For the 2022 model year, the Toyota GR86 made its debut and completely dominated the sports car market. The 2022 Toyota GR86, formerly known as the Toyota 86, sported a fresh look, a bigger engine, and improved handling characteristics. We recently reviewed this vehicle and were really pleased. See what Toyota has planned for the GR86 in 2023.

The Subaru BRZ, the GR86’s cousin, hasn’t yet received official pricing, but you can anticipate it to follow precedent and go up somewhat overall.
Will there be any GR86 produced?
The 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition immediately conveys the Gazoo Racing magic, and not just because of the logo. The exterior color, which Toyota refers to as Solar Shift, was especially developed for this particular model and really makes it stand out. This painting is exclusive to this GR86 model.
The use of black highlights, particularly a GR cat-back performance exhaust system with stainless steel pipes, black chrome tips, and a GR emblem, contributes to the vehicle’s dynamic appearance. The coupe starts out in elegance thanks to the black rear spoiler. The 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition’s overall exterior design seeks to make a strong first impression every time it hits the road. We have no issues at all with this.
The Special Edition GR86 uses 18-inch, 10-spoke black aluminum alloy wheels as opposed to the ordinary GR86’s 17-inch, 10-spoke machined-finish aluminum alloy wheels. Additionally, it will upgrade the GR86’s standard equipment to include a number of goodies, including six-way adjustable front seats, perforated UltraSuede fabric, an eight-speaker audio system with an amplifier, and many more.
The 2023 Toyota GR86, all things considered, is a cutting-edge sports coupe with superb specs, impressive handling, a plush interior, and cutting-edge technology. You have the option to burn the road with it or cruise gently through the city. In any case, the Gazoo Racing spirit will accompany the drivers on all of their adventures and prioritize pleasure.
With the 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition being a shockingly affordable sports coupe, who could possibly ask for more? We actually only have one (very small) more wish. Only 860 copies of the 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition will be produced, thus only a select few will have the chance to drive an all-orange car. Therefore, we would want to request increased production levels in the future, if Toyota is listening.
A GR86 is pre-orderable.
However, at John Elway’s Crown Toyota, you may place a pre-order for the exact new car you want without having to pay a premium. Corollas, Camrys, Prius, C-HRs, as well as the GR86 and the Corolla Cross. RAV4s, Venzas, Highlanders, 4Runners, and the impending 2023 Sequoia are all available for order.
Is GR86 superior to BRZ?
We can (and will, don’t worry) compare all of our test results to see which one is superior based on many measurable criteria, but the suspension settings are by far the most important factors in this situation. What better starting point could we ask for than for both of our test cars to be within 5 pounds of one another and to be equipped with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires that are readily available (reserved for the Limited model of the BRZ and the Premium trim of the GR86), leveling the playing field where the rubber literally meets the road?
The Toyota GR86 just beat out the BRZ at the test track, showing greater grip on the skidpad (0.98 g vs. 0.93) and reaching 60 mph 0.1 second quicker, in 5.8 seconds, despite each vehicle having the same amount of power, weight, and tire options. The GR86 completed our figure-eight course in under a second faster. The Subaru stopped from 60 mph in a solid 107 feet, 1 foot shorter than the Toyota, giving an indication of its firmer front end. This was the Subaru’s lone objective dynamic victory over the GR86, however both cars experienced brake fade during our track session. If you intend to take part in a track day, consider upgrading the brake fluid, brake pads, or both. You may also consider finding a means to improve the cooling of the current brakes.
The BRZ is certainly not a pushover, but it excels at consistency. The Subaru is without a doubt the more dependable lap-time companion of the two thanks to its more planted rear end. Although it will outperform the BRZ if you’re prepared to put a little more effort into your driving, you’ll be having too much fun in the Toyota to care much about lap times. This is because even beginners may readily approach and cross over the grip threshold at sub-felony speeds because the GR86’s butt slides about a lot more, but its movement is telegraphed to the driver’s southern cheeks. With other words, if you overcook something in the Toyota, it’s simple to rein it back in.
