Toyota GR Supra Now Available with Manual Transmission  

Toyota’s premier sports car was already a blast to drive. With the arrival of an optional manual transmission, the 2023 Toyota GR Supra now offers even more excitement. Driving purists will love the enhanced control and connection that a manual transmission offers. Here’s what you need to know.

Six-Speed Manual Transmission

The GR Supra’s base turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission. However, you can now pair the car’s more potent turbocharged straight-six engine with a traditional manual gearbox. This six-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission is specifically designed to handle the engine’s high torque output.

A rev-matching feature seamlessly matches engine rpm when downshifting, thus ensuring smoother shifting. To promote snappy acceleration off the line, Toyota gives the manual transmission a shorter 3.46 final drive ratio. Expect a blistering 0-60 mph time of around 4.2 seconds. Because the GR Supra’s traction and braking have been honed for operation with a manual transmission, there are no stability issues when exiting a corner on the throttle.

Engineers also made sure the manual shifter was easy to grip from the driver’s cockpit. The shift knob feels perfect in the driver’s hand. Whether cruising along the freeway or aggressively taking curves on the track, you’ll experience a strong sense of control. The manual-equipped GR Supra continues to offer some of today’s best driver-assist technologies, including high-speed cruise control and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.
