The three rear- wheel drive sports coupes that is dubbed as the 86/GT86, BRZ and FR- S are indeed supported by the same 2.0 liter flat- four that is so good for 200 ponies and 151 lb- ft or 2015 Nm of peak torque. That statement was stated by the three automakers, Toyota, Subaru and Scion, commenting on their co- developed vehicles.
The usual ritual commonly happen today to treat any newly debuted model is to held an independent testers and the people at the Edmund’s Insideline had toke the North American market 2013 Scion FR- S on the Dyno to prove how many numbers it would presented.
And guess how many output it produces. Well, the folks get an optimum output of 173 ponies at 7,000 rpm and 143 lb- ft or 194 Nm of peak torque at around 2,800 rpm. Edmunds knew that the Subaru- sourced engine is able to figure out a flat 140 lb- ft or 190 Nm of torque from 4,500 and 6,500 rpm. Being different with the automakers’ figures that measured at the flywheel, the output figured here was measured at the wheels.
Edmunds was slightly overwhelmed with the flat four’s consistency. The news site stated that on the Dyno of any vehicles in recent memory, the car figured the most repeatable runs and each trace covers the previous one exactly.
