Toyota has released their new model for 2022, called the GR86. This car is the successor to the previous models, the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ.

Additionally, the GR86 is equipped with the latest technology to provide a better driving experience. With these improvements, the GR86 is an attractive car for sports car enthusiasts who are looking for a combination of performance and comfort in their driving experience.
Fun, meet finesse.
The all-new 2022 Toyota GR86 has earned its “Gazoo Racing” badge and is ready to go. Engineered with the input of track-proven drivers, the soul of the AE86 continues to live on as a modern-day sports car. Whether you’re rowing through the 6-speed manual transmission or triggering the paddle shifters, the thrill of driving is at your fingertips.
Born on the track
Passion fuels innovation, and it’s our passion for motorsports that fuels Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR), Toyota’s global racing division. Racing gives us the opportunity to challenge ourselves — to push the limits and create better cars. Collectively, we grow through every turn of the wrench and every turn of the wheel. This dedication led us to develop GR86, making racing-inspired sports cars accessible to the everyday driver and bringing the excitement of motorsports to the streets.
Toyota Gazoo Racing started with our unrelenting passion for motorsports, and led to high-performance road cars with the DNA of motorsports. With heavy involvement from professional drivers and a track-proven formula for optimal engineering, the GR series was designed to leave a lasting impression.
Fine-tuned by track-proven and master drivers like Morizo, Akio Toyoda’s alter ego, every vehicle that’s earned the GR badge has been thoroughly pushed, honed and perfected through extensive testing on the racetracks.
Reach peak fun.
A sports car in the purest sense, GR86’s 2.4L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder boxer engine keeps the heart racing, with almost 20% more engine displacement than its predecessor. With its close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed auto with Dynamic Rev Management, you’re in control.
Reengineered torque curve
Born to take on the track, GR86’s optimized torque curve keeps G-force on tap as you accelerate. This
provides more usable power in the lower rpm range as you reach 184 lb.-ft. of peak torque and is ready
to plant you in your seat.
2.4L 4-cylinder boxer engine
A 2.4L flat-four boxer engine that pumps out 228 horsepower is impressive enough, but because it sits low in the chassis, the center of gravity is optimized to carve those corners.
6-speed manual or automatic transmission
Choose your thrill. Whether rowing through the gears of a 6-speed close-ratio manual with a short-throw
shifter or triggering the paddle shifters of the 6-speed auto with Dynamic Rev Management, GR86 will always
be ready for your next move.
Turn on the new Track Mode to change the tach’s display and bring important info like rpm and gear into focus. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)2 is also dialed back to help you reach the limits of grip, while Full-Off Mode prevents the VSC from kicking in, putting you in full control.
Blow everyone away.
GR86 is about the connection between you and the road. Its lightweight body and low center of gravity give you the agility to handle the twists and turns, while its available 18-in. matte-black painted alloy wheels with Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4 tires3 provide a tighter grip of the road.
Front fender air vents
The aggressive front fenders with functional air vents help channel air around the car for more driving stability and turning performance.
Track-tuned suspension and limited-slip differential
GR86’s multi-link rear suspension and stabilizer bars allow smooth wheel travel to help sharpen turns and enhance grip over uneven surfaces. During low-traction situations, a Torsen®4 limited-slip differential (LSD) helps improve low-end acceleration by automatically distributing power to the wheel that needs it.
Handles sharp. Looks sharp.
GR86 returns with a fresh new look, inside and out. The sleek LED lighting on the exterior improves visibility and style, while inside, a 3-mode GR digital instrumentation panel, redesigned dashboard and center console with silver toggle switches highlight GR86’s driver-focused cockpit.
Leather and Ultrasuede®5 touches and aluminum pedals are available to help raise the bar on the quality inside.
With its refined aerodynamic profile, GR86 returns as the perfect example of functional beauty. Its long hood and short rear deck highlight racing-inspired proportions while underneath, weight was meticulously removed as much as possible for near-perfect weight distribution and highly responsive driving performance.
Up to speed with the latest tech.
8-in. display screen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility
Inside, GR86’s 8-in. touchscreen comes standard with a suite of Connected Services,19 like Android Auto™7
and Apple CarPlay®8 compatibility, that helps you seamlessly stay connected to your world while on the
go. Get directions, have your messages read aloud to you, and text back by voice, all while keeping your
hands on the wheel.
Digital gauge cluster
Get all the vital info you need at a glance. From the moment you power it up, GR86’s fully digital instrument display welcomes you with a reminder of the FA24 boxer engine inside. The configurable 3-mode gauge cluster display allows you to toggle between Normal, Sport or Track Modes, and change the way the tachometer animates.
Available eight speakers
Just like the engineering under the hood, GR86’s speaker system is designed to amplify every drive. Cleaner, crisper and more dynamic, its available eight-speaker sound system delivers enhanced sound quality while an available 10-in. powered subwoofer is ready to add more bass to your playlist.
Peace of mind for the road ahead.
It’s not just the performance that’s advanced. GR86 is available with the latest safety technologies to help keep you safe from start to finish.
GR86 Active Safety Suite
On automatic transmission models, GR86 comes standard with a number of intelligent safety features, 9including a Pre-Collision Braking System (PCBS),34 Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise
Control (ACC) with Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Sway Warning,10 and Automatic High Beams.
Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
The available Blind Spot Detection (BSD)12 warns you when a vehicle in the next lane enters GR86’s blind spot. And when you’re in reverse, RCTA13 helps detect vehicles approaching from either side, warning you with side mirror indicators and a warning tone.
LED lighting with Adaptive Front-Lighting System
The eye-catching headlights on GR86 feature LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and an available Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS).14 At night, the AFS headlights turn alongside the front wheels, helping
you see better around the next corner.
With safety as a top priority, GR86 comes standard with a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System:15 front seat mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags, and driver’s knee airbags.
