While the European customers already receive the new generation IS, North American customers still need to wait, with only the IS F performance model still a choice.
The 2014 Lexus IS F delivers a 416-horsepower power mill, with track-focused engine and chassis performance technology, but still comfortable and practical enough to drive every day.
In its seventh year on the U.S. market, the IS F gains interior and trim changes: it has now switched to LED foglamps, has a new carbon fiber rear spoiler; all headrests embossed with “F” logo; Alcantara black trim added to doors and center console cover; black full semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats to replace the older black Alcantara and leather-trimmed seats and the red leather-trimmed seats receive black Alcantara inserts with red perforation and black leather-trimmed headrests.
Engineered specifically for the IS F, the aluminum 5.0-liter V8 produces 416 hp at 6,600 rpm and 371 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 5,200 rpm, mated to an eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift automatic transmission.
