Slotting between a Tech and Advance package, the A-Spec trim adds unique styling front and rear, a slightly tweaked interior, and a couple of new features. It makes an already attractive SUV even more appealing but if Acura wants the MDX to remain the sales king, a full redo of the interior and powertrain will be necessary.
LEXUS PREMIERES LS+ CONCEPT FLAGSHIP WITH EYE TOWARD APPLICATION OF AUTOMATED DRIVING TECHNOLOGIES IN 2020 Lexus premiered to the world today its automated-driving-capable “LS+ Concept” concept vehicle at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 *1. It also unveiled at the show limited editions of the RC F and GS F, commemorating the 10th anniversary of Lexus “F” sports models. Aiming to contribute to achievement of a world free of traffic casualties, Lexus has been actively introducing advanced technologies based on its Integrated Safety Management Concept *2. And so that all people can enjoy safe and smooth mobility and the fun of driving, Lexus has been developing automated driving technologies. It aims for application in the first half of the 2020s of its “Urban Teammate” technologies for automated driving on regular roads. MAIN FEATURES OF THE LS+ CONCEPT The LS+ Concept, equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, indicates the future image of the “LS” flagship sedan. With its advanced yet dignified styling and automated driving technologies planned for application in 2020, the LS+ Concept was developed as a model that symbolizes Lexus’ foresight. Advanced yet dignified styling representing the future image of the LS flagship sedan As a concept vehicle that suggests the future look of the LS, the LS+ Concept produces a dignified expression as a flagship and indicates the direction of next-generation Lexus design based on Lexus’ L-finesse design philosophy *3. In addition to a boldly evolved Spindle Grille, with a large grille shutter that contributes to both improved cooling and enhanced aerodynamic performance, distinctive Lexus foresight is expressed in the LS+ Concept through, among others, partly laser-lit headlamps and rear combination lamps, as well as through electronic side mirrors. Latest automated driving technologies backed by AI Lexus is pursuing a world in which all people can enjoy safe, smooth and untethered mobility through automated driving technologies. Specifically, it intends to make automated driving from entrance ramp to exit ramp on motor-vehicle-only roadways possible by using its “Highway Teammate” automated driving technologies, which, with an eye toward application in 2020, are featured on the LS+ Concept. On motor-vehicle-only roadways, through appropriate recognition, judgment and operation by onboard systems in response to actual traffic conditions, these technologies can already enable automated merging, lane changes and diverging, as well as keep a vehicle in its lane and maintain vehicle-to-vehicle distance. The LS+ Concept can communicate with a data center to update its systems’ software, allowing new functions to be added. Meanwhile, AI that learns from big data, including information on roads and surrounding areas, ensures a high level of automated driving. The car, which can grow along with its users, represents a new age for the image of cars to which people can become emotionally attached. MAIN FEATURES OF 10TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED-EDITION “F” MODELS Ever since the launch of the IS F in 2007, the development theme of Lexus “F” sports models has been to create sports cars that can put smiles on the faces of anyone who wants to have fun driving, regardless of skill. This approach has raised the sports image of Lexus. The special-specification, limited-edition vehicles announced today and commemorating the 10th anniversary of the birth of “F” models are equipped with performance shock absorbers for improved steering stability and lightweight titanium mufflers, further enhancing the driving performance for which “F” models are known. CFRP (carbon fibre-reinforced plastic) is used in exterior components for greater sports appeal, and body panels are in matte grey. The interior comes in a special colour accented by the “F” symbol colour “Heat Blue”. This and other features accentuate the models’ distinct character. Lexus plans to sell 50 units of the limited-edition RC F and 50 units of the limited-edition GS F at Lexus dealers across Japan from around the spring of 2018. "SUBSCRIBE NOW"
Lexus Carves Out a New Flagship Luxury Crossover with Lexus LF-1 Limitless Like molten metal being forged into a fine Japanese sword, the lines of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept have the potential to shape the future of a flagship luxury crossover for Lexus. Lexus established the luxury crossover segment two decades ago with the global debut of the RX 300 at Detroit. It remains the top-selling luxury crossover despite nearly 50 competitors that have since entered the segment. Now, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept introduces a new genre of luxury vehicle: the flagship crossover. Combining high performance with unrestrained luxury, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless is a showcase of technology, innovation and the latest evolution of design at Lexus. Limitless in its potential and possibilities, this concept caters to the diverse lifestyles of our customers. Likewise, the possibilities for powertrains are limitless. The LF-1 concept could be powered by fuel cell, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, gasoline, or even all-electric. By around 2025, every Lexus model around the world will be available either as a dedicated electrified model, or have an electrified option. The innovative spirit of the LF-1 was created at CALTY Design Research in California. The design language is rooted in the simple yet elegant design concept dubbed molten katana. This design visualization fuses the organic shapes of liquid metal with the sharp edges of a traditional Japanese sword. Imagining that shift from a smooth, flowing mass into a