Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance Coming This Fall

The Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance is powered by a 472-horsepower naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission that features drive mode select Sport S and Sport S+ making it capable of delivering a 0-to-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds with a manufacturer-estimated 24 mpg highway rating. The Lexus Safety System+ has a Pre-Collision System, which includes Frontal Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection and Bicyclist Detection, Emergency Steering Assist and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control can be activated above 30 mph and is designed to perform vehicle-to-vehicle distance controls down to 0 mph and can resume from a stop. DRCC also includes a new feature that allows for smooth overtaking of slower vehicles. Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/ SA) is designed to help notify the driver if it senses an inadvertent lane departure at speeds above 32 miles per hour via steering wheel vibrations or audible alert. The all-new 2022 IS 500 F SPORT Performance is expected to arrive in dealerships later this Fall.
