A $282-million project will add new drivetrain capacity for Toyota’s largest North American engine plant, in Huntsville, Ala., adding 350 jobs.

Toyota Motor North America is expanding its largest internal combustion engine production plant with a new, $282 million project that will add more capacity for drivetrain products. The automaker did not detail the scope of new operations planned for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama, in Huntsville, nor the schedule for the expansion.

The plant has been operating since 2003, and the new investment will raise Toyota’s total capital commitment there to $1.7 billion, it noted.

TMMA manufactures four-cylinder, V6, and V8 engines that it supplies to seven Toyota assembly plants in North America, for the Corolla, Corolla Cross, Highlander, RAV4, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, and Tundra platforms. Its 2023 output totaled more than 770,000 engines.

The plant currently employs more than 2,000 workers, and the additional capacity will result in 350 new positions.

“Thanks to our Alabama team members’ daily commitment to quality and continuous improvement, we know they can rise to the challenge of all-new production lines,” stated Toyota Alabama president Jason Puckett. “The new lines will further increase the plant’s flexibility and reaffirm Toyota’s commitment to our team and community.”
