We received some great news at Peterson Lexus this week.
Lexus announced it will unveil the updated IS next week at the Beijing Motor Show in China. That’s about all we know other than what’s in this photo from Lexus! It’s apparent there’s been some stylistic changes so we’re excited to see what else is new in the coming days.
This IS went through some recent powertrain upgrades for 2016. The 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder is now in the rear wheel drive models which cranks out 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This powerful upgrade is married to an eight-speed automatic. The All-Wheel Drive models get a more powerful 3.0-liter V-6 that generates 255 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.
Stay tuned for some more exciting news.
