News Update – No TRD version for tC Scion
As reported in an earlier post, the tC Scion was said to be getting a TRD version but the Scion arm of Toyota America has weighed in with the news that the tC will only be as TRD as the customer would like…
This means that the car will be customizable according to individual tastes and needs, with a TRD catalog provided from which to choose performance upgrades.
According to Craig Taguchi from the Scion Public Relations office in California, buyers of the Scion tC will have the option to purchase each or all of the following upgrades:
- Lowering springs
- Front and rear sway bar kit
- Exhaust System
- Modified Intake
- Short shifter kit
- 19-inch wheels and tires
- TRD brake kit with cross drilled rotors (front)
The changes should make a substantial mechanical difference to the car but no word was given on whether these modifications will also include aesthetic upgrades.
7tune contacted Taguchi for details on the parts being included in the catalog, but no details were provided. Taguchi did mention that pricing for the Scion tC parts catalog will be coming out within the next week, so expect some more news shortly.
