More and more news are being accumulated about a 2017 Toyota Supra release. All of those rumors have recently started to turn into facts and we are in for the confirmation of the new model any day now. What we hope to see is a completely updated vehicle which is going to address some of the issues that the current one is having and acutely continue on the name of the Supra with another great addition.
As the bigger brother, as some like to call it, the MK3 Supra has already received its release and showcasing this year. As the mentioned vehicle is viewed as a standout, we have received the info that it is going to take some elements from it and adopt it for the 2017 model. There are a lot of parts which are still rumors and have yet to be confirmed but we feel we have enough news that we can share with your through our review.
The new Supra is announced as a completely fresh look on the old version and they are planning to release it as such. The model is going to add some new contemporary features which will upgrade its performance as well. The enhanced technology is also something to consider and is going to be a bit part of the update. We also consider the fact that the car is going to add a hybrid powertrain which is going to make it much more fuel efficient and add a whole new aspect to owning this vehicle.
2017 Toyota Supra exterior concept
We are predicting great things for the exterior design of the 2017 Toyota Supra. This is perhaps going to be one of the better parts of the car and is certainly going to be an advantage when it comes to the looks of the car. What we have learned is that they are going to stick to a similar design from before but are going to update it with some additional design cues. Mainly, it is going to be updated with Formula One inspired lines and make the car considerably faster.
The F1 design is immediately seen with the added air intake openings that are placed front and center the vehicle’s front end. They are going to cool the intercoolers of the car and also bring a cool new look for the vehicle. The front side has also been endowed with some new, long and slender headlights which have LED lighting defining the outer part of the lines. There is an interesting wheel setup as the production models will have 19-inch light-alloy wheels on the front and 20-inch ones in the back.
There is scarce information when it comes to the look of the vehicle on the inside. We have a lot of assumptions though and no real and exact confirmation when it comes to some details. The fact is that the there are not many pictures released about the inside of the car but some things have been leaked nevertheless. We found that the Supra is going to have a minimalistic design when it comes to the interior as they are toning it down a bit and that has been done in order to enable the driver concentrate solely on the driving and not get to do too much with the meddling around with the buttons.
Thus we are certainly going to get a dashboard which is going to be revised and is going through a layout overhaul. The dash is going to add only one 10-inch touch screen which is going to be used only for the basic and most needed information of the vehicle. Actually you do not need much when it comes to controlling your car and what they decided to do here is to make the new car as efficient as possible when it comes to driving and maneuvering at great speeds.
2017 Toyota Supra engine specs
It appears that the 2017 Toyota Supra is going to go through a change when it comes to the powertrain options included under the hood. The vehicle is going to have one option and it is not going to be the familiar inline-6 unit from the original model which is going to be changed now. So make way for the 2.0-liter twin turbo inline-4 engine which generates 360 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. This engine is going to be combined with a two electric motors, where each one is going to power a separate back wheel adding extra boost. Thus the total power output of the car can go well beyond 450 hp in total, as some estimations say it may be. These numbers are actually quite impressive for a hybrid vehicle as the acceleration from 0-60 mph is achieved in around 3.6 seconds and the top speed is estimated at 190 mph.
Release date and price
People who are feeling optimistic predict the 2017 Toyota Supra coming before the 2017 year and actually expect it to be out by the end of this year. We actually feel a little bit realistic when it comes to the release of the car and think that there is no way of seeing the car in production before the middle of 2017, but let’s wait and see what happens in the end. The car has an estimated cost of around $55,000 and is what we assume the bottom price could well end up to be, but better see what inclusions are going to make it on the inside when the car gets to be released and the official rates get to be given.
