New 2017 Lexus LX 570 – Release Date, Specs & Info

Although the new 2017 Lexus LX 570 offers a seating capacity of up to eight passengers, abundant standard and luxury features, smooth ride, advanced off-road capabilities, and strong brakes, it suffers from an aging interior design, cramped third-row seat, and mediocre fuel economy ratings. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

The new 2017 Lexus LX 570 is just among the very few adept vehicles that are capable of tackling everything Mother Nature offers. The Lexus LX was conceptualized almost three decades ago as a counter to the Toyota Land Cruiser. The same holds true for the modern LX 570, but the problem nowadays is that not many shoppers are interested in hard-core ruggedness any more.

For 2017, Lexus has made a spirited effort in trying to salvage the LX 570 image by combining a slew of latest safety features, modern interior and exterior refinement, with serious off-roading capability to give an excellent SUV that can virtually offer optimum performance regardless of whether it is on asphalt or dirt.

It still shares a lot with the Land Cruiser on which it is based. Such as the serious off-roading capability and the sheer size. On the downside, though, the redesigned LX 570 still offers a cramped third row seat that is only suitable for elementary school going children. Other sons to expect from the 570 include a dated cabin that lacks a modern refinement. The price tag is rather high relative to what its competition offers while the 0-60 mph acceleration is sluggish.

Even as the LX 570 tries to catch up with modern times, it will still find it’s illustrious past a pipe dream in the modern era. Some of the rivals to consider here include the “A” rated Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. It offers anything from a considerable base price, quicker acceleration, spacious third-row seating to cutting-edge technologies.

2019 Lexus ES

When is the 2019 Lexus ES Release Date Predicted for?

The Lexus brand is going to offer us the newest 2019 Lexus ES car. This vehicle should mark the nest seventh generation of the popular ES models coming from Lexus. With rumors about this car going around for a period of time, we have constantly been hoping to see the newest incarnation. We also waited to see their new idea when designing this model. But as it appears, they are going to introduce new additions and at the same time stick with what the true fans of the brand. All in all, the company will welcome the 2019 Lexus ES to the car market.

The newest vehicle has been spotted recently and it has been making rounds. A camouflaged version shows a far more angular and aggressive looking vehicle. But also a model which sticks to all the staples a Lexus ES used to have. Based on the recent information about the model and the new kind of changes that we can see, there is no doubt that the car will become an interesting addition to the roster. The release date is thus predicted for late 2018 at best.

What could the Price of the 2019 Lexus ES be?

The car is still at least a year away, but the 2019 Lexus ES will most certainly change its price. We are expecting a price boost which will topple the current one. But it is not going to go too much over the limit of the price that buyers are expected to spend. The current set of Lexus ES cars starts at a base MSRP of $39,895 for the ES350, while the ES300h hybrid is priced $42,815. We are predicting that these prices will be similar and that both models are making a return. The price range is suitable for the car and it is standard for the segment. Look for the slight boosts in price but not something that you will regret buying.

2019 Lexus ES Latest Rumors

Make no mistake about it, the 2019 Lexus ES has been hinted for years now. There have just been no exact evidence when this car would come out. Now when we have solid evidence in terms of spy photos of the car, we are finally revealed and sure that the vehicle is going to make its long awaited debut. Our assumption was that this model was supposed to come out already. There was no exact idea what to expect from it. But the final set of pictures sort of confirmed the rumors that we knew all along.

There are mostly some vague photos available for now. But most of them are solid enough to give us an idea what the vehicle is going to be like. Much is still under the camo and will be revealed in due time, but our review will help with the most basic details about the vehicle.

Some Details about the 2019 Lexus ES Exterior

It is hard to determine the exterior of the 2019 Lexus ES with an untrained eye. But luckily our experts were able to deduce the possible changes that lie beneath all the camo. The vehicle is noticeably going to be more aggressive. It is depicted though it’s slimmer and longer form. The angular lines are going to make this version of the ES car be more modern looking which will benefit the buyers and also enhance the sales of the vehicle.

The formula that has been utilized so far is not going to change significantly. This is still going to be a very recognizable Lexus ES model. It will keep all of it staple parts and simply combine it with the needed changes that are necessary for the car. The usual mechanics which other Toyota cars have, like the Camry and the Avalon, will be kept here.

Some fans do not really enjoy changing to formula and the idea of the car too much. But there is probably going to be some parts which need to stay the same. All in all, if they manage to fine a perfect balance between the old and the new, we might be looking at a special new car which will grace the roads pretty soon. The luxury segment is getting back another contender now.

