Toyota’s Kentucky Plant Celebrates Production of Ninth-Generation Camry

Toyota’s longest-running U.S. vehicle manufacturing facility marked a significant milestone today as the ninth-generation Camry rolled off the assembly line for the first time. The 2025 Camry, powered exclusively with the fifth-generation Toyota Hybrid System, underscores Toyota’s commitment to electrification and sustainable mobility solutions.

“Today’s achievement is a testament to the dedication and skill of our team members,” said Kerry Creech, president of Toyota Kentucky. “Starting production of the new Camry reaffirms Toyota’s commitment to providing secure employment and investing in the future of our workforce.”

With more than 11 million Camrys assembled to date and over $10 billion invested in the plant and local communities, Toyota Kentucky has become synonymous with the popular sedan. This milestone not only reflects the Camry’s enduring popularity but also highlights Toyota’s commitment to long-term job stability and community development.

Markee Robinson, a production team leader, expressed gratitude for Toyota’s support over the years: “I feel blessed for the many years I have spent with Toyota and am proud of all the great things we have achieved. I am confident that Toyota will continue to provide job stability and secure employment for decades to come.”

Since 1988, when the first Kentucky-produced Camry hit the market, Toyota has continually innovated, with the new generation boasting a stylish design, enhanced power, fuel efficiency, and an improved driving experience.

Toyota’s recent $1.3 billion investment in the Georgetown facility underscores its commitment to electrification efforts, including the assembly of an all-new, three-row battery electric SUV for the U.S. market. This investment aligns with Toyota’s multi-path approach to provide customers with a range of electrified products tailored to their needs.

Gov. Andy Beshear commended Toyota’s commitment to its employees and the community: “Over the decades, Toyota has never wavered in its commitment to its employees and this community. They continue to find ways to renew this plant and provide future opportunity and stability for the nearly 10,000 Kentuckians who work here.”

Toyota Kentucky, a cornerstone of Toyota’s North American operations since 1986, remains dedicated to assembling some of the most beloved vehicles in the Toyota lineup, including the Camry, America’s best-selling passenger car for 22 consecutive years.
