LXE Podcast 16: Inside the Lexus & Toyota Product Showcase Event


If you’re a Toyota or Lexus enthusiast, this is the podcast you simply cannot miss. After attending the recent Product Showcase Event in Plano, TX, we take you under the hood and behind the curtain with sneak peeks and special insights including:

  • We finally got the answer: When and where is the Lexus LF-1 Limitless?
  • Confirmed: The first dedicated all-electric Lexus will be here in 14 months.
  • Will electrification come to future Lexus’ F products?
  • Hands on with the 2022 ES, IS 500 F SPORT Performance and NX.
  • F SPORT Performance vs. F: The differences are immediately clear on the track
  • Seat time in the 2021 LS 500 F SPORT: Did the refresh do enough?
  • Driving the Toyota Mirai – did it really start life as the fifth generation GS?
  • Seeing the 2022 Tundra in person, and Lexus discussing whether or not they would build a luxury truck.
  • First hints on the next-generation Sequoia, GX and 4Runner.
  • Is Lexus considering building off road trims – similar to TRD PRO – for their next-generation SUVs?
  • Driving the LC 500 and Supra back to back on Eagles Canyon Raceway: Which is really the better sports coupe?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening! As I reflected on all the information, I remembered the discussion about the LF-1 Limitless and how the response was about how every concept means something (if I remember correctly). This brings me to questions about other concepts like LF-FC and LF-SA. I'm especially interested in seeing the 6th generation LS mirror styling cues from the LF-FC to align with the previous generation LSes. Any details on the next generation LS by any chance?

So... That part about everyone else wanting the IS back...

In your opinion, 2023 for the 4IS? šŸ˜‡

Thank you, Lexus USA, for single handed (maybe) getting an all-new 4IS back on track and for showing we still want a proper compact sports sedan!

On Lexus Interface? I believe so - language compatibility across the globe.
cool. hopefully they allow every unit to have access to the languange no just the ones in the selling country. JLR has the ability to change to any language in any country.

Sadly, I don't think a 2CT is going to happen...

They could do something based on the Corolla Sedan, even with "only" an PHEV powertrain, but I don't see it happening anymore.

And considering that the current UX sits on stils:

And we even read about a BEV CT coming by 2020 (Here: https://lexusenthusiast.com/2018/04/16/next-generation-lexus-ct-coming-to-europe-in-2020/ ), the same time we get to see the UX300e, I wonder...

If this wasn't going to be the 2CT that got some transformation to become a SUV in the middle of the design phase...

Even next to the competition, dimension wise, it's more more like a 1-Series/A3/A-Class than a X1/Q3/GLA.

Search your heart and dream big, F1.

They've already said they're going higher with F.

What did we get the last time Lexus decided to really elevate?

Won't say any more for now.
