In October of 1967 Triumph introduced the TR250 and the T5 and went on sale a year later. In many regards, the TR5 and TR250 were similar to the vehicle they were replacing, the TR4A. The main difference was under the hood which now featured a 2.5 liter six-cylinder engine replacing the well-proven two-liter four-cylinder unit. The TR250 was named 250 due to its engine capacity of 2.5 liters or 2500 cc.The TR5 and TR250 were very similar vehicles. The TR5 was the European version while the TR250 was the exported United States version. The TR5 featured a Lucas fuel injection system which, unfortunately, did not comply with strict United States federal safety and emission regulations. To modify the fuel-injection system was costly, so a dual Stromberg carburetor was attached and the TR250 was created. The other alternative was to not offer the vehicle in the United States. With the introduction of the six-cylinder engine in the TR series, the Triumph management saw much opportunity. Their marketing slogan that year read Triumph over Conformity. Due to the use of carburetion, horsepower was just over 100 and as a result, the performance was modest. Disc brakes were standard equipment which provided excellent stopping power.The TR5/TR250 continued the heritage established by the TR2. Sales continued to be strong in the United States for the small, simple, reliable and pure sports car. 1967-1968 were the only years Triumph produced the vehicle.
