Toyota Australia introduced a TRD division in August 2007, with the supercharged Aurion V6, followed by a high-performance variant of the 4WD Hilux in April 2008. TRD was aimed to compete with local manufacturer in-house tuning shops. However, in December 2008 Toyota Australia announced it would be ceasing production of its TRD range. The decision took effect on 31 March 2009.
In 2015 Toyota teased fans with the Toyota 86 Blackline Special edition which came with TRD front and rear performance styling, and again with the release of TRD lowering springs and TRD Sway Bar set to increase the responsiveness of an already successful 86 sports car.
In 2017 Toyota Australia introduced TRD parts again with the HiLux SR5 with TRD sports pack special edition.
In 2019 Toyota Australia announced the end of TRD in Australia and launched Gazoo Racing Australia in line with the release of the GR Supra and rebranding the Toyota 86 Racing Series and are not shy about their ambition to introduce more GR vehicles & GR Parts.
