Toyota GR Hilux trademarked, Malaysia debut likely?

Toyota has quietly registered the GR Hilux name in Australia, hinting that the company could be injecting its Gazoo Racing goodness into the Hilux. While Australia is no stranger to high-performance pick-up trucks (much of the Ford Ranger Raptor’s development work was done in Australia), could the GR Hilux find its way to Malaysia? After all, Toyota Malaysia is promoting the Gazoo Racing brand aggressively, which started with the Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Racing Festival back in 2017. Then there

Its name is not Supra, but Toyota GR Supra – What GR means for TRD?

The Toyota GR Supra is now here, priced from RM 568,000. Any discussion about the Toyota GR Supra will inevitably be overshadowed by debates about whether this BMW-Toyota jointly developed model can be a true successor to carry the legendary Supra nameplate, which is a shame because it takes the attention away from something that’s very important to anyone who cares about the brand that makes the Toyota GR Supra. The latest A90 generation Supra isn’t called the Toyota Supra but Toyota GR Supra.

Toyota, Subaru to announce new model on 5-Apr – Toyota GR 86 or Toyo-baru SUV?

Toyota and Subaru have just announced that they will unveil a new co-developed model in Japan on 5-April 2021. What could it be? Since Toyota Gazoo Racing is mentioned in the joint statement, we are more inclined to believe that it refers to the Toyota GR 86.
