When I was in Panama, I made a count of car makes during a half-hour bus ride. I think some of the results are relevant:
91 Cars surveyed, trucks, sedans, busses, you name it.
etcetera. Misc Mazda, Acura, Isuzu, BMW, and Cheverolet
See that bolded number? There were twice as many Toyotas on the road as any other single make.
The numbers in trucks were even more lopsided. I didn't count, but I'd guess 90% of the pickups were new-ish Hiluxes. Maybe a few Nissan. And if you saw a Chevy or Ford, you were practically assured that it said ACP on the side.
Moral: The US doesn't properly appreciate Toyotas. Therefore, we don't get the HiLux or HiAce nowadays, and those we have remaining go to places that do.
