Toyota's New 2020 Supra Will Start in Low $50Ks - 3-Liter Inline Turbo, No Stick Shift
Toyota has finally released details on it all-new two-seat 2020 Supra sports car and loyalists and former owners of Supras (like your author) will have mixed emotions.
2020 Supra Prices
First up, the price tag. Toyota says the new Supra will "start" at about $51,000. Add in nav and premium audio and the price is about $55,000. At these prices, Toyota is pricing the Supra in the same league with the Lexus RC 350 F Sport. Unless Lexus plans to discontinue that coupe. The RC's sales are trending to zero.
2020 Supra Drivetrain
The New Supra has a 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder engine with 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. Every Supra had an inline six, all the way back to the 1979 model in the U.S. It is nice to see Toyota keeping that link to its heritage. The Supra is also rear-wheel drive, a rare thing these days in new vehicle launches. Many sports car fans may be dismayed to hear that the Supra will not come with a manual transmission option. Instead, the only transmission will be an 8-speed auto with paddle shifters. Just like the RC.
Are you one of the approximately 50% of American adults who uses an iPhone? If so, you will be pleased to hear that Apple CarPlay will be available. Are you one of the 50% of American adults that uses an Android phone (like the author and our editor)? You're out of luck. No Android Auto.
New Supra Availability
The New Supra will be available this summer in its $56K launch Edition.
