Next Generation Lexus Is To Be Showcased

Recommended Posts

At next month's New York International Auto Show, Lexus will show a concept vehicle that will preview the replacement for the IS300. The overhauled IS is due out by early 2006. While Lexus is planning for a new IS sedan, company officials say it may kill the IS300 wagon, a perennially slow seller in the United States. The IS sedan, however, will become a higher-volume model.

I guess this will be the 2006 Model...yay my warranty finishes April 2006...can think about it if they don't screw it up...:D I m gussing they might screw it up because the current one are too good for it's price...there are not going to be anymore JDM's from next year onward....

...and the chance of a 4cyl TURBO 3SGE with at least 205KW.....????

No, they'll cock it up and give us a jelly-mold rounded IS300 designed for the yanks!

Have to wait & see!  Petrol may be $1.90/litre by then anyway!


if it's under the Lexus badge it won't be a 3S-GE..from memory we are getting a new generation 3.0 V6 with 184kw and 301Nm Torque Power Engine....alot power improvement but not much in torque....also a 6 speed automatic gearbox with tiptronic mode, It will be another nice car to drive in, they will supply manual models outside US in the 2006 model, no more Sportscross and a big chance of a coupe and convertible...
