The biggest news regarding the new Toyota 86 revolves around the introducing of the first-ever 86 TRD Special Edition. You can read all about that by visiting that link, but in this model research page we want to focus on the regular 2019 Toyota 86 Palatine IL. While both the base 86 and the 86 GT don’t feature any updates or new specs & features, it’s every bit as exciting as it was last year.
The 2019 86 and 86 GT offer the same stunning exterior design, the same advanced handling and braking, the same sophisticatedly sporty interior cabin, et cetera. Although new things and changes are always exciting, we’re stoked to be able to offer the 2019 Toyota 86 even without them. It’s every bit as impressive as it was last year, and looks to continue building its own legacy even as the Supra mounts up for its return to market.
Let’s get a bit more specific with things, shall we? Obviously performance is going to be the focal point of the 2019 Toyota 86. Tucked away beneath the hood is a 2.0L flat-four engine designed to deliver 205 horsepower alongside 156 pound-feet of torque, or 5 less on both counts if equipped with an automatic transmission instead of the standard 6-speed manual.
Enhancing the 86’s performance even more are its rear differential and Vehicle Stability Control Full-Off Mode and, in the 6AT model, the fun-to-use paddle shifters. But there’s even more making sure that you enjoy every trip behind the wheel of your 86.
The Hachi Roku rear-wheel drive system, the sport-tuned suspension, and the lightweight architecture with body-strength reinforcement all help make the 2019 Toyota 86 what it is – a vehicle that we can be proud of.
