Toyota TRD Series: What Is It?

Jun 10, 2024

What is Toyota TRD?

TRD stands for ‘Toyota Racing Development.’ This is Toyota’s in-house racing specialty division and is responsible for all things racing. The racing world is a huge pillar in the automotive industry and Toyota is no slouch when it comes to fine-tuning and developing a reputation of service and racing performance for its fans and car owners around the world.

TRD is where all the magic happens. It’s ground zero when it comes to developing high-performance TRD parts and accessories so that you can make your Toyota look faster, go faster, and go where others fear to tread.

History: How TRD Began

In the 1960s, Toyota’s motorsports division was known as the Toyota Sports Corner (TOSCO). Believe it or not, they created the first turbo race car called the Toyota 7. When it came to winning races and collecting trophies, the Corolla 1600 was a top performer and was the first winner of the World Rally Championship.

The racing bug took over at Toyota, and in 1979 the company amped up efforts to build a global image as a winner in the racing world while also developing performance accessories for drivers and car owners alike. With that, TRD was born.

How time flies! Over the decades we saw world-class racers win world-renowned races. Ivan Stewart, known as the ‘Ironman’ for winning gruelling off-road competitions and mastering desert racing, dominated the 80s and 90s.

By then, fans knew TRD was building parts that increased the level of performance for Toyota Cars.

In 1997, Toyota introduced a TRD off-road package for the Tacoma in 1997 and truck lovers haven’t looked back since.

Back on the racing circuit, 9 Tundra drivers won NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series. In fact, the 2000s were all about Nascar. 3 years after joining the American competition, driver Robert Huffman won the podium place for Toyota and the rest was history.

Fast forward to the 2010s, where Toyota made its mark in endurance racing with a hybrid car. The four-wheel-drive Supra HV-R was the first hybrid to win the ‘Tokachi 24 hours.’

Meanwhile, the legion of Toyota truck enthusiasts were able to upgrade to the TRD Pro series model for Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner for the first time.
