Reports from Japan have come in stating that the all-new second-generation Toyota 86 will not be coming with a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine. While earlier reports have stated that it would be coming with a turbo, newer reports now say that the all-new vehicle will not be going down the turbo route. Instead, both brands have opted to stick with a natural aspiration for the new power plant. The 2.4-liter engine, however, will be getting an increase in power coming from 203hp and 212 Nm of torque to 217hp and 240 Nm of torque.
While these figures aren’t staggering it still sticks with the theme of the 86/BRZ being a balanced handling vehicle. Even with the new body and chassis of the vehicle, the 2.4-liter engine should prove to be more than ample for the vehicle.
According to the Japanese media, Subaru, Toyota's partner for the new vehicle, is already calling for the last orders for the current generation BRZ by July 20 of this year. This suggests that both brands are already ready to put the new vehicle into production. It also suggests that the launch of the all-new model should be coming soon after that timeframe and will be expected to launch early in 2021. This makes the new model’s arrival come roughly 9-years after the first generation’s initial launch.
Reports have also come in about the all-new vehicle’s chassis. It appears that it will not be riding on Toyota’s TNGA platform but instead it will be utilizing a derivative of the current generation’s architecture. The dimensions of the all-new vehicle have also been released. It now comes in with a length of 4250mm which makes it 10mm longer than before, 1780mm in width which makes it 5mm wider, and 1315mm in height which makes it 5mm shorter than before. Its wheelbase, however, remains the same as the previous generation. With the new engine comes a new pair of gearboxes, the all-new 86/BRZ will be getting a new 6-speed manual transmission and an 8-speed automatic to utilize all that the 2.4L engine has to offer.
It is important to note that Toyota nor Subaru have released official statements about the new models but if these Japanese reports prove to be authentic then the all-new vehicle could make for an interesting new vehicle. Official details from both companies should come out later this year. While the official release is still a year away there is no official word yet from either Toyota or Subaru Philippines if they will be bringing in the all-new model into the country. With a release date set for the first half of 2021, the Philippines could be getting the all-new model much later in the year or in early 2022.
