1987 Toyota Celica Overview

The 1987 Toyota Celica remained unchanged from the previous year, when it had been totally redesigned. Now sporting front-wheel drive and a rounder body, the 1987 Celica was a different animal from the previous generation.

The 1987 Celica came with a 2.0-liter, 116-horsepower engine, with the exception of the GT-S, which had 135 horses. The coupe and the hatchback were all available as the ST, GT, or GT-S models. The convertible came as a GT. The GT-S engine got an upgrade to 135-horsepower. For fuel economy, the 1987 Celica got about 26 to 34 mpg, depending on engine and transmission.

Drivers of the 1987 Celica love it for its reliability, and say that with good care the car will run for hundreds of thousands of miles. Owners of '87 Celicas also say that the front-wheel drive means they handle well in inclement weather. Many owners have had problems with rust.
