Toyota GT86 To Get More Power

The chief engineer for the Toyota GT86, Tetsuya Tada in a recent interview has remarked that the requests for more power for the GT86 will be addressed soon. This compact RWD coupe is going to receive more power for sure as customers are demanding it. This translates into a bigger engine as Tada said the company is currently testing a new engine alongside a turbocharged and a hybrid powertrain. To start, the GT86 will get a 2.5-liter engine developing around 250bhp. Also, the next-generation Toyota GT86, ‘Tada hinted’ that it will be a radically different car which could drop the boxer engine. Currently the Toyota GT86 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine delivering 200hp and a maximum torque of 205Nm. The engine is bolted as standard to a six-speed manual transmission but Toyota offers an optional 6-speed automatic gearbox.
