V8 gets appearance package with bright blue finish
IS 300 models add F Sport Design, F Sport 3 grades
The 2024 Lexus IS V8 is a Smurf. Lexus is adding Blue Vector as a halo colour, and is making changes and upgrades throughout the 2024 IS sports sedan lineup.
One new grade this year is the IS 300 AWD F Sport Design. It combines the 260 hp 3.5L V6 of the IS 300 and adds a heated wheel and power sunroof as well as 19-inch F Sport wheels, F Sport exterior styling, and a rear spoiler. The IS 300 F Sport 3 is also new, sitting on top of the F Sport 2 model’s larger screen, LFA-inspired cluster, and new for this year power-adjust steering column. The F Sport 3 adds 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio, triple beam LED lights, and panoramic view cameras.
Lexus will continue to offer the 311 hp IS 350 AWD in F Sport 2 and F Sport 3 grades. The former adds a power-adjust steering column and clearance and backup sensors, while the latter gets the same plus a new rear spoiler.
At the top of the line is the 2024 IS 500 F Sport Performance with its 472 hp 5.0L V8. This version of the sports sedan gains a Special Appearance Package that adds 19-inch BBS forged wheels, special floor mats with blue stitching, and comes with that exclusive and very bright Blue Vector paint.
The 2024 Lexus IS range is on sale now, starting from $46,650 for the IS 300 AWD Premium. The more powerful V6 IS 350 starts from $57,050, and the V8 runs from $75,850, all plus destination and fees.
