Why the 2025 GR Supra Dropped the Four-Cylinder

The Toyota GR Supra continues to evolve, focusing on what makes it an icon in the world of sports cars. For 2025, Toyota has made a significant decision to enhance the Supra's performance and appeal: the discontinuation of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine option. This move allows the GR Supra to fully embrace its powerful 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine, ensuring every model delivers an exhilarating driving experience.

 

Why Drop the Four-Cylinder?

While Toyota has not explicitly stated the reasons behind this decision, it's likely due to shifting market demands and sales performance. The 2024 GR Supra sold 2,652 units, with only a small percentage featuring the four-cylinder engine. The focus on the more popular and powerful inline-six aligns with Toyota's commitment to providing the best possible performance for Supra enthusiasts.

 

What This Means for Performance

By concentrating on the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six, the GR Supra solidifies its status as a true performance car. This engine delivers 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, enabling the eight-speed automatic transmission to achieve a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds. For those who prefer a more hands-on driving experience, the manual transmission option remains available, offering a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds. This focus ensures that every 2025 GR Supra is equipped to deliver a thrilling and dynamic driving experience.

 

Trim Options and Features

With the streamlined engine offerings, the 2025 GR Supra will be available in two trims: the 3.0 and the 3.0 Premium. Both trims come equipped with Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), offering Normal, Sport, and Individual modes to tailor the driving experience to your preferences.

 

The 3.0 trim includes soft-touch Alcantara and leather-trimmed sport seats with power adjustments, a 205-Watt 10-speaker sound system, and an 8.8-inch touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay and a Qi wireless charger are standard, ensuring you stay connected and entertained on the go.

 

The 3.0 Premium trim elevates luxury with optional black or hazelnut-colored leather-trimmed seats and a premium 12-speaker, 500-Watt JBL Hi-Fi system. Safety and convenience features such as full-speed adaptive cruise control (for automatic transmissions), blind spot monitoring, navigation, rear cross-traffic alert, speed limit information, and emergency braking are also included. Toyota Supra Connect provides services like remote maintenance, emergency call, real-time traffic info, and stolen vehicle recovery, enhancing peace of mind.

 

Pricing and Availability

The 2025 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 trim starts at $57,345, while the 3.0 Premium trim begins at $60,495. Expect to see this refined and focused sports car at dealerships in the fall, ready to deliver an unmatched driving experience.

 

Looking Ahead

By dropping the four-cylinder option, Toyota reinforces the GR Supra's commitment to performance and driving pleasure. The 2025 GR Supra is poised to continue its legacy as a top-tier sports car, offering enthusiasts a powerful and refined driving experience. Whether you're a track enthusiast or simply enjoy spirited drives, the 2025 GR Supra is sure to impress.
