The 2020 Toyota Supra made its debut at this year’s North American International Auto Show marking the return of a beloved sports car. This is an enthusiasts car so it comes with all the power and performance features those drivers crave.
Under the hood is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline 6-cylinder with 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. There are paddles shifters if you want more control, but no manual transmission is available.
It’ll be quick with a 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. There will be two drive modes, Normal and Sport.
Sport mode reduces the traction and stability control, increases throttle response, sharpens the steering, adjust the suspension, and gives it a louder exhaust note. Book that track time now because that’s where you’re going to want to drive the Supra.
It has a low center of gravity and a 50/50 weight distribution to optimize handling. High structural rigidity and standard adaptive variable suspension further enhance handling along with specially tuned springs and shocks that put the focus on performance.
A choice of two trims will be offered with the base 3.0 starting at $49,990. It includes adaptive suspension, active rear differential, launch control, 6.5-inch display, and Alcantara seats.
Standard safety includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, road sign assist, and automatic high beams.
Step up to the 3.0 Premium and there’s no power increase, but rather a more premium interior. This trim gets an 8.8-inch wide-format touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Supra Connect telematics, wireless charging, 12-speaker JBL audio system, and color head-up display. It also gets heated, leather-trimmed seats. Pricing on the 3.0 Premium is $53,990.
There will be a special Launch Edition based off the 3.0 Premium. These will be the first 1,500 units shipped to the U.S. and will have an individually numbered carbon fiber badge on the dashboard. Launch Editions will have special styling elements to differentiate them from the rest of the lineup with pricing of $55,250.
If you want the very first 2020 Toyota Supra, then get your wallet ready. It will go to the highest bidder at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 19.
Expect the full Supra lineup to arrive in dealerships this summer.
