Despite rumor to the contrary, Toyota says, the Tundra pickup will still be built in Indiana and in Texas.

The Wall Street Journal reported online that the Japanese automaker was considering a consolidation of Tundra production at the new Tundra plant in San Antonio, Texas. Right now the company also builds trucks in Princeton, Indiana.

Toyota has cut production of the Tundra, but it's still among the 20 best-selling vehicles in the U.S. The company issued a statement today that said it has no plans to move the Tundra out of its Gibson Cty., Indiana factory. Toyota said in a release that the "speculation was driven by the current automotive market downturn."

PickupTruck.com says Toyota can build 200,000 Tundras each year in Texas, with another 100,000 from the Indiana plant.
