Lexus

Lexus was launched in 1989 as Toyota’s luxury vehicle division and to this day, it is present in more than 70 countries and their respective markets. Lexus has established its headquarters in Nagoya, Japan, but runs operational centers in Europe (Brussels, Belgium) and the U.S. (Plano, Texas). Here’s a little something people don’t tell you about Lexus: after its inception - which saw the introduction of the LS 400 and ES 250 sedans - a single consumer complained determined the company to launch a special service campaign, thus creating a new standard in personalized service. Moreover, back in 1991, after the introduction of the all-new ES 300, Lexus managed to dethrone both Mercedes-Benz and BMW to become the best-selling luxury import brand in the U.S. Lexus assembles its cars in Japan, in plants located in Chūbu and Kyūshū, but also at Toyota’s facilities in Tahara, Aichi, and Miyata.

2022 Lexus LX 600

2022 Lexus LX 600

The 2022 Lexus LX 600 features a new engine, latest tech features, and an uber-cool top-trim

The 2022 Lexus LX 600 is a revelation in many ways. It doesn’t just look different on the outside, it also comes with a whole set of new tech features, a new engine and transmission, and is even based on a new platform. But, more than all that, it has to fill the shoes of the Land Cruiser, which isn’t on sale anymore in the U.S. despite its cult following. The LX 600 is essentially an LC 300 with a better suit, and Lexus has even offered it in a sporty trim this time. But, all said and done, will the new LX be a runaway success and bring good numbers for the automaker?

Lexus And JAOS Corporation Create Off Road LX For 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

Lexus And JAOS Corporation Create Off Road LX For 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

It will offer new CFRP parts and a new set of wheels

When Lexus launched the new LX luxury SUV everyone was impressed by how good it looks and how luxurious the interior is. However, we have to admit the LX does not exactly excel when it comes to its off-road capabilities. For example, the U.S. will only get the F Sport model that will come equipped with only one rear Torsen limited-slip differential.

The Japanese market is a lot luckier: it will also get an LX Offroad trim equipped with three locking differentials. For the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus tries to see how far these off-road capabilities of the LX can be improved and it came up with a one-off edition developed in cooperation with JAOS Corporation.

2022 Lexus LC 500 Convertible

2022 Lexus LC 500 Convertible

A cropped-top Lexus grand tourer is all ready to rival the new Mercedes-AMG SL.

We have always appreciated Lexus for offering a lot for the price, and the LC 500 represents the brand’s flagship. Lexus decided to launch a roofless version of the LC 500 coupe and, with the 2022 model year, nothing much has changed. We get to see the old design language, which is not getting old either but the interior surely is. We love how the LC 500 Convertible looks and feels like a flagship from the Toyota-owned luxury brand. Like the coupe, the convertible gets powered by a big 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8, returning eargasmic exhaust notes, but now you can hear them raw by reclining the roof. Sadly, unlike the coupe, the convertible doesn’t get the Bespoke Build program arranged by Lexus to simply cater to consumer interests by letting them choose the right items to be fitted inside the cabin. The system is still not Rolls Royce like, but it is a nice start. The 2022 LC 500 Convertible gets a retuned suspension just like the coupe as standard and an extended color choice of up to nine.

Future Lexus Vehicles Won't Come With The "L" Badge At The Rear

Future Lexus Vehicles Won’t Come With The "L" Badge At The Rear

And it’s all because "change is coming"

Say goodbye to the "L" badge that we’ve become accustomed to with every Lexus vehicle, at least when viewing their cars from the back. That’s because the Japanese luxury automaker has thought that spelling out the Lexus name at the rear of its vehicles is a sign that "change is coming".

Drag Race: Lexus RC-F Vs Toyota GR Supra

Drag Race: Lexus RC-F Vs Toyota GR Supra

The GR Supra is quick, but can it deal with the V-8 power of the Lexus RC-F?

Drag races are particularly interesting when they are between two very different cars. With this in mind, Sam CarLegion gives us another drag race between two very different Toyota products. On one side, we have the light and nimble Toyota GR Supra, while on the other, a Lexus RC-F that can best be described as a Japanese muscle car. Both cars send power to the rear axle, but that’s about all they have in common.

What is the Cheapest Lexus?

The cheapest Lexus money can buy in the U.S. is the UX crossover. It starts at $32,150 but if you decide to go berserk on the configurator, that price tag will go up to way north of $40,000 really fast. The cheapest Lexus in Europe, however, is the still-marching-on CT hybrid compact car. In Germany, the Lexus CT can be had for €26,950 and is followed closely by the UX, priced at €33,950.

What is the Sportiest Lexus?

The sportiest Lexus out there is the RC F Track Edition. Powered by a naturally-aspirated 5-liter V-8 churning out 472 horsepower, the Track Edition is loaded with aero bits and bobs as well as carbon fiber (the hood, roof, and front splitter are all made of carbon fiber). The RC F in regular guise can dispatch the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.96 seconds, so it’s safe to say the Track Edition can pull off at least that.

What is the Most Popular Lexus?

The most popular Lexus is the RX. To put things into perspective, in April 2019, Lexus pushed 8,872 RX units, a slight decrease from 2018’s figures, which say Lexus managed to sell 9,697 units of the RX. If we are to look from the year-by-year perspective, then the RX sold 39,833 units in the first five months of 2019, after in 2018 as a whole, 41,197 RX models found new owners. Sales aside, Lexus as a brand has enjoyed a lot of popularity within the American hip-hop culture, with lyrics mentions by well-known artists such as Jay-Z popping up more than once.

What is the Most Expensive Lexus?

The most expensive Lexus is the LC Inspiration Series. Stateside, the special edition wears a starting sticker of $106,210. The V-8-powered LC 500, on the other hand, starts at $92,950, while the hybrid Lexus LC 500h will set buyers back at least $97,460. In Europe, however, things are a bit different, in the sense that both the LC 500 and LC 500h start at €101,400. However, Lexus still hasn’t sold all of its 500 LFAs, so we can also count the supercar as the most expensive Lexus thanks to a price tag of $375,000.

What is the Fastest Lexus?

The fastest Lexus is the RC F Track Edition. Thanks to the mechanical credentials stated above, the super-sedan can reach a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and go from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.96 seconds. On the other hand, the Lexus LC 500 clears the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) interval in 4.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).

Are Lexus Cars Reliable?

Lexus cars are very reliable. In fact, the 2018 J.D. Power dependability study for the U.S. sees Lexus take the first position, with just 99 problems per 100 vehicles. To make an even better idea of how reliable Lexus can be, the industry average was 142 problems per vehicle. Moreover, you might be familiar with the streak Lexus managed to bag as the most reliable vehicle in America for eight years in a row.
