We have received a set of imaginary images of new Lexus LM from respective channels. The new car will be based on new generation Toyota Alphard. According to previous news, new generation Toyota Alphard will be released in May 2023, and new Lexus LM is expected to follow and end production in 2023.
The design of Lexus LM in imaginary picture is very radical, design of front is very different from current model. The headlight design incorporates some classic Lexus elements such as iconic LED daytime running lights and more common multi-lens design.
In addition to radical grille design, front bumper also features enlarged air intakes which, together with split air intakes on front cover, give people a stiff feeling. The rest will likely remain same as current model, with more chrome trim on the sides and redesigned wheels.
If design of new car really matches imaginary picture, it will go in opposite direction of past. Although current Lexus LM is also based on design of Alpha, it is more luxurious and stately in style. In terms of details, I also like to use a lot of chrome materials to enhance high class feel of whole car, which is a relatively traditional treatment method.
In terms of power, LM will use Toyota's latest powertrain, including new 2.4T hybrid and 2.5L hybrid, both available for cash now. In particular, we should expect 2.4 T model. Not only power parameters are impressive, but it can also have quite good economic indicators.
As release time of Toyota Alphard approaches, LM will have more information. As a Middle East and domestic market-only model, it has not only achieved global success, but even forced local Japanese car dealers to re-introduce LHD LM with "reverse entry" method. ". In home market, Lexus LM has always been a theme-heavy model, as well as a "price hike" model. A big stalk of "not-so-big discount" broke through early on in its launch. . But now market has bounced back: in addition to more unique positioning of large four-seat version, regular LM version is even discounted. At present, value for money when buying LM cash is still relatively high. The new design may be more radical, which is not accepted by most consumers. In addition, market is improving. For consumers who like LM, this is a good time to start..
