Are California Cars Different


Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying a 2006 SC430 from California. I am in GA. Are cars built for the California market any different(Harley Davidson bikes have extra emission systems for the CA market which rob power)?

From http://www.lexus.com/contact/faqs/mechanical2.html , "Lexus models are 50-state certified which means they meet both the Federal emissions standards and California emissions standards."

All V8 Lexus cars took a power hit for the 2006 model year. The 2005 SC430 engine is rated at 300 hp but the 2006 SC engine is rated at 288 hp.

Lexus cars sold nationwide have for a number of years been certified as "Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (U-LEV)"
