2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Debuts With 5.0L V8
It should hit the dealership in the fourth quarter.
The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance debuts with Lexus’s familiar 5.0-liter V-8 engine. Although it is not a full F model it still is hardcore.
The naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 generates 472 horsepower (352 kilowatts) at 7,100 rpm and 395 pound-feet (535.5 Newton-meters) of torque at 4,800 revs. The power goes to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic. With all the power, the performance sedan can accelerate from zero to 96 km/h in 4.5 seconds and deliver an estimated fuel economy of 24 mpg.
It weighs 3,891 pounds (1,765 kilograms), which is 143 pounds (64.86 kilograms) extra than the current IS 350 F Sport.
The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance comes equipped with the Dynamic Handling Package consisting of an adaptive suspension and Torsen limited-slip differential. In addition, it has a Yamaha-supplied rear performance damper for boosted structural rigidity.
The new IS 500F comes with standard Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 that makes it a highly safe car. Expect it to contain pedestrian detection, emergency steering assist, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and a lot more.
The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance should hit the dealership in the fourth quarter. We do not know the pricing yet, so stay tuned for more details.
