After waiting for what feels like an eternity, theis almost ready to hit the road. We’re still waiting to drive the thing — in something other than , anyway — but now, one more piece of the puzzle has been revealed.
According to a sharp-eyed Twitter user, the official 2020 Toyota Supra fuel economy numbers have been released, which we verified on the EPA’s website Wednesday. They aren’t too shabby either: 24 mpg in the city, 31 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. That’s with a 335-horsepower, turbocharged inline-six engine underhood, managed by an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Those are pretty competitive numbers. At its best, a 2019 Ford Mustang achieves EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined — that’s with the 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The most efficient 2019 Chevrolet Corvette carries EPA ratings of 16 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined, though of course, it also comes with a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 under its hood.
The BMW Z4, with which the new Supra shares most of its underpinnings, hasn’t been EPA-rated in its six-cylinder M40i guise just yet. The less-powerful (), four-cylinder sDrive30i model, however, is estimated to return 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.
As always, your mileage may vary.
