2023 Toyota GR86 for Sale in Smithfield, RI
Trims and Powertrain
The 2023 Toyota GR86 is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car made in two trims: the Base and Premium. Their 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine produces a satisfying amount for this vehicle class: 228 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, though a six-speed automatic is available. With the manual stick, the ’23 GR86 achieves a zero-to-60 time of 6.1 seconds. With the automatic, that number increases ever so slightly to 6.6 sec.
On top of its impressive handling, the ’23 GR86 will please buyers with its standard amenities. The base trim’s exterior presents auto-leveling LED headlights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and remote keyless entry, but it’s the performance attributes that its potential drivers are most interested in. Those include 17-inch wheels with Michelin Primacy HP summer tires, a Torsen limited-slip differential, a multi-link rear suspension with a mounted stabilizer bar, and GR circuit-tuned coil springs and shock absorbers. This trim also shows off a black mesh grille, GR86 badges, and a dual chrome-tipped exhaust. Meanwhile, the base’s silver-accented and driver-centric interior has push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a couple of USB charging ports, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster with performance instrumentation, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and shift knob, a fixed center console with two front cupholders, and sport front bucket seats with black side bolsters and fabric inserts.
The Premium adds an adaptive front lighting system, a color-keyed rear duckbill spoiler, 18-inch matte-black wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires, illuminated vanity mirrors, a fixed center console with one open cupholder and two hidden cupholders, aluminum sport pedals, and heated front sport seats with synthetic-leather bolsters and faux-suede inserts.
All 2023 GR86s have a backup camera that displays the vehicle’s projected path on the screen. Toyota also installs some active driver aids in conjunction with the automatic transmission. This bundle, called the GR86 Active Safety Suite, contains a pre-collision braking system, pre-collision throttle management, lead vehicle start alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Rear parking sensors and reverse automatic braking come standard as well, but the Premium alone gets blind-spot detection.
Multimedia and Connectivity
Despite being a performance-focused coupe, the ‘23 GR86 packs in a modern infotainment setup that’s complete with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a six-speaker sound system. The Premium gets all of the above plus a more powerful six-speaker sound system with an amplifier.
