Toyota Supra TRD Concept Debuts On Japanese Parts Website

Considering the Toyota Supra was revealed to the world just a few weeks ago, it feels slightly premature for the manufacturer to start releasing special editions of the model. However, we’ve heard it’s important to strike while the iron is hot in business and the Supra is certainly operating well above room temperature. It would be […] The post Toyota Supra TRD Concept Debuts On Japanese Parts Website appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Mulls Corolla As the Next Performance Model in GR Lineup

Ten years ago, Toyota fielded a solid lineup of passenger vehicles that were about as exciting as lukewarm tap water. However, the company has since embarked on a quest to change its trajectory and spice things up. Phase one included revision to the firm’s design language. Phase two involved tapping into the brand’s performance heritage […] The post Toyota Mulls Corolla As the Next Performance Model in GR Lineup appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Prepares Product Offensive; TRD and AWD Are the Acronyms You Need to Know

The Camry and Avalon TRD sedans that appeared this month won’t be the last new Toyota variants worked over by the automaker’s racing arm. Toyota has a product offensive on the way and, while the effort will mainly be to update existing models, many of those vehicles stand to gain new sporting iterations — and […] The post Toyota Prepares Product Offensive; TRD and AWD Are the Acronyms You Need to Know appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

‘That Might Scare Some People At Stoplights’

“Win on Sunday, sell Camrys on Monday,” as the old saying goes. That’s what Toyota’s doing in the lead-up to this week’s debut of two vehicles you’ve waited patiently for. Nah, let’s be real. You’ve resided in a heightened state of suspense, nerves jangling, taking Ativan just to get a few hours of sleep, ever […] The post ‘That Might Scare Some People At Stoplights’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Sorry, Gazoo Racing Models Aren’t Coming to the United States

Toyota has been exceptionally vocal about its desire to spice up the brand and, for the most part, it has delivered. Expressive, sometimes polarizing, designs have begun populating its lineup as company president Akio Toyoda endlessly talks up the merit of sporting vehicles. While other chief executives focus solely on promoting mobility, he’s discussing the importance […] The post Sorry, Gazoo Racing Models Aren’t Coming to the United States appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Finally! Toyota Poised to Bestow Upon Us a TRD Camry … and an Avalon, Too

Frankly, you have to wonder what took them so long. With all of America crying out for big front-wheel drive sedans, especially ones with conservative pedigrees and visual upgrades to appeal (plead?) to the younger crowd, a move like this was long overdue. Yes, finally, Toyota appears ready to give us the Camry and Avalon […] The post Finally! Toyota Poised to Bestow Upon Us a TRD Camry … and an Avalon, Too appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2018 Toyota Sequoia TRD Sport Review

It’s never a good thing when you just finish driving a hot sedan like the Lexus LS 500 F Sport and then get into a bigger vehicle like the 2018 Toyota Sequoia. When we got behind the wheel of the large Sequoia SUV, we had to adjust our mindset to accommodate the larger vehicle’s driving dynamics. At first we pushed the gas pedal, expecting to fly past slower traffic like in the LS 500, but that didn’t happen. With that said, we will shift gears and take an objective look at the 2018 Toyota Se...

Toyota Drove the New Supra Around Goodwood, Did We Learn Anything?

While the returning Toyota Supra should be big news, the endless parade of teasers without any real information has left everyone feeling burned out.

Toyota’s Supra Strip Tease Is Starting to Get Really Frustrating

It’s understandable that an automaker would want to prolong the unveiling of a hotly anticipated model. After all, building suspense is essential when marketing a vehicle that’s exciting but lacks broad appeal. This is why Dodge was so fastidious in its debut of the Hellcat and Demon, parsing out just enough information to keep us […] The post Toyota’s Supra Strip Tease Is Starting to Get Really Frustrating appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota’s Supra Joins NASCAR; Reveal Date Announced for Production Model

Toyota made it clear it wants the returning Supra to have presence in motorsport when it unveiled the GR Racing Concept in March of this year.

