And DCH Toyota of Oxnard can't wait to see the serious perks that the new blood, donned the 860 Special Edition in a March 13 Toyota press release, will showcase under-hood and atop. Because we already love the 2017 Toyota 86 base. Its 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder DOHC engine's got the horsepower, 205 at up to 7,000 rpm, and up to 156 lb-ft of torque at 6400 rpm to really get us around, and with a rear-wheel drivetrain and paddle shifter-equipped 6-speed auto transmission with Dynamic Rev Management to keep it a smooth operator. And sport-inspired creature comforts? Just slide into the 6-way driver and 4-way front-passenger seats, lean back against integrated headrests, prop the knee cushions and sit back and enjoy for yourself. Might as well look cool doing it, too. 17-inch twisted-spoke alloy wheels, front fender-mounted vortex generators and 86 badge, chrome-tipped dual exhaust, and an aerodynamics-enhancing rear bumper lower diffuser make that happen.

But the new 2017 860 Special Edition speeds to further victories. Halo White and exclusive Supernova Orange hue options with black body stripe contrast will really grab attention, directing it to a unique aerodynamic underbody panel and rear spoiler, 17-inch alloy wheels and piercing LED fog light accents. Sport's on the inside, too, with 860's 4.2-inch multi-information display keeping you apprised of G-force meter, stop watch, horsepower, torque curve, engine coolant and oil temperature and mpg metrics while you recline in front seats now heated and in contrasting black leather with orange stitching, a style cue extending also to the leather-trimmed steering wheel, shift boot and parking brake lever. Premium features also abound, with smart key with push-button start, touch-activated door unlock capability, and cabin-customizing dual-zone automatic climate control for starters.

With release just around the corner, our 1631 Auto Center Drive dealership is keeping an eye out. In the meantime, we've got more than a few of the already laudable 2017 Toyota 86 in stock. Care to take one for a test drive? Whether you're coming in from Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Santa Barbara, Ventura or the Port Hueneme Navy Base, we'll be glad to set you up. Stop by and visit!
