    Im in New England and in my area there are 3 Toyota dealers
    On their websites they list 75 , 53, and 35 Tacomas in transit or build phase but no Tacomas on the lots
    Just curious as to why no trucks on the lot

    Thanks and take care

    Most builds were on a 30+ day quality inspection hold for an unknown reason. That has apparently ended/been fixed and most built trucks are being shipped. New builds are also shipping but it looks like some bottle necks are happening along the way.

    At least that's my understanding from what I have read online.

    Find the allocation list and then find your dealers on the sold tab to see how many they have already sold.

    Also the days of packed lots are likely done, an expense that Toyota doesn’t need to foot as they once did. But! If you are interested in a windchill pearl 6ft sport premium there’s one at handy Toyota in vt and a number of incoming ones landing at McGee Toyota in nh this week. There just from talking to sales reps this past week

    No, I am just noticing the name Toyota and Disruption in the same sentence of the Car and Driver story.

    No suggesting needed both Baltimore and Newark ports are used for Tacomas.

    I just look forward to the dealers in our region claiming the port disruption on the right coast has interrupted the supply here....:confused:

    New England Region -- Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island
    Greater New YorkRegion -- New York, New Jersey, Connecticut
    Central AtlanticRegion -- Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, District of Columbia
    Southeast Region (SET) -- North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida
    Western Region -- Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota
    Ohio ValleyRegion -- Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee
    Midwest Region -- Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota
    Mountain Region -- Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming
    Gulf StatesRegion (GST) -- Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi
    Northern CARegion -- California north of the Los Angeles metro area
    Southern CARegion -- Los Angeles metro area, and areas south

    It possibly could if mid Atlantic trucks get stuck at the factory or something because they can't get moved out via boat. But let's hope not

    The perception of scarcity alone can stimulate demand, and it helps that Gen4 is very good. Toyota sales managers from Toronto to Flagstaff will use the word “Baltimore”, if it helps them sell a $1000 paint sealant or dump on someone’s trade.

    Problem for Toyota is that they’re already locked into two full factories producing 250-300k overpriced trucks regardless. And time is absolutely not on their side.

    Speaking only from my personal experience, the '24 Tacoma I have a deposit on will not be affected by the Baltimore bridge collapse. Port of entry for the truck is San Diego (I'm assuming departing the Baja factory). Dealer said from there it heads North East via rails, before being loaded onto a truck and delivered to individual dealerships. Again, just what I'm being told by my dealer. I gotta say though, loading Tacomas into containers, stacking them onto cargo ships in the Pacific, and sailing from Mexico down to Panama and then back up the East coast to Baltimore (or stacking cans onto ships in the Gulf of Mexico and sailing North from there) seems like a really stupid way to distribute vehicles to the North East.

    I'd think they would go on these in lieu of containers.

    Ah, yeah. That seems more reasonable. lol. Using a boat like that to get from Mexico to USA does not.

    Why not ? Mexico has ocean on one side and gulf on the other. Seems like a reasonable transit route
