All-New 2022 Toyota 86 To Debut On June 2nd

The final production version of the all-new sporty 2022 Toyota 86 should please even more driving enthusiasts


  • The 2nd generation 86 will get more power.

  • The full redesign coincides with the recent release of the new Subaru BRZ.


For nearly a decade, the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86/Scion FR-S has answered the needs of true driving enthusiasts with an honest and rewarding driving experience. The complaints revolving around these cars have generally been limited to the amount of power available on hand. On June 2nd, all will be revealed.

Well, as we already know, Subaru and Toyota have swapped out the horizontally-opposed 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine and replaced it with an equally naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre unit. The latter produces 228 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque – the extra twisting power should make for an even more entertaining drive.

5 Questions Answered About The 2022 Subaru BRZ

The 86’s sheet metal should differ somewhat from the Subaru’s however both will undeniably be siblings. Because of this, we expect the 86, as the BRZ, will be slightly longer and lower but no wider than the outgoing car. The new 86 (or GT 86) shouldn’t be much heavier than the old meaning that it will be far quicker, possibly by more than a second to 100km/h from a standstill.

Toyota invites everyone to follow them on Twitter to learn more and join them on June 2 at 10 a.m. EDT to find out: livestream link.
