View Full Version : Difference between GT4 & All tracs

01-29-2008, 01:08 AM
Ok so i have a somewhat idea what the diffrences are but what are the diffrence's between the GT4 and the alltrac, I have a guy on a local car forum sayin
"There appears to be a lot of mis-information in this thread about the Celica GT-Four/All-Trac...
First off, the GT-Four and All-Trac are the same car. All-Trac = USDM - GT-Four = JDM, EDM, UKDM, AUDM.
Also, the 5th gen Celica only had two types of hoods, the standard hood sans-scoop and then the GT-Four/All-Trac hood with the central scoop and two small side vents. There was no difference between GT-Four and All-Trac hoods, as I metioned, they are the same car." :lolhittin

And i know thats not true,the hoods are different the bumpers are different or is that just with the CS edition?, i just want to get some more info b4 i try to re-inform the mis informed

there were 3 hoods (alltrac scoop, cs/rc/gp.a vent, regular)

the alltrac bumper was an option on the later spec 5th gen gts

what is this local car forum by the way?

lol just my small town local car forum, rather not post it so i dont start anything, some guy in my town bought a gt and has plans of "doing it up" so he started a build thread, and theres ppl chiming in with ideas and all this info which i mainly have to correct them on

ahh okay, I've been looking for a GTA based forum and haven't seen any non-specific ones

Alltrac is north american for GT-4

Same exact car.

We just dont get the other trims. So youll never see a CS ALLTRAC, youll however see a CS GT4.

okies that helps, i pree much answered my own questions as i made this thread as well...only the GT4 came with the CS edition, with the differnt hood,bumper, differently tuned ECU and the WTA intercooler

pretty much agree with what Luni said. ST185 homogolation version rear tail gate badges/decals read as follows:

# The UK & European market : TOYOTA CELICA turbo 4WD Carlos Sainz Limited Edition.

The owner of this car has renoved the Carlos Sainz Limited Edition exterior decal


# The Japanese market : CELICA GT-FOUR RC


# The Australian market : TOYOTA GT-FOUR GRP A RALLYE


However the Limited Edition Plaques that feature on transmission tunnel / under bonnet (hood) are printed Carlos Sainz on all versions.... i think :? >>> i'll dig out some pics and link to photobucket later.

you guys are so darn smart!

01-29-2008, 03:35 AM
Here is how I always understood it.

90-93 = alltrac
94+ = GT-Four

01-29-2008, 03:36 AM
So if you guys are so smart, WHY IS THIS IN OT.

ST165 All-trac, Celica turbo 4WD and GT-Four worldwide did not have any bonnet vents, scoops or bonnet spoilers.

ST185 All-trac, Celica turbo 4WD and GT-Four worldwide were made with bonnet scoops and 2 small vents (ATA intercoolers). Only the ST185 wta charge cooler homogolation versions featured the 3 bonnet vents (1 large, 2 small), non functioning cambelt scoop and bonnet spoiler.

ST205 was designated GT-Four in all markets (wta charge cooler) and featured a bonnet vent and non functioning cambelt scoop. Additional bonnet spoiler featured on homogolation version and (UK?) cars.

Not strictly Celica but widely regarded as continuing the GT-Four line up:

ST215 was designated Caldina GT-T (bonnet scoop ATA)

ST246 was designated Caldina GT-Four (bonnet scoop ATA)

The narrow body GT-Four Rally (E-ST185-BLMVZ) with close ratio E152F is rare. I know of just 3 imported into the UK.


The narrow bodied GT-Four and GT-Four V (E-ST185-BLMVZ) with E150F were produced in larger numbers. Quite a few of the latter types have made there way to the UK.




- GT-Four; narrowbody, ceramic turbine
- GT-Four rally: no electric stuff, narrowbody, short ratio box, 14" steel wheels.
- GT-Four V: (V --> "Veloce" = speed) no electric stuff, narrowbody
- GT-Four A: (A --> "Adovansu" = advanced) widebody, 15", yellow headlights, metal turbine
- GT-Four; widebody, metal turbine (All-trac in US, turbo4wd in Europe)
- GT-Four CS/RC/Grp A Rallye: Top model with the known extra's

I'm working on a specified infopage for my website with all details.

another good link:

Regarding the RC etc scoops - actually the cambelt scoop is functional from stock and connects to the cam belt via a small rubber sealed intake on the cam cover, whereas the big vent is non-functional and is covered by the sound deadening panel. Most of the RC's you see around have the sound deadening panel removed - for obvious reasons!

Also interior badging on UK & Japanese models use the same Carlos Sainz plaque, whereas the Aussie Grp A Rallye model has a unique badge.

Other differences between RC?CS/GrpA models include bigger axles and thicker torque plates slightly different struts than the ATA models.
I keep finding minute differences in quite a few parts on the Rc vs standard.

What about "Turbo AWD" for the Canadian folks?

PS I'm kidding. :D
