TRD edition added to 86 lineup in the US

Riley Riley

Toyota has just added a TRD special edition of the best selling 86 sports coupe in the United States.

The TRD becomes North America’s highest performance 86 thanks to the addition of some new bits:

  • SACHS dampers, 12.8-/12.4-inch
  • Brembo brakes front and rear
  • 18 x 7.5-inch alloys wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres (sized 215/40R18 85Y all around)

The SACHS dampers further sharpen the 86’s steering response and refine vehicle stability.

Extra-large four-piston front, two-piston rear Brembo brakes composedly cull speed at a moment’s notice, and enrich the 86’s well-balanced cornering prowess.

Its Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tyres turn up the grip factor while aiding steering reactiveness and boosting tactility communicated through its small-diameter steering wheel.

Exclusively painted in Raven, and accented by a classic TRD tricolor graphic and TRD body kit (which includes front bumper, side sills, rear bumper/diffuser, and spoiler), the TRD Special Edition looks athletic too.

Also standard is a TRD exhaust with brushed stainless steel tips.

Opening the doors reveals a new red and black-trimmed reach adjust steering wheel with red contrast stitching; red and black sport bucket seats with side bolsters; Granlux suede-like covering atop the instrument cluster; “TRD” logo embroidered on passenger side instrument panel; red contrast stitching throughout; and red seatbelts.

Production will be limited to only 1418 units, with a suggested retail price of US$32,420.
