Toyota Crash Testing
Automakers like Toyota are constantly building a portion of its fleet of vehicles with the sole purpose of smashing them into other objects. Since it would be more than somewhat dangerous to have humans in these destroyed vehicles, the job has fallen to the venerable crash test dummy. It is truly unfair to call these human analogs, dummies. Toyota engineers have been able to glean more than enough information from these valuable tools to design a few generations-worth of some of the safest cars on the road today. Even with all of the advanced testing technology available, there still have been some limitations during Toyota crash testing sessions.
Most American-made Cars
Toyota has one of the largest bases for manufacturing of any foreign automaker in the United States. The Toyota Camry and Toyota Sienna rank among the top of the Cars.com list for the Most American-Made Cars. To qualify for this list, a vehicle must not only be assembled in the U.S. by American workers, but a number of other functions must happen as well. Among the other considerations that factor into this index is how many parts considered “domestic” under federal law are used in the production of models like the Camry and Sienna. This is the first time in three years that Toyota is back on the Cars.com list. Toyota of Naperville couldn’t be happier with its manufacturing partner.
