2020 Toyota Supra Could Get a Four-Cylinder Engine

Rumors are swirling about a four-cylinder 2020 Toyota Supra


The 2020 Toyota Supra was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show packing a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with 335 horsepower, but that may not be the only engine option on the redesigned Supra.

The California Air Resources Board has apparently certified a four-cylinder version of the all-new Supra. Automobile was the publication that picked up on the certification. A four-cylinder Supra with 194 horsepower or 255 horsepower will already be offered in Japan, but only rumors were available as to the four-cylinder situation in North America.

Priced at $64,990 in Canada and $49,990 in the US, the 2020 Toyota Supra has room for a more affordable version which would probably take about $10,000 on the six-cylinder Supra’s price. We’re thinking the four-cylinder coming here will be the one with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. We can’t imagine Toyota offering a sub 200-horsepower Supra here in North America.

That option will likely be kept for the Toyota 86 with the four-cylinder Supra acting as the perfect bridge with the more powerful six-cylinder Toyota Supra. A lighter four-banger will surely provide a more balanced car with more nimble handling and less understeer. Granted we haven’t driven the 2020 Supra yet, but a lighter engine is usually a good thing for handling.

  1. […] This clearly explains why the 2020 Toyota Supra is so quick but it’s also got us thinking that Toyota knows exactly what it got itself into when they signed on with BMW to cultivate the new Supra. More power than divulged could be only the first surprise. Toyota has “prepared” the car for tuners with fake-functional bits and more. They will certainly make use of these provisions and odds are that a manual gearbox will come as will a 4-cylinder option. […]
