Lexus may revive the IS F sport sedan in 2022

January 3, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

According to preliminary information, the basic version Lexus IS F will receive a 2.4-liter engine. The “charged” version with the F index will receive about 415 horses.

According to rumors, in 2022, Lexus will introduce a new generation of IS sedans, and in parallel with this, will revive the line of “charged” models with the “F” index. While there is little information, but it is assumed that the model will receive a new platform on the modular architecture from Toyota.

In the base case, the model will receive a 2.4-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 320 horsepower. The company will also prepare a hybrid, economical version with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and a 183-horsepower electric motor. The debut of the car can pass already in 2020, and sales will begin only in 2021.

But the most interesting will be the “charged” version, which will appear no earlier than 2022.

 It is assumed that as a power unit will be installed 3.5-liter biturbo V6 engine, capable of developing up to 415 horses. In tandem with the engine will work automatic transmission at 10 speeds. It is possible that the Lexus IS F will only receive rear-wheel drive, or it will be available as an option.

Also note that the recent registration of the new name of the Lexus UX300e may mean that the company is still preparing to release an electric crossover, although it has previously denied this.
