I'm a big fan of Lexus and I am very excited about the new 350 Sedan 2014! Here is an overview of what to expect.
The Lexus IS 350 is in the middle of the Lexus IS line between the IS 250 and IS F. It has a robust 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 306 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. Rear wheel drive or all-wheel drive is offered, and a six-speed automatic transmission is standard.
Selecting an IS 350 is quite easy because it is quite loaded. Standard features include 17-inch wheels, xenon headlights, Leather seats, power front seats, automatic climate control dual zone, a sunroof, Bluetooth and a 13 speaker audio system. Optional accessories include a navigation system with voice control, heated and ventilated seats, adaptive headlights, a Mark Levinson 14 speaker system surround sound and an F-Sport package, which includes a sports suspension and sports seats.
First of all: major correction of the Lexus IS does not include engines. The 2.5 and 3.5-liter DOHC V-6 transfer, the output unimaginative, efficiency turbo four-baiting here, Bub. In other words, the IS250 still 204 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, and IS350 packs 306 hp and 277 lb-ft. You can cut boxes to the rear or four-wheel drive and regular sports or F. Most iterations of the same six-speed automatic chosen as outgoing car, but Lexus IS350s propulsion earned direct with automatic transmission in eight reports of the IS F. (No manual yet. Lexus told us that he thought could have been sold [!] Last year.) The built-in "G-Force of artificial intelligence" eight speed Sport mode , which can automatically capture high gear and switch to full torque converter lockup clutch in the entrance of a g-force sensor.
The IS 350 is propelled with authority, have a 306-hp 3.5-liter V6. It has an electronic stability program VDIM developed to keep the driver out of trouble. More sophisticated electronic control systems, braking stability and complement its additional performance. Safety features include driver and front passenger airbags knee. The disc brakes are large and effective four-wheel tight to the front by aluminum four-piston calipers. A building larger brakes are ABS, brake force distribution and brake assist.
Inside Lexus abandoned the more traditional look of the old is the central console for what could be a more technical aspects and layers that nods in the direction of the LFA supercar will be called. From top to bottom now live a seven-inch screen, the HVAC vents and air conditioning and audio controls. On the central tunnel, you will find Lexus infotainment control the mouse. " It performs a cursor on the screen, but it never ends quite where you want it. F Sport has a more direct tribute to the LFA in their dashboard as the central multi-screen dial that rotates into position when you turn the engine.
We have no information on pricing yet, but suspect that the 2014 move up while in the middle of the $ 40,000 budget of the car today to $ 30,000 less. Options include a rearview camera, navigation, a 15-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, a premium package with full LED headlamps, heated and ventilated seats, and an exclusive bundle that brings high-end goods, towels wipers with rain sensor, a Contrast stitching leather trim, anti-death angle monitoring, Cross Traffic Alert and a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel.
