TORRANCE, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2014) – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported January 2014 sales results of 146,365 units, a decrease of 7.2 percent from January 2013 on both a daily selling rate (DSR) and raw-volume basis.
Toyota division posted January 2014 sales of 128,728 units, down 9 percent year-over-year on both a DSR and raw-volume basis.

If you had to pick a theme for the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, performance would be a pretty logical choice. What else would you suggest, bankruptcy?
Yes, Detroit is coming close to overtaking Buffalo as the most depressing city in the U.S. But at least this year's show is chock-full of exciting vehicles. From concepts to production cars, there certainly wasn't a shortage of interesting metal.
One of the world's biggest auto shows this year's Detroit Auto Show promises major debuts including the latest Corvette Z06, Lexus RC-F, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis, BMW 2 Series, M4, Acura TLX, 2015 Honda Fit, a Kia sports car concept, the next-generation Chrysler 200 and the GMC Colorado.
