The 2JZGE is a common version. Output is 215 to 225 hp JIS (158 to 169 kW) at 5800 to 6000 rpm and 209 to 220 ft.lbf (215 to 298 Nm) of torque at 3800 to 4800 rpm.
It uses Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection, has an aluminum head and 4 valves per cylinder with some versions using VVT-i, along with a cast iron cylinder block.
Part of the vehicles list from Toyota JZ family that employs the 2JZGE inline-6 engine are listed below:
- The AS300 (Chassis code TA-JCE-10 FR Gita Wagon, or TA-JCE-15, 4WD Gita wagon) powered by a 2JZGE inline-6 engine generating 220 hp JIS (162 kW) or 215 hp SAE (160 kW) and mated to only a 5–speed automatic for the FR Gita Wagon or a 4–speed automatic for the 4WD Gita Wagon.
Lexus IS vehicles sold in North America, as well as the Japanese hatchback/station wagon version called the Gita (called Lexus IS SportCross in the U.S. and Europe) were only available in the 3.0 liter 6-cylinder version (2JZGE) (the 2.0 liter 6-cylinder wasn't available). In the U.S. market, sales fell below expectations; after hitting a high of 22,486 units in 2001, IS sales dropped below the 10,000-unit mark in 2004. The IS 200 fared better relative to sales targets in Europe and Asia, while still well short of the sales volume achieved by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and other, mostly German-made competitors.
The 2JZGE powered IS series are popular amongst tuners in the U.S. because of their 6-cylinder engines and FR layout. The Altezza is mostly popular amongst tuners not only because of its possible engine swap for the previous generation Toyota Supra's 2JZ-GTE motor, but as it is viewed as the successor to the AE86. Modified versions of the 2JZGTE have been seen with over 750 kW (1000 hp).
