Lexus Announces All New 2018 LS Sedan

Lexus Announces All New 2018 LS Sedan

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus Announces All New 2018 LS Sedan! The Lexus LS is known for its high quality after 28 years of brand excellence, setting the standard for powertrain smoothness, ride quietness, craftsmanship, attention to detail, documented dependability, and long-term quality. The 2018 Lexus LS sedan is the all-new, fifth-generation vehicle that “reflects a strong, uniquely Japanese identity and approach to luxury” offering a human touch on innovative technology. With an availability in over 90 countries, the model will feature an all-new twin-turbo V6 engine that gets an impressive 416 horsepower, with a starting price around $75,000 after reaching US dealers in February of 2018.

“Not only will the LS symbolize the Lexus brand, it will become the definitive new-generation luxury car embodying Japanese tradition and culture,” said LS Chief Engineer Toshio Asahi. “As such, this global pinnacle must go far beyond what the world expects from a luxury car. We set previously unheard of targets and resolutely pushed ahead towards these ambitious goals. The customers who are going to want to own a Lexus flagship are already surrounded by luxury on a daily basis — people who have a sharp eye for authenticity to begin with. We wouldn’t turn their heads with a conventional premium product.”

“The LS is the flagship of the Lexus brand,” said Chief Designer Koichi Suga. “More than any other model, it embodies the history and image of Lexus and serves as a symbol for everything the brand stands for.”  Utilizing the all new GA-L platform, allows for higher driving quality on the LS 500 F-Sport edition.

“The LS is designed to be the top runner in advanced safety technologies,” said Lexus LS Chief Engineer Asahi. The all-new Lexus LS provides world-class safety technology through the combination of two advanced Lexus safety systems, Lexus Safety System+ and Lexus Safety System+ A (Advanced) Package, which are ultimately aimed at reducing traffic fatalities.

Lexus LC 500 Named a Best Driver's Car

Lexus LC 500 Named a Best Driver’s Car

By | Lexus Cars | No Comments

Lexus LC 500 Named a Best Driver’s Car. Motor Trend recently released its list of Best Driver’s Cars and named the Lexus LC 500 to its lists. When the model debuted at the Detroit Auto Show we originally reported, “The V8 will most likely carry over unchanged, but Lexus is expected to use a 10-speed Aisin gearbox, which would be a first for a production car. The hybrid, meanwhile, should be a significant performance upgrade over the GS 450h, making a combined output of more than 450 horsepower. If that’s not enough power for you, Lexus has also apparently hinted that an F-version is coming. It’s rumored to be powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 making around 600 horsepower.” Check out what the experts have to say below:

Motor Trend Says

“Despite the isolation, it’s surprisingly fast and very difficult to upset with Trac/VSC off (when on, it’s maddening). It does have the most understeer of any of the vehicles on 198, but like a good BMW, at least the understeer is clear and distinct. Lexus hasn’t tried to mask it with weird EPS or rear steer inputs.” – Ed Loh

“Most shocking. I was expecting nothing. In fact, I argued against even bringing the LC 500 along because it’s just so big and heavy. I was wrong. Folks, we have an athlete on our hands. It’s a bit heavy, sure, but the fundamentals are all there. Gorgeous sounds from the V-8, a gearbox that loves shifting, reflexes that hide the size, and fairly stout brakes. Great body control, too. Not a car you’d think you can push, but— surprise!—you totally can. Amazing job, Lexus.” – Jonny Lieberman

“How can this car have 10 gears and never ever be in the right one? There were at least a dozen rejected requests for a downshift, so I had to learn to slow the car on the brakes before requesting a downshift. On the way up it was fourth gear almost all the time, which doesn’t give it any snap. The soundtrack is good, but the response is not there. I’m not a fan of the rear-steer. There were several corners where I didn’t know where the steering was going to point me. The brakes were fine, except not a lot of feel through the pedal, similarly not a lot of feel through the steering with a tendency for understeer that just doesn’t say sports car but grand tourer.” – Chris Walton

“The exhaust notes on the LC are intoxicating and so unexpected coming out of a Lexus that you check the rear mirror to make sure that a race car is not coming up behind you. The engine sound builds; you hear it ratchet up with each gearshift with an almost unnatural precision. But the highlight is the amazing downshift burbles. I am a sucker for a downshift burble. It makes me go weak in the knees.

