soul into these beauties.

With that said, there's never been a better time to follow in Texas' footsteps with a test drive in a pickup at our dealership here in Klamath Falls, OR. After all, there's good reason why no one messes with those folks.
