New Toyota TRD Models on the Way

April 1st, 2019 by

When it comes to Toyota, TRD means rough, it means tough, it means stylish, and it means awesome. The Toyota Racing Development segment has been making history with win after win since 1954. Vehicles in this division are unique and reserved for Clermont Toyota races both on and off the track. In honor of the racing heritage of Toyota, TRD models have been created and can usually be found on our lot at Toyota of Clermont. These special trim levels can have different engineering or aesthetic modifications, depending on the TRD model you select. While we currently have TRD models for the Clermont Toyota Tundra, 4Runner, and Tacoma, there are several announced models that are soon to arrive at the dealership. Here’s what we know so far!
