The 2022 Toyota GR86 Is Lightyears Ahead of its Predecessor

The 2022 Toyota GR86 isn’t turbocharged, but it’s still pretty damn good

Following the reveal of the global Toyota GR86

Toyota has finally revealed the U.S.-spec Toyota GR86, confirming drastic improvements

The new GR86 doesn’t come with a turbocharged engine

But it does feature a 2.4-liter that’s good for 228 HP and 194 LB-FT

Which is a 23 HP and 28 LB-FT improvement over the outgoing model’s max output of 205 HP and 156 LB-FT

A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but you can opt for a six-speed auto if you like

Both will send power exclusively to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential

The roof and fenders are made from lightweight aluminum and, along with other minor changes

Toyota has managed to keep roughly the same curb weight at “just over 2,800 pounds”

Because of its lightweight nature and the increased power output

The GR86 brings some pretty serious on-road performance gains

The GR86 can hit 60 mph in 6.1 seconds (MT) or 6.6 seconds (AT)

Which makes it 0.9- amd 1.4-seconds faster, respectively

The new GR86 rides an on improved version of the same platform

But it has be equipped with new front and rear subframe reinforcements to improve structural rigidity

Other mild updates to the chassis should help further decrease body roll, improve handling, and improve general comfort on the road.

The interior has also seen some improvements

Including the 7-inch digital instrument cluster

And the eight-inch infotainment system

Even the seats have been updated with bigger bolsters for more support in bends

The Premium trim level even includes Alcantara upholstery

And leather accents throughout the cabin.

Pricing is expected to start below $30,000, but Toyota has yet to reveal official pricing
