2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota Camry

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota CamryEven as SUVs and crossovers are taking a bite out of sedan sales, the Toyota Camry still managed to be the best-selling vehicle in 2016 without a truck bed.

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Lexus LSWhen considering that the Lexus LC 500 made it to production virtually unchanged from concept form, it was reasonable to think that the LS would similarly follow suit. Especially when the LS shares the LC's GA-L platform. Unfortunately, it didn't pan out that way.

2018 Lexus LC 500 Reviewed: More Than Just A Pretty Face?Lexus has gone through a transformation, from being the subdued alternative to the likes of BMW or Mercedes to a brand with bold styling, and this has paid dividends in its sales.

Dan Neil Reviews The 2018 Lexus Lc 500

Dan Neil Reviews the 2018 Lexus LC 500Dan Neil has reviewed the Lexus LC 500 for The Wall Street Journal with his usual heavy-handed wordplay:
The six-figure GT coupe market isn’t hotly contested these days, and if you read no further, please know I think the LC 500 takes the stuffings out of anything in this category. The interior is gorgeous—nobly appointed, serene in space and design, with smart tech deposed in a stitched-leather landscape with dull-silver streams and suede door gussets shaped like dune ridges.
