  • 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

    Toyota must be pretty proud of its reworked TRD Pro family. That would explain why the automaker is ready to price the 2019 Tundra TRD Pro just $895 beneath the starting price of a Ford F-150 Raptor. The automaker already made it known that the 2019 4Runner TRD Pro would be priced higher than previous versions. This off-road ready SUV starts at $44,120. The half-ton full-size Tundra TRD Pro? Its now starts at $51,275, $3,800 more than it cost when it was last offered for the 2017 model year. By comparison, the Baja-ready Raptor starts at $52,170. Now, to be fair to Toyota, the 2019 Tundra TRD...

  • 2013 Lexus LS Body Kit by TRD

    This is the Toyota Racing Development take on the 2013 Lexus LS 460. While the LS itself is well-respected as a comfy and capable continent cruiser, and supposedly much enhanced for the new model year, we just can't quite get our minds around this body kit. It's not any one thing, exactly, but rather the confluence of it all. The stately, elegant, and somewhat under-the-radar look of the LS is gone, replaced with finny, fishy, flappy, fiddly bits in the form of a diffuser, front splitter, side skirts, forged aluminum wheels, and sport mufflers. It's a step above and beyond the LS F Sport...

    TRD GT 86 To Lead Toyota Offensive At 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon

  • 2011 Toyota Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series Concept

Toyota has rolled out a similar performance-themed pickup based on the Tacoma, which for now is only a concept but has already been confirmed for production. Described as a “pre-production” concept, which basically means the eventual production version will be almost identical, the new pickup was co-developed by Toyota’s motorsports and performance division Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and goes on sale late next spring. Named after Mexico's Baja California...
