I love these prediction pieces. If everything goes their way (which recently it has) Toyota has been predicted to overtake DaimlerChrysler by 2009 in the US. DCX numbers include Mercedes Benz. Toyota is including Lexus and Scion. The biggest obstacle in this prediction is not taking in account the other great products out there. Toyota doesn't own the "reliability" category anymore and appliance-like designs only work for so long. IF Toyota revamps the lineup with some passionate product, then their growth will be founded. Last year I'm sure these guys didn't predict the kind of hoopla the new LX cars created for the Chrysler Group.
