Lexus LC Model History
All New and Used LC Model Years and History
An all-new 2018 model, the Lexus LC introduces high-end performance and luxury in a boldly modern manner. Heavily-inspired by Lexus' long-exhibited LF-LC concept car, the LC two-door coupe range is constructed on a new platform that is also being used for the 2018 LS sedan featuring a low center of gravity. Weight optimization is carefully considered in every aspect of the Lexus coupe with aluminum, high-strength steel and carbon fiber couped with chassis structure as well as the well-chiseled exterior. Buyers can choose a roof section or opt for a carbon fiber reinforced plastic paneling. Available in two high-performance variations, the 2018 Lexus luxury coupe comes as the LC 500 and LC 500h. Based on the same engine used with the RC F and GS F, a 471-horsepower, 5-liter V-8 engine is used in the LC 500 combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Lexus LC 500h is propelled by what is billed as a Multi Stage Hybrid powertrain. Integrating a 3.5-liter Atkinson-cycle V-6 gasoline engine with two electric motors/generators for a combined system output of 354 horsepower, the LC 500h's hybrid power unit incorporates a special four-speed automatic transmission to supply boosted acceleration. Equipped with a four-passenger cabin layout, the 2018 Lexus LC's inferior incorporates standard leather and NuLuxe seat upholstery, aluminum pedals, Lexus Enform Remote as well as a 12-speaker premium audio system.
