TRD Pro Series Test Drive Tundra 4Runner Tacoma | TCT MagazineLadies and Gentlemen, we are here to introduce you to the TRD-PRO series of the 4-Runner, Tacoma, and Tundra vehicles.  This is something that to my knowledge no manufacturer has ever done: release an entire family of very special vehicles all at the same time. 

The creators of the TRD-PRO wanted us to share with you part of their inspiration; Waku-Doki, this is a Japanese expression that translates to – “Heart Pumping, Adrenaline Racing”.  It can’t be easy for a manufacturer to get a product, much less three, to market that can get your heart pumping or your adrenaline racing AND make it past the lawyers and bean counters at the same time.  Everyone knows that Toyota’s mechanical dependability is unmatched throughout the industry and, with the TRD Pro trucks it’s seems that they just might be listening to us consumers as well.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Toyota Hilux Global PlatformWith the Toyota Tacoma very much long in the tooth (it's been 10 years since the 2nd generation came out), and rumors of a "global" Toyota Truck platform still circulating, this really could be what the 3rd generation Tacoma / Hilux pickup looks like.

Toyota-moving-to-texasIt was rumored last week, and today Toyota Motor Sales (TMS) Made it official: The new home for Toyota USA Corporte HQ will be Plano, TX.

Toyota Motor Sales USA announced today via Press release that by the end of 2017, over 4,000 employees from around the United States will be affected by the move.

Citing better efficiency, quicker decision making, and increased innovation, Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz says he's excited for the move, which will be the first time in it's history Toyota HQ will not operate out of Southern California.

The new environmentally friendly mega-campus in Plano is expected to open in late 2016 or early 2017, once ground is broken on the facility. Construction is expected to start later this year.

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) is one notable exception from this move; according to the press release TRD operations are not impacted by the relocation at this time.

Redline Land Cruisers from Colorado Springs has announced that they will begin production on custom 4-Door FJ-40 Land Cruiser bodies built on an 80 Series Land Cruiser chassis.


The all-new way of getting your entire family into a classic Land Cruiser will be a first for normal people. While the 4-Door model has been available from custom builder Icon in the past, Redline will be the first to offer this model for under $50k. Priced at $49,900 for their base model (which includes a donor 80 Series), the FJ-UTE offers passenger seating in the first, 2nd and optional 3rd row.

This week we have a great shot from Jonathan Harris from the 2013 Cruise Moab Event, while running the Kokopelli Trail.

Join Jonthan on the Kokopelli this year! Registration is open for Cruise Moab 2014.
