2021 Lexus IS: Specs & Features

The luxury sports sedan was recreated 20 years ago with the release of the 2021 Lexus IS. The top sports sedan title had been held by one German manufacturer until the Lexus IS entered the game. The immediately popular sports sedan is known amongst the car world for its extraordinary driving experience. The sports sedan segment is as competitive as ever and we knew that good enough won’t cut it. ‘The relentless pursuit of perfection’ meant that the 2021 Lexus IS had to be ahead of the competition, and it is. Let’s take a deeper look at the brand-new 2021 Lexus IS.

2021 Lexus IS

IS: Performance

For the performance-minded drivers, the allure of the 2021 IS comes from the high horsepower and rear-wheel drive capabilities of the F SPORT. It truly is the calling card of the Lexus IS and we’ll revisit it soon, but first let’s talk about what else the Lexus IS the other options. The standard engine is a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder is paired with an 8 speed automatic transmission, that can create 241hp and 258 lb-ft of torque at its highest marks. And is able to get up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The first optional engine is a 3.5L V6 that creates 260hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, it is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and option for RWD or AWD. And in comparing the miles per gallon, the RWD comes out on top with 28 mpg and 26 mpg for the AWD. The F SPORT also comes standard with a 3.5L V6 but it is tuned to perfection to create 311hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. That means you can rocket from 0-60 in just 5.6 seconds but still expect to get 24mpg on the highway. Mercy.

2021 Lexus IS design


The brand-new 2021 IS may share some design cues with the previous model to a certain degree, your eyes will certainly be drawn to the all-new wheel options, taillights, and headlights. The available triple-beam LED headlights will be sure to light up the street ahead, while the L-shaped blade-style lightbar lining the rear of the sedan will be a pleasant sight for those left behind. 18-inch wheels come standard on the Lexus IS, with the F SPORT getting 19-inch wheels for the first time. Jump inside and you will find push button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, an available power moonroof, NuLuxe-trimmed seating, 10-way power drive seat (8-way passenger), and push button start.

I have purchased 2 vehicles from this dealership. They always take excellent care of me and their prices are always fair. I like this dealership more than the Albuquerque store.

Chris Ortega was extremely attentive and caring for someone who required a full education on specifics about her new Lexis hybrid, He was super patient through three tutoring sessions that I requested, addressing each concern and, in every case, giving practical solutions. Also he worked hard to make the financial part acceptable. Soon after, I had to drive to California, had a great trip knowing what to expect and how to deal with whatever might come up. Rest assured that he is putting out exactly what you would hope Lexis stands for!

Chris continuously went above and beyond to satisfy what I wanted in a car buying experience including driving the car from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, delivering it to my front door, walked me through setting up my phone AND thru the car features.

I told Chris I needed a car, somewhat serious but not committed. He showed me an option I actually really liked, asked me what kind of payment I was looking for, and made it happen for me! Very professional and easy to work with. Good personality that keeps it real and made it feel like he was there for me, not the other way around. Keep up the good work, awesome employee!
