Toyota may bolster truck plant with Camrys

Toyota is considering a plan to adding production of its strong-selling Camry to its underused pickup, SUV and minivan light-truck plant in Princeton, Ind., a supplier source says.

Mike Goss, spokesman for Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, declined to would not confirm the plan. But he added said, "We are looking at a lot of things to balance production."

In May, 51,291 Camrys were sold. The car is assembled in Georgetown, Ky., and on a dedicated assembly line at Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. in Lafayette, Ind. Falling sales of the Tundra full-sized pickup have resulted in lower production at Toyota's two-shift Princeton plant. The Tundra also is assembled in San Antonio. Tundra sales declined 31.5 percent in May. Princeton also assembles the Toyota Sienna minivan and the Toyota Sequoia full-sized SUV.
