The TZD was tres zenith diesel, ie, it was the best specced diesel you could buy in britain.
Have no idea what the X was for in TXD. Perhaps tres xenaphobic diesel???
TR will approximate to other marques GL. Whereas GL stands for Grand Luxe (Great Luxury) and TR stands for Tres Riche (Very Rich), both refer to the level of fitments and supposedly go to a lower level on models without the prefix G or T. Direct comparisons for level of fit though can only be made for the same model year as manufacturers will also upgrade the fit level of lower badges as the model gets longer in the tooth.
