The new 2021 Lexus IS 300 features a 241 horsepower 2.0-liter, turbocharged and intercooled inline four-cylinder engine equipped with an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission which integrates a G-force Artificial Intelligence system that monitors multiple performance parameters to determine the optimum gear selection. The IS 300 AWD is powered by a 260 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 delivering to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The IS 350 is powered by a 311 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission in the IS 300 RWD and a six-speed automatic in the AWD version. The IS F SPORT lineup is restructured in the 2021 model year, as F SPORTs will only be offered on the IS 350 powered by the 311-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. The new 2021 IS expected to arrive in dealerships in late Fall of this year.
