  • We believe that mobility goes well beyond cars. With our eyes to the future, we're setting our sights on an even greater mission of mobility for all. ‘Start Your Impossible’ is our call to action to make that vision a reality and inspire people to push onward―past their finish line, past their impossible. Because when we're free to move, anything is possible.

  • Nearly sixty-one years ago, Toyota began its American journey with a single facility in southern California. What started as a single store in a Rambler dealership has evolved into an American institution that continues to bring jobs, mobility, and technology to its communities. Today, Toyota encompasses a presence in every state, including our North American headquarters in Plano, Texas, 10 manufacturing facilities (14 in North America), nearly 1,500 Toyota and Lexus dealerships and 136,000 direct, dealer and supplier U.S. employees. Across the country, our team members work together to help the company embark on the next leg of our American journey as we strive to lead the future of mobility and continue to improve our products and services for our customers.

  • At Toyota, we have a long-held commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, reflective of the communities where we live, work and play. Our commitment to diversity doesn’t stop within Toyota. Just last week, team members across the Toyota family raised $40,000 and joined more than 2,500 cyclists at AIDS/Lifecycle — a 7 day, 545 mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Our Team Toyota cyclists are proving that when we’re free to move, anything is possible.

  • Jim Lentz, our Toyota North America CEO, developed his leadership style from a lesson he learned early on in his career. "Early in my career at Toyota, [my] district sales manager pulled me aside and said I was too soft on people. He wanted me to change my style and to motivate people with an iron fist. He gave me an ultimatum, on Monday, I would have to commit to making the change or find a new job. On Monday morning, I told my manager I had to be who I was and I couldn’t change that. He gave me two weeks to find another job, which I did at our corporate headquarters in California. It was a demotion and I took a pay cut, but in the end, I made the right choice. To succeed in your career—or as a company—you have to stay true to yourself and your foundational values."
