Default Do You Think The New Lexus ES-F Will Hit 0-60 In 4.0 Seconds?

Its got an 8-speed automatic transmission and the V8 engine borrowed from the IS-F. The engine has been detuned to make around 390 horsepower. I heard that the new ES-F will compete directly to thw Cadillac CTS Vsport.

"the," not "thw." Sorry for the bad grammar. I

It was my robot-inspired cell phone.

It's not the HS-F, not the IS-F, not the GS-F, and not the LS-F, but the ES-F.

IS is to ATS, as ES is to CTS; GS to XTS; LS to LTS.

The 2015 ES-F will be an AWD model.

The ES-F weighs in a neighborhood of 3,675 pounds.

Here are my guesstimates:

0-60 mph: 4.0 sec

0-100 mph: 8.8 sec

1/4 mile: 12.3 sec @ 116 mph

Top speed: 155 mph (limited)

Yes, 12.3 at 116 in the quarter mile--same as that of the sixth-generation Chevy Corvette Z06.

Here are the key specs from Lexus' website:


Displacement: 5.0 liters (303 cubic inches)

Horsepower @ rpm: 390 hp @ 6,600[*]

EPA Fuel Economy Ratings (city/highway/combined): TBA

Transmission: Eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift automatic transmission with paddle shifters, Manual mode and torque-converter lock-up clutch for gears 2-8

Brakes: Four-wheel power-assisted discs, with four-sensor,four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brkeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist[*]

Length: 192.7 in (4,895 mm)

NO, the Lexus web site claims zero to 60 in 4.6 seconds.

The math doesn't work. 390hp won't take a 3800 pound car (estimated weight with a V8) to 60 in 4 seconds. I really don't see the point of an ES-F. That ES chassis (really a Toyota Avalon) can't handle that kind of power in the corners. They'll try to tweak the suspension to make it work but sticking a heavy V8 is going to screw up the handling of an already less than optimally balanced car.

Not even close. When you're talking 4 seconds, you're talking Corvettes, lightweight and sportscars, not family sedans....not even family sedans with big engines.

Don't get me wrong, it'll be plenty fast for a family sedan....but still a family sedan and still not 4 seconds.

Well, it is! It was not sufficient Lexus is 395 horsepower (390 hp in the U.S. and the UK) to avoid high insurance costs. But the weight is calculated (average driver weight = 170 lbs.) And trap speed (116 mph), the output is actually 474.903 or 468.4603 horsepower bhp.
