After a 21 year wait, Toyota fans finally had their first look at the brand-new 2020 Toyota Supra when it was revealed this week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Learn more about what drivers can expect when it rolls into their local dealership later this year below.
2020 Toyota Supra First Look: What can drivers expect?
The 2020 Supra’s powertrain was inspired by past Supra models. All 2020 Supra configurations will come standard with the same 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine rated at 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. Each engine is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission system with paddle shifters that helps power the Supra from zero to sixty in approximately 4.1 seconds. When released this summer, it will be the fastest production model ever created by the Toyota brand.
The cabin design in the 2020 Supra was built to offer drivers a great experience, whether they prefer using their new Toyota as a daily driver or they save their miles for the race track. Pulling a lot of cues from the fourth-generation Supra and 1967 Toyota 2000 GT, the newest Supra model delivers a driver-focused experience with a slim dashboard, a wide field-of-view for rounding corners, and driver gauges placed where they can easily be seen at a glance. Padded center console pillars on the driver and passenger sides offer support for tight turns at high speeds. Even the seats in the 2020 Supra were designed with thrill-seeking in mind. Head restraints and shoulder bolsters accompany driver and passenger seats for a firm hold.
