Brock Purdy is going places with the help of Toyota.

On Friday morning, Toyota Motor North America announced the 49ers quarterback and Eli Manning have been named national partners with the car brand.

Purdy could previously be seen in Toyota’s regional advertising.

“Our relationship with both Eli and Brock began at the regional marketing level and now we’re proud to have them both along for the ride as national partners,” Michael Tripp, group vice president, Toyota division marketing, said in a press release.

Brock Purdy’s inclusion in national advertising for Toyota is another cherry on top of the sundae that’s been his rise in the NFL. The 49ers quarterback matches Toyota’s slogan, “Let’s go places.” After being picked last in the 2022 NFL Draft, the 24-year-old gunslinger has been named to his first Pro Bowl and is an MVP finalist, all within the span of two seasons.

In his first full season as San Francisco’s quarterback, Purdy threw 31 touchdowns for 4,280 yards.

Key dates for Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers

  • Sunday, Feb. 11th – Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas
  • Tuesday, Feb. 20th – Teams can begin franchising players until Tuesday, March 5th
  • Tuesday, Feb. 27 – NFL Combine begins
