LEXUS UNVEILS 2011 IS F SPORTS SEDAN

By Drew Johnson

Lexus has rolled out its high-performance IS F luxury sedan for the 2011 model year. Although the 2011 model technically marks the car’s mid-cycle refresh, Lexus says the new model “differs from its predecessor in only a few well-thought-out details.”

The 2011 IS F carries over with its 417 horsepower 5.0L V8, but the mill is now compliant with Euro 5 regulations. An eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission remains, allowing for a 0-62 run of 4.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 168mph.

The IS F receives a revised suspension for 2011, sporting new front and rear coil springs and shock absorbers that provide better ride comfort. Lexus engineers have also fiddles with the IS F’s rear suspension geometry, helping the car to stay planted under load.

Exterior tweaks are limited to new LED running lights, but the interior gains a new gauge cluster that moves the tachometer and gear shift indicator to the center of the pod. The IS F’s interior also gains dark silver carbon fiber interior trim for 2011.

The 2011 Lexus IS F is now available for order.
