The entire Toyota lineup will be on display at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show taking place from Feb. 9-18, including the new 2020 GR Supra that made its world debut in Detroit.

The Supra was developed by the Toyota GAZOO Racing organization and inspired by the Calty-designed FT-1 Concept first presented in Detroit in 2014. It will go on sale in the summer of 2019 and the first 1,500 sold will be special Launch Edition models (the very first of which has already sold at auction for $2.1 million).

Boasting a turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, the new Supra sends 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It was designed with a low center of gravity to optimize precision and agility, and will be available starting at $49,990.

Though the Supra is likely to steal the spotlight at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota is nonetheless hoping some of its other models will grab your attention. One of the most notable is the 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition, which celebrates the vehicle’s 60+ year history with exclusive vintage and modern styling cues like bronze-colored, forged-aluminum BBS wheels.

Toyota will also show off the new 2019 RAV4, the Prius AWD-e, and a strange concept vehicle called the Tundra PIE Pro, which uses hydrogen fuel cell technology to bake pizzas. The truck’s bed features an entire self-contained kitchen, including a fridge, conveyor oven, and computer-guided articulating robot arms — because hey, doesn’t your kitchen have those?
