The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F-Sport Performance is the Last V8 Compact Sport Sedan

121 329 Megtekintés

The 2021 #LexusIS was a huge disappointment when @Lexus unveiled it last year. For 2022, the company is looking for redemption with the return of the V8 powered #LexusIS500. Part of a new line of F-Sport Performance models, the #IS500FSportPerformance is an odd name, but it is the spiritual successor to the old #LexusISF from 2008-2012. The #IS500 has the same 5.0L V8 making 472 HP and #Lexus claims it will get to 60 in 4.5 seconds. This new sport sedan goes on sale this Fall.
We're also on:

  • Between this new IS 500 F-Sport Performance and TLX Type S coming later this year, it looks like those of you yearning for a high-performance Japanese sport sedan may finally have something to look forward too! We can't wait to hear that screaming V8 roar when we get behind the wheel later this year. Hopefully, Lexus can get the pricing right for this new IS 500.

    • But as several people said above that Lexus IS most likely gonna be overpriced...

    • Like the IS 500 isn’t even comparable to the TLX Type S tho the Lexus would absolutely dominate that Acura lmao😂

    • Did you forget the CT5 blackwing? Has a V8, pretty compact

  • Lexus is the only one offering a V8 for a reason, it’s a dinosaur. On top of being slaughtered at the fuel pump and road tax prices that are going to make you want to cry for your mommy. In 5 years time you won’t be able to give it away.

  • Only thing I don’t like is both Toyota and Nissan put significantly taller gearing in the V8s. It hurts them for that car selling 0-60. The RCF this year received a slightly lower ratio. These 5 liter V8s aren’t low end torque machines.

  • I think the talk about IS-F vs F Sport Performance is way overblown. I am just so grateful that Lexus is releasing this.

  • No one wants a gas eating v8. This is not a “got to have it” i rather have a 500-600hp EV.

  • The Marketing Dept. at Lexus can't make up its mind what it wants to do. Why not just call it the IS-F? Why not keep using the AA80E gearbox? The side gills were cool, not sure why they took those away. Looks like they did away with the Brembo brakes.... Most likely won't be able to compete with the new BMW M3. I will keep my 2013 IS-F.

  • The new Lexus IS models are selling great. Sales up 120% the first quarter of 2021

  • AWD would of made this a must buy. Kind of disappointed its rwd only.

  • I'm in Australia...I just got my 350 F's lovely. Very happy....but I'd have gone the extra mile for the IS 500... Sadly, not for here. I'd certainly buy it.

  • Pretty spectacular all around. I really want to hate it... but I can’t. Very very sweet ride.

  • It’s not a true F. It’s just an IS 350, F type with a V8. So calling it IS 500.

  • They only did this I’m guessing as a farewell knowing that they will be moving on to the twin turbo V8 they decided to give in to what everyone was asking for . Hence why they named it is500 because they are reserving ISF for the twin turbo engine . If they price this over $70k it will be super disappointing .

  • A great option for enthusiasts. But honestly, how many V8’s are they going to sell? How many of the people applauding this in the comments are actually going to buy one?

  • You could probably get into a low mileage GS F for the same price of one of these new. With the GS F you get HUD, better seats, a more premium feel, but still the power of the V8, reliability, and you don't have to eat the depreciation of a new vehicle.

    David BoyceDavid Boyce2 hónapja
  • I think we are learning their lesson. eliminating the V8 and trying to swim with the rest of the group with turbo charged v6s is not helping sales. Nobody wants a v6 for premium price. Especially the same v6 that goes in the Toyota Camry

  • If I want a sports sedan I will buy the mid engine corvette being a domestic product and if I want a 4WD I'll get the wrangler. If I lust after a sedan than this is it. NO German products that require extensive maintenance and suspicious reliability (except Porsche). The recent 2021 JD power survey showed Lexus, Porsche Kia etc. Mercedes, VW all fall below Industry average. Domestic products are more reliable.

  • Not to be that guy just that complains about everything but if the IS500 had a manual trans it'll literally be in a class of one. Aside from that I'm just really glad there's a new V8 RWD compact sedan, and from Lexus of all manufacturers. Side note : Toyota does have a 6-speed trans that fits the IS platform ( look : Mark X GRMN ) although I don't know if it could handle the extra torque.

  • Car companies getting away from a V8 is as Dumb and bad for business if McDonalds got rid of its fries. Luxury cars must have V8's and higher. A V6 in a entry level of a brand is ok but, you must have some V8 offered in your lineup thats a car and SUV/Truck lineup. LS without a V8 isnt a luxury car engine wise and no Turbo V6 can make up for it. Happy seeing Lexus put this in the ISF 500. Great car.

  • So let me get this straight.. 1. They introduce LFA but tech was outdated and way overpriced 2. They take tech and parts out of LFA and throw it in an LC. But still an overpriced underdog 3. Share engine and make an IS500 in hopes to tap into the V8 market 🤷

  • Take a video about this , at least something in your life will do global satanic elite it consists of around 10,000 people , from well-known Merkel , Sarkozy, bill gates , Zuckerberg , Sergey Bryl and Larry page , the Bush family, the Clintons , Rockefellers , Rothschild, Baruch,Leiba, Morgan, Carnegie , almost all Royal and Imperial families from around the world and many other names .They are behind the world wars, they created and spread the coronavirus, the main goal is to ensure the arrival of the Antichrist and prevent the second coming of Jesus and the last judgment , such conditions are allowed by God, because before destroying Lucifer (iblis),because he disobeyed God and did not worship Adam , he asked not to kill him, to leave him alive, and for this he will experience the creation of God - man in particular and humanity in general, Lucifer(iblis) . For mankind there are 3 options for the outcome of the first coming of Antichrist and the fall spirit that it has not been rewarded with the 2nd coming of Jesus and then judgment will not, and will all be erased in the dust , except for the approximate 190.000 people who helped the devil to defeat the mankind and the Second variant of the Human spirit on a global scale will be such strong that will not work with them to bring the Antichrist , and will have 2 coming of Jesus and then there will be judgment . Well, the last option they will achieve the coming of the Antichrist , but humanity in general will fight for itself and God will let down Jesus and we will win and there will be a last judgment .They are fighting for eternal life for themselves, and for us they want to leave the option that we will all be wiped out and not even bother with the last judgment . The outcome depends on each of you , and your life after death .This is the information you need to know why Satanic is actually doing all this .And our task is to stop them . And let me remind you that the world is developed by industrialists , scientists , farmers , teachers, well, no matter how satanists, they have always slowed down industrial progress

The IS500 F Sport for those that want the NA engine and the glorious sound that comes with it, and the IS-F TT for those that want the performance. We all know Toyota knows how to make a good drivers car, they can do it for both.

  • Many things to comment on I suppose. One of the things not discussed is reliability vs the European competitors. They are all pretty much Turbo's now where this is an NA, and not just any NA, from what Donut Media said : The Final Form of the 1UZ motor - Which is legendary for it's reliability and the ability to be a 'million mile motor'. I would also like to point out - dying breeds of cars tend to have potential for good resale value. A good condition manual is300 from 2002 in California will go for like 8k. I think reliability and being part of a dying breed can make this Juice worth the Squeeze. Yeah sure it's MSRP is 56k, but if I can have it for 20 years, put 500k miles on it, and still sell it for 5k. Pretty sure My wife would approve. Right Guys?
