A Toyota 86 Redesign is on the Way
This model year, Toyota has rebranded and upgraded the outgoing Scion FR-S model to make it a more stylish, well-equipped, and high performance sports coupe in the form of the all-new 2017 Toyota 86. There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to the new Toyota 86, but by recent accounts it appears that Toyota is already doing serious work on a full redesign of the Toyota 86. At Toyota of Naperville, we’re truly excited about the possibilities, and here’s what we know so far.
What We Know About the Toyota 86 Redesign
At a time when many manufacturers are discontinuing or compromising the capabilities of small performance coupes, Toyota is reasserting its commitment to racing performance with an announcement about an upcoming release of an all-new Toyota 86 model. While the full extent of the details are still sparse, it appears that the model will be made in collaboration with Subaru, and it will feature a horizontally opposed boxer engine that will help it to achieve a low center of gravity and equal weight distribution between the left and ride side. From what we know so far, it also appears that we should expect a coupe-only version of this model, as Toyota has stated that a convertible rendition is unlikely to appear.
Toyota 86 Redesign Release Date
The redesign of the Toyota 86 is currently under way, but don’t expect it to arrive for a little while still. From what we know so far, it appears that the all-new Toyota 86 should be making its way to dealerships sometime around the end of 2018 or early 2019.
