The Manual Toyota Supra Will Come to America, Maybe as Soon as 2022

Toyota will bring the manual Supra to America for the 2023 model-year

  • Toyota had previously announced it could make a manual Supra, but it didn’t know if it would be profitable in America

  • A source from inside Toyota said that the Manual Supra is confirmed and it could arrive during the year

  • Despite earlier reports, the manual should be available on both engines

Since Toyota reintroduced the Supra, enthusiasts have lamented the absence of a manual transmission on the car’s option list.

It seems the Japanese automaker listened to these people, since a source inside the company revealed to The Drive that the manual Supra was confirmed for America.

The related BMW Z4 is only sold with an 8-speed automatic in America, so the Supra could distinguish itself there if the German company doesn’t follow suit.

Since Toyota hasn’t officially released this information yet, few details are known about the actual car, except that this gearbox will be available both on the 2.0L 4 cylinder and on the 3.0L 6-cylinder engines, despite early rumours that only the smaller engine could be paired with it.

The manual could also grace a higher performance version, the GRMN, that could use the same inline-six as the BMW M3, which would give it around 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.

A previous report indicated that this high-performance model would come exclusively with an automatic transmission, but this could change following this latest news.

The manual Supra should arrive on American shores in late 2022 or in early 2023, most likely as a 2023 model year option in either case.

Toyota Canada didn’t comment either, so it is difficult to tell if this option will be available north of the border.
