6. Toyota is just getting started
New models are the water of life for the car business, and Toyota has them by the gallon. By the end of 2013, Toyota will introduce redesigned versions of the Toyota RAV4, Tacoma, Highlander, Avalon, Corolla, and Sequoia -- as well as the Lexus ES and LS and Scion xB and xD. As Polk's Libby points out, "It might be easier to just list the models which are not being redesigned." Ford's big news this year is limited to Escape and Fusion.
