The 2024 Lexus LC coupe and convertible feature numerous upgrades, most notably a touchscreen infotainment system.
The LC500 continues to use a 471-hp 5.0-liter V-8, while the LC500h has a 354-hp hybrid system.
The 2024 models will go on sale in June in the U.S.
The most desirable Lexus, the stunning LC, has finally abandoned one of its key flaws: the frustrating touchpad infotainment controller that's been disappearing from the luxury brand's lineup recently. The 2024 Lexus LC500 and LC500h finally adopt a newer infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen and benefit from other new color options and customization possibilities.
The updated dashboard doesn't look radically different, but the central display screen is now a tablet-style touchscreen rather than the previous model's recessed screen that was controlled by a finicky touchpad on the center console. This also means that the screen runs the newest Lexus Interface software, which enables over-the-air updates, a voice assistant, and additional connectivity features.
New exterior colors include Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0 for $595 and Copper Crest for $500, and there's a new interior color called Copper Crest. Lexus will start offering a Bespoke Build program that allows customers to customize their LC with a wider range of color combinations, wheel options, and optional features. The Bespoke Build option opens up choices such as a carbon-fiber roof, different colors for the softtop in the convertible version, and a new blue and white interior color scheme that costs an extra $1900.
There aren't any mechanical changes for the LC coupe or convertible models. The coupe continues to offer either a naturally aspirated 471-hp 5.0-liter V-8 in the LC500 and a 354-hp hybrid powertrain in the LC500h that uses a 3.5-liter V-6; the convertible is V-8-only.
A park-assist system and 21-inch wheels are now standard. And pricing is up significantly, with the 2024 LC500 coupe now starting at $98,850, a $3250 increase from last year. The LC500h hybrid's uptick is more modest, going up $550 to $102,150, while the LC500 convertible is up $2700 to a new starting price of $106,350. Lexus says that the 2024 models will start arriving at U.S. dealerships in June.
