The new 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago, IL is a powerhouse of performance and comfort. However, it’s stunningly clear that no matter how well it drives and accommodates, it’s a beautiful sedan that provides the latest in technological features.

 

Let’s discuss some of the ways that the 2017 LS 460 wins and impresses for its price point in Chicago city.

 

1.     A Beast of an Engine

 

Unlike the Lexus RX 350, it doesn’t have a hybrid engine. But for good measure, both have 6 engine options, with the 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago offering a 4/6L V8 with 386 horsepower, which is 91 more than its contemporary.

 

Of course, the basic, L and F Sport options each offer either RWD or AWD, and with an 8-speed automatic ECT-i transmission with sequential shift, it’s easy to maintain its top track speed of 130 MPH. It’s worth mentioning that the AWD works full-time, and with a TORSEN limited-slip center differential, it easily maintains a combined EPA estimated fuel rating of 18 MPG.

That’s impressive for a high performance new Lexus, however the Lexus RX 350 does achieve better fuel mileage with a less powerful engine.

 

2.     All-Weather Drive with Active Safety Features

 

19” wheels have a lot to do with this. We also haven’t mentioned the over 116” wheelbase, or the 4 driving modes, including Eco, Normal. Sport and a Snow option. Combine with an AW drivetrain, power distribution is maximized with greater grip, to provide smoother and more reliable steering.

 

Optionally, you’ll have access to the Adaptive Variable Air suspension system available for the 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago, IL, which automatically tunes the springs and shock absorbers, no matter what the Chicago weather forecast is.

 

Even the hybrid version of the Lexus RX 350 offers all-weather technology, which is a sign of dedication to the technology. However, the RWD is effective as well, distributing power to either side.

 

In terms of safety, the latest in semi-autonomous smart features are available as standard equipment. These include a backup camera with dynamic gridlines, top of the line Brembo brakes with ABS, EBD and electronically powered braking systems, and a lot more.

 

3.     Deep, Intuitive Smart Infotainment

Much of what seemed cutting edge is now standard on the 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago, IL.

 

Features like the 450-watt 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system that rely as much on hardware to produce theater-quality 3D surround sound, are optional. However, many true recent innovations are available as standard parts.

 

For example, Lexus provides their entire Enform app suite. You’ll find the same on the Lexus LS 460, however services like instant status and maintenance updates, location, traffic and Chicago temperature and weather are just a start. A 24-hour-a-day representative will direct you to any of the Chicago, IL hotels based on your subtle preferences.

 

Of course, a remote touch interface, eyes-free Siri compatibility and a complementary app top the cake for standard features on the 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago, and we’ve only gotten started.

 

4.     Gorgeously Crafted Luxury Design

 

Expertly designed collision crumple zones are a flare of the quality commitment for the 2017 Lexus LS 460 in Chicago. However, let’s not forget this is an economically priced, powerful luxury vehicle.

 

It takes a step up from even the Lexus RX 350 by offering advanced 4-zone climate concierge technology. Black leather trim is standard, however a uniquely crafted Shimamoku detailed inspired by and created with espresso wood is available.

 

Its 16-way adjustable seats are a clear indication of class, and the elegant exterior is covered by a scratch-resistant coat of clear color. There are limitless areas to explore in design with this Lexus car model, and if you’re lucky enough to find one pre owned in the future, you’ll be in amazing condition.
