Toyota Announces Adrenaline-Pumping New 2023 GR86 Special Edition

Posted at Fri, Jul 15, 2022 9:00 AM

There is no matching the pure adrenaline and fun that comes from driving a state-of-the-art sports car, and Toyota has decided to encapsulate those feelings in physical form with the newest (and limited) edition of the Toyota GR86. With the second generation of the GR86, introduced just this year, having made waves due to its increase in power in comparison to the first generation, it is an understatement to say that people are excited to know more about the 2023 GR86. Fortunately, you need look no further for more info – our Westbury Toyota staff have written up a short and concise look at everything the 2023 GR86 has to offer.

Sleek, Sophisticated, and Aggressive

This Special Edition of the GR86 is going to make a huge visual impact no matter where it goes. The Solar Shift exterior paint color, which is exclusive to the model, is bright and bold and perfectly complements the athletic design of the car. When you factor in the other facets of its appearance, such as the GR matte-black 18-inch wheels (complete with black lug nuts and black center caps), the black GR C-pillar graphic, and the debossed GR logo, the picture presented by this limited edition GR86 is one of blazing confidence and adrenaline.

Built for Performance

The “GR” in GR86 stands for “Gazoo Racing”, and the second generation of this car has ample credibility in that department. The new 2.4 liter (L) engine gives drivers almost 11 percent more horsepower (hp) than the first-gen, coming in at 228 hp and 184 lb-ft (pound-feet) of torque, which is up from 156 lb-ft from the first generation. The new engine was engineered to deliver a far more powerful driving experience overall, with fine-tuned response. It can deliver zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds with the six-speed manual transmission, and 6.6 seconds with the six-speed automatic transmission (ECT-i). In terms of mileage, the EPA estimate for the manual transmission is 20 mpg city,27 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined, and for the automatic transmission it is 21 mpg city, 31 highway, and 25 mpg combined.

The exhaust system, which is performance designed and features stainless steel pipes with a debossed GR logo and black chrome tips, also has a larger center pipe that emits a rolling, aggressive growly sound that is in line with the overall image of the car.

State-of-the-Art Interior

In terms of comfort and tech, the limited edition GR86 has not had to sacrifice anything in order to maintain its performance abilities. A digital display will inform the driver what driving mode they are in: Normal, Sport, Snow, or Track (which is also available with the manual transmission). Sport mode will give the speedometer a bright red ring around it, making it look racier. Track mode will display the RPM-band in the center of the instrument panel.

The leather wrapped steering wheel has the controls for hands-free calling, the audio system, the display meters, cruise control, and the voice recognition system. The center console features a split opening that has two cup holders, as well as two USB ports and an auxiliary audio port. The multimedia system has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in addition to being Bluetooth capable, and it also has a 3-month SiriusXM Platinum Plan trial.

Redefining the Sports Car

As you can tell from what we have shared above, the 2023 Special Edition GR86 is sure to delight all adrenaline junkie drivers. With only 860 units of this car being made available, the 2023 GR86 stands to be one of the most in-demand sports cars of the year!
