UPDATE: Jalopnik is reporting new information about the Toyota Supra slated for 2020. According to the site, the following trim levels have been revealed:
Base 3.0 six cylinder: $49,990
Premium 3.0 six cylinder: $53,990
Launch edition 3.0 six cylinder: $55,250
The Launch Edition is the pre-order car, and among other things has some aesthetic changes and may come with some accessories off car, but at its core is the 3.0L Premium.
If the engine size is true, and the basis that the Supra is built upon a platform developed by BMW, the engine may be similar to that found in the higher performance coupes like the M240i and 440i, but there is no mention yet of any forced induction. This of course is in comparison to the previous Toyota Supra’s legendary 2JZ-GTE engine which was also a turbocharged inline-6 cylinder.
Stay tuned for more news on the 2020 Toyota Supra as the car approaches the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
The wait is finally over. In a (now taken down) video clip released from Toyota Mexico, the final version of the 2020 Toyota Supra was revealed in all its glory. In the short but sweet video, Toyota Motor Corporation president Akio Toyoda appears on camera to announce, “I think we need a Supra story again.” It is immediately after that when we hear the exhaust notes from the Supra’s BMW-supplied engine.
Darting out from the corner, the Supra goes on to swerve left and right, showing us different views of its exterior. From the various angles we see the contoured body shape, aggressive front, and that unforgettable spoiler that looks straight out of a Rocket Bunny catalog. While the Tweet has since been deleted, SupraMKV was able to get the jump on the clip and upload it onto YouTube. Check out the video above for the heart-pounding teaser, and expect a full reveal to happen at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, happening next week.
