The 2ZZ-GE is a sporty 1.8 liter engine based on the 1ZZ-FE, which is currently being mass produced in Japan, USA, and Canada.

Other features such as a reinforced ladder frame, and an intake manifold spacer was utilized for a sporty engine sound.
The 2ZZ-GE delivers maximum power at 7600rpm and maximum torque at 6800rpm.
