At All Star Scion we love to keep our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Pretty soon we will be saying goodbye Scion forever and welcoming all its vehicles as Toyota’s. So we want to introduce to you the 2017 Toyota GT86 that will replace the Scion FR-S.
Toyota has redesigned the Scion FR-S to make it into its own Toyota GT86. With a larger front grille, LED headlamps and turn signals, a reshaped bumper, and LED tail lamps, Toyota has surely succeeded in redesigned the FR-S. This complete make-over has made this vehicle even more sleeker and stylish.
The brand new GT86 will get a retuned suspension that will improve handle. The GT86 will still keep the FR-S’s 2.0L tubro-4 engine that delivers 200 horsepower. However, this 6-speed manual gearbox model’s engine, will produce 205 horsepower and 156 foot-pounds of torque.
Toyota wanted to redesign the FR-S to make it more comfortable. They added a new “Grandlux” soft-touch material that will surround the door trims and instrument panels. Different upholstery will be placed on the seats with silver stitching. The GT86 will be getting a brand new sports wheel with integrated audio control and bigger paddle shifters.
The 2017 Toyota GT86 can hold 4 passengers. Both the driver and front passenger will be able to enjoy sufficient head and legroom. Even though the rear truck will be slightly smaller, the split-folding rear seats can help expand this area.
The GT86 comes fully equipped with some of the latest and greatest technology features including:
- Rearview Camera
- Voice Recognition
- Automatic Headlights
- 7-inch infotainment system with the BeSpoke system that offers navigation, Smartphone apps and Bluetooth
- Power adjustable driver’s seat
As sad it is to say goodbye to Scion, we are anxiously awaiting the new Toyota arrivals. The 2017 Toyota GT86 is set to arrive in stores around mid-2016.
