What we learned about the 2017 Toyota GT86 4MATIC and what to expect from 2018
Toyota has finally revealed the next-generation 4MATICS, but it’s been delayed again.
The 2018 GT86 will be powered by the same 5.0-liter V-6 as the 2017 model, but will be uprated with a 2.0L twin-turbocharged turbocharged four-cylinder.
The car will be offered in four-door, six-door and eight-door variants, with the base GT86 and the 6MATIC offering only the base 4MATICA.
The 2018 GT 86 will be available in Europe starting at around €40,000 ($50,000) in the UK, €60,000 in France and €80,000 on the continent, according to Autoblog.
While there are no specific price targets for the new GT86, Autoblog speculates the new version will have a higher-revving six-speed manual, with a lower revving four-speed automatic.
It’s unclear if the GT86’s six-speeds will be standard on the new model, or if Toyota will offer a four-speeder version.
It will be interesting to see how these engines perform in the real world, but Toyota says the GT 86’s powertrain will be “much stronger” than its predecessor.
The new GT 86 should be hitting the market sometime this summer, and we’ll have more details soon.
