Recently Toyota brought the new ’22 Toyota GR86 by the SEMA Garage for a measuring session. According to the company the new platform represents, ”...a track-ready, driver’s car made for pure fun.” SEMA members immediately poured over the car for several days looking for opportunities to develop new products. In addition, Top 12 Battle of the Builders Finalist, Chelsie Lesnoski from Throttle Thrashers Garage got a tour around the vehicle from Toyota Spokesperson Dan Gardner. Here’s a few highlights from the walk around.
According to Toyota, the GR86 offers more horsepower and torque, a redesigned interior and exterior and a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of just $27,700. Customers will have the option of two grades, GR86 and GR86 Premium and a choice of manual or paddle shifted automatic transmission.
