Take control as you accelerate out of corners. Whether rowing through the gears of the 6-speed manual with 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.
Born to take on the track, GR86 keeps the heart racing with 20% more engine displacement than its predecessor. The new engine also produces a more linear torque curve that enhances its 0-60 acceleration, giving you a more usable powerband. The 2.4L flat-four boxer engine pumps out 228 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, while sitting low in the chassis to optimize balance and center of gravity when cutting those corners.

GR86 knows how to show off with a dual chrome-tipped exhaust optimized to better handle increased displacement and higher output. Constructed from high-grade, corrosion-resistant materials, this cat-back exhaust system features mandrel bends for smoother airflow, helping heighten GR86’s engine performance and making an impression at every block.
The automatic-transmission-equipped GR86 comes standard with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that feature intelligent Dynamic Rev Management. Just a simple pull of the lever allows the driver to quickly change gears while keeping both hands on the wheel.
Toggle to the new Track Mode to change the tach’s display and bring important info like rpm and gear into focus. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) 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.
GR86 comes track-ready, featuring a multi-link rear suspension and Torsen® limited-slip differential (LSD).
With its engine placed in front sending power to the rear wheels, GR86 was born to give you better control in corners. Lightweight materials, a strong chassis and optimal weight distribution all add up to impressive acceleration and nimble handling around every twist and turn in the road.
Standard on GR86 Premium, Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4 tires are designed to meet all your demands on and off the track. With their exceptional wet, dry and braking performance, get ready to post your best lap times.
The unibody construction of GR86 was engineered to be light and strong with the expanded use of both high-strength steel for enhanced rigidity and aluminum to help reduce weight. And by placing the engine low in its chassis, the engineers created a lower center of gravity to help improve handling and stability. Feel the agility as you hug every curve in the road.
With its refined aerodynamic profile, GR86 returns sleeker with a more aggressive look. The long hood and short rear deck highlight its racing-inspired proportions while underneath, almost every component, from its powertrain to its body panels, has been optimized to be as light as possible. Combine this along with its near-perfect weight distribution and prepare yourself for a highly responsive driving experience that sets the perfect example of functional beauty.
Inside, standard all-black leather touchpoints, like a leather-trimmed steering wheel, leather-wrapped parking brake handle, heated leather-trimmed seats and more, add touches of comfort and show off GR86’s sophisticated side.
Step in and see, feel and even hear the difference. Turbine-style air vents and a standard automatic climate control system with LCD control toggles announce GR86’s modern transformation. A redesigned dashboard and center console with silver toggles and available aluminum sport pedals also raise the bar on the quality inside. And for more cargo space, you can fold down the rear seats to make room for an extra set of track tires and tools.
Get all the vital info you need at a glance. From the moment you power it up, GR86’s digital instrument display welcomes you with a reminder of the FA24 engine inside. Toggle between Normal, Sport and Track Modes. With Track Mode activated, the gauge cluster reanimates to show you a linear style tachometer and larger shift light—helping you optimize your shifts.
Inside, GR86’s 8-in. touchscreen comes standard with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility. Get directions, have your messages read aloud to you, and text back by voice, all while keeping your hands on the wheel.
Just like the engineering under the hood, GR86’s speaker system is designed to amplify every drive. So blast some Eurobeat and get in the driving rhythm. Cleaner, crisper and more dynamic, GR86’s available eight speakers deliver an enhanced sound quality to get you in the mood for every drive. For those who want even more bass, an available 10-in., 200W subwoofer is ready to rumble. Simulation shown.
Experience convenience and peace of mind like never before with GR86’s new Connected Services, including Safety ConnectⓇ trial for Emergency Assistance Button and Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and Remote Connect to start, lock/unlock your doors and more using your compatible smart device.
On automatic transmission models, GR86 comes standard with a number of intelligent safety features, including Pre-Collision Braking System, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Sway Warning, and Automatic High Beams. GR86 Premium models also come with parking assist sonar and reverse automatic braking.
An available Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is designed to help look out for your safety. BSD warns you when a vehicle in the next lane enters GR86’s blind spot on either side of the vehicle. And when you’re in reverse, RCTA helps detect vehicles approaching from either side, warning you with side mirror indicators and a warning tone.
Eye-catching headlights on GR86 feature distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) to improve visibility and style, as well as an available Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS). At night, Adaptive Front-Lighting 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, front outboard seat-mounted side airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, and front driver’s knee airbags. Seven airbags in total—all designed for more peace of mind on every drive.
Every new GR86 comes with ToyotaCare, a maintenance plan that covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for 2 years, unlimited mileage.
