No one is going to buy the 2020 Toyota Supra based on its fuel efficiency numbers, but they are important to know and the EPA has just released them.
All-new GR Supras sold throughout the United States have a rating of 24 mpg (9.8 l/100km) in the city, 31 mpg (7.6 l/100km) on the highway, and 26 mpg (9.0 l/100km) combined. These figures are quite respectable, especially when you consider that the four-cylinder BMW Z4 returns 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined.
All 2020 Toyota Supra models bound for the United States are fitted with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine producing 335 hp and 365 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. This engine is coupled exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that sends power to the rear wheels. Toyota quotes a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of 4.1 seconds with the GR Supra.
Interestingly, the Supra sold in Japan can be had with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In entry-level form, this engine has 194 hp and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque. A more potent four-cylinder version with 254 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) is also available. Neither of these models will be sold in the United States, but that’s not really a surprise when there’s still the 86 around.
Production of the 2020 Toyota Supra commenced in Graz, Austria towards the end of March with U.S. deliveries set to start in the summer. The first 1500 units sold stateside will be Launch Edition models, each priced from $55,250. For those that don’t want to spend that much, ‘regular’ GR Supra models can be purchased from $49,990.
