Toyota Celica

Quick Info

The Toyota Celica name (pronounced /ˈsɛlɨkə/) has been applied to a series of popular coupes made by the Japanese company Toyota. The name is ultimately derived from the Latin word coelica meaning "heavenly" or "celestial".

The First Generation Celica was released to the market in 1970,at 1970 Tokyo Motor Show in October.It was a "cut-down" version of Toyota’s supercar, the 2000GT, so it was a relatively affordable sports car.

The Second Generation Celica was released in 1978,(production began in late 1977) and was again available in both ST and GT trim levels.

The Third Generation came in production in 1982. Styling was changed considerably from previous models and power was now provided by 2.4-liter engines.

The Fourth Generation was introduced in 1986 and the Celica changed completly. It was now an all-new vehicle with front wheel drive, a rounded, flowing body and new 2.0 L four-cylinder engines. In North America, the Celica was now available in ST, GT and GT-S trim, all available as either coupe or liftback models, with the GT being offered up in a soft-top convertible coupe as well.

The Fifth Generation Celica was introduced in September 1989.They received revised styling, upgraded wheels and tires, and more power.

The Sixth Generation of The Celica was only available in ST and GT trims in the US for the 1994 model year, but the addition of the optional "sports package" to the GT produced GT-S-like handling.

The Seventh Generation was introduced in 2000. It was very close to the XYR concept with the exception of the front bumper and rear spoiler. The 2000 Celica was an element of Toyota Project Genesis, an effort to bring younger buyers to the marque in the United States.
