After one hundred years of automotive engineering evolution, the modern driver deserves power. JM Lexus understands, which is why this month, we’re honoring the top three most powerful models in the Lexus lineup. And the winners are… (Please imagine a drumroll in your head.)
The 2018 Lexus LC 500 (pictured above) uses a 5.0-liter V8 engine to produce an astonishing 471 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than enough to get you there on time in comfort and style. And with a top speed of 168 mph and 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds, this luxury magic carpet can practically take flight.
Most Towing Capacity
The 2018 LX 570 comes with a standard 5.7-liter V8 engine capable of producing up to 383 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque as well as propelling this three-row luxury SUV over mountains and down the interstate with equal ease. Not only can you seat up to eight passengers comfortably on the inside, you can also tow up to 7,000 lbs. That’s a boat or a couple of jet skis on a trailer, (AKA "an incredibly fun way to spend the weekend").
Most Powerful Hybrid
The 2018 LC 500h combines breakthrough Lexus Multistage Hybrid Drive technology with a 3.5-liter Atkinson-cycle V6 engine. This modern marvel puts out a combined 354 hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds. What’s really impressive is that this luxury hybrid cruises down the highway at a top speed of 155 mph with an EPA-estimated 35 MPGe.* The future is now.
These are just the top three models on our list, and there are many more feats of strength from Lexus we would love to tell you about. So chug that energy drink, down that double espresso, or crush whatever rocket fuel you’re consuming, and come see us at JM Lexus or contact us to learn more about the powerful options we have in our showroom.
