The 2018 Toyota Camry: Made in Kentucky
At Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky Inc. (TMMK), their team is thrilled to celebrate the launch of the new 2018 Toyota Camry. This premium sedan is better than ever with a new engine, new active safety features, and plenty of modern tech. On top of that, the largest Toyota manufacturing facility in the world is located right here in Kentucky. In fact, to help produce the new Camry, they’ve added over 700 people to their staff. Find out how this team has made the Camry one of the most advanced sedans on the planet in this guide from Watermark Toyota.
Toyota New Global Architecture Advantages
To create the new Camry, TMMK needed to reach new heights, as the 2018 Camry is the first North American Toyota vehicle to use Toyota’s New Global Architecture program. This platform will eventually be used with all Toyota vehicles except large SUVs and pickups, and it offers superior fuel economy, performance, and modular design to help keep costs down. In addition to hiring more workers, Toyota has invested 1.3 billion dollars to overhaul their Kentucky plant. Check out these facts to find out more about Toyota’s commitment to the American workforce:
- Total TMMK Facility Size: 8.1 million square feet
- Current Full-Time Employment: 8,200
- Annual Vehicle Production Capacity: 550,000
- Annual Engine Production Capacity: 600,000
- Overall Investment Since 2013: $1.86 billion
- Direct, Indirect, and Spin-Off Jobs Supported: 30,000
As you can see, the TMMK plant is an institution in Kentucky, and together with Toyota engineering, it will help to propel the state into the future. Of course, the Camry wouldn’t be able to come to you without Toyota’s network of local dealerships, and that’s where Watermark Toyota comes in.
