posted in: Lexus, News 0

Lexus will showcase its full line up of luxury vehicles at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show, including the all-new 2022 Lexus NX and IS 500 Performance Launch Edition, making their first auto show appearances. The Chicago Auto Show takes place July 15-19 at McCormick Place, located at 2301 S King Dr.

Guests of the auto show will have the opportunity to witness the all-new 2022 Lexus NX, which has been reconceived from the inside out to be more in-tune with the driver. Arriving in dealerships this fall, the 2022 Lexus NX boasts an entirely new platform, with panoramic moonroof and striking 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels. Taking performance further, the new NX features powerful turbo and hybrid powertrains. Proving there’s an NX for every driver, it also adds a new 2.5-liter in-line 4-cylinder engine, and in select regions, the first-ever Lexus Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, the NX 450h+.

The 2022 Lexus NX delivers a long list of firsts, including the all-new Lexus Interface multimedia system designed with the North American market in mind. The 2022  NX also offers next-generation technology that alerts the driver and passengers to avoid the risk of accidental door contact with vehicles or cyclists with the unique Lexus-first Digital Latch with Safe Exit Assist. The 2022 NX also comes equipped with Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.

As the first model in the new Lexus F SPORT Performance line, the IS 500 Performance Launch Edition is powered by the same naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine introduced in the standard IS 500. With only 500 serialized vehicles to be sold later this fall exclusively in North America, the IS 500 Launch Edition will generate 472 hp at 7,100 rpm and 395 lb.-ft of peak torque at 4,800 rpm. This engine offers the linear acceleration and V8 muscle that driving enthusiasts crave.

Standing apart from the standard IS 500, the 2022 IS 500 Launch Edition interior builds upon Takumi craftsmanship with elevated interior materials, including sporty two-tone black and gray Ultrasuede® trimmed front and rear seats, door accents, and center console.  Outside, the IS 500 Launch Edition is sure to turn heads with standard 19-inch split-seven-spoke forged alloy Matte Black BBS® wheels from the IS F SPORT Dynamic Handling Package. The vehicle will be sold exclusively in Incognito, an all-new color for the Lexus lineup.

Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
