Toyota looking at filling extra truck plant capacity with Camrys

The three domestic automakers aren't the only ones feeling the pain of plummeting full-size pickup truck sales. Even Toyota Tundra sales were down 34 percent in May compared to last year. Sales of the Camry were down slightly due to supply constraints. The Camry, which has long been the top selling car in the U.S. market, lost out to the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla in May. The Princeton, Indiana plant that builds Tundras is running below capacity. Toyota is now considering adding production of the Camry to Princeton. The plant already builds Sienna minivans in addition to the trucks, so adding the sedans shouldn't be to difficult.
