You Make Toyota No. 1

2014 Toyota Tundra

It’s consumers like you who make Suburban Toyota Scion of Troy proud to be part of the Toyota family — the nation’s no. 1 retail manufacturer as of April 2013.

In March alone, your vote of confidence in our vehicles, such as our Avalon XLE Premium and Toyota Tacoma V6, and decision to purchase Toyota, Scion and Lexus vehicles helped  Toyota’s national sales to sail past the competition — NOS-style.

That means for the first quarter of 2013, Toyota sold nearly 529,450 vehicles, or a 10 percent increase compared to vehicle sales during the same time frame in 2012.  In March alone, sales were up 4.8 percent on a daily selling rate basis.

“The auto industry continued its string of impressive monthly results, and at Toyota we had our best month since Cash for Clunkers in August of 2009,” said Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.  “A strong first-quarter close and increased consumer confidence continue to position the auto industry as a leader in the economic recovery.”

So what do our customers like?  Avalon and Corolla, undoubtedly.

Specifically, Toyota Corolla sales shot up 11.1 percent, with sales of 31,423 vehicles, which is why our dealership continues to offer folks a broad range of the model, from the 2010 Corolla LE to the 2013 Corolla S Special Edition.

As part of the Toyota family, Suburban Toyota Scion of Troy also encourages you to check out the 2013 Toyota Tacoma V6 to see exactly why so many customers bought the Tacoma series, increasing sales by more than 21 percent.

Not a 4.0 liter kind of car owner, but like the feel of a truck? No worries, Toyota Motor Sales also reported an increasing popularity of the RAV-4. In fact the small, 2.5-liter SUV, like our 2013 Rav4 LE, ranked as the best-selling truck with more than 75,000 vehicles sold — a year-to-year increase of 7.3 percent.

So next time you’re car shopping, come visit us at Suburban Toyota Scion of Troy. We won’t try to sell you on any hard pitches because we’ll just let this year’s quarterly statistics do the talking for us. That is, Toyota is the “No. 1 retail nameplate.”
