2014 Highlander dashThe completely redesigned 2014 Toyota Highlander has officially entered production, and as exciting as that is for the Japanese automaker, it’s even more exciting for the Princeton, Indiana, community, which is benefiting from 600 new jobs to aid in production.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana (TMMI) received a $430 million investment in order to craft the all-new 2014 Highlander.  The enhanced facilities will house the popular midsize SUV, as well as new employees of the Hoosier state who are excited to get to work.“Automotive manufacturers and suppliers around Indiana are putting their expansion plans into gear, creating jobs and more opportunities in every corner of the state,” said Indiana Lieutenant Governor, Sue Ellspermann, in a press release. “With Toyota’s launch of production for the new Highlander right here in the Hoosier State, we are witnessing an economy driving forward. From our world-class workforce to our low cost of doing business, Indiana proves daily that it is a state that works for automotive manufacturing.”

TMMI will also be responsible for the 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid production, which will be manufactured early next year.
