Model Preview

The 2023 Toyota GR86 should continue largely unchanged from the 2022 model, which was redesigned and reengineered for the first time in 10 years. Previously known as the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86 (and mechanically related to the Subaru BRZ), the GR86 sports coupe gained a new 228-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, representing a 23 horsepower bump over the 86's old 2.0-liter engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed automatic remains an option.

As with the previous FR-S and 86 models, the GR86 is a rear-wheel drive, two-door coupe with two small rear seats and limited trunk space. Besides new styling and a new platform, other changes for 2022 included a stronger body structure for increased rigidity and better handling, weight-saving body panels, and a new infotainment system and digital instrument panel.

Unlike most other Toyota models, the GR86 does not come standard with many driver assistance features, including automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, or lane-departure warning. Adaptive cruise control is available only with automatic transmission.

Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet tested the Toyota GR86.

Pricing & Release Date

Considering there are unlikely to be significant changes for 2023, the GR86 will likely keep prices close to 2022 levels, which start at $28,725 for the base model and go up to $31,325 for the Premium trim level.

Rivals for the GR86 may include the Mazda MX-5 Miata, upcoming Acura Integra, and Volkswagen GTI.

Expect to see the 2023 Toyota GR86 at dealerships by late fall 2022 based on the model's typical release date.
