The 2020 Toyota Supra: A Car That Couldn’t Be More Worth the Wait

The 2000 Toyota Supra GT was proof Toyota could engineer something capable of keeping up, and even surpassing, more traditional brands in the sports car class. Now, after 2 decades, the Supra has reemerged more beautiful, more advanced, and more powerful than ever.

If you’re interested in the 2020 Toyota Supra, continue reading our model overview below. Otherwise, come browse our inventory of new Toyota cars for sale at our showroom in Burlington, NC.

Highlights of the 2020 Toyota Supra

Performance

The 2020 Toyota Supra comes equipped with a 3.0L inline 6-cylinder engine that’s capable of delivering drivers an impressive 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. This punchy engine setup is combined with a twin-scroll turbocharger, variable valve timing, and an electric wastegate to ensure it provides maximum power and responsiveness.

This already powerful performance baseline is combined with a ZF 8HP 8-speed transmission. The placement of this compact, lightweight, and strong system has been calculated to optimize the Supra’s center of gravity so as to guarantee explosive acceleration. 

The Supra isn’t all about power, though. The engineers at Toyota have included an electronically controlled rear differential that uses electronic sensors to collect handling data from throughout the vehicle. The system then sends power to the wheels it determines need it most, ensuring you always feel in control. 

This model also comes available with an adaptive variable suspension system, which reads the road thousands of times per second to stiffen and soften the vehicle’s shocks as needed. The Toyota Supra 3.0 Premium setup comes standard with Brembo® brakes, which work in tandem with 2-piece 348-nanometer vented disc rotors to provide consistent and responsive braking force. 

Safety

The new Supra comes standard with a variety of tools designed to make this sports car as safe as it is sporty. These include a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning with Steering Assist, Auto High Beams, and Speed Limit Information Display. Also included with the purchase of every Supra is a 2 years or 25,000 miles ToyotaCare maintenance plan, including 24-hour roadside assistance.

It also comes available with a Driver Assist Package which includes a supplemental array of safety technologies. These include a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert System, and a Dynamic Radar Cruise Control System which automatically keeps the 2020 Supra a pre-set distance away from the vehicle in front of it. Front and rear parking sensors that anticipate collisions and automatically apply the brakes are also available.

oil change

Does Your Toyota Need an Oil Change?

Whatever car you drive, your engine needs oil to function. At Cox Toyota in Burlington, North Carolina, we value the quality of oil that is put in your engine. Every Toyota is filled with Genuine Toyota motor oil, which helps your car deliver efficient and economical performance, as well as long-term reliability.*

Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change

Motor oil is needed in your engine to keep things running smoothly. As oil gets dirty over time, it becomes less effective. Overheating occurs in your engine if your oil is not clean and is therefore unable to properly lubricate all the engine’s moving parts

Cox Toyota highlights some warning signs that you need an oil change so that you can prevent damage from coming to your car. These signs include:

The check engine light or oil change light comes on

If warning lights in your car keep coming on, it could mean there isn’t enough oil. Different makes and models have different warning lights, so consult your owner’s manual or a mechanic to see what the light means.

The oil is dirty or dark in color

You can test your oil once a month by removing the dipstick, wiping it off, and returning it to the oil tank. Then, remove the dipstick a second time to see the color and translucency of your oil. If it’s too dark, it’s time for an oil change.

There’s a ticking or knocking engine noise

If oil is not properly moving through the engine’s parts, you’ll hear a ticking noise — especially when your engine is starting up. This is because oil is not moving effectively, and different metal pieces of the engine are clanking against one another.

There’s an oil smell inside the car 

If the inside of your car starts to smell like oil, it often means an oil leak has occurred.

There’s exhaust smoke

If black smoke comes out of your car’s tailpipe, it could mean an oil leak has occurred or engine parts are acting up.

It’s important to have regular service appointments to prevent damage from occurring in your engine. The general range is every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, but it’s best to consult both your owner’s manual and a specialist at a Toyota dealership.

Using only Genuine Toyota motor oil, your Toyota specialist knows what filter is best for your specific model. Toyota oil filters are designed to remove dirt from oil so that oil is proactively treated and damage is effectively prevented. 

Schedule Oil Service in Burlington, NC

Schedule an appointment at the Cox Toyota Service Center today to check in with a specialist if you think your oil needs to be changed. Here, you’ll find service specifically tailored to your model. Above all, we want to make sure your car is equipped to perform at its best and last as long as possible.

Man repairing car brakes

Benefits of Regular Car Brake Maintenance Service

When you get behind the wheel of your car, truck, or SUV, the last thing you want to worry about is repairs. Your vehicle can’t do its job properly if it isn’t working properly, and driving without regular maintenance is not only unsafe but costly.

Read on to see why regular brake maintenance is critical to keeping your vehicle on the road.

How Can Brake Service Help?

Brakes are obviously an essential part of your vehicle. Without working brakes, your car simply won’t be able to stop in time. This can cause anything from a small fender bender to a major accident, neither of which is worth the risk.

Regular brake maintenance helps ensure that your brakes engage every time you press on the brake pedal. Because brake pads are designed to wear gradually, if you wait a designated period in between replacing them, you may wind up costing yourself a good deal of money. As your pads wear, they will begin to put stress on other parts of the brake system, including rotors, drums, and calipers. Should any of these parts become damaged, you’re likely looking at adding hundreds of dollars onto your bill.

It’s so important to get your brakes looked at regularly and get maintenance done when wear has begun to show. If you leave the service center with worn brakes, there’s a good chance you won’t be getting them looked at again until it’s too late.

Do I Need New Brakes?

Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to know when brake pads are wearing down. If wear has already begun to take place, you’ll hear it. That’s because your brakes are equipped with a metal shim, called an indicator, which lets off a high-pitched squealing or screeching sound to warn you that replacement pads are needed.

Of course, another sure sign is that your brakes simply aren’t stopping like they used to. Whether they are pulsing or just taking longer to engage, you should make sure to get them looked at. Should you hear a grinding, metal-on-metal sound, it’s likely other components of your brake system have been affected. If this happens, you need to take your vehicle in for service immediately.