While that still may be the case, Toyota recently announced that the Supra will […] The post Toyota’s Supra Joins NASCAR; Reveal Date Announced for Production Model appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mighty Like a (TRD) Pro: Toyota’s 2019 Off-roaders Hit the Gym

It’s leg day at the Toyota Athletic Center. As the Chicago Auto Show kicks off, Toyota has changes in store for its off-road TRD Pro lineup that should help drivers of the brawniest Tacomas, Tundras, and 4Runners keep their sunglasses perched on their nose while blasting through an arroyo.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Teased Ahead of Chicago Debut With Factory Snorkel

Dear God, Toyota is Building a Souped-up Prius

Toyota is attempting to morph itself into an edgier, bolder, and sexier brand — to varying degrees of success. However, much of the company’s makeover has been purely cosmetic. The exception is Gazoo Racing, the automaker’s motorsport division and new in-house performance arm behind Toyota’s GR-series passenger cars. Interestingly, Gazoo literally means “image” in Japanese and some of the upgraded […] The post Dear God, Toyota is Building a Souped-up Prius appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Road tripping with the 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

  Following the muddy launch of the TRD Pro models of Toyota’s Tundra and Tacoma, we headed to the Northern reaches of the Ottawa Valley for a week of work with a sweet Cement Grey Taco, with the DCS Appliances event trailer in tow.  That combined rig stirred up attention everywhere we went, so when a similar trip came onto the horizon recently, it only made sense to see how the big brother Tundra would fare. Last Fall, we put the Tundra TRD-Pro through its paces in the dirt in Ontario ski c...

Chicago 2017: Finally, More Excitement for the Exciting Toyota Sequoia and Tundra

It’s hard to go a day without overhearing people on the street whispering excitedly about the scandalous Toyota Sequoia. Okay, that statement is completely false, and no doubt part of the reason why Toyota saw fit to add an off-road-minded sport trim to its lightly refreshed full-size SUV for 2018. Ah, hell, why not add […] The post Chicago 2017: Finally, More Excitement for the Exciting Toyota Sequoia and Tundra appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A full week of work with the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

  As some readers know, BBQ has become a big part of my business over the past couple of years, with most of the events I host being somehow connected to the automotive world. We’ve had a few adventures along the way and when Canadian rally ace turned driver training advocate, Leo “Crazy Leo” Urlichich was looking for someone to conduct a week long food experiment in the woods of Northern Ontario, I jumped at the chance to challenge myself. The challenge was to head to the wilds of the Ottawa V...

Toyota Considers Welcoming Fun Back Into Its Fleet With New Performance Division

Toyota is pondering using its Gazoo Racing unit as a performance brand for future road cars, not unlike BMW’s M Division and Mercedes-AMG. The timing couldn’t be better, as it was really starting to seem like Toyota was intentionally trying to make itself the least-exciting brand in the world. The Supra had vanished in North […] The post Toyota Considers Welcoming Fun Back Into Its Fleet With New Performance Division appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota C-HR Imagined with TRD Kit

Now that it’s official the uber-cool Toyota C-HR is hitting the markets the world over with roughly the same design as the concept, it’s time for the rendering artists to break out their rendering tools and show us the crossover in different guises. The first to take up the challenge is X-Tomi Design with a TRD package. The Toyota C-HR TRD imagined in this speculative rendering is looking a little bit like a hatchback. But that’s not really the renderer’s fault. The inspiration for this car ...

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro’s sports a pretty hefty $41,700 price tag

2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Pricing & Specs

Toyota’s TRD Pro off-roaders have gained quite a reputation since their launch a few years back as rough and tumble pickups and SUVs that are also nice to live with. So when we weren’t at all surprised when they announced that the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is going to cost $40,760 for the manual and $42,760 for the Automatic. Now, forty grand might sound like a lot of money for a what’s essentially a mud plugger, but with the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro you get a whole lot more than a vehicl...

Originally appeared on Automoblog.net ( = || []).push({}); When it comes to trucks, the American made versions are hard to beat. Toyota’s Tundra pickup has an uphill battle to beat stiff competition from Ford, General Motors, and Ram. Each sell more than their Japanese counterpart but it hasn’t stopped Toyota from trying.
