Toyota revealed the TRD editions of the Land Cruiser 200, Camry and the Corolla at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas.
According to the Japanese automaker, the said vehicles are designed to “inspire the imagination of industry professionals and consumers alike.” Toyota adds that the TRD editions of the Camry and the Corolla have been modified to look sportier and to deliver more responsive handling.

The recently refreshed 2016 Land Cruiser gets an air snorkel, notch bar with an integrated LED light-bar and LED projector headlights. Over to the side, it gets large 20-inch TRD performance wheels wrapped in 285/55 off-road tires and tubular running boards. Chassis-wise, Toyota fitted the special edition LC200 with a two-inch lift kit, adjustable front and rear coilover dampers and retuned springs for off-roading.
