Originally Toyota sold vehicles under the name of Toyoda (Not in the United States). In 1937 Toyoda was renamed Toyota, an easier and luckier name in the Japanese language.
Toyota was able to capitalize on the 1973 oil crisis in the US due to line of smaller more efficient cars in their lineup. In 1990 Toyota began to start adding more luxurious cars into their lineup, including a full sized pickup the T100. Other more luxurious vehicle added into the lineup include several SUVs, sports cars, and in 1997 Toyota began production of the Hybrid Prius, which as of 2009 is in it’s 3rd generation. Toyota has also added two other Hybrid cars into its line, the Highlander and a Hybrid version of the Camry.
Toyota introduced its latest full sized pickup the Tundra in 2000 to complement its midsized truck the Tacoma.
The Toyota current vehicle line up includes the following vehicles.
