On September 15, Toyota Motor Corporation announced that its overall engine production has reached the 4-million unit mark at TMMA (Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama) in Alabama, USA.

This milestone was achieved 12 years after the Alabama plant was established back in 2003.

Moreover, the 4 millionth engine produced was an inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine.

TMMA produced engines are equipped on seven Toyota models assembled in North America which include the best-selling Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra, and the Venza.

TMMA’s President Jim Bolte said, “Today is an exciting day. It’s the result of all the hard work put in by our team who are dedicated on producing the best engines.”
