Toyota GT86 TRD

Posted in Cars

The Toyota GT86 TRD is a special edition vehicle made by Toyota’s Race Development. This gorgeous coupe features an improved suspension, new tires, a more aerodynamic body and a quad exhaust system. However, the release of the new GT86 was a little disappointing for the racer fans who were expecting more performance upgrades. Furthermore, this car also comes with a $10.800 price increase which most people consider to be unjustified. Lets take a closer look at this vehicle and see whether or not it was worth the wait.

  • Performance

As we mentioned above, few improvements were made to the car’s performance. The new Toyota GT86 TRD is powered by a 1998/4 engine which has a max power of 197 horse power at 7000 rotations per minute. Its pulling power is 151 lb/ft. However, despite the fact that it has no power improvements, it still has a superior agility and composure, compared to other competitive models. It has a 140 mph top speed and it can go from 0 to 62 miles in 7.6 seconds. This is not the most impressive performance and it can be quite dull for some drivers, especially since you have to give the engine a few pushes in order for it to perform well. However, the car does have a slick 6-speed manual transmission and its pedals are very comfortable and well positioned which can make the driving experience a little more entertaining.

  • Technical improvements

Despite the fact that no major improvements were made to the car’s performance, it does have a lot of great technical upgrades and modifications. It features a new exhaust system with quad tailpipes which allow the car to breathe lightly. The car also features some improvements in its fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

  • Exterior

The Toyota GT86 TRD runs on 18 inch alloy wheels which are an inch bigger than the standard model. The standard Toyota Prius-sourced Michelin Primacys were replaced with Yokohama Advan Sport tires. The aerodynamic body kit includes side skirts, a new splinter and a diffuser. The TRD symbols are nicely used on the fuel filler cap and the gear knob.

  • Interior

The standard version of the Toyota GT86 TRD comes with a Cruise Control System but if you want a satellite Navigation System, it will cost you another $1.245. You will have to spend another $2.600. The GT86 TRD features heated, front electric mirrors, electric window front and a power folding mirror. The seats are height adjustable but heated seats only come with the special pack.
