Isn’t it the first time a Lexus “rebadge” gets an engine the Toyota doesn’t get? What chances are there the ES getting 550h+ version the Crown Crossover or next Camry don’t get?
I swear if one more YouTuber car guy holds his arms stretched out in the thumbnail I'm gonna unsubscribe to them. That sh1t is annoying.
IS, RC, GS, LS and LC are all overrated.If Toyota is claiming the 0-60 time be 6.3 seconds, I'm expecting it to hit just the 6 second mark. Hell, maybe hit the 5's.
Toyota is notorious for underrating their performance numbers in the past decade and a half and they did the same during the 90's.
I still wish Toyota had the balls to make an efficient V6. I'm upset.
I know the T24A is the replacement for the 2GR but I'm sure the idea of a 4cyl replacing a V6 is still difficult for a lot of people. The same issue that plagued the LS. A single turbo detuned version of the LS TTV6 would have been lovely. replacing the 2GR with T24A which puts out less power than the 2GR is just adding salt to injury IMO. Lexus can do better.Realistically the 2GR replacement would be the T24A, and maybe a small turbo V6, 2.7L for bigger vehicles.
