Toyota also knows how to work with GM and the UAW in an area with high labor prices as evidenced by the highly successful NUMI operation in Fremont California. http://www.nummi.com/home.html Renault, OTOH, looked like a case of "This isn't working so lets try some other random thing."

But the positive for Toyota, is they would have access to a real truck platform capable of actually doing something voactional.
Wow, Toyota would have a lot of work cut out for themselves if they want GM to be represented with a high caliber as their company.
