TORONTO, ON: Drive the legend, reborn – for less than you’d expect. The Toyota Supra returns to Canadian showrooms for the first time in more than 20 years, as the fully-loaded 2020 Toyota GR Supra prepares to turn heads and bust records on Track Days this year, at a MSRP of just $64,990, fully-loaded.
The GR is well-earned, with a lightweight, rigid, and 50:50 balanced body wrapped around a high-performance powertrain. With a low centre of gravity, and 335 horsepower plus 365 lb-ft of torque delivered to the rear wheels, the Supra is ready to put all challengers in the rear-view mirror. It starts with a 3.0L inline 6 gas engine, enhanced with direct injection, variable valve timing, a twin scroll turbocharger.
This powerful yet efficient engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic that delivers lighting-quick up- and down-shifts, enhanced with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual control. Short ratios for the lower gears and a Launch Control function enable powerful acceleration and maximum traction, with an estimated 0-96 km/h time of just 4.1 seconds.
A limited slip active differential on the rear axle uses an electric motor and multi-plate clutches to minimize understeer and oversteer, as well as controlling lateral torque when cornering – even when accelerating or braking – to enable greater momentum and control through turns.
On Track Days, the driver may engage the Supra’s Sport Mode setting, which reduces intervention by the vehicle’s traction and stability control functions, sharpens throttle response and active differential tuning, boosts steering weight and improves shift crispness for a more visceral driving experience.
Precise handling is assured through features such as responsive, sport-tuned adaptive electric steering, adaptive variable suspension with sport tuning and dynamic damper control, 19-inch forged alloy wheels and four-piston red painted Brembo brake calipers.
But performance is just the start of the package: The 2020 GR Supra offers much more, in a fully-loaded configuration.
The 2020 GR Supra is fitted with an extensive list of standard features, starting with a 425-Watt 12-speaker Premium JBL Display Audio system with 8.8-inch screen, integrated Sirius XM Satellite Radio and untethered Apple CarPlay. A new Toyota Supra Connect feature enables a full-service concierge service, remote locking/unlocking, embedded navigation with over-the-air updates, automatic collision detection with SOS and roadside assistance, stolen vehicle locator, and more. The 2020 Toyota GR Supra goes on sale this summer at Toyota Dealers across Canada. For complete and up to date details and specifications, visit www.toyota.ca/supra
