Toyota hasn’t made the official announcement, but according to CarsDirect, Toyota is going to introduce a new GT version of the 86. The 2018 Toyota GT 86 will add more comfort features that the 86 has been lacking, like heated leather seats, dual-zone climate control and a new 4.2-inch display.
CarsDirect managed to get an order guide for the 2018 Toyota 86, which provides some info about the new GT trim level.
The 86 GT will not be a limited edition trim level like the 2017 Toyota 860 special edition. Inside the interior will be a bit more comfortable with leather applied to the seats, steering wheel and parking brake handle. A push-button start with proximity entry will also be part of the package, plus a new 4.2-inch display that provides extra info, like a g-force meter, a tachometer, torque output and temperature readouts.
On the outside the the 86 GT will get fog lights and “underbody aerodynamic panel,” which is likely a new front splitter.
The 2018 Toyota 86 GT will start at $29,280 if you choose the six-speed manual, while the automatic version is priced at $30,000.