2019 Lexus ES Color Introductions

With the seventh generation of the 2019 Lexus ES coming soon, there are more esthetic changes expected to come. The car will certainly introduce a set of new color variants and it will mark the new beginning of the seventh generation models. It is going to be a combination of the old and the new which will keep the vehicle and its most necessary parts together. Unfortunately, the news is still scarce and we cannot confirm now which new introductions are going to be made. We are probably going to get the entire set of standard color choices, but it is still early to tell what the new ones are going to be.

Size and Dimensions

Based on the early spy photos, the 2019 Lexus ES is going to have different dimensions. This is still not confirmed but it is very much rumored that it might happen. As we do know that the vehicle is going to use the Toyota New Global Architecture underpinnings, it also implies that it will change the size of the car. Visually, the vehicle is longer and slimmer looking, but is also positioned a bit lower. It means that they are adopting some new modern elements for the vehicle and are giving it a sporty appearance which will certainly affect the overall impression and idea about the car.

Interior Gadgets and Additions

The inside of the 2019 Lexus ES is also subject to change. The level of development expected on the inside will most likely surpass that of the inside. This means that the interior of the newest Lexus is supposed to follow the brand’s luxury line and include a plethora of new additions. This will most likely affect the on board technology, comfort and design. Although we strongly feel that the design is going to be similar to the recent Lexus models, just adapted in size, we also predict that the technology is going to be the part that changes the most. It most certainly means that this car is going to be the most technologically advanced and safety model as well. But another thing that you can rely on is this car adding better and newer materials.

2019 Lexus ES Engine Specs and Performance

As far as the engine stats are concerned, the 2019 Lexus ES will have a very modern offer. The information that we have for now is that the base ES350 will probably manage with the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine fitted in the current car. This should guarantee a total output of about 300 horsepower, which is just enough to motivate the car and the buyers who want to enjoy the kind of a vehicle that we have here on our hands.

A great and interesting new addition is the newly added an eight-speed automatic, which is going to replace the current six-speed. Also, the vehicle is going to come with a standard front-wheel-drive setup, but will optionally offer an all-wheel-drive. The ES300h hybrid models will be using 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle inline-four which comes with a pair of electric engines. Allowing for a total output of 200 horsepower.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

Because we are still not given the newest 2019 Lexus ES specs, we have to work with the assumptions. The model will transfer the engine but it is still not clear to which extent. While we are looking at the data, we are predicting similar number for these vehicles. The current car is capable of accelerating to 0-60 mph in about 7 seconds. Since the car is changing the dimensions some performance specs may also change. So expect to get some of those changes here as well. The top speed might remain at 116 mph as things stand.

Newest Fuel Economy ratings for the 2019 Lexus ES

The fuel economy specifications of the 2019 Lexus ES is going to change. But there is not news by how much. We are probably say that the vehicle is going to shift the numbers and will most likely get a better score. But there is no news to tell by how much. The changes in the body are indicating that they are planning something different here. But we cannot conform it yet. There are no significant changes with the powertrain through. The best that we can hope to get is 40 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. They took these specs  form the hybrid version and they could still be very similar to the new car.

2019 Lexus GS

Newest 2019 Lexus GS Release Date Details

After spotting the newest 2019 Lexus GS at the Nurburgring track, there have been a lot of noise about the car and the potential release date. With the current generation, the GS models, the last of them, we are probably gearing towards a new model. These were the rumors about the car and it just so happens that all of the rumors were true. The subsiding sales of the Lexus GS forced them to do something. And even though most of the people through that they were going to pull out and substitute the mid sizer with the ES models only in the Lexus lineup, they decided for a completely different option.

Now when details about the car are mostly out there, we are able to learn additional things and news about them. One of them is that the car is going to be a hybrid. But based on the current life cycle of the outgoing car and the amount of changes that the 2019 Lexus GS version has received, we are looking at a released date in early 2019 or late 2018. Whatever the case is, the vehicle is going to be a 2019 model.

2019 Lexus GS Price Update

The price for the latest 2019 Lexus GS vehicles is still a secret. At this point it is too early to tell and there have been no official statements. With the vehicle still not ready to make its debut, we expect the company to change the price. As we are looking at a new generation model they are planning to make a slew of changes for the car.

It will enable the price for sure although there have been no announcements to say by how much. The outgoing model has the price of $46,310 for the starting vehicles. The most expensive trim going all the way up to $68,680, we are expecting and increase between $1,000 and $3,000 depending on the trim level and how you look at it. This is not a bad offer especially when we are getting a new generation vehicles. We are also expecting that the fifth generation of the 2019 Lexus GS vehicles improves the offer that the previous car had.

