What is the new Toyota Supra engine?
The Toyota Supra has a long history dating back to the late 1970s. In July 2018, Toyota gave a sneak peek of the new Supra in England. In January 2019, the new 2020 Supra model made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. We will talk about what the new Toyota Supra engine features, but first, let’s take a walk down memory lane.
History of the Toyota Supra
The Toyota Supra was first built in 1979 as a part of the Toyota Celica line of cars. Supra means to “surpass or go beyond.” Throughout the years, there were modifications made to this car until, in 1986, the Supra car was separated from the Celica line and developed into its own line of vehicles. Unfortunately, this only lasted thirteen years. In 1999, the Supra was no longer in production.
Once the Supra was no longer in production, many employees were hoping to someday bring the sports car line back into production. In 2012, this someday became a reality as talks about bringing back a sports car line began.

The new 2020 Toyota Supra has a 3-liter straight six engine twin-scroll turbocharger. It contains 335 horsepower and 365 pound-foot of torque. The Supra has an eight-speed transmission, and it is estimated the 0-60 acceleration is 4.1 seconds.
