April 5th, 2021 by

The 2022 Toyota GR 86 has finally been unveiled and will be available in dealerships across the nation later this year. If you’re eager to learn more about what this bad boy has to offer, then you’re in luck. You know Toyota of N Charlotte has your back on all things automotive. We don’t plan on keeping you out of the loop, so check out the details you’re looking for regarding this vehicle.

First things first, you may have noticed that this Toyota sports car has added GR to the name. GR stands for Gazoo Racing so it’ll obviously be a great choice if you’re trying to take on the race track. While the GR part in the name is pretty big, it’s not the only thing that has changed in this N Charlotte Toyota sports car. For the second generation of this vehicle, it’s been completely redesigned thanks to the collaboration with Subaru. If you take a look at the BRZ, you’ll see the resemblance. Anyhow, it’s safe to say that the two automotive companies have outdone themselves with the Toyota GR 86. No complaints on our part when it comes to design, performance, and technology.

Toyota of N Charlotte can inform you details on the new sports car, the Toyota GR 86.
