You Won’t Believe 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition Interior (with Video)

All-new 2023 Toyota GR86 – learn all about the new special edition.


Toyota unveiled an incredible number of new models, trim levels, and special editions at their annual product showcase this past summer.

I was particularly impressed with the refreshed 2023 Camry Nightshade and Venza Nightshade.

But one of these special edition vehicles that may not have received as much publicity as others is absolutely worth another look.

The 2023 Toyota GR86.

In honor of its 10th anniversary, Toyota revealed its, well, 10th Anniversary Edition GR86. The first impression, of course, has to be the shockingly bright Solar Shift color. And it is not just on the outside.

2023 Toyota GR86 Review

I had the opportunity this week in Utah to get a closer look at 2023 GR86 10th Anniversary Edition. You will find my review here and on my “ToyotaJeff Reviews” YouTube channel.

My full review video above highlights features, technology, engine performance, and much more. I hope you enjoy it.

I was completely captivated by the orange trim and accents throughout the interior cabin. Passengers have Ultrasuede and leather seating with orange stitching, an embroidered 10th Anniversary graphic on the door panels, armrest and shifter orange accents, and a limited production commemorative plaque.

Look for more 2023 GR86 10th Anniversary Edition features. Sharp black graphics around the C-pillar and a rear duckbill spoiler, forged 18-inch matte black alloy wheels (with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires, black lug nuts, and black center caps), and GR cat-back performance exhaust with black chrome tips.

2023 Toyota GR86 Pricing

Production of 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition will be limited to 860 units (see what Toyota did there?).

Pricing is not released yet for 2023 GR86 Special Edition. However, the 2022 GR86 prices ranged from $27,700 to $31,800 for factory MSRP.

I would not expect 2023 pricing to raise dramatically between model years. And I really have no idea what the 10th Anniversary Edition will come in at. I will update you on my social media platforms when this is available.

Time for Your Toyota GR86 Comments

In my opinion, if you like this style and size of vehicle, Toyota GR86 is a tremendous value. It is not often these days that you can get so much bang for your buck wavering around the $30,000 mark.

What do you think of GR86? Are you a fan of the Solar Shift color? And would you want to test drive and potentially purchase one?

Thanks for reading everyone. See you next story.

That 10th Anniversary stitching in the door, why?? That is so ugly. This may actually be enough to ask for my deposit back

I no longer have a deposit on it - got them refunded since I can not stand that door stitching. None of the dealers know if they are getting one but I wanted to be first on list if they did so I went in and put down the deposit, being clear I was only interested in the special edition.

3/9/23 was when I finally received this car. They announced the release for October 2022. I am disappointed in the outside color (not bright enough), the audio dashboard and the seat heaters (not enough power). Definitely expected more for a 10 year.
