4runners have always been (and still are) built in the Tahara plant in Japan. Hopefully the FJ Cruiser is built at the same placeCruiserhead05 said:I wish.
Last i heard was that it would be built where taco's and 4runners are built.
4runners have always been built at Tahara plant AFAIK.Greaser said:My connections say it will be made by Hino motors which is a subsidiary of Toyota. It will be made at the Tachikawa plant located east of Tokyo. I was at that plant around 1995 and at that time they were making 4 runners, military vehicles, and I think some no exported cars (if memory serves me well).
Good catch. Yes you are correct, the 4 runners are made at the Tahara plant. After thinking about it more, the vehicle I saw being made at Tachikawa is the Japanese version of the 4 runner, called the (Hilux-?) Surf.firetruck41 said:4runners have always been built at Tahara plant AFAIK.
I can't recall a specific plant being mentioned, just that it was to be made in Japan, I thought it logical that it might be made at Tahara, since other US bound Prado based vehicles (4runner) come from there, but hopefully it will be officially announced soon.Greaser said:Good catch.

According to my source, the FJ Cruiser is being made by Hino at the Tachikawa plant. Have you heard otherwise?
I'm still going to ask around to confirm that.
