The 2016 Toyota Supra is expected to be released by the end of the next year. The new model will be full of surprises. To start with, the new model will have a very attractive appearance. The new exterior design will be based on the FT-1 Concept, but it will also have some details reserved for this model exclusively. The design is bold, modern and very interesting. In addition, the new model will have a new platform, and it will use a lot of new technologies and approaches in its production. All of this will result in improved performance, which has always been the strongest suit for this car. As for the interior, the information is scarce, but there should be more reports about it as the release date approaches. Moreover, the 2016 Toyota Supra will offer two possible powertrain setups. One of them will be a plug-in hybrid, while the other will use the conventional and famous V6 mill. All in all, the new model will be stunning and its specs will surely impress you, whether it is about its looks or abilities.
2016 Toyota Supra Design
The 2016 Toyota Supra will be designed following the FT-1 Concept. The new model will look impressive. Its overall body shape is fluent and very aerodynamic, which also contributes to the car’s performance, but the edgy details and sharp corners make the car look really fierce and aggressive. The designers managed to make the vehicle look dominant and futuristic without making it too assailant, while on the other hand, they designed the Supra to be unique, outstanding and elegant and the same time. In addition, the new model brings a new platform as well, aside from its new looks. The 2016 Toyota Supra will use the same lightweight platform that underpins the BMW Z models. Also, this coupe will be made mostly out of light materials such as aluminum and carbon fibers, which will lower the model’s weight and thus improve its performance.
Powertrain: Plug-in Hybrid & V6 Engine
As for the powertrain, the 2016 Toyota Supra will offer two possible setups. The first one is the plug-in hybrid that will consist of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit developed by BMW and Toyota’s electric motor. This setup’s specifications are unknown at the moment, though some sources claim it will be almost as powerful as the conventional one. Whether this estimation is true or not, we are confident that the setup will not be any less impressive than those of the competition. The plug-in hybrid powertrain will use an all-wheel drive. As for the other option, the 2016 Toyota Supra will offer a V6 engine that will generate around 400 horsepower and that should use the same drive mode as the latter. Other details about the future powertrain options are unavailable at the moment.
2016 Toyota Supra Release & Price
The 2016 Toyota Supra should be released by the end of 2015. As for the price, the entry level should cost around $45,000. Bear in mind, though, that this is not official information, so we will have to wait for the release of the car before knowing its exact price.
