2018 Lexus LC priced from $92,000

Article by Christian A., on January 15, 2017

Wonder what else is happening in Detroit? Well, since the official pricing for the 2018 Lexus LC has been already announced, more audiences would surely be lining up to see what the new sports coupe has to offer.

The timing is quite perfect as the all-new Lexus LC is currently on display at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. According to Lexus, you can have the LC for as low as $92,000 MSRP. Assuming the destination and handling costs would be more or less $975, that’s still below $100,000.

The LC 500 variant will be able to generate 471hp and 398lb-ft of torque from its 5.0-liter V8 engine. We think this is a much better choice when it comes to price and performance. What’s more, this Lexus model will be the first to have the 10-speed automatic for its gearbox.

You can also get the 354 hp electric motor-run 2+2 coupe with 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine (for as low as $96,510 MSRP). Again, that’s less than $100K even if you add the destination and handling cost to the equation. If you’re in search for an eco-friendly sports coupe, this hybrid would make a perfect choice. Although the EPA details have yet to be announced, the V6 for sure would be more fuel efficient than its V8 counterpart.

Except for the engines, the two models will have the same standard features, which include Lexus’ latest Remote Touch Interface with built in touch pad, Drive Mode select feature, Paddle shifts and LED-powered headlights. It will also include the luxury division’s standard 10.3 inch TFT color display and Mark Levinson sound system.

When it comes to safety, both LC coupe models will come equipped with the brand’s Safety System+ package. It will have the latest technologies such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert with intelligent high-beam and steering assist, pre-collision system w/ pedestrian safety and lane keep assist.

For an extra cost, you can have either the hybrid model or LC 500 with more upgrades. These include the cold bundle, which comes with heated steering wheel and heated wind screen technology. There are several choices for the wheels including the 20-inch or 21-inch wheel sizes. You can also get the park assist and blind spot monitor upgraded or avail of the head-up display and limited slip differential along with other options.

Prices for the upgrades vary as it would depend on what model and which package you availed. But it can go for as low as $2,400 up to $10,000. Your choices consist of Performance, Sport w/ carbon, Sport w/ glass and Touring packages. The new 2018 Lexus LC coupe will be available across the US beginning in the spring. Watch out for it!
