2025 GR Supra Bids Farwell to the Four-CylinderToyota
  • The 2025 Toyota GR Supra will only be available in 3.0 and 3.0 Premium models, which are both available with a manual transmission.

  • The new base powertrain for the two-seat Supra is BMW’s 3.0-liter turbocharged I6 that makes 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2.0-liter four-cylinder-powered GR Supra will not make its way to the 2025 model year.


Toyota is showing off what’s to come with the ’25 model year GR Supra, though, what’s not coming might be the most interesting update.

The ’25 model year GR Supra won’t include the base model’s turbocharged I4 and will exclusively offer the more potent I6 powertrain. Manual transmissions will still be available, and the year subscription to NASA will also stick around.

Without the entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 on the menu, the Supra will only offer BMW’s turbocharged 3.0-liter I6, sending 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.

Like with all other fifth-generation GR Supras, that power heads exclusively toward the rear axle. The Supra shares its platform and powertrain with the BMW Z4, and both vehicles as contract assembled by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.

Without the entry-level GR Supra 2.0, the year subscription to the National Auto Sports Association might be even more alluring. This one-year membership also includes one free high-performance driving event and discounts toward NASA events.

Now here’s the bad news: Without the GR Supra 2.0 available, the new entry-level model will set you back $57,345, which is $850 more than the outgoing 3.0-liter-powered GR Supra and $9,810 more than the 2.0-liter model.

That’s a tough jump to make for would-be entry-level GR Supra buyers, but stepping down to the more affordable GR 86 is an option, if the GR Supra 3.0 is too expensive.
