2019 Lexus LX Inspiration Series set to be unveiled at Los Angeles Auto Show

Lexus could be saying goodbye to the present generation of its LX luxury sports utility vehicles through a new exclusive model. Set to be unveiled at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show this month is the new 2019 Lexus LX Inspiration Series.

The hard truth with the Lexus LX is that the third generation of the luxury SUV has been in production since the 2008 model year. That makes the third-gen LX a 10-year old model, with latest refresh done around three years ago. Nonetheless, the LX luxury SUV managed to prove that it can be an inspiration for customers seeking a higher-level driving experience. To celebrate that, the 2019 Lexus LX Inspiration Series is bound to be unveiled at the upcoming 2019 LA Auto Show.

In this new guise, 2019 Lexus LX Inspiration Series is wrapped in a stealth Black Onyx exterior finish as complemented elegantly by a black front grille with a dark chrome surround. In addition, the new LX Inspiration Series comes with headlamps, foglights and windows with black trim, as well as smoked headlamp lenses. The dark theme is also evident on the rear section as the taillamps, license plate and back door all feature black chrome accents. Completing the dark theme of the new LX Inspiration Series are its 21-inch black alloy wheels with black center caps.

The news regarding the 2012 Detroit Auto Show keep coming and the latest vehicle to debut at the well-known auto show is an updated version of the Lexus LX570 sport utility vehicle. The folks from Autoblog report that a Lexus spokesman confirmed the new vehicle and we have to say that it was time as the current model keeps the same design from 2008.

Still, Bill Kwong, Lexus Communications Specialist, says that we don’t have to expect a dramatic change as the updated LX will get mostly cosmetic changes such as an updated sheetmetal and new front and rear ends. The interior will show minor modifications and a possible upgrade to the infotainment system.

Under the hood we expect to find the same 5.7-liter V8 engine delivering 383 hp @ 5600 rpm and 403 ft-lbs. @ 3600 rpm, mated to a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. And this is not the only model from Lexus coming to the Detroit Auto Show as the Japanese manufacturer will also unveil a new concept car.

It has been three years since Toyota’s luxury division, Lexus, unveiled the LC Coupe at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), which is also known as the Detroit Auto Show. Now at the same venue, Lexus is presenting to the global public an open -top study of the LC Coupe – the Lexus LC Convertible Concept.

As the luxury carmaker puts it, the Lexus LC Convertible Concept suggests future direction of its LC flagship. The premium carmaker calls the LC Convertible Concept as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup. In terms of looks, the LC Convertible Concept is essentially the LC Coupe without a fixed roof. For three years, not a few have imagine how the LC Coupe would appear if it become a convertible. The LC Convertible Concept is the realization of this imagination in metal.

As Tadao Mori, Chief Designer of the Lexus LC Convertible Concept, quipped, the show car re-imagines the unmistakable design of the LC Coupe as a future convertible. He added that the LC Convertible Concept is a blend all the best aspects of the original LC Coupe, but with the dynamic design of a convertible.

The 2019 Detroit Auto Show – formally known as the North American International Auto Show – is standing witness to the debut of the refreshed iteration of the Lexus RC F coupe. However, making it debut alongside the RC F coupe is a version designed to live on the tracks. We are talking about the new Lexus RC F Track Edition.

Essentially, the Lexus RC F Track Edition is a more hardcore version of the RC F. The RC F, in turn, is the sportier edition of Lexus’ entry level RC coupe that was unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. That makes the RC F Track Edition the sportiest and most hardcore evolution of the RC coupe.

The Lexus RC F coupe is differentiated from the RC by a number of performance-related upgrades, just like better suspension, greater power and aerodynamics. The same is true with the RC F Track Edition, as this version is laden with precisely engineered upgrades that help push its performance to a whole new level. For instance, compared to the RC F, the RC F Track Edition is lighter and definitely has larger wings.

It is an open secret that many of Lexus’ vehicle offering are or were derived from an existing Toyota product. This isn't really surprising considering that Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota. This means that an existing model from Toyota could have a Lexus version in the future. Would that hold true for the Toyota Alphard luxury minivan?

While Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota, the latter also builds its own luxury vehicles. The Toyota Alphard -- named after the brightest star in the constellation Hydra -- is one of these luxury vehicles. Also known as the Toyota Vellfire, the Alphard luxury minivan is available either as a seven-seater or an eight-seater. Aside from the usual gasoline version, the Alphard is also available as a hybrid, employing Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive technology.

The Alphard could be a viable candidate for “adoption” at Lexus. After all, a number of Toyota models had been adopted Lexus. For instance, the Lexus RX and IS were originally derived from the Toyota Harrier and Altezza, respectively. Likewise, the Lexus GX and LX were originally derived from the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado and Land Cruiser. In addition, the Lexus ES was derived initially from the Toyota Camry, and then from the Avalon.

Using cameras to replace the rear and side mirrors isn't something new. However, this technology is usually found on concept vehicles and some exotic cars. But at Lexus, this technology will be installed on one of its premium sedans starting October this year.

Lexus is introducing the world' first Digital Outer Mirrors, which will initially be fitted on the new 2019 Lexus ES. Digital Outer Mirrors make use of small exterior cameras on the front doors. They are mounted on stalks that swell on the place where conventional side mirrors are usually found.

