2021 GR Supra will be offered in both 2.0 and 3.0 versions
The Toyota GR Supra 2.0 features the first-ever four-cylinder engine in a Supra
GR Supra 2.0 will start at $42,990 in the US while the GR Supra 3.0 starts at $50,990
As expected, the 2021 Toyota Supra will get a new 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, a special A91 edition, a standard 8-inch central display screen, and more power in the 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine. A lot of what was announced today we already knew, but now we have a price for each new Supra.
Let’s start with the biggest news regarding the 2021 Toyota Supra, the addition of a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Dubbed the GR Supra 2.0, the model will send 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. Toyota says the four-cylinder turbo Supra will reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.0 seconds. As expected, the four-cylinder turbo Supra will be quite a bit lighter than the inline-six model, weighing in at 200 pounds less than the Supra 3.0.
Part of the weight savings comes from the fact that the 2.0 doesn’t have Active Differential and the Adaptive Suspension of the Supra 3.0. It also has manually adjustable seats as opposed to 14-way power seats in the more powerful Supra. Still, the Supra 2.0 is meant as a bridge between the Toyota 86 and the inline-six Supra, and puts the focus on agility while still offering very decent power.
The 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 will start at $42,990 in the US. Pricing in Canada hasn’t been confirmed. We reached out to Toyota Canada this morning and we will get back to you as soon as we hear back.
As for the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0, it gets quite the bump in power this year. The 3.0-litre, inline-six turbo engine now delivers 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. The current Supra gets 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque from the same engine. That means the 2021 Supra will reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds as opposed to 4.1 seconds for the current model.
Despite having 47 more ponies under the hood, the new 3.0 model will start at just $500 more than the current Supra. The starting price is set at $50,990 for the GR Supra 3.0 in the US. Nothing has been confirmed for Canada yet.
The new Toyota Supra A91 Special Edition follows in the footsteps of last year’s Launch Editions. It will come in two colors called Nocturnal and Refraction, the latter being exclusive to the special edition. The special edition gets matte black wheels, c-pillar graphics, carbon fiber mirror caps and carbon fiber rear lip spoiler. The interior is Alcantara and leather with blue contrasts.
A new safety and technology package will be available that includes:
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (Full speed)
- Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
- Parking Sensors with Emergency Braking Function
- 12-speaker 500-watt JBL Audio System
- Wireless Apple CarPlay® compatible (iOS only)
- Supra Connected Services: up to four-year trial includes Remote Services, Remote Maintenance, Automatic Emergency Call, Real Time Traffic Information, Concierge, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and Map Updates.
And so there you have it. The Supra finally gets a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will surely attract a ton of attention but we knew that already. There’s plenty of performance in either version of the 2021 Supra, and now we know how much each will cost.
