Translogic 165: 2015 Lexus RC F Biometrics Test
Dec 01, 2014 - 3:55 PM - by Lexus News
Filed under: Gadgets, Coupe, Performance, Lexus, Translogic, Technology, Videos



A traditional vehicle review goes like this: Reviewer drives car, reviewer gathers thoughts, reviewer relays vehicle impressions to audience. But what if instead of explaining what it's like to drive a given car, the reviewer could simply show the audience their response to the vehicle? With advancements in wearable biometrics technology, it's now possible to replace car review adjectives with cold, hard data.

Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Palm Beach Raceway in Florida to gauge his physiological reaction to driving the all-new Lexus RC F, with a little help from biometrics experts at Emotiv and Hexoskin. From his brain to his body, Jonathon's vitals are measured as he takes to the track in the... [Read More]

Lexus considering V8 Supercars racing program
Nov 30, 2014 - 12:18 PM - by Lexus News
Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Lexus, Australia, Racing



Just a few years ago, Holden and Ford were the only manufacturers competing in Australia's V8 Supercars series. But those days were left long ago in a cloud of smoke on the track, and are only disappearing even further in the rearview mirror as the latest intel suggests Lexus could be ready to enter the series as well.

Speaking with CarAdvice.com.au at the local launch of the RC coupe, Lexus Australia chief Sean Hanley revealed that his office approached the race organizers to hold "very high-level discussions" about the Japanese luxury brand entering the series. The development is reportedly spurred by the warm reception the RC has enjoyed so far Down Under, and by an expected impending shift in the rules of the V8 Supercars championship. The series has been rumored to be shifting away from strictly eight-cylinder sedans to include coupes and other engine types - a move that would open the door to more manufacturers to participate,...

Lexus RX replacement to debut in Detroit?
Nov 26, 2014 - 5:54 PM - by Lexus News
Filed under: Detroit Auto Show, Sedan, Performance, Crossover, Lexus, Luxury



The 2015 Detroit Auto Show is shaping up to be a big one for Lexus, with Group Vice President Jeff Bracken confirming to Ward's Auto that the Japanese luxury marque will have at least one, and possibly two, all-new-model introductions.

Ward's seems to think that one of those vehicles will be the new RX crossover, one of the brand's most popular (and oldest) offerings. The complete and utter lack of spy photos of the new RX doesn't necessarily support Ward's argument, although if the new CUV ends up being based on the JDM Toyota Harrier, as previously reported, the absence of camouflaged images might make some sense.

As for that other vehicle, it's hard to say what we might see. Were we to put our money on it, though,... [Read More]

Lexus nixes RC convertible in favor of LS-based 3-row crossover [w/poll]
Nov 24, 2014 - 7:15 PM - by Lexus News
Filed under: Convertible, Crossover, Lexus, Luxury



When Lexus unveiled the LF-C2 concept at the LA Auto Show last week, it did two things: it previewed the direction in which the Japanese luxury automaker's design department was looking for the immediate future, and it previewed a cabrio version of the RC coupe (to replace the IS Convertible) on the other. But the latter, according to new reports, was ruled out before the concept ever took the stage.

Although the prospect of a convertible version was engineered right into the RC coupe's chassis, Motor Trend reports that plans to put such a vehicle into production were met with hostility by Lexus dealers, who were offered a two-door convertible instead of the three-row crossover they've been lobbying for.

As a result - and with a finite amount of development bucks on hand - Lexus is reportedly listening to its dealers, axing the RC Convertible program and proceeding instead with a seven-seat crossover. Plans to stretch the ... [Read More]

2015 Lexus LS gets tiny tweaks to try to keep up in LA
Nov 20, 2014 - 7:56 PM - by Lexus News
Filed under: LA Auto Show, Sedan, Lexus, Luxury, Technology



The 2015 model-year updates for the LS are certainly minor, but at least Lexus isn't letting its flagship sedan languish completely.

The biggest change for the revised model is an improved infotainment system with an updated navigation and dynamic guidelines for the backup camera. Lexus' Enform App Suite also allows owners to remotely control some of the vehicle's functions, including the door locks, ignition and climate control settings.

Among the litany of incredibly small tweaks, the dome lights now use LEDs, and the F Sport model that includes features like a sport-tuned air suspension and 19-inch forged wheels gets an added badge at the rear. The changes have increased the turning circle by 3.9 inches for models with the standard suspension and 18-inch wheels.

All of the changes are definitely minor, but hopefully they'll sustain the posh motor until its next iteration is ready.Continue reading 2015 Lexus LS gets tiny tweaks to try to keep up in LA
