Adviser says Toyota to still build SUVs in Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A consultant for Toyota says the automaker won't retool its plans to build Highlander sport utility vehicles at a plant under construction in north Mississippi, despite the trend of people seeking more fuel-efficient cars.

Dennis Cuneo says the Highlander is a car-based SUV and its sales remain strong.

Cuneo's comments came Monday after a news conference that Gov. Haley Barbour held to announce details about the University of Mississippi's Center for Manufacturing Excellence.

The center will provide Toyota and its suppliers with engineers, accountants, business managers and other professionals.
