2018 Toyota 86: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - December 12, 2017

Model Preview

The Toyota 86 will gain small updates for the 2018 model year. Order guides reveal that the most notable change will be the addition of a new GT grade offering sportier styling and some additional features.

In terms of appearance, the standard coupe will feature no major updates compared to the current car. For 2018, a new color called Thunder (solid grey) will be available on all versions for the first time.

Inside the cabin, the most notable tweak will be a relocated backup camera. Toyota has decided to move the display up from the head unit to the rearview mirror.

For shoppers looking for a bit more in terms of features, a new GT trim will be offered. Much like the 2017 Special Edition, the car will come standard with extras like LED fog lights and an underbody spoiler.

The GT's cabin will come with leather heated seats with suede-like Granlux, dual-zone automatic climate, a leather steering wheel with silver stitching and audio controls, a leather-wrapped parking brake lever, and smart key with push-button start. The car also features a 4.2-inch display with a readout for g-force, RPM & torque, coolant & oil temperature and more.

The GT will actually be offered in two versions: GT and GT Black. The key difference is that instead of color-keyed side mirrors and rear wing supports, the Black will feature both with a Raven black finish. Photos have not yet been released, but we'll update this page when they become available.

In terms of safety, there are no indications that the 86 will gain any of the advanced safety features as other models in Toyota's lineup. These include features like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and more.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2018 Toyota 86 is due to begin production this month.

Official pricing will start at $27,150 including destination, the same price as the 2017 model. The available 6-speed automatic adds $720 for an MSRP of $27,870.

The new 86 GT will start at $29,280, or $2,130 more than the base model. With an automatic, the car rings in at exactly $30,000. The optional Black variant is priced identically.
