When you think of speed, you might also be thinking of the Toyota GR 86. Which is truly known to have a rear-drive architecture, revvy-or-not engine and a six-speed manual. On top of that, there was some spark about the vehicle that made it entertaining for other vehicular enthusiasts. There’s a certain excitement that comes with the Toyota brand. And now that it’s back for the 2022 experience, there’s a likelihood that the GR 86 will be one of the truest examples of speed in this arena. The 2022 GR 86 had a 2.4-liter capability that creates 228 horsepower with 184 lb-ft of torque as well as 23 horses and 28 lb-ft above the original 86.
How does the Toyota GR test?
There was a weak 2.0-liter engine that powers it to 60 miles per hour in about 6.8 seconds on the last test track. Max torque doesn’t come in until a lofty 3,700 rpm. Yet the 86 was quick enough from the get-go. There’s an ability to rotate the coupe with the throttle in place. Simultaneously, it also moves the rear out in a way that is perhaps better to control when a drifter is able to achieve that reality.
This 2022 model of the Toyota GR 86 has also given way to aerodynamics and air management alike. It comes equipped with actual real air ventilation through the front bumper and the fenders as well in order to cool the engine a whole lot more accurately. This type of end will not be the most ridiculous end for the Toyota GR 86. It’s a great vehicle for sure but the chances of the steering being “laser precise” couldn’t be more than a theory really.
The new engine has a range in where it can recover the mid-range torque dip. There is at least a 50% chance of it being greater than the other models involved. Isn’t that pretty dang strange?