The cameras send images onto displays – each monitor measuring five inches diagonally– inside the cabin, as positioned at the base of the front pillars. Instead of looking through the windows onto the side mirrors, a driver just have to view the images on the displays. This means that the driver’s view of the sides and the rear of the cars aren’t compromised when the windows are dirty or hazy.

Being a sponsor of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Lexus took advantage of the prestigious event to unveil two new concepts that represent the luxury carmaker’s different takes on the future of luxury – the new Lexus LC Inspiration Series Concept and the new Lexus UX 250h Concept.

The Lexus LC Inspiration Series Concept is essentially the second vehicle in the carmaker’s Inspiration Series. The first Inspiration Series was an LC 500 finished in Structural Blue and inspired by a superhero from the Marvel cinematic universe -- King T’Challa, the monarch of Wakanda. Both the LC 500 Inspiration Series and the LC Inspiration Series Concept are regarded by Lexus as ultimate expressions of their flagship coupe, as marked by bold designs and exclusive elements.

While the first Inspiration Series wrapped in Structural Blue, the Lexus LC Inspiration Series Concept is finished in Flare Yellow exterior paint. This concept rides on a distinct set of black 21-inch forged alloy wheels. It also features a carbon fiber roof and an active rear spoiler.

At launch, the new 2019 Lexus ES will be available in three guises: the ES 350, the ES 300h and the ES 350 F Sport.

The seventh generation of the Lexus ES premium sedan (2019 model year) has just been unveiled at the 2018 Auto China (Beijing Motor Show), boasting a more dynamic performance, an all-new exterior design as well as a comfortable and luxurious interior.

Essentially, the 2019 Lexus ES owes its latest evolved character to the all-new Global Architecture-K (GA-K) platform. Compared to its predecessor, the all-new ES is longer by 2.6 inches, lower by 0.2 inches, and wider by 1.8 inches. Its wheelbase is longer by 2 inches while its tracks are wider both on the front (by 0.4 inches) and the rear (by 1.5 inches). The Global Architecture-K chassis is a rigid front-wheel drive chassis that makes use of various grades of high-tensile steel to save weight. It features enhancements like an all-new double wishbone suspension design, rack-mounted electric power steering and a V-brace mounted behind the rear seat.

This new platform allowed the new ES to feature a dynamic yet fluid shape, as well as a characteristic silhouette highlighted by an aggressive downward slant. Thanks to its lower height and its fast roofline, the new ES offers a coupe-like profile, a lower and wind-cheating aerodynamics. Up front, the ES features a larger spindle with vertical bars on the ES 350 and the ES 350h, or a blacked out cross-hatch pattern on the ES 350 F SPORT.

The ever growing compact luxury crossover segment has something new for us again, as Lexus revealed the production ready UX at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Physically, it may not be as flamboyant as its namesake from 2016, but it will definitely still stand out in a crowd of compact crossovers.

Lexus UX has a huge corporate spindle grille that will truly catch one’s attention on the road. It also features full width taillights that make it look unique. In fact, this has been fitted by at least 120 individual LEDs. It sits on a set of either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels that were specially made for the crossover. This has also been tweaked in the wind tunnel to improve airflow.

The UX isn’t just about its good looks. Instead, it rides on the company’s newest GA-C platform, which makes handling much easier. As for the car’s dimensions, it is 177 inches (about 4.5 metres) long, with a 103.9 inch (2.63 metre) wheelbase. The company also boasts a segment-leading turning circle of 34 feet (10.3 meters).

To celebrate 10 years of its high-performance F cars, Lexus plans to come out with a couple of special edition models. These will include a 2018 Lexus GS F sedan, together with an RC F Coupe, and both will be dressed to make them stand out when they’re on display at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. Both models will be given the same gray suit with blue accents inside and out.

This may already sound familiar to you, as the automaker actually has already brought them to the Tokyo Motor Show late last year. But what we know at that time was that those models will be exclusive to the Japanese market only – apparently, that has changed.

And yes, we are right about that. Though it will just be a limited model in the US, with only 340 units, the good news is that it will be available, and it will likely be very difficult to get one. Only 240 anniversary versions of the RC F coupe will be built, and 100 units of the thinner GS F sedans will get the special treatment. Each Lexus dealer in the US will only carry one unit of the coupe.

It is only a little over a month away until the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, where Lexus is reported to unveil the small crossover, UX. And yet, we still have not seen any spy shots of it until now. Back in 2016, it was previewed at the Paris Motor Show by a namesake concept, as a competitor of the BMW X1 and Audi Q3.

But whether or not we will see the model in Geneva in a few weeks or not, the UX will be the model to take the place of the CT 200h in the United States, and it will actually stand as the entry level model from Lexus.

The automaker has actually already taken measures to register the UX200, UX250, and UX 250h with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It doesn’t guarantee anything yet but it likely means that there is a good chance it will sooner or later land in U.S. shores. Sales of crossovers and SUVs in this country add up to about 60 percent of the company’s sales. Therefore, adding the small crossover to the lineup just makes more sense.
