Toyota Raising Prices In May

April 5, 2012

Toyota will be raising prices on several of its popular models beginning in May. The price hikes range from $150 to $250 and affect the following 6 models:

  1. Prius V
  2. Camry
  3. Camry Hybrid
  4. Highlander Hybrid
  5. Tacoma
  6. Scion tC

Price increases are common throughout the year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see other manufactuers raising prices as well. Car sales are back to pre-recession levels and inventory levels remain low, which means manufacturers will be trying to squeeze some extra profits out of their vehicles.

These price increases will affect vehicles produced beginning in May, which means all current vehicles will still have the lower prices, saving you a little extra money if you purchase this month.

Here's a full break-down of the price hikes:
