It’s April Fool’s time again! And all the car #brands are in on it. Normally most of these are bad. But this one is good, kind of, even if it’s an unintentional send-up of Lexus drivers.
The Lexus LS 400 has garnered acclaim for being one of the most durable, maintenance-free, high-mileage-conquering luxobarges out there. These merits are largely well earned. However, what nobody seems to mention are two maintenance nightmares that can bring the car to its knees. I’m going to explain these issues and…
The Lexus GS sedan was always kind of the odd duck in the lineup. It was never as popular as the front-wheel drive Camry-based ES nor was as luxurious as the larger, flagship LS. A recent rumor suggests that the GS sedan may be discontinued. If this is true, I’m not sure people are going to be too upset about it.
Sometimes those sleep deprived, middle-of-the-night Craigslist spelunking sessions end in the discovery of a true unicorn—something that appears to be perfect and pristine on the outside, an ideal fit for your garage and your dreams. But even if you hit on such a vehicle, it can hide dark secrets within. This was one…
Stop calling a compact luxury sports sedan that isn’t a BMW a “3 Series fighter.” There really are such things as sports sedans that aren’t from Bavaria, and the current Lexus IS is one of them. Here’s why it’s more than just an also-ran, and why its new-for-2017 turbo four-cylinder engine makes it worthy of your…
Last year at Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus had a pretty large booth that mimicked some kind of Nordic dance club bar one might see in Oslo or Stockholm, all white and glass and steel, with flashing lights, dancers, and Lexus staffers in thin, crisp reflective suits. This year? Carbon fiber race cars. That’s it.
Yet again, race cars hold the answer. This time, it’s with an aesthetic grievance: Lexus’ creepy hourglass grilles. While impressive in their complexity, the end result on the road car looks like some kind of unsettling alien web meant for trapping possums on the road and shooting them into an alternate dimension.
Hello, poors. It’s me again, the wealthier and more successful version of you.
Love it or hate it, you kind of have to admire the intricacy of the Lexus spindle grille, like how it is on the 2018 Lexus LS.
Want a massive, comfortable, beautiful Lexus coupe with a naturally-aspirated V8? The Lexus LC 500 will cost you no less than $92,000. If you’re curious, that’s around $20,000 less than its German rivals.
The Lexus LS is the OG Lexus, the big S-Class fighting sedan that put Toyota’s luxury brand on the map way back in 1989. Now it’s back for its fifth generation, and while it remains conservatively handsome, it has the biggest change yet: there’s no V8 this time, but rather a twin-turbo V6.
While most people are busy trying to make a difference and change the world in a positive way, I find myself deep in thought wondering: “How much power does my car really make?”
Can’t decide what color Lexus to get? With the company’s one-of-a-kind LIT IS sedan, you can choose a different color, design, and even animation every morning as you head off to work. Instead of paint, the vehicle is covered in 41,999 programmable LEDs turning it into a giant, rolling display.
Modern Lexus just doesn’t have a very pretty face, with the brand’s own best argument for the “spindle” styled grille being that it gives the cars a “unique” edge. Unfortunately we’ll still have to look at it on the space jets of our future, if the new sci-fi movie Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets is…
You like blades and edges and that crazy Predator grille? That is literally what the Lexus UX Compact Crossover is made of. What a scary machine! I am deeply afraid of this car.
Lexus is so proud of their Kinetic Seat Concept that they’re giving it its own spot at their Paris Auto Show display. Think they actually built it, or just pulled a prop out of the Zoolander 2 set and hit it with a few Lexus stickers?
