2020 Toyota Supra Debuts at Detroit Auto Show
Years of waiting, countless leaks, and several teases later, the legendary Toyota Supra (and all its specs) is finally unveiled.
If it feels like the all-new 2020 Toyota Supra debuted years ago, we don’t blame you. Perhaps the worst kept automotive secret of the last decade, this rebirth of a Japanese performance icon has been leaked more than any car in history. At least it feels that way. But now the new Supra is finally, officially official after the car’s debut at the Detroit Auto Show.
Many of the details surrounding the new Supra have likewise been public knowledge for some time. Mostly the fact that it was co-developed by Toyota with BMW, and that it shares a platform with the new Z4. Even the interior looks, well, like it came out of a BMW. But this shared relationship isn’t such a bad thing, of course. Especially when you consider Bimmer’s reputation for building an excellent chassis.
Then there’s performance. The reborn Toyota Supra packs a turbocharged, 3.0-liter, straight-six powerplant producing 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. Feeding power through an 8-speed automatic transmission (the only gearbox option, for now) to the rear wheels, the 3,397-pound Supra reaches 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
The new Supra hits U.S. dealerships this summer in three trim levels – 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and Launch Edition. Pricing comes in at $50,920 for the base car, $54,920 for the Premium, and $56,180 for the limited-edition “Launch” models.
Premium buyers get a 12-speaker JBL sound system, leather seats, and heads-up display for their extra coin. The Launch Edition, limited to 1,500 cars, features all of that plus special red accents and leather.
Whether or not the 2020 Toyota Supra lives up to the hype and/or adequately replaces the long-gone MKIV Supra remains to be seen. But seeing one of the most legendary performance nameplates return to this world is never a disappointment in our book.
