2020 Toyota Supra Officially Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show

The last Toyota Supra happened 21 years ago. Now, after many leaks and many rumors, the second generation of Toyota’s most famous coupe is back.

The 2020 Toyota Supra was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show this morning, showing the same sleek design we’ve seen in every Supra image leaked in recent weeks.

Before we get into it, here’s what you probably want to know about the new 2020 Supra.

  • It has 335 horsepower coming from an inline six-cylinder engine.
  • It won’t have a manual gearbox, just an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
  • It has two seats.
  • It will feature an adaptive suspension and an active rear differential standard
  • We don’t know what it will cost yet.
  • It arrives in time for summer.

As expected, the rear-wheel drive 2020 Toyota Supra is powered by a BMW-sourced inline six-cylinder engine with a confirmed 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. Power gets to the two back wheels through an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

You’ll get paddle shifters but it’s not a dual-clutch gearbox. Getting to 60 mph will require 4.1 seconds.

It’s interesting to note that the new 2020 Toyota Supra doesn’t get the most powerful version of that 3.0-liter inline-six. That version goes to the BMW Z4 which will have 380 horsepower. Toyota may be keeping that engine for later.

The Supra will have a perfect 50:50 weight balance, an adaptive variable suspension which automatically adjusts damping forces in response to driver inputs and the road, and an active differential. The latter uses an electric motors and various multi-plate clutches to control lateral movements and forces.

Back to the active suspension, it will also feature two damping modes: Normal and Sport. Brembo calipers are also included.

All in all, Toyota seems to have put the emphasis on both straight-line acceleration and handling. A car that looks like the 2020 Supra needs to go fast on a winding road, and the new generation will certainly be able to do that.

It wouldn’t be a Toyota if it didn’t have a ton of active safety and driver assistance technologies.

Other features of the 2020 Toyota Supra include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist, automatic high beam and road sign assist. Additional active safety and convenience features are adaptive full speed cruise control, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and rear end collision warning.

The 2020 Toyota Supra arrives in the summer, and will be available in 7 exterior colors: Red, blue, silver, white, black, dark gray and matte gray
