Continue reading below to learn more about the highlights and key features of the 2023 Toyota GR86, available for sale here at James Toyota in Timmins, Ontario.


Upgraded Powertrain

All 2023 Toyota GR86 models come equipped with a naturally-aspirated 2.4L flat-four boxer engine that generates 228 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque figure of 184 lb-ft at only 3,700 rpm! A welcome increase from the previous generation GR86’s 200 horsepower boxer engine, this upgraded powertrain features an innovative D-4S dual injection system and a 12.5:1 compression ratio that delivers maximum power.

Track Mode and Full-Off Mode

Put the GR86 into Track Mode and experience the maximum amount of power and excitement.  Track Mode dials back the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system to help you maintain optimal levels of traction, while Full-Off Mode prevents the VSC from kicking in, letting you remain in full control of the vehicle.

Transmission Choices

A driver’s car through and through, owners have the choice of rowing their own gears with a six-speed manual transmission, or they can sit back and let the vehicle do all the heavy lifting with the available paddle-shifted six-speed automatic. Regardless of which transmission you choose, enjoy the handling and thrilling driving dynamics of GR86’s rear-wheel drivetrain.

Three-Spoke Multi-Function Steering Wheel

Its race-inspired three-spoke design allows drivers to easily find the vehicle’s centre line, giving them an added confidence during periods of dynamic driving.

Cockpit-Inspired Interior Layout

The GR86’s driver-oriented cockpit layout makes sure that the driver is the focal point of the vehicle. With vital driving controls slightly angled towards the driver, these optimally positioned controls allow you to focus less on where everything is, and more on the drive itself.




Three Mode Digital Gauge Cluster

Start up the GR86 and marvel at the digital instrument display’s dynamic opening animation. Enjoy the ability to toggle between three different modes – including Track, which gives you real-time read-outs of vital driving data like gear position and engine speed.

8-inch Centre Touchscreen Display

Blind-Spot Monitor with Rear-Cross Traffic-Alert

Equipped on all models of the 2023 Toyota GR86, a Blind-Spot Monitoring (BSM) system with Rear-Cross Traffic-Alert (RCTA) works in tandem with the vehicle’s suite of active safety systems to keep you protected while out on the road. The BSM detects vehicles in your blindspot and alerts you of their presence and the RCTA system warns you of approaching vehicles when in reverse.

Backup Camera

Gone are the days of struggling to park a two-door sports coupe because of minimal outward visibility and obstructing side pillars. Thanks to the GR86’s standard backup camera that’s integrated its electrochromatic rear-view mirror, reversing into and out of tight parking spots is made a breeze.
