Track-tested, pro-driver approved, a all-new 2022 GR 86 earns a Gazoo Racing badge
Responsive, and light weight 2+2 sports coupe designed by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts
Increased rigidity, some-more energy and torque, aerodynamic physique elements, and new interior
2.4L flat-four fighter engine hits rise torque during reduce RPMs, giving a feel of some-more linear acceleration
TORONTO, Ontario – Jun 2, 2021 – The automobile that noted a reconstruction of Toyota’s sportscar origin is now giving drivers even some-more of a agility, style, and responsiveness they desire. For this round, a detail-obsessed Toyota Gazoo Racing group brings extended doing and extraneous aerodynamics, augmenting power, and an upgraded interior. These changes acquire it a Gazoo Racing badge, fasten Toyota’s ever-growing, tellurian sportscar line as a all-new 2022 GR 86.
With a far-reaching position and low centre of gravity, a 2+2 rear-wheel expostulate coupe’s doing changes come in a form of front and back support reinforcements that boost rigidity. Functional extraneous atmosphere vents were also combined to serve support steering stability. Weight shred sum like aluminum roof panels and fenders also kept it during a nimble quell weight of usually over 1,270 kg.
The 2.4L naturally aspirated, horizontally against four-cylinder fighter engine, brings a energy ascent – augmenting from 205 to 228hp and from 156 to 184 lb.-ft. of torque on a primer version. The energy boost come from tweaks like augmenting gimlet size, changes to a intake and empty systems, and optimization of a Toyota D-4S twin injection technology. Drivers will have a choice of a 6-speed primer (MT) or involuntary delivery (AT).
0 to 100 km/h times have forsaken from 7.2 to 6.3 seconds for a MT and from 8.2 to 6.8 seconds for a AT.
Available in dual grades, GR 86 and GR 86 Premium, it will come in 7 extraneous colour choices, including a aptly named Track bRed. The reward class comes versed with a back duckbill spoiler, adding energetic contours to a car’s sporty feel.

Additional interior upgrades embody a three-mode digital display, charity opposite information layouts for Normal, Sport, or Track pushing modes. An 8-inch Multimedia Touchscreen with 6 speakers comes on a customary grade, while an eight-speaker complement comes customary on a Premium grade, and accessible Connected Services, Apple CarPlay® Android Auto™ compatibility.
Iconic Sportscar Design…Tweaked in a GR Garage
When a 86/Scion FR-S was introduced in 2012, Akio Toyoda’s aim was to re-capture a suggestion of Toyota’s famed sports automobile from a 1980s and ‘90s. With a name in reverence to a mid-1980s AE86 famous in Japan as a “hachi-roku” (meaning 8-6) and famous in North America as a Toyota Corolla GT-S, a 86/FR-S was grown to give sportscar purists an affordable, agile, rear-drive sports coupe.
The new era GR 86 takes cues from a “hachi-roku” forefather. Its low altogether tallness and hip indicate give it an jaunty look. The buffer tops extend horizontally to a beltline and give it a position particular of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sportscars. Its low, plane underbody and narrowed back cabin mix to emanate a launch-ready appearance. Colour choices embody Track bRed, Trueno Blue, Neptune Blue, Halo White, Steel Grey, Pavement Grey, and Raven Black
The pierce from a 2.0L to a 2.4L engine has augmenting banishment scarcely 20%, from 1,998 cc to 2,387 cc. Thanks to that increase, GR 86 now has 228 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of rise torque, that it now hits during 3,700 rpm, a prior era strike max torque during 6,600 rpm.
The result? The all-new GR 86 now delivers linear acceleration opposite a wider rope of rpms, delivering a longer swell to drivers.
The front of a automobile comforts a GR-specific Functional MATRIX “G Mesh” Grille, that fuses opening and expressiveness. Its bony LED headlights enrich a aerodynamic front aim dams and vents, with side sill spoilers to support steering responsiveness and stability. And those vents? Well, we’ve place ducts in a front fender and wheelhouse, so atmosphere that’s prompted while pushing is distributed to a wheelhouse and inside bumper, shortening atmosphere stagnation.
Additional “Hachi-roku” desirous elements take a form of a Torsen® limited-slip back differential and RWD platform. With easy-to-control fortitude from a sport-tuned eccentric MacPherson® strut front and double wishbone back suspension.
Mountain-road-ready interlude energy is delivered by 295 and 290 mm vented front and back brakes, and corner-chewing reason entrance from Michelin Primacy HP® tires on 17-inch wheels on a GR 86, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4® tires aboard fake black 18-inch wheels on a Premium grade.
The Art Science of “86-ness”
The sorcery of a classical AE-86 was in a famously manageable doing and throttle.
For a new GR 86, a pattern of a Boxer-4 allows for offset maneuverability. The plane cylinders minister to altogether automobile weight control and concede for ultra-low chain in a engine bay, giving a automobile a justified certainty during a quell weight of usually over 1,270 kg.
The 2.4L engine’s gimlet and cadence measure have augmenting from 86 mm x 86 mm to 94 mm x 86 mm, and banishment is adult from 1,998 cc to 2,387 cc. The engine retains a Toyota-innovated D-4S Dual Injection record system, that combines approach fuel injection and port-injection technologies, while a pier injection and in-cylinder injection have been optimized. The direct-injection complement provides a cooling outcome in a cylinders, that allows a engine to use a really high 12.5:1 application ratio for limit power. The pier fuel injectors, meanwhile, come into play during light- and medium-load conditions to assistance maximize explosion efficiency.
Altogether it gives drivers an knowledge that usually a naturally aspirated engine can deliver. One so scientifically polished that it brings drivers adequate energy to keep them intent with a stifle that responds to their any whim.
The involuntary and primer transmissions have also perceived a GR treatment.
The six-speed involuntary delivery now employs adaptive controls that clarity stop and accelerator operation, automatically changeable to a optimal rigging so a motorist can knowledge usually a right volume of control. Torque ability has also increased, as good as a series of purchase discs.
The primer delivery now uses low-viscosity oil and strut orientation that raise purchase ability and rigging strength. These materials support a aloft torque outlay of a 2.4L fighter engine. The hint of GR 86-ness is also prisoner by a redesigned, low locate primer rigging box that delivers smooth, beguiling control for primer delivery aficionados.
Add it all together and we get a agility, responsiveness, and easy-to-drive feeling that equals “86-ness.”
Track Ready Performance, Everyday Comfort
GR 86’s driver-focused cockpit is designed to rouse a daily pushing knowledge while also charity a morality that keeps drivers precisely focused on a road. Start adult a GR 86 and you’re greeted by a 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) shade with an opening animation method desirous by a piston movements of a GR 86’s horizontally against engine.
The arrangement has an all-new three-mode digital orchestration with Normal, Sport, and Track modes. While in Track mode, drivers get real-time readouts of rigging position, engine speed, H2O temperature, and oil temperature.
The horizontally configured instrument row now has LCD toggle displays with china embellished dials that give a cabin a modern, competition desirous feel. A leather-trimmed steering circle (AT only: w/paddle shifters) and leather-wrapped parking stop hoop and rigging change foot also supplement refinement.
Standard competition front bucket seats with side bolsters resolutely reason drivers in place around any corner, with upgraded leather embellished competition seating and aluminum pedals on a Premium model. The GR 86 also brings bland usability, with 2+2 seating that offers a flexibility of overlay down back seats.
