2025 Toyota GR Supra Dumps Base Engine

Toyota will be abandoning the 2.0-liter GR Supra from the 2025 model year, making the 382-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder the default powertrain. That’ll be a disappointment to some drivers hoping to save some money. But the assumption is that most customers would have rather stepped up to the 3.0.

The 2.0-liter turbo produces 255 horsepower and is capable of breezing through 60 mph in about 4.7 seconds. Quarter-mile times also aren’t too shabby with the coupe reliably staying just north of 13 seconds. However, the real benefit was that the model was thousands less than variants equipped with the 3.0-liter turbo — which has only gotten more powerful since the car’s reintroduction.

Now starting at $56,250 (plus the Dealer Processing and Handling fee of $1,095), the 3.0 becomes $850 richer for the 2025 model year. But the real tragedy is that it’s now the cheapest way to get into the Toyota Supra.

While the brand never really seemed like it was trying to make an affordable sports car out of the model, Toyota has effectively made it cost about $10,000 more than it otherwise would have. However, you are getting a sizable performance boost over the 2.0-liter variant, perhaps easing some of the tension associated with ballooning MSRPs.

You also get power-adjustable seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara, upgraded central display, and a 10-speaker audio system. Optioning the Premium trim upgrades the seats and sound system even further. But the main advantage is the 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque that comes by way of the inline six. It makes the 3.0-liter Supra about a second faster than the 2.0-liter version in both 0-60 and the quarter mile.

While the official numbers vary depending upon your transmission choice, drivers have the option of selecting between the six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic, which Toyota has decided to price identically.
