EIGHT-SPEED SPORT DIRECT-SHIFT TRANSMISSION

Lexus IS

EIGHT-SPEED SPORT DIRECT-SHIFT TRANSMISSION

Brace yourself for an uninhibited driving experience. For added engagement and lightning-fast gear changes, every IS features steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The IS all-wheel drive models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, while rear-wheel drive models boast the same quick-shifting, eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission used in Lexus F models. In addition to including downshift throttle-blipping for more precise shifting and quicker response, the rear-wheel drive IS models are so advanced that their shifting varies with G-forces, allowing a lower gear to be held throughout the turn, providing maximum response when accelerating out.

V6 POWER

Lexus IS
Boasting impressive horsepower, the 3.5-liter V6 engine in the 255-horsepower* IS 300 and 306-horsepower* IS 350 demands its share of attention. But the technology inside is also noteworthy. Advanced tuning enhances fuel efficiency, while weight reduction was achieved by using advanced casting techniques and shaving off material, down to the micron.

ALL-WEATHER DRIVE

Fun doesn’t take the day off for foul weather. By automatically allocating engine power between the front and rear axles from 50/50 to as much as 30/70, all-wheel drive can help provide enhanced traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and conditions.

TURBOCHARGED PERFORMANCE

Lexus IS

TURBOCHARGED PERFORMANCE

Bold design is only one way the new IS stands apart from the crowd. When developing the IS Turbo, we didn’t outsource our turbocharger design like some automakers. It was engineered with our own highly evolved twin-scroll turbocharger technology. The result? Impressive power and low-end torque that deliver responsive performance you can feel the moment you accelerate.
