Brand new Toyota SUV to be produced at Huntsville Mazda-Toyota plant
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant being built in Huntsville will manufacture a yet-to-be-announced SUV for Toyota.
In an announcement made today, company leaders calls this a shift in their future production plans. However, they say the changing market demands and “growing consumer appetite” for light trucks and SUVs prompted the change.
The company says more details related to the SUV will be released at a later date.
