The team at Lexus International, led by Chief Engineer Naoki Kobayashi, has been working on the release of the first-ever 2022 Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance vehicle. Due for release in 2022, the Lexus IS 500 F SPORT arrives on the UAE market with a V8 engine that can reach 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Today we are going to take a look at what we can expect from the new 2022 Lexus IS 500 release in the UAE.
Thanks to the addition of the 472-horsepower V8 engine, drivers will appreciate the new member of the IS family with the release in 2022 of the Lexus IS 500 in the UAE and beyond. Both car enthusiasts and those looking for a high performing new vehicle will appreciate the additions to this model compared to the standard F SPORT models. The company estimates the vehicle will offer 24 miles per gallon fuel economy on highways. It comes with an eight- speed automatic gearbox, which will be the only option for this vehicle, and is similar to those found in the IS 300 and IS 350 RWD models.
This will be the first model released in the Lexus F SPORT Performance range, and the release date of the Lexus IS 500 is expected to be in 2022. It offers a maximum output of 472 hp at 7,100 rpm yet only gains 143 pounds of extra curb weight compared to the previous IS 350 F SPORT. Other improvements to previous models include the quad exhaust system, which works in conjunction with the V8 engine to offer a high-performance driving experience. Sport S+ offers sportier handling and there’s also a custom mode available for the vehicle offering various options for the powertrain, the air conditioner, and the chassis. You’ll easily be able to tell the difference between this model and other F models, thanks to the addition of the black badging on the side of the vehicle.
Since the release of the 2021 IS, Lexus has worked to focus on elevating their vehicle’s
handling and performance. The goal with the new 2022 Lexus IS 500 in the UAE is to deliver
a new generation of vehicles that will provide a more balanced and refined driving
experience than ever before.
Thanks to the brake response, handling, and steering, you’ll enjoy a controlled experience regardless of the surface you drive on. The new IS 500 takes the previous improvements to the range one step further by offering a dynamic handling package and Torsen limited-slip differential as standard. Drivers will enjoy improved traction when exiting turns, as well as excellent straight-line stability.
The new 2022 Lexus IS 500 release in the UAE is exciting for drivers and dealerships alike and will be a welcome addition to the line-up of Lexus vehicles currently on offer. The Lexus IS 500 F SPORT’s V8 engine reaches 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, so it’s a powerful vehicle that offers excellent handling for its users. With the perfect combination of a sporty and sophisticated look, this will be an exciting addition to the UAE market in 2022.
