Toyota Discontinues TRD Supercharger Program

Toyota is discontinuing its support for the TRD Supercharger program.

In a bulletin sent to its parts and service managers at Toyota dealerships nationwide, the Japanese automaker stated that it will no longer support the TRD Supercharger effective with the 2016 model year. According to Toyota, all current inventories of TRD Superchargers and associated components will be sold down to zero stock levels and will no longer be offered for sale once all those units are gone. As a result, each dealer will be limited to a maximum purchase quantity of five TRD Superchargers and five each of any of the related parts until June 30, 2015. After that date, dealers will be able to order any remaining Supercharger part numbers without limitations.

Service Placement Parts and technical support for past models equipped with the TRD Superchargers will continue to be available for at least 10 years, although no ECM calibrations will be made available for any future model year vehicles, beginning with 2016.

Toyota will discontinue the Supercharger kits for the 5.7-liter V8 Tundra, 5.7-liter V8 Sequoia, 4.0-liter V6 Tacoma, 4.0-liter V6 FJ Cruise, 3.4-liter V6 5VZ-FE engine and the 4.5-liter inline-six 1FZ engine.

    I’m looking to buy a new truck to replace my ’01 Taco (w/ TRD supercharger) early next year. I was leaning towards a Tundra w/ TRD supercharger.

    This move by Toyota might just be the final push for me to go with something else.
