Meet the All-New 2022 Toyota GR 86

July 20th, 2021 by

The latest Toyota to earn the Gazoo Racing (GR) badge is the all-new 2022 Toyota GR 86! The new Toyota sports car replaces the previous Toyota 86 coupe, which did not have the GR title, and now has more power, performance and style. Available as a 6-speed manual or automatic, the new 2022 Toyota GR 86 boasts updated new tech features and two trims — the GR 86 and GR 86 Premium.

The new 2022 Toyota GR 86 sports car features an upgraded 228 horsepower 2.4-Liter FA24 flat-four boxer engine with up to 184 lb-ft of torque. This larger engine drops the 0-60 time from 7 seconds to just 6.1 seconds with a manual transmission and from 8 to 6.6 seconds with an automatic.

Already famous for its handling thanks to its wide stance, low center of gravity and 2+2 rear-wheel drive, the new GR 86 benefits from increased rigidity and stability as well as a lighter weight — now just about 2,800 lbs. Tweaks to the intake and exhaust systems, bore size increase and a revamped Toyota D-4S dual injection tech help the 2022 GR 86 power up.

The exterior of the new Toyota GR 86 coupe is athletic, aerodynamic and low to the ground. Choose from seven colors — Neptune Blue, Trueno Blue, Halo White, Pavement Grey, Steel Grey, Raven Black or Track bRED. The front bumper acts as an area stabilizer, and an available rear duckbill spoiler keeps you tight to the road. Front air dams and vents distribute air to the wheelhouse and inside bumper to improve steering responsiveness.

Every new 2022 Toyota GR 86 also comes with a 1-year NASA membership! No, not space NASA. The National Auto Sport Association membership includes entry to one free High Performance Driving Event as well as discounted tickets to NASA events for the year.

Inside the 2022 Toyota GR 86, the cabin is designed to feel like a race car, albeit a comfortable one. Enjoy upgraded bucket seating with more support, side bolsters, and Alcantara seats with leather-trimmed accents, in the GR 86 Premium. The rear seats fold down to accommodate extra passengers or easily tow to make room for more gear.

The 2022 GR 86 also gets some upgraded tech, including a new three-mode digital display that changes based on the selected drive mode — Normal, Sport or Track. Driving in Track Mode will provide real-time readouts of your engine speed, water and oil temperature, and gear position. A 6-speaker audio system with an 8-inch touchscreen comes standard, or upgrade to an 8-speaker system in the GR 86 Premium. You also get Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration with available Toyota Connected Services.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Toyota without a host of advanced safety features and the famous 2-year/25,000-miles ToyotaCare warranty with 24/7 roadside assistance also for two years. The 2022 GR 86 includes Toyota’s Star Safety System™, which includes:

  • Vehicle Stability Control
  • Traction Control
  • Smart Stop Technology®
  • Hill Start Assist Control
  • Brake Assist
  • And more!
