What is the new engine available with the 2021 Supra?
For uninitiated, it might seem like the Toyota Supra was built around its powerful V-6 engine. Its 2020 output of more than 330 horsepower can be intimidating to a lot of customers who are new to this type of vehicle. When the 2021 GR Supra arrives at our showroom, the new Supra 2.0 trim will serve as a new entry-level trim for the sports car.
The 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 will have a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that is attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The newest member of the Supra family will make 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and is reported to have a zero-to-60 mph time of five seconds.
Additionally, the 2021 GR Supra 2.0 will be the lightest version of the sports coupe Toyota produces. The vehicle’s gross vehicle weight is more than 200 pounds lighter than the 2020 model.
Upgraded performance specs
Future Serra Toyota customers who want to experience everything the 2021 GR Supra has to offer can still choose the coupe’s full-power model. The 2021 GR Supra 3.0 will retain the twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder engine that is attached to the same eight-speed automatic transmission. For the new model year, it will now produce 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. Just for the sake of comparison, the original Supra made 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque.
If owners plan on taking their 2021 GR Supra 3.0 out on the track, they’ll be able to accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
