NewsToyota's TRD Line Isn't Going Anywhere Despite Rumors to the Contrary
2020 Toyota Supra first drive review: More reset than reboot
While you're waiting for a review of the production Supra, we're here to whet your whistle with an in-depth prototype drive of Toyota's Super Bowl ad star.
Ever sinceintroduced in Europe and in Japan, we've heard rumors that GR could find its way into the U.S. in some form. Toyota's decision to officially call the Supra the GR Supra only added fuel to the rumor mill. In fact, following the Detroit auto show, we heard that TRD might even go away and be completely replaced by GR. But thanks to a conversation we had at the Chicago auto show, we can confirm that TRD is here to stay.
While speaking with Jack Hollis, general manager of the Toyota brand in North America, we asked how TRD and GR were going to work together. Would GR eventually replace TRD? In response, Hollis said, "Think of GR as a global branding. It's really Akio Toyoda's own personal brand that he started back a ways [with the] Gazoo Racing team. That was really more of the global. For North America and specifically for the U.S., TRD has been our brand. So you're going to continue to see the GR name more globally. TRD locally. And TRD is our passion. We're going to continue to grow TRD [brand]."

The TRD Off-Road is not the full-on TRD Pro we wanted, but we're here for it either way.
So there you have it. Unless Toyota makes some major changes to the way it does things, TRD isn't going anywhere. GR will continue to be a thing overseas, but even racing will continue under the TRD brand in the U.S. "Whether it's racing in NASCAR or any of our motorsports, it's all TRD," he concluded.
