Press Release : What’s New for 2016 Lexus IS

Lexus has made some changes to the IS lineup entering 2016.  The 2016 Lexus IS lineup will consists of 3 models – new introduced 200t, new IS 300 AWD, and IS 350.  The previous IS 250 and IS 250 AWD are discontinued.

With three distinct models in the lineup, there are three different engines – 2.0L Twin-Scroll turbocharged engine, new 3.5L V6 225hp engine, and 3.5L V6 306hp engine.

Powering the new Lexus IS 200t (RWD) is the 2.0L turbocharged engine which was modified from the same turbocharged engine that was first integrated in the 2015 Lexus NX hybrid.  This new engine, backed with an 8-sp AT, generates 241 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, giving the IS 200t a 0-60 mph acceleration of 6.9 seconds and a top track speed of 143 mph.  Estimated fuel economy for the 2016 Lexus IS 200t is 22 city/32 highway/ 26 combined mpg.

The new Lexus IS 300 AWD is powered by a modified 3.5L V6 engine, which is paired with a 6-sp AT to produce 255 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque.  The 2016 Lexus IS 300 AWD can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 6.1 seconds and reach 131mph top track speed.  The estimated fuel economy for the 2016 Lexus IS 300 AWD is 19 city/26 highway/21 combined mpg.

Available in both RWD and AWD, the IS 350 retains its previous year 3.5L V6 engine that produces 306 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque.  The IS 350’s engine has the same size and specs as the one that will power the IS 300 AWD, but combining with a different fuel system (Stoichiometric direct-to-cylinder injection system VS.  Electronic Fuel Injection in the IS 300 AWD), produces more horsepower and torque.

Offered for all three 2016 IS models are the well-known F SPORT package which give the car a sportier look and feel with unique 18-inch wheels and suspension tuning, and the new Premium package which offers power/tilt steering wheels and rain-sensing wipers.
