 The Toyota 86 is powered by a 2.0L flat-four engine. For the manual transmission 86 models, the engine has been designed to cut down on friction and pumping loss and delivers 205 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. Onboard the automatic transmission models, the engine produces 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque.

In each 86 model, the engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. For the manual transmission vehicles, a short-throw 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission comes standard. For the automatic models, a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) is offered and features sequential shift mode with Dynamic Rev Management and paddle shifters.

The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 86 with automatic transmission is 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, while the manual transmission models deliver 21 city mpg and 28 highway mpg.


 Both the interior and the exterior of the 86 have been redesigned to bring enhanced sporty style and greater function to the road.

Various revamped exterior elements improve the aerodynamics of the 86 and help the car deliver greater overall performance, achieving an impressive drag coefficient of .27 Cd. Features like new LED fog lights, LED daytime running lights, and chrome-tipped dual exhaust further add to the exterior aesthetic.

On the inside, the 86 features new Granlux trim and accents with 86 badging to further distinguish the car's inner style. An ergonomic, leather-wrapped steering wheel includes integrated audio controls. Bolstered sport front seats with silver-esque accent stitching give a premium feel and are designed to hold the driver and front passenger more securely in place during spirited driving.


 State-of-the-art technology features onboard the Toyota 86 include driver-assist amenities like Hill Start Assist Control, a backup camera, and the Star Safety System, which includes:

  • Vehicle Stability Control
  • Traction Control
