Toyota GR Supra Now Available with Manual Transmission  
 

Toyota has made the GR Supra more accessible to drivers who prefer a manual transmission by making it an available option on their newest limited-production sports car. The manual transmission will be available as an option on the Supra 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and a limited A91-MT Edition model that will be produced for the year 2023 only.

The carmaker debuted the GR Supra in 1992 but has only been offered a standard automatic transmission. That changes with the release of the 2019 model year, which is available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The GR Supra is relatively tame with the automatic transmission, but it becomes more fun to drive when equipped with the manual gearbox. It also has a rev-matching feature, mimicking up-shifts and downshifts for smoother shifts.

There are two available power-train options for the Supra as well. The first is a 3.0-liter inline-six engine that produces 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. There's also a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces a similar amount of power. No specific power ratings have been announced for the 2019 model year, but the previous Supra had a 3.0-liter machine that put out 295 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

The Supra can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about four seconds with the manual transmission, which is about a second quicker than the automatic gearbox. With either transmission option, the car can also go from zero to 100 mph in under 10 seconds. The Supra can also be equipped with two limited-slip differentials for better handling and Toyota's Integrated Dynamics System for more control over steering and throttle input.

The interior is where many people will be looking to modify their cars. Many options include Alcantara, leather, or a suede steering wheel. A 10-speaker audio system is also included, but it can be upgraded to a 14-speaker setup. The Supra is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 for an added layer of active and passive safety features.

Toyota is also making the GR Supra available with many other upgrades to the car. The Premium and Racing trim offer heated seats with memory functions, while the Base only has heated front seats as standard equipment. The vehicles can also be equipped with push-button start as an added convenience.

The Supra is also offered a set of 19-inch wheels, although there are several different options for the wheels. The standard wheels are aluminum and have a five-spoke design, while the optional 20-inch wheels have a six-spoke plan. In addition, the brakes can be upgraded to include four-wheel vented rotors for additional stopping power in emergencies.

In conclusion, the new Supra has plenty of options for drivers who want to make daily drivers more fun. Still, it will be straightforward if it is switched out for an automatic. You can visit our Texas dealership to learn more about the vehicle.
