Lexus LS 500 and LS 500h all-new, the fifth generation went on sale in February 2018, with prices ranging from $ 75,000 to $ 100,000. All-new in this case means almost; the rear floor and some rear suspension components carried, but others are new. We will soon be giving LS 500 impressions, but first let’s discuss the important points of this new car. There’s a lot here so let’s get out of this intro paragraph and dive right into the list:

  1. No V8. Lexus went with a pair of 3.5 liter V6 options under the aircraft carrier’s tents in the classroom where everything offers the V8 (except the V6-powered Acura RL, which they sell for about eleven years). Does this mean no one will buy a new LS? Not if they look at the spec sheet and compare the old V8 with the new V6. The non-hybrid V6 produces 30 more horsepower and 75 lb-ft of torque more on bands that are wider than the previous V8, and while spewing out fewer emissions. Petrol, a non-hybrid V6 makes 416 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque while hybrid cranks release 354 hp combined. The biggest difference with the non-hybrid vs. the old V8, which appears on the chart, is the torque from 1800 to 4000 rpm, which according to Lexus can you “really” feel. 0-60 appears in 4.6 seconds behind the LS-500 drive.
  2. Both transmissions are listed as a ten-speed automatic but the hybrid transmission falsifies it for six of the ten gears. The hybrid transmission has four “real” mechanical gears and six “synthetic” gears that reduce the feel of the CVT rubber band. But it is not a CVT, it is a planetary rings and gears that move and detach to create the feel of a tooth. Strange? Lexus explains: “The new system is based on the electronically controlled controlled variable transmission of the Lexus Hybrid Synergy Drive incorporated into the new four-speed automated equipment available at the output stage.The two systems work together to expand the overall range of gearing and improve the operation of the V6 engine across wider speed range than previous hybrids. “Got it?
  3. Unlike some competitors in the luxury sedan segment, the LS chassis is steel, not aluminum. The body panels are aluminum. Lexus said it chose steel for the chassis because it is stronger. Lexus says it is the most rigid chassis they ever made.
  4. It’s also heavy. Curb weight range from 4707 pounds to rear-drive LS 500 with coil springs to 5225 pounds for AWD LS 500h with Executive package. And that’s without executives.
  5. The LS rides on the Global Architecture – Luxury or GA-L platform first seen in the LC 500, a swoopy coupe with sporty pretensions. With a 123-inch wheelbase, the LS is a longer sedan version of it. Engineers say they can learn a lot about GA-L as they develop LC and be able to apply it all to LS development.
  6. There is LS F Sport available when launched!RWD Sport LS 500 F gets 20-inch alloy wheels with 245 / 45RF20s in front and rear 275 / 40RF20;a six-piston monoblock caliper grabs a 400mm front iron rotor while four pistons grab each 359mm rear disc;The optional Performance package on the petrol-powered F Sport models add steering ratio steering ratio, active rear steering and active stabilizer bar.It also gets its own spindle grinding version, F Sport trim, and F Sport gauges.
  7. Although it does not say specifically “the Chinese market,” LS has what Lexus calls “wrapping up luxury behind the back seat”.That includes optional back seats and massages (front and back), upturned backrest to support the tired executive’s children, and a rear 48-degree rear seat.Home, James!
  8. Fancy cues: traditional traditional Kiriko Glass ornaments fit the folds of the folds of the hands on the door trim.Do not worry, the glass is laminated for safety.In all there are nine interior color schemes plus two for F Sport – including Shimamoku, Art Wood, Wood Herringbone Art and special wood cuts Laser Cut.
  9. Acronyms!LS 500 loaded into gunwales with them.The chassis control is handled by VDIM, Integrated Management Vehicle Dynamics, which controls TRAC / TRC traction control, VSC (vehicle stability control), EPS (electric power steering), VGRS (variable gear ratio steering) and DRS (dynamic rear steering).If you get a airbag suspension instead of a coil spring, it also controls the newer advanced AVS (adaptive variable suspension).There are several hundred thousand more acronyms that include the safety system but we only have so much space here.
  10. Though the Lexus CoDrive – a dynamic radar explorer radar combined with LTA (tracking tracks) and LDA (lane departure warning warning), Lexus says that this is not an autonomous drive system.It certainly sounds like that, but Lexus says that you have to keep hold of the wheel.When will the car maker just release the robot and let us relax a little while driving in a mess?
