Toyota updates the GR Supra for 2021.

The car gets a new base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine. A 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged unit comes optional.

In comparison with the 2020 model, the 2021 Toyota Supra with the 6-cylinder mill has a lower fuel efficiency, while the engine is 47-hp more powerful.

Let’s see the EPA* rates:

  • 2020 Toyota GR Supra has 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, 26 mpg combined;
  • 2021 Toyota GR Supra has 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, 25 mpg combined.

The difference is not large for a person who doesn’t worry much about fuel economy.

The new GR Supra is 0.2-second faster when accelerates from 0 to 60 mph.

The upgraded 6-cylinder delivers 382 hp against 335 hp of the previous car. The torque increases from 365 lb-ft at 1,600 rpm to 368 lb-ft 1,800 rpm.

New exhaust manifold and piston design, as well as a lower compression ratio help, pump up the engine.

Toyota also revised the chassis for the 2021 model. It should go on sale in mid-summer 2020.

*The average ratio WLTP/EPA is 1.121