solid, chiseled shape formed the basis for the fluid, yet aggressive design of the LF-1 Limitless. “This is our vision for a new kind of flagship vehicle that embraces crossover capability without giving up the performance and luxury delivered by today’s top sedans,” said Kevin Hunter, President, CALTY Design Research Inc. “The LF-1 Limitless concept incorporates imaginative technology while creating a strong emotional connection by improving the human experience for the driver and passengers.” It starts with the right proportions. The Lexus LF-1’s exaggerated dash-to-axle ratio gives it an athletic profile that evokes classic grand touring cars rather car than an estate wagon. Combined with a cabin that sits deep within the rear-wheel drive chassis and aggressive 22 inch wheels barely contained under bulging fenders, the LF-1 has a powerful stance that conveys its performance intensions at a glance. The low roofline and elevated ride height further emphasize that this is a crossover designed for performance with practicality. Like all current Lexus models, the spindle grille on the LF-1 is a core element to the overall design. On the LF-1 it’s been taken even further, with details that suggest the start of the spindle form at the rear of the vehicle that then continues forward toward the nose. The grille itself features a three-dimensional design with colors developed in house by CALTY. Ridges radiating away from the central emblem suggest magnetism guiding metal filings into shape. There is no chrome, as the LF-1 instead uses LED lighting around the grille that greets you on arrival. “Lexus models such as the RX have helped drive the global popularity of the luxury SUV category. This new crossover concept captures a future that involves a high level of dynamic capability and utility matched by a more exciting, emotional design that we hope challenges expectations in the category,” said Yoshihiro Sawa, President of Lexus International. In profile, the LF-1 has a clearly defined flow from front to rear starting with the fender line that extends from the hood all the way to the bottom of the D pillar. That line contrasts with the more complex surfaces below it like the wide, crisply creased front fender that transitions to the smooth, deeply scalloped front door. From there, the bodywork slowly builds back out again to envelope the rear wheel giving the LF-1 a coke-bottle shape evocative of classic muscle cars. A split spoiler grabs your eye at the rear of the Lexus LF-1 roof, but there are interesting curves and details along every inch of the rear fascia. The beautifully sculpted openings at each corner might look like exhaust pipes but they are actually vents for the air coming past the rear wheels. The shoulders above those wheels provide sturdy mounts for the sculptural taillights that extend well past the metalwork. Above the lights is the huge expanse of glass that extends over the rear seats to offer an uninterrupted view of the scenery thanks to the split spoiler on each side.

Ever since the spindle grille was introduced about 5 years ago, Lexus has been dealing with quite a controversial backlash regarding their overdone new exterior styling. Most called it an overreaction to criticism regarding the bland characteristics of previous models. Over the years, we've seen Lexus evolve the "spindle" grille into something that looks more well incorporated instead of "tacked" on at the last minute and the 2019 Lexus ES350 may very well be a huge step forward in design direction at Lexus. Taking the aggressive and sleek lines from the very successful new Lexus LC and LS flagships, the new Lexus ES F-Sport applies what they've learned to their best-selling sedan. This new version has a level of sleekness that was never quite present on the old model. Please check back on June 7th at 7am EST for our full review on the 7th generation 2019 Lexus ES F-Sport.
2019 Lexus ES DIGITAL SIDE MIRRORS and REVIEW – Lexus DIGITAL OUTER MIRRORS - Lexus will offer the world's first* Digital Outer Mirrors to be equipped on a mass-produced vehicle. - The Digital Outer Mirrors show what is on the left, right and rear of the car, displaying the camera's images on a monitor inside the cabin. They provide enhanced views of the area around the car at night and in inclement weather. - The Digital Outer Mirrors offer an expanded view of the car's surrounding by augmenting the display area during turns or when backing up. - The system's small cameras result in better forward visibility (no large side mirrors to block the view) and reduction of wind noise. By installing small exterior cameras on the front doors, Lexus vehicles will provide its drivers with a clearer view of the vehicle's surrounding area. The cameras in the Digital Outer Mirrors transmit the images onto 5-inch display monitors located inside the cabin at the base of the front pillars. Another advantage the Digital Outer Mirrors have over their conventional counterparts is that they are shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow, leaving the driver's view unaffected. The system automatically enhances the corresponding area―left, right or behind―when the turn signals are activated, or when the transmission is put into reverse. The view of areas around the car can be manually enhanced by the driver to obtain complete peripheral awareness of the area around the vehicle. By replacing the vehicle's conventional side mirrors with small cameras, side mirrors no longer block the view outside the front windows, resulting in improved visibility. Wind noise has also been reduced, resulting in a quieter cabin. The digital mirrors will make their debut on the new ES, which will go on sale in late October. At this time, the Digital Outer Mirrors will only be available in Japan. - LEXUS WING MIRROR CAMERA - DIGITAL OUTER MIRRORS - DIGITAL SIDE VIEW MONITOR - LEXUS DIGITAL OUTER MIRRORS - SMALL CAMERA - CAR SMALL CAMERAS - CAMERA WING MIRRORS - CAR CAMERA WING MIRRORS - LEXUS CAMERA WING MIRRORS - LEXUS DIGITAL SIDE VIEW MONITOR - LEXUS DIGITAL SIDE-VIEW MONITOR