Newest Rumors About the 2019 Lexus GS

The rumors about the 2019 Lexus GS started emerging some time ago. In fact some of them included the GS brand being discontinued all together. Before the spy photos showed up, there was an idea that the fourth generation would also be the last. When the sales started plummeting down, Lexus wanted to discontinue the brand and substitute the mid-size model in their lineup with the ES vehicles. This is actually a good idea as these models were doing much better in terms of sales.

But they finally decided against it. The rumors remained only rumors and the vehicle was finally renewed for another go. It is an attempt to raise sales and at the same time keep a brand which ones held a pretty good position in the Lexus overall lineup. All in all, it does not hurt having the 2019 Lexus GS model. It might prove to be a great option for them as well.

What Exterior Changes can we Expect for the 2019 Lexus GS?

Immediately we noticed that the 2019 Lexus GS is going to employ some drastic changes. Based on the spy photos, even with all the camo, it is pretty clear that the car is going to change a lot. First of all, the classic spindle grille is gone and there is a whole different nose for the car. There is going to be a dual grille layout with a smaller sporty kind of a grille below. The headlights are changed as well and are recessed a bit. They also have a wraparound look around the fenders, with integrated side markers as well. The front end is also going to feature a new sleek and smooth hood. The new look is kind of a unique and will be a great new part for the design of the car.

The side view does not show anything specific. There is some masculinity added over the wheels wells. There is a new kind of a body line which is seen and it helps the car have more character than before. With the changes that are made the car is also a bit sportier compared to last time? The rear end is also going to change a bit and it adopts a horizontal there. It will in this case update the model and help it fuse with the entirety of the car. With it we are expecting to get a nice set of wheels and an overall better look for the 2019 Lexus GS.

Color Options for the 2019 Lexus GS

The newest 2019 Lexus GS is getting ready for its release. Based on the pictures they are going to invest a lot of thought in the exterior look of the car. The design is one part which is going to receive most of the updates for the car. But are there going to be some new color additions. The answer is positive, but unfortunately it is going to be somewhat of a secret which ones they decide to utilize. There are hopes that this new car gets to be one of the more advanced models in terms of its looks so we are expecting a great showcasing of colors to update the car and help it go even beyond the potential it has had so far.

Are the Dimensions Changing?

Based on how things look now, the 2019 Lexus GS is not changing its size. The pictures do show a car padded with a lot of camouflage. But there is no indication to think that the car is going to be any different when it comes to the size. The vehicle is going to feature the same characteristics which also means the same interior spacing. To tell the truth, these were not so bad and the vehicle was pretty balanced when it came to the dimensions. Thus the length of the car is probably going to be 192.1 inches. The previous car also had a wheelbase of 112.2 inches. Finally the height and the width are 57.3 inches and 72.4 in respectively. With these stats the interior volume is 98 cu ft and the trunk capacity amounts to 18 cu ft.

Changes for the Interior of the 2019 Lexus GS

Unfortunately, there are no pictures not a lot of information for the interior fo the 2019 Lexus GS. It remains a secret for now but it will be soon uncovered how the will look. As they changed the outer part of the vehicle, we are expecting equal change for the inside of it. This is a Lexus car, so we can unmistakably expect the luxury. With the majority of the car changing, perhaps the inside is going to be a refreshing new part as well.

Doing away with some of the staple elements which the Lexus cars are famous for is a risky choice. But sometimes you have to make bold moves in order to gain attention. Our idea is that this model will add an entirely new formula which will get the car the attention it needs. Expect to see updated technology and also newest comfort additions. Wood and leather are of the staples of luxury, so it does not hurt to have them here.

Engine Specs and Improvements for the 2019 Lexus GS

It is hard to tell whether the newest 2019 Lexus GS will use or update the current line of engines. The outgoing model has two engine options, the 2.0-liter, and turbocharged four-banger that is able to provide 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The second one is the 3.5-liter V-6 which is a stronger option giving us 311 horsepower and 280 pound-feet. But the model that was doing tests is obviously a hybrid powered mode. So we are expecting that a combination of a 3.5-liter with a battery and an electric motor gets to be thrown into the mix. It will give the car an output of 338 horsepower in total.

2019 Lexus GS Acceleration and Top Speed

With the newest 2019 Lexus GS and the changes that we are expecting to face for the powertrain, the specs will also be different. The model is yet to share these information and it is not likely that we get to have them soon. For now a top speed of 155 mph is estimated and an acceleration to 0-60 mph of around 6 seconds is certain.

Fuel Economy Improvements

The newest 2019 Lexus GS will most likely work to improve the fuel economy. The current rating of 22 mpg city and 32 mpg on the highway is decent but it is still something that  needs improvement. We will see if this is the version that gets to do so.
