The Toyota GT-86 is known by numerous names, these including Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. It is also a very popular sports car, appreciated not merely for the elegance of its design or even any advances it might have made in terms of performance but its simplicity. Toyota defines the 2018 Toyota GT-86 as a compact car with a great engine, and it strives to enhance these qualities over everything else.
This 2018 Toyota GT-86 article is based on rumors and speculation! There are no official info yet! When they come out we will update our post!
Most commonly known as Scion FR-S, the GT-86 made its debut in 2011 and has continued to perform impressively in the market ever since. With an altered design and engine configurations as well as various other modifications, fans of the model are eagerly waiting to figure out whether the 2018 Toyota GT-86 will continue to aspire towards the simple goals of its predecessor.
There are some modifications to be expected with the new GT-86’s exterior. Fans can expect a larger rear spoiler, 18 inch wheels, high performance tires and a new body kit. If the photos are anything to go by, the 2018 GT-86 is going to feature a considerably more attractive profile, with most changes, such as the somewhat larger rear wing and stretched front splitter, purposed less towards aesthetics and more for improving the car’s aerodynamics.
With a light body constructed out of carbon fiber, the 2018 Toyota GT-86 is not only going to avail a thinner look, but the handling and stability should be augmented immensely, especially with the weight distribution (47% at the rear, 53% at the front) which is aimed towards achieving proper balance.
The first thing anyone is going to notice about the interior is the elegant look, largely resulting from the change in crafting material, with aluminum and leather, possibly even carbon fiber availed as options (though this will depend on the model in question). The interior design is subtle and detailed, with notable features, minus standard infortainment systems and attributes, including customized knee support.
When it comes to the engine, the new GT-86 (or at least the base model and convertible version) will retain the current model’s 2L 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 200hp and 190 pounds-per-foot of torque. That being said the vehicle should boast superior fuel consumption to its predecessor. With driving configurations reminiscent of the forerunner, customers can expect an eight speed automatic gearbox with regards to transmission.
When it comes to the Sedan however, customers can expect a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged inline engine capable of generating 180hp and a torque of 220lb-ft.
And then there is the 2018 GT-86 TRD model, expected to boast a 2.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged boxer (similar to the engine unit utilized by the Impreza STI), producing 300hp and 300 pounds-per-Feet of torque. Unlike the Sedan, the TRD model will be made available with Rear Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive System options.
Toyota is also expected to make available a hybrid option utilizing a 2.4 liter engine alongside an electric motor.
2018 Toyota GT-86 Release Date and Price
The company is yet to officially announce the release date of the 2018 Toyota GT-86 but most professionals in the automobile industry expect the vehicle to hit markets by the last quarter of 2017, with the price tag floating around the $20,000 estimate (remaining largely unchanged from the present model), though the Sedan and Convertible are expected to attract notably higher price tags.
