Toyota Pulls The Plug On The Supra 2.0-Litre Engine Version



Toyota is pulling the plug on the 2.0-litre engine, a mere three years after introducing the entry-level model. Going forward, the sports car with a fixed metal roof will be offered in the US strictly with the B58 engine.

The Supra was a slow seller for the brand in 2023—moving just 2,652 examples—while other sports cars saw increases. While Toyota doesn’t break down Supra sales by trim or engine, we can imagine the four-cylinder model was the slower mover of the two. The 2024 Supra 2.0 came with a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine making 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It was paired exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission and would get to 60 miles per hour in about 5.0 seconds. Not exactly speedy, but certainly not slow.

Where the four-cylinder Supra made its mark was in weight and efficiency. Weighing in at 3181 pounds, the Supra 2.0 sheds around 200 pounds over its six-cylinder sibling. Additionally, the sports coupe could manage as high as 31 mpg in four-cylinder trim, beating out the 3.0-litre version by over 4 mpg.

With the loss of the four-cylinder, it just got considerably more expensive to buy into the GR Supra lineup. Trim-to-trim, pricing only increased by $850 from 2024 to 2025, though with the $47,535 four-cylinder gone, the $57,345 base 3.0 is now the lowest-cost Supra. The 3.0 Premium trim comes in at a slightly higher $60,495. Thankfully, the six-speed manual transmission is coming back for another year, and it’s a no-cost option in place of the standard eight-speed automatic. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