Recovery in the Subaru requires a little more concentration; even if its tail clings on for a longer period of time, it releases less gently. Consider it like this: The ultimate rear-end grip of the BRZ is similar to that of the GR86, but there is a smaller window between possessing that grip and losing it. The BRZ can drift, but getting there and maintaining that edge requires more accurate steering and throttle inputs from more seasoned drivers. By the way, the center console of both automobiles has a setting for stability control that alternates between on and off.
Is the GR86 pricey or not?
The 2023 Toyota GR86 Premium’s slight price premium above the original pricing is more than justified. The Premium comes with a better eight-speaker audio system, heated seats, beautiful 18-inch wheels with summer performance tires, and adaptive LED headlights as standard features.
The GR86 is quick.
The Toyota GR86 is not quick in 2022. Although I wouldn’t even consider it quick, driving aggressively is a lot of fun.
The 2.4L 4-cylinder boxer engine produces 184 pound-feet of torque and 228 horsepower. With the automatic, that equates to a 0-60 mph pace of 6.6 seconds, versus 6.1 seconds for the manual.
With short wait time before the injectors squirt extra fuel into the engine, the thin pedal responds to driver inputs well. Before the revs start to increase, drivers will notice a small dead spot in the power curve, but after it passes roughly 3,500 rpm, the normally aspirated engine—there is no turbo here—has a smooth, linear power band.
Additionally, the brakes are strong for a vehicle at this price point. Although the first bite isn’t as strong as you might want it to be for track and performance driving, the brakes are nevertheless enough to rapidly slow or stop this little, light car.
Even without a lot of power, the GR86 is easy to maneuver and/or spin the tires, especially when in Track Mode and the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is disabled.
The conventional Torsen limited-slip differential improves driving performance. It’s entertaining to use a decent handbrake to start slides, but it’s not really necessary for controlled wheel-spinning enjoyment. With its rear-wheel drive setup and balanced chassis, this car can deliver a ton of excitement at any time.
The suspension also truly pleased me. It somehow manages to keep the car reasonably flat when negotiating curvy roads and absorb significant bumps with ease.
The 2022 GR86 comes standard with dual cat-back exhaust, which looks excellent protruding out the back of the car. The problem is that the exhaust doesn’t exactly inspire. This vehicle is therefore ready for an aftermarket exhaust option.
The GR86 has a turbo?
Review of the 2022 Toyota GR 86: Surprisingly, No Turbo. The Toyota GR86, which has a GR badge and is available with both automatic and manual gearboxes, will debut in 2022. The increase in engine size from 2.0L to 2.4L produces 228hp and 184lb-ft of torque (formerly 205hp and 156 lb-ft).
What happens if 93 fuel is placed in an 87 vehicle?
Do not become alarmed if the manufacturer of your automobile or truck suggests premium fuel for your vehicle but you instead use normal. Even though premium is advised, you are not required to use it; the engine can run just as well on standard gas.
You can run into issues if you use standard fuel when your manufacturer calls for premium. How well your car or truck will handle normal petrol depends on the sophistication of your fuel system as well as other elements like how your engine is tuned, what the timing is, and how hot it runs. Most of the time, the car will run just fine, although you might notice less power and reduced gas mileage. Because the fuel isn’t burning properly in more acute cases, you might hear engine banging or valve chatter. You should take it to your mechanic because these things might harm your engine.
Can 87 and 91 gas be combined?
Yes, drivers are allowed to mix the two fuel kinds. According to The Drive, the mixture of gas types will produce an octane level somewhere in the center, which the vehicle “will survive.
What happens if a BRZ is filled with normal gas?
There will be no harm. simply less power Use standard, premium, or plus, or whatever you choose. Since the car was new ten years ago, my father has only ever used normal gas in his Acura MDX, and the engine or power train issues have never arisen. With more than 150K miles currently, it.
I want to know if the MDX manual specifies premium as required or recommended like the FR-S instructions. If it says regular, it is accepted that using regular won’t really affect your mileage and is alright, but you will lose some performance, which is acceptable for daily driving.
However, if the engine NEEDS premium, as the FR-S does, you will obtain worse gas mileage, offsetting your savings and, worse still, putting you in a hazardous warranty position if your problem is ever fuel-related.
Personally, I don’t gamble with my money and try to maximize the life of the automobile and maintain excellent relations with the manufacturer warranty. Since it’s not my money or automobile at stake, feel free to be the test subject if you think that’s all nonsense.
