There’s a whole new year ahead of us, and we want to make 2014 one of our best by kicking things off with a big announcement – at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, we’ll be debuting the all-new Scion Monogram Series tC and Scion Monogram Series FR-S for the first time! Both limited edition Scion Monogram Series vehicles will be available at Scion dealerships beginning In February, and will include a long list of exclusive features at an exceptional price.
Scion Monogram Series FR-S
The Scion Monogram Series FR-S will see a limited production run of 2,000 models, and will be available in all standard FR-S Exterior color options, with both six-speed manual and six-speed automatic with Dynamic Rev Management technology available as transmission options.
In addition to the rear-wheel drive sports coupe’s standard feature list, the exterior of the Monogram Series FR-S will also include a color-keyed rear spoiler, HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights, as well as heated outside mirrors to keep visibility clear regardless of the weather.
To complement its exterior features, the cabin of the Scion Monogram Series FR-S has been modified to include Smart key with push button start, heated leather trim seats with Alcantara® inserts, a frameless rearview mirror, and carpet cargo mat lining the floor of the trunk.
The standard 5.1” Scion Display Audio system found in all 2014 Scions has also been upgraded to a BeSpoke Premium Audio unit with navigation and connected services, while dual-zone automatic climate controls round out the list of additional features we’ve added to the Scion Monogram Series FR-S.
We think you’ll like the additions we’ve made to the limited edition Monogram Series FR-S, and the added utility they deliver. The manual and automatic transmissions will MSRP for $27,400 and $28,500 respectively*, representing a value of over $1,900.
Scion Monogram Series tC
The Scion Monogram Series tC will also see a limited production run, with a total of 2,500 units set to be produced. Like the FR-S, the Monogram Series tC will be available to purchase in all standard 2014 Scion tC Exterior color options, with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic with Dynamic Rev Management.
To give the Scion Monogram Series tC an even more aggressive look, we’ve added a color-keyed low-profile rear spoiler to the trunk, further complimenting the car’s body lines. For the first time ever, we’ve given the tC a new rear window wiper as a standard option, which will serve to keep rear windows clear during inclement weather conditions. The new additions help compliment the car’s body lines, and increase functionality while also serving as a preview of the changes we’ve made to its interior.
Opening the door, you’ll find new heated leather trimmed seats with perforated inserts, along with a leather shift knob. Both the interior door trim and center console lid have also been upgraded, the latter with accent stitching. Carpet flooring and a cargo mat have also been included as standard features in the Monogram Series Scion tC.
Along the dash, you’ll find our BeSpoke Premium Audio system with navigation and connected services, and next to it, a push start button with integrated Smart Key functionality. All said, the Scion tC’s already great value has been made even better with its Scion Monogram Series additions, and we think you’ll agree once you get behind the wheel.
With the additions, MSRP for the Scion Monogram Series is set at $21,400 with a manual transmission, and $22,400 with an automatic, representing a value package of over $1,500.