It doesn’t carry the speed as well, and I found myself gripping the steering wheel and trying to muscle it while also braking more than I should entering the corners, which contributed to a disjointed drive—ironic coming from Lexus, the king of the smooth ride.” – Alisa Priddle

“Part of the driving experience is tailoring all the vehicle settings to your liking. Whoever designed the infotainment system should be stripped naked, covered in honey, and tied to the top of an anthill. Everything is buried under layers of menus, and the only way to access it is by using a hilariously inaccurate touchpad. It took me five minutes to figure out the seat coolers on the first day, and it stayed on throughout the week of testing because it was too much of an effort to turn it back off. Good luck changing channels on the satellite radio.” – Derek Powell

RANDY SAYS

“Mostly I was waiting on understeer. Then by the time I could finally get to some power it was much nicer. I like the steering, I thought it was really accurate, reasonably quick, and I thought it was a fun car on track except for that entry understeer. It was like this one characteristic that just doesn’t fit right. Go into the corner, and it was just, ‘Ah! I want to go that way.’ Then, on power, it’s beautiful, and it was a really fun car to drift on my cooldown. Even though it doesn’t want to turn under hot-lap driving, it’s really easy to drift it if you’re not.

“It was beautiful, smooth car accelerating, and you hear that engine note and go ‘Wow, where is that coming from?’ I look around to see who’s coming by, and I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s me.’ I just love that.

“Even in Sport+ mode, it’s still a little soft on the racetrack. Damping is pretty soft. I actually think the spring bars are in a really good place, and I kept pushing Lexus on that, too. I consulted on that car three and a half times, and every time I told them it’s too soft, too soft, too soft.

“The brakes are very reactive—you get a lot. So they don’t need an aggressive application. Don’t be stabby. I did once, and it just wouldn’t stop. It wasn’t making the brake gs that I knew it was capable of. So from then on I would just, you know, apply the pedal gently, and then it stopped great. Stopped really well for a street tire.”

Lexus Returns as Official Automotive Sponsor of New York Fashion Week

Lexus Returns as Official Automotive Sponsor of New York Fashion Week

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus Returns as Official Automotive Sponsor of New York Fashion Week! Lexus recently sponsored the Spring 2018 New York Fashion Week, after sponsoring the event since September 2015 after Mercedes Benz stepped down as lead sponsor. We initially reported, “Lexus became the main sponsor of New York Fashion Week after Mercedes-Benz stepped down as title sponsor in 2015. Although Lexus has not decided to have New York Fashion Week called the Lexus New York Fashion Week like Mercedes-Benz. Andrea Lim, engagement marketing manager at Lexus says about this decision, Many luxury auto brands share a lot of same core principles [as fashion brands]. There’s the same appreciation for luxury, design, craftsmanship, attention to detail; both are big-ticket purchases.”

Similar to prior years, Lexus will provide a fleet of nearly 100 courtesy transportation vehicles for show attendees and industry insiders traveling to and from Skylight Clarkson Sq, which is the official venue this year. This season, Lexus is offering an experience that gives the public a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a photographer by top fashion talent on an actual editorial set featuring a Lexus installation. Last fashion show, Lexus created an amazing light display alongside model veteran Coco Rocha. The space was engineered by revered fashion photographer and  Interview Magazine Editorial Director, Fabien Baron and created by Stefan Beckman. The set is inspired by the new Lexus LC 500.

Learn more about how Lexus Returns as Official Automotive Sponsor of New York Fashion Week in the official press release or on the website lexus.com/NYFW.
