    In September of 2021, the last Toyota Tacoma built in the United States, was assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas in San Antonio, TX.

    The first one was built on Thursday, August 6, 2010, a 2011 TRD Off-Road DCSB V6 4x4 6MT in Super White [040].

    • Tacomas built at TMMTX, from August 6, 2010 to September 2021 have the VINs starting with 5T.
      • Also applicable to N200 2nd generation pickups, built in both NUMMI in Fremont California, from September 14, 2004 to March 26, 2010 and 1st generation trucks built from January 1995 to August 2004.

    OP forgot to mention two items:
    - Non union plant
    - 75% of the plant staff are contractors. Only 700 staff are Toyota employees

    Very well made. I knew some of this, but was surprised to see that production shifted late in 2021 - somewhere in my mind I thought it had shifted earlier such that all the 2021s onwards were being built in the new plant.

    Good info. I'm curious, why did they stop production in Texas? Seems pricey to build, outfit and staff a plant when you already have one up and running doing the same thing. I'm assuming it was getting too expensive to build in the US?
