2021 Toyota GR Supra Gets 47 More HP and A New 4-Cylinder Version

The 2021 GR Supra 3.0 is now developing 382 hp, a 47-horsepower boost over last year’s car. A new 4-cylinder 2.0 version is also added.

  • 2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 horsepower increases by 47 for a total of 382 hp;
  • A new 2.0L turbo version is also being added to the lineup;
  • The A91 Edition will be limited to 1000 copies.

Toyota USA chose the Daytona International Speedway to announce the 2021 GR Supra today. Why? Because that’s where the Toyota-powered and sponsored AAR Eagle Mk. III GTP won the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1993. Not only that, the same car set a 1:33.875 lap record that stood until 2019. So, for Toyota, there was no other place to unveil the next episode in the Supra story.

Here we are with the 2021 Toyota GR Supra. What’s new for this year? Quite a lot actually.

First off, the 2021 GR Supra is still powered by the straight-6-cylinder twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-litre engine but gets a nice power boost of 47 horsepower for a total of 382. A very slight increase in torque makes the engine go from 365 to 368 lb-ft. The engine is this mated to the same 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. With the new output, the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 will be able to reach 60 mph from a standstill in 3.9 seconds, an improvement of .02 second over the 2020 model year.

Another surprise for 2021 is a revised chassis tuning. Even if the car didn’t need much improvement in that department, Toyota still did it anyway in their reach to perfection. They added lightweight aluminum braces and revised programming for the electric power steering (EPS), Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), among other things.

For 2021 a new special edition makes its way into the GR Supra line-up, the A91 Edition. Limited to 1,000 copies, this special edition features a rear black carbon fibre lip spoiler, matte black wheels, C-pillar graphics and carbon fibre mirror caps and will be available in two colours, Nocturnal or Refraction. Inside, the A91 Edition showcases a black Alcantara leather-trimmed interior with blue contrast as well as two exclusive key gloves and trunk mat.

The biggest addition to the 2021 GR Supra lineup is without a doubt the new GR Supra 2.0, the first-ever four-cylinder version. The engine of choice is a 2.0L inline four-cylinder with twin-scroll single turbo developing 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Japanese manufacturer projects 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds, thanks, in part, to being more than 200 pounds lighter than the Supra 3.0.
