The 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible rides perfect, the suspension is well-tuned for spirited drives, the interior quality is impeccable, the styling resembles a concept car, and the oh so beautiful symphony from its 5L V8! And, being a dying breed, the Lexus LC 500 Convertible has fewer competitors to

Whenever a new convertible debuts, the most important factors are how quick the top can be raised or lowered, what colors the roof comes in (if it's cloth), and how much chopping the roof has affected the car's weight and structural integrity. In the case of the 2021 Lexus LC500 convertible, the answers are about 15 seconds, black or beige, and not much. As to the latter, the engineers placed a lot of emphasis on stiffening the chassis without adding too much weight.

We'll reserve judgment on that the efficacy of their work until we get the LC500 convertible out on the road. But the transformation to convertible included additional and relocated structural bracing plus specific suspension tuning to complement the "subtle" changes in weight between the coupe and convertible. There's a reduction in unsprung weight in the front suspension (even with standard 21-inch wheels, available in chrome or black) to improve the overall stroke, and the the rear shock-tower brace was reshaped and moved slightly. Additionally, the rear end has a special lightweight die-cast aluminum suspension brace, and a performance dampener for better ride comfort.

The moment you move to the side, however, the obvious lack of a rear hatch and the smaller glass area distinguish the convertible from the coupe. Move around to the back and we find more key differences like the fairings behind the seats and the repositioned rear window in between both seats. That means when you opt for the convertible, you can't see the 6.2-liter V-8 unless you open the trunk.

The LC coupe sounds fantastic and Lexus employs no electronic sound generation to enhance exhaust rumble for the convertible. Intake impulses from the LC500's 471-hp, 398-lb-ft 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 are carried through a diaphragm into a sound pipe that transmits the sound, not the air noise itself. A computer-controlled valve balances optimizing exhaust back-pressure and exhaust tone and volume at higher rpm.

Just outside that new top, the center high-mounted rear brake lamp has been moved from the top of the rear window in the coupe to the trunklid here. Active roll bars are hidden from view when not deployed.

Lexus says it has redesigned the climate-control system to adjust temperature automatically independent of whether the top is up or down. If the top is down, neck heaters built into the seats are designed to keep the driver's and front passenger's upper bodies warm. Lexus Climate Concierge with Upper Body Heating automatically manages the A/C, seat heaters, neck heaters, and steering-wheel heater. A wind screen is available, presumably at extra cost, while standard Active Noise Control consists of a combo of sound insulation and absorption techniques.

Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept debuts with in-wheel motors, in-trunk drone

  Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept debuts with in-wheel motors, in-trunk drone It's got edgy style, a fully electric powertrain and a little flying worker bot hidden in the back. This is Lexus' vision for the future.The concept is motivated by a quartet of electric motors, one housed within each wheel. Working in concert, they generate a peak 536 horsepower (400 kW) and 516 pound-feet of torque (700 Nm). That's enough thrust to motivate the 5,070-pound concept to 62 mph from a standstill in just 3.8 seconds. Not bad.

2021 Chrysler Pacifica First Look: New AWD For a Vantastic People Mover .
Will the new grille and all-wheel drive tempt any SUV buyers?The Pacifica's 2021 redesign includes a bolder new grille featuring a three-dimensional-effect diamond mesh and available satin-chrome finish, plus more SUV-like lower air intakes. In back, new full-width, two-tiered LED taillamps tighten up the look while also seeming curiously similar to those units on the 2020 Genesis G90 luxury sedan. These styling revisions and added rear-axle propulsion (AWD hasn't been offered on a Chrysler minivan since 2004) are both aimed at snaring a few of the myriad buyers fleeing minivans for sport utility vehicles.
