2020 Toyota Supra Engine Specs Review – The European market 2019 BMW Z4 and the global Market 2020 Toyota Supra share the same BMW B5830M1 3.0 litres DOHC 24 double-displacement single-line turbo valves six. It is a true direct tribute to the previous five Supras (six if the 2000GT is included) and a perfect successor. This aluminum engine generates 335 horsepower at 5.000 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at 1.600 rpm. Due to emission regulations in Europe (started in September 2018), this version of the B58 engine includes filters of petrol particles that eliminate the soot resulting in a greater counterpressure of the exhaust and a lower production of horsepower.
2020 Toyota Supra Engine Specs Review
There are No such particle regulations (yet) in the United States, so our Z4 free breathing M40i will get the B5830O1 version of 382 hp engine, which generates the same pair of 369 lb-ft. Unfortunately, our Supra in the market retains the EU filters and the resulting output. Both share the same ZF 8HP eight-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability, rotating an electronically controlled clutch differential between the rear wheels. Although both cars have a release control mode, the engine control unit, transmission and differential are adjusted to the wishes of each manufacturer.
Like many of the best sports cars, the SUPRA 2020 has a MacPherson front suspension and a multilink rear suspension with anti-tip bars. The aluminum control arms are screwed to the front auxiliary frame, and a combination of aluminum and steel is used on the back. The driver-selectable multi-mode shock absorbers provide distinctly different configurations between Normal, sport and Sport + modes. In addition to the suspension damping, these modes also affect stability control, throttle inclination, exhaust tone, gear shifts and steering weight/speed. Toyota boasts the 50/50 weight distribution of SUPRA and a low center of gravity, despite its vertical position of six upright.
With only 97.2 inches (a current 911 is 96.5 inches), the wheelbase of the SUPRA is 4.0 inches tighter than that of a Toyota 86. The width of the front and rear track (62.8/62.6 inches) is wider in 3.0 and 2.0 inches, respectively. The Supra-Custom tyres Michelin Pilot Super Sport (255/35R19 Front, 275/35R19 rear) are wider and much more aggressive than the 86. So not only is the “square ” of the Supra footprint, but it also adds 200 mm (7.9 inches) of rubber tyre width more adherent in relation to your brother’s sports coupe.
The 2JZ straight-six strong iron under your hood has used turbochargers big enough to sleep and nothing like a shark in an ocean of nitrous oxide. And yet, Toyota has left us supra for 20 years, sitting around doing nothing while the car accumulated a mountain of street culture.
Now the Big T is finally leveraging that powerful reputation in the form of the new (A90) Supra, which will explode at a Magna Steyr assembly plant in Graz, Austria, along with his brother, the BMW Z4. Yes, under an aspect based on the concept car FT-1 of 2014, surpasses a six-liter engine with six-liter turbocharger as well as its fast and furious ancestor.
The chassis, however, will withstand less power. The chief engineer, Tetsuya, admitted that a four-cylinder version of the SUPRA will come later. We suggest that such a machine is called Celica. The only transmission offered in model 2020 will be a version of the ubiquitous ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. Toyota still does not plan to offer a manual in the A90, although BMW is supposed to offer a cane to agitate with some Z4 engines in some markets but not in ours.
Like the engine, most of the mechanical substance of the SUPRA 2020 comes from the BMW parts box. The set of components here is the cluster architecture (a.k.a. CLAR) in which BMW erects most of its products from the next series 3 onwards. While most structural work is done through unified steel stampings, some bodywork panels, such as the bonnet and door liners, are aluminum, and the tailgate is made of composite material.
“The way the association worked,” explains Ben Haushalter, Toyota product Manager for SUPRA, “is that the style is 100 percent Toyota. We basically partner with BMW for its platform and engines. Once we decided on the hard points for the in the car, we went down our own paths “.
Those hard points include a 97.2-inch wheelbase. With 172.5 inches in total, the Toyota is 1.8 inches longer than its brother BMW and 5.2 inches shorter than the fourth-generation Supra in a wheelbase that is 3.2 inches poorer. Of course, the old Supra had an almost useless back seat, while this new one is honest enough to omit the configuration of two plus two altogether.
Haushalter says the 50/50 front/rear weight distribution was an important focus of the development program. To achieve this balance, the mass of the cabin is pushed towards the rear axle line and the battery is in the cargo hold. According to the C/D scales, the Supra Turbo of 1993 placed 53.0 percent of its 3480 lbs on the front wheels, thanks largely to the 2JZ iron block. Toyota claims the new car weighs 3397 pounds.
Initially, Toyota will deliver Supras on 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tyres that measure 255/35ZR-19 at the front and 275/35ZR-19 at the rear. Some time after the launch, the 19 will be promoted to an option, and the 18-inch wheels will become standard. Adaptive shock absorbers are also standard.
There are some old school Supra in the headlights and the design of the front fender of the A90, but there are also some Formula 1 cars in the way the central section of the bonnet becomes a pronounced schnoz at the front. And it does not take much to see the echoes of the 2000GT of 1967 in the design of the greenhouse, as it is reduced to a crushed tail. From any angle, the new Supra is voluptuous. But is it beautiful?
“It’s ‘ sculpting the function ‘ “, explains Kevin Hunter of Calty, the Toyota design studio in California that developed the FT-1 concept. “Carving the surface where you didn’t need something allows us not only to reduce the dough but also visually reduce the mass. If you look at all the ins and outs of the front of this car, we try to be efficient as to where we were. Surface. Not only is it beautiful, it also seems efficient “. Well, at least the concept designer thinks it looks good.
The standard color options will include red, blue, silver, white, black, and gray, while the yellow is going to cost $400 additional and a matte gray is an option of $1200. The first 1500 units to arrive in the U.S. They will be designated as Launch edition models, and those cars, available in red, black or white, have red mirror caps, matte black wheels and a plate on the dashboard to indicate them as special.
Toyota also designed the interior by relying on BMW for many of the parts and parts. The information and entertainment system behind the optional 8.8-inch center screen is BMW-based but with new SUPRA-spec graphics. The standard features in the 3.0 basic equipment level include dual zone automatic climate control, rain sensor wipers and a smaller 6.5 inch screen, while the 3.0 Premium setting, for $4000 additional, adds Navigation, leather seats with heating and the largest screen with compatibility Apple display. A JBL premium audio system and some active security features are optional.
BMW, which has loaded with much of the burden of development, has reserved the right to first sales. The Z4 should reach the exhibition halls this spring as a model 2019, with the Supra at some point in the middle of the year as a 2020. The Supra begins in $50.920, close to what BMW will order for a four-cylinder version of its car. A Supra with a German engine, and German bones is a little hard to swallow, but it is still harder to argue against more rear-wheel-drive sports cars in our market, especially when they are driven by inline-six sweets.
“When you reduce it all,” says Bill Fay, vice president of Operations for Toyota, “The SUPRA offers a certain level of emotion to the brand that it cannot bring with trucks and hybrids “. Having driven a prototype, we agree.
