The full technicalities were not revealed, but we know it’s a 2-liter four-cylinder gasoline turbocharged unit that uses both port- and direct-injection as well as variable valve timing.

Made for quick accelerations, efficiency and fast response, the unit features cylinder head integrated exhaust manifold and a twin scroll turbocharger. Its combustion is also optimized through fan spray direct injection, assuring a complete and even fuel burning process.

The new turbocharged engine is expected to make around 300 hp and 350 Nm of torque and it’s expected to fit Lexus models like the IS, CT, RC and the production model of the LF-NX, being known under the 200t codification.
