Southern California Toyota Dealers are plentiful throughout the region. If you live here, then you know where to find one or several.
So, getting a great deal while buying or leasing a new Toyota in Southern California should be easy. But you still have to do your homework.
And you can consider this article your own personal cheat sheet. :0)
Southern California Toyota Dealer Territory
First, let’s define Southern California. Because the region is a bit different for everyone. But for our purpose, it’s to help you find the best SoCal Toyota Dealership to buy or lease from.
To that end, we include a wide radius. Of course, there’s Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Plus San Diego County and the Inland Empire Counties – San Bernardino and Riverside.
But also, include Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Kern Counties. Further, we add Kings, Madera and Tulare Counties.
And, we’re including Clark County, Nevada, and Mohave County, Arizona.
Why So Many Toyota Dealerships?
First, there are lots of Toyota Dealerships in Southern California because SoCal drivers buy a lot of Toyotas!
Also, we’re grouping these dealerships into Southern California Toyota Dealers for a simple reason.
When we buy our cars, they represent the second most expensive item you’ll ever buy. Next to your house – for most of us anyway.
So the more options you have the better for you to get your best deal. Of course, you don’t have to shop all 82 Toyota Dealerships.
But depending on where you are in SoCal, you’re sure to find a handful to buy or lease a Toyota from.
About Toyota The Brand
The Toyota brand has a long and rich history. And that’s here in the United States and globally.
In fact, Toyota and Volkswagen always compete for the top-selling carmaker crown.
Toyota has always focused on practical cars, trucks, crossover/SUVs, and minivans. Affordable, dependable, and long-lasting.
Conversely, Toyota’s luxury sibling is Lexus. And it has its own dealerships. Southern California Lexus Dealers are entirely separate from Toyota dealerships.
Toyota Image And Resale Value
Toyota’s line-up focuses on sensible transportation. So the brand’s image is like rival Japanese carmaker Honda’s.
But Toyota’s line-up gives the brand image an edge with its variety of trucks and SUVs. Including some that are off-road-ready.
So, Toyota’s are practical vehicles and there are lots of them on the road. And that would suggest they don’t hold their resale value well.
But that’s not the case. For example; many Toyota cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans rank high on resale value rating lists.
That’s due to Toyotas being reliable and easy to maintain. Because not much goes wrong with them.
Vehicles Sold By SoCal Toyota Dealers
Southern California Toyota Dealers have an advantage. And it’s due to the range of vehicles they sell.
Because no other automaker offers as complete a line-up as Toyota. That includes cars, crossover SUVs, trucks, minivans, hybrids, and electric vehicles.
Toyota Vehicles In Production
So here’s a complete list of Toyota vehicles currently in production. And notice there’s something in every non-luxury category.
An intense critic might argue Toyota is lacking a small truck. Because Ford is now offering one. But that’s the extent of criticism about Toyota’s variety of vehicles it offers.

Southern California Toyota Dealers By County
Below you will find all 82 of the Southern California Toyota Dealers listed by county. And each listing links to that dealership’s website.
But along with that information is another element of equal importance. In fact, this extra bit of info might be of greater importance. And that is who owns each SoCal Toyota Dealership!
