When the Toyota GR Supra came for its sophomore year in 2021, there were significant changes to be found throughout the model lineup. The 2022 GR Supra doesn’t have as many drastic changes but is not without its own slew of changes for the model year.
Recap on what changed from 2020 to 2021
As mentioned, the changes from the 2020 Supra to the 2021 Supra were quite drastic. After just one year on the market, in 2021, the GR Supra gained a 14% power increase from 335 horsepower to 382 horsepower. Torque was also increased by 3 from 365 to 368 lb-ft of torque. Uniquely, more power did not translate to more noise as the 2020 Supra does sound like the more angry pissed-off model.
The 2021 Supra also had some chassis refinements built in such as some new aluminum strut braces, front and rear bump stops, and some damper tuning for good measure. Overall, between 2020 and 2021, do you want a faster Supra? or a more angry Supra?
Heated Seats Are Standard in the 3.0
While the 2022 model I tested was a 3.0 Premium which had heated seats for 2022 heated seats will be standard in the regular 3.0 model as well.
New Red Leather Option for the Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium
Perhaps the biggest change for the 2022 Supra is the new leather interior option. For 2022, you can choose between the black leather interior or the new red leather interior. The red leather can be found on the driver door, center console, driver knee area, and both passenger and driver seats.
Premium Audio Toyota GR Supra Models Now Have Full-screen Apple Car Play Compatibility
For models which have the premium audio option, which on 2.0 and regular 3.0 models comes via the Safety & Technology Package, if you are so inclined to be using an Apple device, Apple Car Play now has full-screen capabilities.
Free Track Day
This change has been getting sprinkled out throughout the performance vehicle lineup at Toyota like for the GR86 and likely for the GR Corolla as well. Every 2022 Toyota GR Supra comes with a free one-year membership to the National Auto Sport Association (NASA). The biggest perk that free membership comes with is a free High-Performance Driving Event (HPDE) aka a free track day.
