Alongside the updated GR Supra 3.0, Toyota also debuted the new GR Supra 2.0 with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor for the US market.

For 2021, Toyota has given the GR Supra a slew of updates. Starting with the GR Supra 3.0, it continues with the 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six motor. However, it gets a power increase - from the earlier 335bhp to 382bhp. The torque has also gone up from 495Nm to 499Nm. This has been achieved by updating the piston design and adding a new dual-branch exhaust manifold with six ports (instead of two). As a result, the 2021 GR Supra 3.0's 0-100km/h time is expected to drop down to 3.9 seconds. The 8-speed automatic gearbox remains unchanged for 2021.

As for the chassis updates, Toyota has updated the suspension by retuning the dampers. The 2021 GR Supra 3.0 also gets lightweight aluminium braces that connect the strut towers to the radiator for increased lateral rigidity along with front & rear bump stops. The power steering, Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and the active differential have also been reprogrammed to handle the power increase. Inside, the 6.5-inch infotainment unit has been replaced by a bigger 8.8-inch touchscreen unit as standard.

Alongside the 2021 GR Supra 3.0, Toyota also launched the GR Supra 2.0 (in the US market) that's powered by a smaller 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo unit. With the 2.0-litre unit, the GR Supra 2.0 produces 255bhp & 400Nm. The GR Supra 2.0 is new for the US market, although the version had been announced at the time of the fifth-gen (J29/DB) Supra's debut last year in January.
