Scion FR-S hits US dealerships image

Scion has recently announced that the all-new FR-S sports car has hit the dealerships in the United States, across the country.

The Scion FR-S, which is actually the over-seas brother of the Toyota GT 86 or the Subaru BRZ, is once again being placed into the spotlights, this time with the car manufacturer announcing that the sports car has just hit the dealerships in the United States, where it has a starting price of 24,200 USD. The Scion FR-S will be a great alternative to those who can’t afford a Camaro or Mustang over-seas but still want to drive a rear-wheel drive sports car for half the money.

“The incredibly positive buzz surrounding the FR-S has generated an impressive list of hand-raisers and pre-sold orders. Scion is thrilled that the FR-S is now available throughout its strong network of about 1,000 dealers. We can’t wait for performance driving enthusiasts to get into the FR-S because we know that they are going to love it”, said the Scion VP, Jack Hollis.

As a quick reminder, the Scion FR-S is powered by the Subaru borrowed 2.0 liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Boxer engine, equipped with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system. The unit is developing a total output of 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6,600 rpm. According to the car manufacturer, the engine in the Scion FR-S can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard or to a six-speed automatic as optional.
