Toyota confirms Supra will get a four-cylinder engine

By Faiming_low on 18 Jul 2018

Attached Image While it is known that the new Toyota Supra will be powered by a six-cylinder unit, there has been no confirmation on whether the car will be getting another engine option.

But it seems like Supra will be getting another engine as Road & Track has just gotten a confirmation from Supra Chief Engineer, Tetsuya Tada, that the Japanese coupe will be using a four-cylinder engine in the base variant.

According to the article, the new A90 Supra will use the BMW-sourced turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder B48B20 engine producing 262bhp while the six-cylinder will be a turbocharged 3.0litre B58B30 engine with 335bhp. Both variants will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Also in the article, Tada mentioned that the smaller-engined Supra will be one that has a better weight distribution and a sharper-feeling turn-in.


Die-hard Supra fans who want to swap their engine for the 2JZ engine might want to heed Tada's advice - "Please buy the four-cylinder. It will be cheaper."

At this age and time, top end Toyota sports cars has such poor horsepower figures. Think will have problem racing or catching up with daily street sports cars like WRX, CTR etc let alone face the NSX. Power figures so old school.
