TRD is just the follow the crowd sort of acronym that all the other companies are doing, likely because some focus group told them that people identify with it. So TRD, SRT, M, S, SVT, and so on. If Toyota really wanted to be unique (which they don't) what they would do is just call it "Off Road". So for instance a special edition Tundra that had a beefed up suspension, big meaty off road tires and wheels and super strong diffs would just be referred to as the "Off Road" package instead or TRD Pro or some silly shit like that. Tundra "Off Road" edition.



When this baby hits 88 miles an hour, you're gonna see some serious sh*t.

They already have that. Tundra and Tacoma TRD Off Road editions normally feature items like Bilstein suspension, BFG tires, and locking differentials not found on non off road models.

My Toyota List:

1982 Corolla SR-5 1JZGTE M/T
1988 Cressida 5MGE A/T (1JZ Swap Coming)
2005 Corolla CE 1ZZFE M/T
2005 Sequoia Limited 2UZFE A/T

Can't wait to see the Tundra at the debut. I'm wondering if its just going to be a Rock Warrior TRD package for the new body Tundra. The Rock Warrior package brought fake beadlock TRD rims, all emblems gone except the front T and 5.7l V8 side badge, stickers that say "Rock Warriod TRD Toyota Racing Development" and then chrome delete via color matched front bumper, color matched grille surround, and black rear bumper.

For the new TRD Pro Tundra, I would be happy with some debadging, maybe some new cool looking TRD rims, and chrome delete via same color matching front bumper, grille surround, and black rear bumper. I like how TOYOTA is written out on the grille. I'd probably buy it in a year or two. IMO the new body Tundra has wayyyy to much chrome. Unless you get the Limited.

Hopefully its priced similar to the way the Rock Warrior's were priced, which was extremely reasonably priced. So with the TRD package already having Bilsteins and such, the Rock Warrior package was basically an appearance package. I'm OK if thats all the TRD Pro is for the new Tundra.

But it would be even better if they actually put new coilovers in it with external reservoirs, power boost (won't happen), etc. to compete with the Raptor, but I don't see it happening.

Can't wait for the debut.

2016 Tundra - DC | Limited | TRD | 5.7 | 4x4 | Lux Pack | Ceramic Tint | Husky X-Act Contour | AMP PowerSteps | TRD Sway Bar | TRD Exhaust
